    Despite what everyone says, Hopkins isn't the cut-throat competitive shark tank it's described to be. While homework and studying is stressful, most of the competition comes from your own standards for yourself. Students and most teachers are friendly, willing to help, and for the professors that aren't available, TA's will always be available.

    Honestly the most beautiful campus I've ever visited (and I've visited many!). The people there were no nice and helpful, and the level of academic rigor is clear. One of the most important things I noticed was the safety of the campus, very impressive!

    Although Johns Hopkins has a reputation for being an ultra-competitive institution, this does not mean the people there want to sabotage you grades in order to better their own. People are always willing to help you understand the subject matter better and to make your time at Hopkins a good time. Hopkins may be tough academically, but the students there still know how to have a fun time.

    Johns Hopkins University is an esteemed research university where students are pushed and challenged to achieve their potential and then surpass it. It's not a place where students come to have fun but a place where leaders, innovators, researchers, doctors, and engineers are made, broken, and re-forged. An education from Johns Hopkins University is one of the best that you can get from any college in the world.

    JHU is a school for very driven students. Everyone works incredibly hard at their studies, and many hold leadership positions in clubs as well as also pursuing research, internships, or jobs off-campus.
