What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Located in the heart of Baltimore, MD, Johns Hopkins is one of the top research universities in the world. Be prepared to work hard and play harder. The key to success at this school is knowing how to apply yourself to the maximum while still allowing time for fun outside the classroom. Get involved--join an acappella group, volunteer with local charity organizations throughout Charm City, or apply for a research job or internship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the highest ranked hospital in the US. No matter what you decide to do with your time here, a Hopkins education will yield tremendous career opportunities in the future, regardless of your major.

1. Don't limit yourself when it comes to choosing classes. Use your freshman year to take courses in diverse subjects; not only will this help you explore other career options, but doing so will help you fulfill Hopkins' distribution requirements.

2. Don't take advantage of the fact that grades are covered first semester. Instead, use this time to determine what study methods work for you. In this way, you will have them down-packed by second semester, when grades really do count.

3. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy; explore extracurriculars and schedule downtime so you're not completely bogged down by your work. Hopkins has tons of clubs and pubs (publications) that let you have fun and meet new people. Be sure to visit the Student Activities Fairs to explore your options.

4. Be safe. Although Hopkins has excellent security, Baltimore can be a dangerous place, so you have to act responsibly. Participate in the Security Walk at the beginning of the year to learn how to stay safe.

Learn how to time manage and allot time to having fun as well as studying. Be open and try to get to know as many people as you can, including professors.

I worked full-time as an undergraduate student, but due to the course load I've cut back to working about 30 hrs a week. Like other reviewers, a student needs to find a good balance between work and school. One needs to have a clear schedule set aside for school work. It definitely helps to be organized and know what you can and cannot handle in your schedule.
Samantha from Leavenworth, KS
Have a balance and don't blow off your studies, but makes sure to make time for socializing and friends. It will be difficult but if you stay on top of your work then there should be few problems. Join groups on campus, they help you meet others and to get involved in the surrounding community as well as on campus, there is something for everyone. Have fun, there is lots to do. Don't worry about competition, it is competitive but not to the point of sabotage and there are plenty of places to get help if you need it, so if you need help don't hesitate, get it, and your peers are also willing to help you do your best, although competitive, others are always there to encourage you as well.
Alyssa from Grand Blanc, MI
1. Balance! The workload can be overwhelming at times, but don't let that stop you from staying social. Take advantage of the events on and off campus- there are shows, performances, dinners, and other activities. Just be smart about where and how you have fun. Use your common sense, stay in groups, and don’t make rash decisions.

2. Get involved early- figure out what the school has to offer and find things you are interested in. Just beware not to overload- you have four years to try things out.

3. Don't skip classes (or sleep through them). There are many professors here who are extremely enthusiastic about what they teach and a lot of material is covered in lecture. Some professors post their lectures online, but in class, they often go beyond what’s on the slides. Cramming the night before a test might work for some tests in some classes, but in general, because there is so much material covered, it would behoove you to pay attention in class and study over time.

4. Don't take covered grades first semester as an excuse to slack off, but don't stress too much either. Use that time to test out different study habits and find out what works and doesn't work so that when second semester rolls around, you will have a better grasp on how to succeed.

5. USE YOUR RESOURCES. They are there for your use! The teachers, TAs, and staff are available for questions as well as suggestions. If you need or want anything, use a resource to help you find it or get it done.
Caroline from Newton, MA
Make sure you have a well-balanced application. Additionally, you want to sure true interest in the school. Schools can tell if you would really like to go there or not and they will accept students accordingly.
Be yourself. It's so diverse here, you will find people you mesh with!
Student at Hopkins
Get active in campus activities fast. Join a club, find a service project that interests you, join a lab. Try to make yourself known to your professors, it can be hard in the larger classes, but it is important.
Don't lock yourself in the library 24-7. it is easy to do, but usually only results in incredibly high stress levels
Alison from Berwyn, IL
Apply Early Decision! This shows commitment and a great want to attend their school. Just remember you are legally bonded to the school, if they accept you (and provide you with enough financial aid). You should also visit the school. Get the feel for the classes (attend a few lectures!) and sit down and talk to students. Walk into the Brody Learning Commons and just ask a few people how they like it there.
