Anticipated Major: Computer Science

How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I found Hopkins when I looked for a college with a strong computer science program and small class sizes. I decided to apply Early Decision because I knew that Hopkins was my first choice and I wanted to improve my chances of admission.

If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) It would have to be something like “Intro to z80 Assembly for TI Calculators”.

What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? Honestly, probably being accepted to Hopkins!

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I look forward to taking challenging computer science classes. The coding classes at my high school are too easy! I’m also looking forward to befriending intelligent and dedicated students.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I will almost certainly audition for the Hopkins Concert Orchestra.

Complete this sentence: “I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for ____________________.” I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for my mother’s patience with me when I was younger. She did a lot to help prepare me for college/life in general.
