    The school is nice, but the city's old and tainted. If you've seen The Wire, it's not much different. You have to be strong and independent, otherwise, the city will swallow you whole. If you're not from the East Coast, go somewhere else. If you're looking to party, go somewhere else. If you're looking to sacrifice your social life for a few years to make something of yourself, come to Baltimore. This city will roughen you up quick.

    The campus is GORGEOUS. Everyone is super-nice and welcoming. Don't let the fact that it's in a city scare you--the campus has a very suburbian feel and a state-of-the-art security system.

    Hopkins is in a great area - there's an art museum right by the main campus and Peabody is near downtown. There's shuttle service between all of the campuses so it makes navigating the downtown area pretty easy as well.

    I absolutely love it! Sure a lot of my time is focused on studying for classes and I don't get out on the weekdays like some of my friends from high school, but I make up for it with all the fun I have on the weekends!
