How competitive is Johns Hopkins?

<p>Hi all,</p>

<p>I was wondering if I can get some opinions about the difficulty of a BA biology major (or relative fields) at Johns Hopkins. Is it really like a cutthroat environment where everyone competes and 'dies' for an 'A'? What in your opinion, do you think Johns Hopkin's atmosphere is like?</p>

<p>Generally, is biology (pre med) one of the harder majors/concentrations at Johns Hopkins? Since most people enter for Pre-Med? How doable is a 3.7+?</p>

<p>How competitive is it within the classroom? In your opinion, what do you think of the course breadth and difficulty in the classroom?</p>

<p>Thanks, but I have already read that before. The reason I decided to post this was to get opinions for the specific "Biology" major (AB/BS) and not engineering. Although the post had an overview of the school, I was hoping for more specific opinions in Biology or related fields (Biochem/Chem).</p>

<p>No more at Hopkins than anywhere else. People care about their future and want to do well but not at the expense of others.</p>
