How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I discovered Hopkins through its reputation as a renowned medical school. Hopkins was always regarded with high esteem and when it came time to start my college search I considered Hopkins. Like before I heard nothing but praise for Hopkins, so when it came to apply I was ready to apply. Hopkins is my first choice so signing the ED agreement didn’t even faze me.
What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? My advice will be the same advice I give to my friends, to find a school that is going to provide you with what you need to be successful. Look for research opportunities, internships, and real hands on experience. Those are the tools that are needed for when you join the workforce.
Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? Leave No Doubt This is a quote that my crew hangs in our gym. It has a simple meaning, but is nonetheless inspiring. For the crew team’s context it means never leaving any doubt that the workout you just did was your best that it was 100% percent of your effort. It has thought me that if I am ever going to do something that I have leave no doubt behind that I am giving it my all, that I am truly commit to what I am doing.
