How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply ED? Past friend recommendation and college visit in 2019; both attracted me to JHU and let me make up my mind that this is the place to be.
If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) An engineering session focusing specifically on creating tools to improve sleeping quality of boarding high school students.
What do you hope to get involved in on campus? LGBTQ+ activism, designing clubs, or publications.
What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Location of a college actually matters! Getting used to a completely different climate is harder than you think.
What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? (big or small!) Writing a paper discussing improving gravitational waves detection at the two LIGO locations here in the U.S. while barely knowing anything about astrophysics.
