The Johns Hopkins Class of 2019 Is Smarter Than You

Share the News


It’s almost the first day of school, which means the incoming freshman at Johns Hopkins are probably out buying dry erase boards and twin extra-long sheets for their dorm rooms. This was another record-setting admissions year for Hopkins, which has made developing its undergraduate program a cornerstone of its strategy in recent years. Nearly 25,000 people applied, 3,065 were admitted, and 1,310 will be enrolling this fall. They’re an impressive bunch:

  • Their mean high school GPA was 3.90
  • Their average SAT scores were 1420-1530
  • Ninety-two percent were in the top ten percent of their graduating class

They’re also already wildly accomplished — one incoming freshman patented a heart valve device; another raised $250,000 to build wells in Niger; another co-authored a middle school science textbook. Remember: these are teenagers.

It’s an impressive group — we’re glad to have them in Baltimore!
