Oh, So THAT’S Why Johns Hopkins Students Always Seem So Intense

There’s intelligence, there’s good test scores, and then there’s something a little more hard to measure. Call it ambition, call it dedication, or call it drive — whatever it is, it turns out that Johns Hopkins students have it.

According to ViewsOnYou, a new London-based start-up, Johns Hopkins has the world’s 6th most-driven students. (See the rest of the list below.)

ViewsOnYou is something like a matchmaking site for employers and employees. It gathers data on members (or entire institutions, in the case of Johns Hopkins) by analyzing Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, along with self-reviews and peer reviews. The goal is to get “culture fit” — aka compatibility — between employer and employee.

So far, the ViewsOnYou team has come up with some fairly predictable insights (“Apple employees are more creative than Microsoft employees” — um, could’ve told you that myself), but their list of the world’s most driven schools is pretty interesting — not one Ivy League-r on the list!
