Why I chose Johns Hopkins: I chose Hopkins for two main reasons: the first was because of the availability of double majoring and second because I loved the idea of intersession and thought that it would be a great way to "expand my horizons."
The biggest difference between high school and Johns Hopkins that I've experienced: So many people! My high school class consisted of 65 people, many of whom I'd been going to school with since elementary school. Needless to say, by the end of senior year, I not only knew everyone's name but I knew how many siblings they had, what town they came from, and what kind of car they drive. Hopkins is hardly a "large" school, but "large" is a relative term, and the class of 2014 here still is 18.4 times larger than my high school class. It's a bit weird not knowing everyone's name.
My favorite character from a movie/book/television series: Bill Murray from Space Jam. Anyone who tells Michael Jordan that they refuse to play defense while playing on a team with him must have something going for them.
Favorite place on the Homewood campus: I believe that Charmar is actually a small cloud in Heaven. If you haven't gotten a Charmar southwest chicken sandwich, you should turn off your computer and get one.
Favorite Johns Hopkins memory: On the night the news reported the death of Osama Bin Laden, a group of friends and I traveled down to Washington, D.C. to attend the impromptu rally going on outside the White House. It took us only 45 minutes after the hearing of the news to get to the rally.
What I want to do with my major: I'm not entirely sure, but I'd like to do something big in the technology industry. I think it would be so cool to be directly involved in bringing the next big product to market or to play a role in groundbreaking technological advancements.
