What was the most difficult question?

"Who is your favorite artist? Why? Does your appreciation of his/her work go beyond mere enjoyment? He really wanted me to go into detail on this. Since I know nothing about art, I really struggled to answer this question." -Posted 11/17/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hopkins is looking for a certain type of person. The interview day was set up to favor the most outgoing applicants. The down time with 4th year students was not the cutthroat competition that some people have complained about, but if you don't know much about pop culture, you won't be noticed, because that's what most of the discussion is about. I wish I had known this beforehand, because I would not have wasted my money applying to Hopkins. Oh, and make sure you take flip flops if you're staying in Reid, since the shared showers are kind of gross. And there's nowhere to hang your towel." -Posted 11/17/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The student interview was straightforward, just "tell me about yourself," etc. The faculty interview was much more difficult and kind of weird, see above. I was not accepted, but that's really okay since I got the impression Hopkins would be a bad fit for me." -Posted 11/17/2005 | Report Response
