Jhu Supplement Essay 2013 Honda

The SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT is required for all first-year applicants. The redesigned SAT will be available to students applying for entry in fall 2017 and after. (Please note: The writing section of the ACT is optional and the essay section of the redesigned SAT will be optional once it’s administered.)

Submitting Your Scores

Johns Hopkins will review applications of students who attend U.S. high schools using either self-reported or official SAT or ACT scores. These students will not be required to submit official score reports unless and until they are admitted and choose to enroll. You are able to self-report test scores through the Coalition Application, Common Application, or Universal Application. Please report your scores exactly as you receive them. Students who will graduate from a high school outside the U.S. will be required to submit an official score report at the time of application.

SAT Score Choice Policy

We’ll consider your highest section scores across all SATs taken—even if they were on different test dates—in our evaluation of your application. We therefore encourage you to update your application with new test scores each time you take the SATs.

For 2017 applicants, Johns Hopkins will accept both the new SAT and the old SAT. We will consider the single highest score from your test dates. If you took both assessments, we will use concordance tables provided by the College Board to compare scores.

We also consider your highest combined score for the ACT. We’ll find the maximum value of each official section score submitted, then recalculate the composite score.

Optional Sections

The writing section of the ACT is optional. The essay section of the redesigned SAT will be optional once it’s administered.

Applicants may also choose to submit SAT Subject Tests in one or more areas of interest as a way to demonstrate an academic strength. We will consider the two highest Subject Test scores when reviewing applications, but your application will not be negatively affected if you choose not to submit Subject Test scores.

We encourage applicants interested in an engineering major to submit scores from the Mathematics Level 2 SAT Subject Test and at least one science SAT Subject Test as a way to demonstrate their strengths in relevant subject areas.

Transfer Applicants

Transfer applicants are not required to submit SAT Reasoning Test, ACT scores, or SAT Subject Tests. For more information about applying to Hopkins as a transfer student, click here.

English Proficiency

TOEFL or IELTS are recommended for applicants whose primary language is not English or students who have not attended an English language school for the last three years.

Though not required, applicants who score below 690 on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) section of the new SAT or below 30 or more on both the ACT Reading and English sections are encouraged to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores, as it will often present them in the best light for their language preparation.

The preferred sub-scores for the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) are 26 (Reading), 26 (Listening), 22 (Writing), and 25 (Speaking). A score of 7.0 or higher on each band is expected on IELTS.

A Note on Standardized Test Dates

Although we cannot guarantee that November (ED) or January (RD) scores will arrive before the Admissions Committee evaluation, past experience suggests that scores taken on these dates usually arrive in time.

We strongly recommend that Early Decision candidates complete their required standardized tests no later than October of their senior year. Regular Decision candidates should complete required tests no later than December of their senior year.

November (ED) or January (RD) scores will be accepted for those students unable to meet their test requirements by October (ED) or December (RD). In such cases, we encourage you to note your intention of taking the later standardized test(s) on your application. There is no need to rush your scores.
