Congratulations on your acceptance to the Johns Hopkins University Class of 2017! Each and every one of you should feel a great sense of accomplishment and honor for receiving a spot in this distinguished class. You should know that by offering you a place at Johns Hopkins the Admissions staff are saying loud and clear they think you fit in our community. As current students, we know you will make a difference at Johns Hopkins and that you will be provided with the challenge and excitement you’re looking for.
However, we know that you all probably have a wonderful array of options to consider over the next few weeks. The decision of what school to select and call your home for the next four years and your alma mater for the rest of your life is not an easy one to make. There are many factors to weigh, many opinions to think about, and the all-important “gut feeling” to consider. Though we already know that each of you will be a great fit here in Baltimore, it’s time for you all to make you own determination about Why Hopkins.
The students behind the Hopkins Interactive site are the ones responsible for bringing you this blog. The site is dedicated to you, the admitted student, and its sole purpose is to help you answer the question of why Johns Hopkins is the right fit for you. Every day throughout the month of April, a new entry will be posted. We will share with you advice on how to make this all-important decision, the best ways to learn more about Johns Hopkins, and the amazing opportunities and advantages of being an undergraduate here.
Make sure to check back daily because a new entry is revealed each day, and bookmark this page for easy access. We think you will find each entry enjoyable and informational, and we hope they will help you make the decision to enroll at Johns Hopkins. Great things are expected of the JHU Class of 2017 and you should be part of it.
