How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? The swim coaches reached out to me and expressed their interest in having me on the team. After my recruiting trip, I knew it was the right place for me and applied for early decision.
What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Don’t turn down any options. Show interest in every college that reaches out to you because it may just be the one you choose to attend. Personally, I never would have found Hopkins if the swim coaches didn’t email me and if I didn’t respond.
What fictional character (Hermione Granger, Holden Caulfield, etc.) do you most relate to or most closely represents you as a person? Freddie from iCarly
If you could get ice cream with one person (real or imaginary; dead or alive), who would it be and what kind of ice cream would you get? Caeleb Dressel; mint chocolate chip ice cream
