What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student in Charles Village, and I found out a lot of useful info about the school from her. Also, since I was staying at such a close proximity to the school, I had a lot of time to get ready and go to my interview. Overall, I had a great experience at JHMS. The students seemed genuinely nice, the facilities were impressive, and while people at Hopkins seemed to have a lot of Hopkins pride, they didn't have the arrogance many times found in peer institutions.
