When a school makes a mistake with a student's application, the guidance counselor should make the correction. Mistakes happen and that is why we accept updates and error corrections to a student's application after the deadline has passed. Your child should speak with his/her guidance counselors and request that a new transcript along with a cover letter that explains the mistakes be sent to the Office of Admissions. This information along with any missing reference letter can be faxed by the counselor to our office - 410-516-6025.

Kate: Thank you for sharing this blog entry with all. I know it was from the heart and you provide wonderful advice for people to THINK. My heart goes out to you and your family for the loss that you all recently suffered. I loss my grandfather in the middle of my sophomore year and then my grandmother in my senior year. Both events impacted me greatly, and though at the times I was gripped with sadness, I grew as a person in retrospect. Loss of a close family member is quite difficult to deal with during the moment, but with loss you can gain a lot too.
Jen: Glad you found this old blog entry helpful. I often refer to it when students want to know how the application review process works. The only major change four years later is that we read online now and not via paper files. If you want to know who the first reader of your application will be you can check out our Admissions staff page: The first read is done by your regional admissions counselor.
Becca: I am so sorry to hear this news. I hope your Dad is doing better and then spending the holidays with your family is helpfing everyone. Best wishes to you and your family for the new year.
This is a great outlook for 2010 ... and for your 21st year. I am going to enjoy watching the journey.

We'll miss you around here next semester ... BIG TIME!
Bravo Dominique. I congratulate first for your three As, but also learning to cope with a bad grade too. It is not easy, but the advice you provide others is invaluable.

That video is hysterical. You three need to take your show on the road. Maybe petition to be on So You Think You Can Dance. Your collective moves are mesmerizing. Good luck with finals.

No decisions are every released online. Johns Hopkins does not have an online system for checking application status or decisions. All of our admissions decisions are released by postal mail and e-mail. In the past BME decisions have only been released by postal mail. We are still discussing if that will be the case this year as well. Check back later next week for a new Hopkins Insider blog entry about the release of ED notifications, and we will have an update on how BME decisions will be released.
Jessica: Thank you for your comment. I am glad you enjoy reading the Hopkins Insider. A new ED update will be coming soon.

Rebecca, I am a huge fan of lists so I loved your blog entry. I actually make a list to organize the various "to do" lists I maintain each day ... it is an illness. I was definitely AdmissionsHappy with your blog, especially since you referenced the New Student Portal To Do List -- which my colleagues and I spent A LOT of time on this past year.
Just to echo the previous comments ... wonderful job with this blog post. We are all excited to welcome you to Homewood.
Charlie ... what a great tale. Make sure you save that list your grandmother made for you ... it will always bring back great memories. Enjoy your orientation week.
Miranda, I loved this blog entry. A few days ago I was speaking with a group of prospective JHU applicants and I shared your story about your students wishing you the best on your "sleepover." A truly classic story ... thanks for sharing it.
Miriam, this blog entry made me smile the whole time. Great job. The random stranger remarks are my favorite, and is there any way I can hire your grandmother to be my publicist. Enjoy the start of your JHU experience.
Great job with this blog Tyler. You are right you don't have to grow up just yet -- but remember the next four years will fly by so cherish every single moment. Cheers!
Alexandra: What a wonderful blog entry and a great perspective to start your freshman year with. I will make sure to DARE YOU. Best wishes for a smooth move-in.

Though your internship this summer was not perfect, it does seem like you have learned a lot about yourself, your beliefs, and your future aspirations. The Baltimore City education system is in a sorry state, but at least there are some people out there trying to improve it gradually.
I knew from the brief description of your internship that it sounded cool ... but I never imagined how cool it actually is. What an amazing experience ... I am glad that it was so much more than you might have initially expected.
I am just tired from reading about all your travels. Sounds like an amazing time. And I agree with Kate -- a Saznin Travel Channel show would be something I would watch.
Love the list ... and the different categories you chose to break your suggestions down into. I agree with all of your ideas.

Great to hear your internship is going so well. NIH is an amazing place, and love your opening about how you enjoy being part of something big. Enjoy the last weeks of your summer.
So glad that the internship has gone so well ... you definitely seem to have been bitten by the law bug. Also happy to hear the hand is doing better. Can't wait to welcome you back to Baltimore in mid-August ... there's lots to do.
Great advice ... both for graduating seniors and enterting freshmen. Oh yeah, and also for professionals too ... I can definitely apply your advice to my quest for the perfect job. (Have I already found it?)

I love the Rio picture ... and your list is so extensive. It sounds like this was a truly amazing experience. Enjoy your last few days and safe travels back to the States.
