It's easier than people say it is.BrightPublic Health
It's easier than people say it is. Still tough but social life is acutally quite lit over here and if you want to have a good time, this is the place. The thing is, here you can do whatever you want because peer pressure is less. It's practically an ivy thats better than upenn, brown, and dartmouth. Still, it's great for people who want a college experience but not a super crazy one (drunk for an entire week). it's for people who want to have great futures, especially in medicine.

Question
Johns Hopkins is really what you make ofQuite BrightMechanical Engineering
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.

Question
Hopkins is a meritocracyQuite BrightOther
Hopkins is a meritocracy - less of the "old boys network" and "blue bloods" than at other top-tier universities (you know who you are!). Very smart, hard-working students here. But not all grinds.
