Well roundedness is keyMay 04 2008English
well roundedness is key. High scores/gpa, of course, but participation in athletics, leadership roles (class pres, captain of team) make you stand out
SAT: 1550 Female
Pay particular attention to your essay(s)Nov 21 2007Computer Science
Pay particular attention to your essay(s). Do not talk about your numbers! Address issues that one cannot simply see by looking at your transcript! Also, Hopkins, like other top schools, doesn't want to hear how smart you are- they already know from your transript-talk about something else.
SAT: 2180 Male

Hopkin's acceptance rate is actually quite highJul 16 2007Other
Hopkin's acceptance rate is actually quite high. From the perspective of any top 30 undergraduate university, most top applicants basically all look identical. Get your 3.9 high school GPA, a 2300 MCAT, with a slew of extracurriculars and volunteering experiences.

An interesting strategy is to simply apply to a little known major (Applied Mathematics?) and just switch into the major you want. Switching majors is a very quick process that can be done in 5 minutes, and the only major you cannot switch into is Biomedical Engineering.
