How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? All aspiring doctors know of Hopkins as the best premed school in the country. Naturally, I gravitated towards it. When I went to visit, it really sealed the deal. Everyone was super kind and friendly. I can’t wait to be there next year!

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I’m so hyped to meet so many new people. There’s so much liberation and freedom in college that I can’t wait to experience. This is where I meet my life long best friends. Especially at Hopkins where the campus is in the urban center of Baltimore, I am excited to personally be right in the heart of so much culture.

If you could get ice cream with one person (real or imaginary; dead or alive), who would it be and what kind of ice cream would you get? not sure who, but I wouldn’t pass up any chance to get ice cream. Cookie dough is the best flavor, hands down no argument.
