When I was in my last year of high school, I just thought about what I'd like to be. Never really gave a thought to what university I'd like to attend. Then I thought about John Hopkins in my first year of college. What is John Hopkins like? Have you or anyone you know attended this university?
It's JOHNS Hopkins. If you can't even get the name right, you probably aren't really that interested.
You only hear about the medical school. Is it good for anything else?
NYC's Mayor Mike Bloomberg is a major donor.
Big lacrosse school. Very pretty campus. Science school (though the school of economics is now named after Bloomberg).
Also, when you're applying, if you call it "John" Hopkins, it's an automatic turndown.
You will never get into Johns Hopkins. Not with the way you write
Another "S" problem people from outside Maryland make is saying "Silver Springs."
I started receiving university recruitment brochures in grade 10, after taking the PSAT. Johns Hopkins offered an accelerated admissions program whereby you could enroll after grade 11, completing high school during your first year at university. I was eager to get out of my hometown and away from my family, I seriously considered that program. My mom wouldn't let me.
I ended up at Rice, which I hated. I've always wondered how different my life would be had I persuaded her to let me go to Johns Hopkins a year early.
I want to get my PhD at this university. It seems like a good place to be a scientist/mathematician. I was undergraduate STEM and master's degree STEM and now at 40 years old I want more.
Here I come.
