Nicolay Shinkin: Magnificent Chinese Numbers

Can you calculate in Chinese? Do you know how to manipulate numerals in Chinese? Can you count to 10? To 100? To 1 000? To 1 000 000 in Chinese?

“The Chinese Numerals for Businessmen” by Polina Shinkina can help you with counting the Chinese numbers even if you haven't studied them earlier!

A great number of the exercises in the textbook will be also helpful for studying the basic mathematical operations in Chinese: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

admiralrewd: Confession board

I thought you guys might want to know that Hopkins now has its own anonymous confession board, similar to the ones at a few other schools if you are familiar with them.

Check it out at:

Anyone know if it's possible to SSH into the Hopkins network? I really miss using PINE.

irised: chemistry major?

Hey everybody! Right now, I am a junior in highschool, but I'm starting to try to piece together my college applications. Hopkins is the number one on my list, and I'm planning on taking the pre-med courses and eventually pursuing a medical career. I really enjoy chemistry, so I was thinking about it being my major. My questions are: 

Are any of you guys Chem majors? and if so, what's your oppinion on the Hopkins chemistry program?
Is it a really competive major to apply for?
Also, do you think it would be better to take the pre-med courses but major in something like English?

Thanks in advance for any help! =)

shephi: transport import

Hi all, I'm a visiting student at JHU extremely new to the area. I come from Boston where public transportation generally involves the subway. Here it seems a bit more murky how to get around, so I'll ask.
  1. Best way to get from the Homewood campus to Camden Station (I'm taking the train to DC for the 4th)
  2. Best way to get from JHU to downtown Baltimore.
  3. Suggestions to get to know the area? I live near the One World Cafe and really dig it. Other than that I haven't gotten much of a chance to explore.

year_two: tranpsportation from/to airport

I'll be visiting Johns Hopkins on Tuesday (possible transfer) and I'm a bit confused with how the public transportation works. Can anyone tell me how I might get from the airport (BWI) to the undergrad campus (and back) and how long it would take? I'm from Chicago so not completely incompetent but the El is so much less intimidating than these maps I've been looking at. Thanks :)

isis77: Inquires of a Hopeful Transfer

Hello all,
I was a freshman at the University of Michigan this past year and I applied to JHU as a transfer in March. I won't be hearing back until the end of this month-beginning of June, but I was hoping that someone could let me in on any info they may have about transfers. My GPA on the transcripts I sent in with my app was 3.8 (first semester) and my final GPA for the year is 3.6. I want to major in Near Eastern Studies with a concentration on Egyptology and as far as I have seen from the website, JHU is a leading establishment in that area. Any info anyone can provide will be extremely appreciated; especially if anyone knows about the housing status of transferring Sophomores. Looking at past entries from other hopeful JHU kids, I have a general idea about the campus atmosphere and it seems a lot like UMich, so I'm not too worried about challenging course loads ("no pain-no gain" right?), I'd just like to know if it seems I stand a chance. Again, thanks in advance!

I got accepted! (yay!)

leikomgg: (no subject)

Well, hello JHU. My name is JT, and I have a few questions.

Avoiding the usual "I'm considering..." speech, I'll get straight to the point. Is anyone here involved in a Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering course? I'd like to know first hand from students what it covers, what the class structure is like, etc. You know, more than just what the website has to offer. I've done CTY with Johns Hopkins, so I'm framiliar with high-level learning. I guess I'm just interested in knowing what's available after high school and what it's like there.

If there are any forevermores who now go to JHU, I'd like to know how the college atmosphere differs from that of CTY.

Thanks in advance for anyone who helps out. I appriciate it.
