    it's hard to say anymore! originally i would've said the sat is too low, but then the ed results shocked the hell outta me, just apply, and see?!

    Yes indeed!
    I was very shocked by ED results.
    For some reason I was led to believe that Johns Hopkins was very selective but this year's ED, at least posted on CC, did not reflect that. Maybe because the fact that ED/EA applications are way up at IVY and other top schools this year may have had some effect this year.
    Interesting anyhow.

    Since alot of people use at as in 'ivy-saftey' maybe people like me who are actually interested in the school have a small boost. I think thats the only way i'll get in, no interviewer was available in my area :(
