Where did you hear that IB information? I have never heard of a school publishing a different admit rate by curriculum... In fact I would think a school like JHU would expect students at IB schools to be full IB... =/
@MLS36332 is clearly trolling. For one, to my knowledge JHU has never released admit rates based on curriculum...ever. In fact, the closest I've seen is that about 2 hours before the ED email was sent this year they posted some stats about the ED admits; however, it was only things like the male/female ratio, what states were represented, and intended course of study. In addition, @MLS36332 has 7 posts total. 7. I'm very sure he's here just to stir the pot.
I suggest you ignore him, get it out of your head and just try and wait it out until tomorrow at 7.
Not getting grumpy. I'm just saying, if Hopkins was really your first choice then ED was the answer, not getting rejected/waitlisted and then having Hopkins as your first choice since its now your last resort. But that's just my two cents.
(Though, I understand some people want other choices as well, but it just irks me when Hopkins becomes a first choice for those that thought of it as a last resort)
Some people can have JH as a first choice in the RD round or 2-3 schools as their first choice (tied) until they visit. That's ok. ED isn't for everyone. That said, no school at this should be a default.
I just think ED in general is a bad idea. We are all very young (some of us even younger and we change our minds about things, ... we should all take the time to consider all our options ... and this takes time. A year ago Cornell was my number 1, ... I don't even know why anymore. I visited and got a bad vibe, ... never even applied.
@jennifermatsui: I said the exact same thing. we find out tomorrow and I won't open it until thursday at 7 along with my upenn decision ''/. i gotta find someone who will check it for me or else it'll sit there lol; soooo nervous!!!
@An0nmity: no... JHU is definitely my first choice. I was actually vacillating between Penn and JHU, but now JHU is number one with no doubt. I couldn't apply to JHU in ED cuz of my income status.. I need financial aid and it's not wise to apply as an early decision applicant...
So you are wrong in a sense that people should've applied ED if JHU was their first choice. Some of us just cant...
Edit: nvm i just read your post. yeah. exactly. some people can't ED. LOL
