How bad is the are around Johns Hopkins? I heard its really bad, would I ever be able to leave campus? If the area is bad, is the campus big, and whats there to do on campus?, I don't want to be stuck on a 150 acre area for 4 years.....
If you could chance me for Johns Hopkins that'd be great too...........I want to major in Economics and do Pre-Med, I want to look at policies in the healthcare field, and try to make it more efficient. Would doing pre-med hurt my chances?
