How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I discovered Hopkins through various means. I sing with the Peabody Children’s Choir and I am currently interning at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. I decided to apply Early Decision because of the proximity to home, the potential research opportunities, and the small student body compared to larger state schools.
