Hopkins has a beautiful cohesive campus and great facilities. Freshman housing is standard, no frills. The FFC dining hall food is actually decent catering to a wide variety of diets. The library is very nice with study environments for different occasions including dead silent reading rooms, cubicles, and group study rooms that can be reserved ahead of time. Because it is always poppin' even on weekends, this can become problematic especially during finals week as students struggle to find a nice quiet study space. Students here are smart quirky, and down to earth. Many many premeds. Although social scene isn't great, nightlife is there for those who seek it. The work is challenging but the atmosphere here is not "cut throat" contrary to popular belief. Overall I have enjoyed my experiences here making meaningful friendships with students who are talented, driven, and genuinely passionate about what they are studying.

Johns Hopkins' reputation precedes it, but the student experience leaves much to be desired. As a senior, I've found that my time at Hopkins has been unnecessarily stressful, which has caused me to frequently forego basic human needs in the way of social interaction, nutrition, and mental health just so that I can keep up with my coursework. Of course, it would be easy to rationalize these sacrifices in retrospect if the reward were tremendous as well. I've found the opposite to be true. The career center and advising are extremely unimpressive. If you're a student here, it feels like being cast out to sea with no life preserver. I wish I could say something better about my soon-to-be alma mater, but this just isn't the case. I now feel bereft of my passion, curiosity, and energy. Hopefully things will improve with time.
It's not as hardcore as one would expect. There are a lot of resources to utilize, many student organizations, active greek life, and the neighborhood has many stores, restaurants, etc. Great school!
