Application Essay Workshop

As you learn about our collaborative culture and hands-on learning, we also want you to learn how to showcase your personal qualities and attributes that will make you a strong match for our community. Through an interactive session with a focus on the Hopkins supplemental essay, students will gain insights into how admissions officers think about and evaluate the supplemental essay. The day will include two activities: one where we break down the essay question from the perspective of a fictional character, and a second where we examine how to effectively pair extracurricular activities with the supplemental essay.
