it is a lower GPA, yes, but the value of it being from Johns Hopkins makes it better in a way. Johns Hopkins is known for not inflating grades which in turn makes a 3.0 look better than a 3.0 from another school which isn't known for the same practices as JHU. the rigor and dedication which a B from Hopkins would require is quite high.
The lower GPA puts the students at JHU at a disadvantage if they decide to apply for graduate schools or professional schools.
Conclusion: JHU professors need to raise their grades.
Maybe AdmissionsDaniel should advocate this in JHU on behalf of the students.
Our Career Center has documeted the success of our graduates and the reports are absolutely comparable with schools that have higher average GPAs and what some might say better reputations.
If you don't think Hopkins will help you get anywhere, then don't go.
