Hello everyone: In a month and half since I've been at Hopkins, I have made exceptionally bright and distinctively different friends from central TX, north CA, New Jersey and countless other places. The common thread is that we are all looking for a challenge that leads to an exciting future and life. At Hopkins we felt we found that place that leads us to that end. The classes are tremendously challenging led by brilliant professors and researchers from all over the world. The necessary study time is unbelievably demanding and yet the Insomniac Cookies and thirst for knowledge keeps us awake. I hope to see some of you here with me!
