Johns Hopkins University

Baltimore, MDwww.jhu.edu
Johns Hopkins is renowned for being the first research university in the country, and its proximity to Washington, D.C., provides many opportunities for internships, jobs and just plain old networking. Academics are tough, and students will find few, if any, classes they can ace without hard work. The highly ranked medical and health programs are known to be especially rigorous. But that rigor seems to pay off: Recent graduates report above-average salaries. Students don't neglect their social lives, though, and there's plenty to do outside of class. Just look at the Spring Fair, an annual event that has attracted performers like J. Cole and is known for its funnel cake. Though the Baltimore school encourages values of diversity and inclusion on campus, some students report a tendency to self-segregate. In terms of athletics, JHU is known for its Division I men's and women's lacrosse teams -- but students can also play club badminton, cricket and even Quidditch.
