How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I had always known about Hopkins through its reputation in medical topics. So, when I started my college search, I decided to tour the campus. When I toured, I found that the students were extremely friendly and welcoming, and I loved everything about Hopkins. I knew that Hopkins would be a good fit for me because of the flexible curriculum, vast research opportunities, and collaborative nature, so I ultimately decided to apply Early Decision.
