At the school
"Pretty standard stuff. The faculty interviewer had very pointed questions about my file and the student interview is closed file and was much more general."
"No real whammies."
"Relaxed. Reread everything I've written during this process. Read up on Hopkins."
"Students did seem happy. Great opportunities/flexibility to pursue additional degrees, travel and research."
"I felt there was just a general lack of enthusiasm/energy to the day. The facilities (at the least the pre-clinical teaching building) is old and dark. I left wondering what the big deal is about Hopkins, because I was not very impressed. I was also negatively impressed and suspicious when I heard two different students tell the exact same anecdote to try to convince us that the atmosphere is not as competitive as rumor would have it. Seems like it came out of some handbook. Reed hall is not a nice place at all. Think cinder block and shared bathrooms. Also, Hopkins does not have merit-based aid."
"All of the things I discussed above."
"Overall, I left feeling like I must have missed something, because I SHOULD have liked it, right? I recommend stopping by the new public health building. It has great study spaces and is really quite nice."
