Johns Hopkins Thread

Did anyone hear back from JHU? They just emailed me. And I got rejected. That evens out to 2 rejections, 2 acceptances, and 1 waitlist. My life sucks more than I thought it would.

    Got waitlisted. I'm greatful. Bit disappointed, of course.

    I've dreamed of going to hopkins ever since I put my foot into US (3 years)
    I did interview, visited campus many times, attended open houses, and made numerous calls and sent emails to the office with questions.

    It took me a month to write a Hopkins Essay ($10 one), and put every drop of effort into Hopkins Application (used commonapp so that I can send more essays :))

    I'm not giving up. I will do everything I can do to get my spot there. I don't care if I get no money and crappy housing. I'm sending my card back as soon as I get my actual letter, with all the suppliments I can find with extra recommendation. If it doesn't work, I'm transferring next yr after working my butt off at other school for a yr. I'll get 4.0 if I can get into Hopkins.

    I am surprised tho.. that Hopkins DOES look beyond numbers. I probably have lower SAT/ACT/SATII/GPA than anyone else who applied to Hopkins in CC yet they didn't reject me like other schools did. They saw potential in me.. and I'm so greatful and thrilled.. :)

    The process has been frustrating.. and it will be for another couple of months (for me). But I am so darn glad that I had an opportunity to compete with best of the best, and I have no doubt in my mind every single one of us will end up in a place that we will thrive!!!

    HAHA I AM going to get Johns Hopkins University in my college diploma!!!!

    :P I'm just rambling here, aren't I
