People get accepted into Hopkins because of their intelligence, not because of their attractiveness. That isn’t to say that there aren’t attractive people at Hopkins. The biggest difference is that students at Hopkins pay less attention to their appearance than students at other schools. There’s no one type of person that dominates Hopkins: There are preppy people, jocks, and foreign students. Girls like the near 1-to-1 ratio of guys to girls, and it isn’t hard to meet people of the opposite sex since almost all dorms are coed. In the AMRs, there is a decent number of hookups, but many of them aren’t too serious. By sophomore year, there are less hookups and more relationships, which tend to be based on common interests, not looks. Even so, many students go through Hopkins without having a boyfriend or girlfriend. If you are upset by the selections at Johns Hopkins, you can easily travel to several other area colleges to meet more people.
On the whole, Hopkins is a pretty average campus when it comes to looks. There aren’t many, if any, models running around, and there’s a running joke on campus about the pick-up line for attractive people being, “You must go to Towson/Loyola.” The population is diverse, so there’s no traditional look. Most of the students are pretty down-to-earth and studious. Even if you don’t end up dating anyone, you will, at the very least, make friends with members of the opposite sex.
