How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I discovered Hopkins when my best friend asked me to go to an information session with her during our sophomore year of high school. I decided to apply Early Decision because that information session sparked an interest for me, leading me to tour Hopkins with my mom during my junior year.
