How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I discovered Hopkins when I began to look at the best universities for medicine in the world. I really discovered the spirit of the students and the wonderful environment of Hopkins that fostered creativity, collaboration, and curiosity when one of my teaching fellows at Mongolian Young Scholars Program was a current Hopkins student. Working with and learning from them, I knew that Hopkins was the right fit for me and that I would have the best experience here.
