Student 2: JH.
Student: I hear that all you do there is work 24/7. Have fun at that fag school!
Student 2: Where are you going?
Student 2: Really. Good luck with that.
Baltimore is a city that has a bad rep, but it is actually a decent place. Rent is cheap, there are lots of bars and clubs to go to, and Towson Town Center is an awesome mall. Just be sure to protect yourself by locking your doors 24/7 and not going into bad areas late at night.
JHU students are very diverse in background. Most of them are slightly nerdy but pretty cool. Everyone here makes good friends, and many make lifelong friends here.
Most people want to go to med school, but you can do pretty much anything you want if you spend your 4 years here wisely.
Last but not least, JHU is a very difficult school. Everyone here works very hard and sacrifices, to some extent, an easier life to come here. But hey, it’s all worth it in the long run right? :)
