How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I chose to apply early decision because Hopkins has such an amazing amount of research and innovation happening there. As someone who wants to go into medicine, I wanted to go to a school with enough opportunities for me to explore all the fields of science while also being challenged academically.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I can’t wait to get involved in some the different research projects happening at Hopkins!

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Do not spend too much time overthinking and do not let what others say influence your decision. When you make your choice, it should feel right to you, and if it does, you have made the right choice

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? Coming from a rather small school, I want to meet as many new and different people as I can in college

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) Hopefully done with Medical School and in the middle of my residency
