“The financial aid opportunity that Hopkins gave me was much better than any of the state schools that I applied to. The financial assistance there wasn’t going to back me up as much as Hopkins is doing right now. That really pushed [my decision to enroll], but I think, overall, Hopkins is an amazing place to do something important.”
