I studied really hard and racked up a high GPA. I participated in a lot of extracurricular activities and took leadership positions in them. I wrote a killer essay.

If you want to get in, make yourself stand out as an individual on the resume. Get research work, it looks great. Have a high GPA. Have High Test Scores. Get leadership positions. Get good recommendations (I would recommend one from a research PI). And write a great essay, remember think unique but believable.

Strong, Strong Recommendation Letter. If you were not active in school then good luck. VOLUNTEER! You must volunteer!

Distinguish yourself. Hopkins has a low acceptance rate and just being smart and hard working often isn't enough. They are doing everything they can to get rid of the 'nerdy' reputation so they're trying to attract people with interesting life experiences and ambitions.
SAT: 1480 Male
