What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
What you hear is true. It's difficult, to say the least!
Student at Hopkins
It's a lot of work, but it will only pile up if you LET it pile up. Just like in high school, you're going to get homework and assignments, but they will be weeklong assignments. With that being said, there is a reason why they give you a week to do it. The worst thing you can do is ignore it until the night before, because chances are, it's a lot more than a night's worth of work. Keep that in mind. Also, take classes that will ease you into the school. Taking all upper-level classes probably won't be the best thing to do.
Marysol from Dundalk, MD
Hopkins is no doubt challenging, but the opportunities that hard work yields at this school are phenomenal. Hopkins is often mislabeled as cutthroat, mostly because students here are extremely self-motivated and hardworking, but it is very possible for any student to excel here with enough determination. Hopkins is also known for grade deflation, but classes are curved appropriately and graded fairly. Class sizes are generally quite small, which makes professors accessible and willing to meet with students one-on-one. Overall, be prepared to work hard while still enjoying your work.

Good grades may be tough for some people to achieve, but personally, I have not had any problems yet. All that is needed is good time-management skills and a good support team. Professors are very willing to help you learn the subject matter better and other students are always there to help. As long as you study hard, you can still do fine.
