What are the Gropius bathrooms like? Are showers and everything communal? Are there curtains?
One single-sex bathroom per floor, each with a separate area with four curtained shower stalls off to the side. Basically the same as the dorm bathrooms we had in college, but be sure to pick a floor with the right bathroom - I know more than a few people who have to go up and down stairs and through locked doors every morning to take a shower.
thanks for your responses. Are any of you familiar with Hopkins' biomedical engineering program? I recall in high school that a few of my classmates applied to their program and weren't accepted - I wonder what would have happened had they put electrical engineering or mechanical engineering down as their proposed majors (I guess this analogy is probably better than what I used before) Hopefully the both of you are right, because I'm going to just be truthful anyway and put down that I'm interested in international law.
Keep in mind that a lot of (probably most) 0Ls think they want to do international law and go work for the UN or whatever, just like a lot think they want to do environmental law for Greenpeace or civil rights law for the ACLU. The admissions committee knows that your interests are going to change as you learn more about what practicing in each area is actually like, and I don't see them putting that much stock into which boxes you check before you're admitted. Like dash said, there aren't majors or programs in the undergrad sense.
The new set of international law classes that just got added to the 1L curriculum this year should be a good primer if you're interested in the subject, though.
