What are your general comments?

"I had an amazing time at Hopkins. Every single student I met at Hopkins seemed incredibly happy. Our tour guide was a really kind person who clearly was plugged into the community--he must have greeted at least 3 different doctors during our short tour, who all knew his name in return. The format is excellent. You don't start until 11:30, then have lunch with a faculty and student (who are not on admissions), and then the interviewers call you when it's your turn. You're done by 4pm, and you've met several faculty, the dean, and a ton of students by then. I really thought that the whole experience was excellent. The administration clearly cares a lot about the students, and it's so clear from everyone's attitude, that they absolutely love it there (including the faculty). I was really nervous because it was my first interview, but it must have gone okay because I got in! I left having totally fallen in love with Hopkins. " -Posted 01/30/2006 | Report Response
