Reasons to attend and to not attend Johns Hopkins University

To Attend

  • “The [brand name] of Johns Hopkins.”
  • “Because it’s not a party school you get more of a relaxed social environment. You get to know everybody here if you choose to join.”
  • “If you’re a competitive person and thrive off of competition, this is a fantastic school to go to.”
  • “The Peabody music school is nearby, and those are invaluable resources if you want them.”
  • “If you’re really, really interested in research and want access to research as an undergraduate.”
  • “If you have broad interests and want space to do everything, there is a lot of space to do that because there is no core curriculum. There’s a lot of space to do double majors or double minors. I think that’s one of the best things about the Hopkins curriculum.”

To Not Attend

  • “It’s a really old campus. There are not a lot of new features or amenities on campus.”
  • “If you’re going to be pre-med because the grade deflation will hurt your GPA.”
  • “They force you off of campus your third year, so if you don’t think you will be able to live off campus after your third year, then don’t come.”
  • “If you have to work a job to come here, good luck because it’s really hard.”
  • “If you like to go out and have a wild time, don’t come here. It’s just not going to work out.”
