Johns Hopkins has the highest acceptance rates to bothMay 13 2005Unknown
Johns Hopkins has the highest acceptance rates to both medical and law schools in the United States. If you want to be here, and know it, apply early. Unlike some schools that follow the numbers, Hopkins seems to look for more. their admissions decions reflect this. Just make sure you show them who YOU are in your application (and essay).
SAT: 1510 Male
I was just accepted Regular Decision to Hopkins, andApr 01 2005Unknown
I was just accepted Regular Decision to Hopkins, and I think it was because I (unknowingly) played the game well. Everyone thinks of Hopkins as the 'science' school...and I believe that it is trying to draw in more verbally oriented people. On top of a 770 verbal SAT and a 780 writing, I won accolades on the debate team, and worked hard on my personal statement. I think the ultimate thing that may have gotten me in, though, was my interview: my interviewer was more into the verbal side of Hopkins, and so I expressed my desire to follow her path. What I now realize about college admissions is that it's like looking for a hole in the marketplace: find out what the college NEEDS more of, and market yourself to show them that you can provide it. Good Luck! And by the way, disregard that comment from the student who says 'if you have to ask you probably can't get in.' Not only is that conceited, it's wrong.

Hopkins has lots of engineering majors and people who are good at math. So I recommend a strong verbal skills to help set yourself apart.
SAT: 1490 Male
I am not sure how I got in butDec 31 2004History/Histories (art history/etc.)
I am not sure how I got in but I would recommend students come with an open mind. Enjoy the first semester as it is pass/fail. Do not be afraid to explore Baltimore-it is not as dangerous as some student seem to think.
SAT: 1350 Female
