How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I received an email about a Hopkins presentation that was being hosted in my area. I was not very familiar with the school going in, but knew of its strong reputation for academics and success. After the presentation, I found it very difficult to imagine myself going anywhere else for school.
What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I cannot wait to explore all my interests at Hopkins through intramurals, clubs, and music groups! I am currently involved in student government, newspaper, concert and jazz band, choir, running, German club, broadcasting, and campus ministry. I will absolutely continue to pursue these passions of mine, but I am equally as excited to explore new interests! I would like to expand my horizons by trying out research in my areas of study, joining clubs I never even knew existed, and engaging with the city of Baltimore in any way I can.
Complete this sentence: “I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for ________________.” My school. I attend Benet Academy, a Catholic private school in Lisle with about 330 kids per class. The class of 2019 at Benet contains some of the kindest, smartest, most supportive, and most wonderful people I have ever met. I am surrounded by peers who lift each other up, and we are led by teachers who genuinely wish for our success in all arenas. The day I got into Hopkins, I was met by an overwhelming display of pride and love that I will never forget. The amount of love we have for each other truly is the only reason we can succeed in the classroom and beyond.
