    My D17 is applying ED.
    There doesn't seem to be any directions on the art supplement and how to submit it. I don't see directions on their website. Any tip is appreciated.

    Why do you guys think there are so few Johns Hopkins ED applications (2068 applicants vs. 4,058 Northwestern, 4,090 Duke, 3,502 Brown)?

    Where do you get these numbers?

    @GrownFreshApples , if JHU has fewer ED applicants my guess would be that it draws mostly premed and STEM students, and in that respect its applicants are somewhat self-selected. Of their incoming 1200-1300 enrolled freshmen students last year, something like 900 were premed. Kids with an interest in Humanities will likely take their ED shot elsewhere.

    That is not to say that they *should* take their ED shot elsewhere. You can get an excellent education at JHU in a range of majors, but the school has definitely earned a (well-deserved) reputation in the sciences.

    Very simple answer: JHU doesn't spam marketing materials like many of other schools out there: https://www.wsj.com/articles/for-sale-sat-takers-names-colleges-buy-student-data-and-boost-exclusivity-11572976621

    If it wanted, it could easily juice application numbers. I'm glad it doesn't.

    JHU does not have the name recognition in certain areas as it does in premed, and some STEM. The school does attract a lot of the best students, so many of them use their early shot at the HPYSMC crowd.

    I have a question about JHU's test score policy. Does below mean a student should send and/or report both ACT and SAT to JHU if both are taken? TIA!
    Johns Hopkins will review self-reported or official SAT or ACT scores from applicants who attend U.S. high schools. These students will not be required to submit official score reports unless and until they are admitted and choose to enroll. You are able to self-report test scores through the Coalition for College application or Common Application. Please report scores from all tests you have taken exactly as you receive them, and admitted students will need to submit official testing from all tests taken in order to complete their enrollment. Students who will graduate from a high school outside the U.S. will be required to submit an official score report at the time of application.

    @whataboutcollege

    It is "either or". I would send both if they are both equally good and if not I would send the one that would put me at the highest percentile among test takers. What they mean by "Please report scores from all tests you have taken exactly as you receive them is that if you took SAT several times, report them accordingly but across SAT and ACT you need only to submit one. Hope that helps.

    Yes, it seems required admitted students will submit official testing from all tests taken in order to complete their enrollment.
