At the school
"What do your parents do?"
"Are you interested in psychiatry because of your research experience?"
"what did you do during the months after you were laid off from your job?"
"Nothing really that interesting"
"Why did you drop out of college?"
"Read a Johns Hopkins publication, talked to other interviewees, SDN, etc."
"The energy of the school and the students I met. I felt like I was in a truly amazing place while I was there."
"I couldn't find a Starbucks - or anything else for that matter, near the school. I'm used to a school where you can walk to eateries and shops. Not the case with Hopkins. But then again, isn't that what everyone says about JHU - it's in the "ghetto", yadda yadda yadda."
"You are very limited in food options - only fast food close by was Popeye's, I got in late and I was hungry, and I was very limited in my options. We ate at Mamma Mia's in the morning - good cheap food but definitely not room service."
"This is my top choice now after visiting the school. I felt I got a very good look into the school because I stayed at the residence halls for two nights. I was able to hang out with first year students, go into the city and enjoy the night life with another interviewee staying in the res hall, and spend time with 4th years without worrying about getting back to a hotel. I felt like they value all their interviewees. I would advise people to stay in Reed. Yes, it's a dump, but my interviewer told me that when the students were given the option to renovate, they opted to allocate the money elsewhere into the school - and you can handle anything for one or two nights. Plus you get the option of hanging out with students there, and that was very cool."
