How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I’ve wanted to be a doctor for a long time, and when I learned about Hopkins a few years ago, I instantly knew I wanted to be a Blue Jay. I applied Early Decision because I couldn’t picture myself at any other school.
What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? Last year, I was chosen to present research that I had spent a year working on at several science competitions. At one of my most recent competitions, I was recognized as one of the top eleven science researchers in Indiana.
What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I’m most excited to live in a big city on the East Coast for four years and to get to experience life in Baltimore with new friends from Hopkins.
What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I want to get involved in several community service and research opportunities. I’m also excited to attend as many sporting events as possible.
Complete this sentence: “I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for ________________.” The support of my parents and siblings.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) I see myself running my own private practice as a successful eye surgeon with a loving husband, a few kids, and two huskies.
