This is a school for two types of people: |
1)rich kids who weren't smart enough to get anywhere better and
2) nerds who have no personality/social skills and just study all the time.
There is no student life. Everyone just studies.
Safety on campus is abysmal. Students get robbed/killed and the administrations doesn't care.
There is no school spirit. The "athletes" are anything but that and the bleachers during games are just as empty as they are when there are no games.
Career prospects are non-existent. The top people from here end up in minimum-wage jobs. The rest don't get jobs.In short, don't go here if you want to have fun in college, learn something in college, and/or get a job after college.

| Johns Hopkins is really what you make of it, and it certainly isn't for everyone. If you are looking for a school where you can get an easy 4.0 and go to graduate or medical school, this is not the place. |
If you want a school where you can do incredible research as early as your freshman year and continue that for grad school, this is a good place.
I personally intend on going into industry and my average GPA (3.3) has landed me several internships with Fortune 500 companies already (I'm going to be making almost $15,000 this summer alone). Doing well here requires a lot of work, but if you manage your time well then you can also have a great social life. I go out to bars and parties on average 4 nights a week, and still get pretty good grades.
Some professors are great, and some do not really enjoy teaching. Since there is no core curriculum, just make sure that you schedule your classes with only professors you know who are good.
