I want to apply ED to hopkins, and I know it's about 50 percent, but of course this only creates a false sense of security.

gpa=3.946 (weighted, bad, but my junior year gpa was 4.25, freshman year weighs it down)

school does not rank (its a good thing it doesnt, because my school ranked 5th in new jersey last year)

sat=710v, 690m (taking it again, consistently getting 1500 on practice tests)

sat2=760 writing, 680 biology, 690 math2c (taking math2c again, but I'd be an english major anyway)

national honors society
latin honors society (junior classical league)
music honors society
Varsity Baseball, starting pitcher (made the league leaders for strikeouts once, not a big deal)
Student Advisory Board Class Officer
Politics Club 4 yrs.(some minor offices held, but none of the 4 major ones)
Literary Magazine writer (unfortunately it broke up my junior year)

nhs inductee, lhs inductee
"Magna Cum Laudi" award on National Latin Exam twice
"Honors With Distinction" junior year
should at least get commended scholar on psats

National Student Leadership Conference
(where I got an award as "outstanding student leader" not a very big deal)
worked for a securities firm on wall street (menial tasks)
took course at American University on global public health
senior and junior american legions baseball

junior year classes:
ap history 2
ap latin vergil
ap biology
honors physics
honors english 3

senior year classes
ap chemistry
ap government
ap calculus ab
ap english
ap latin catullus

so, anyone assess my chances at hopkins ED as an english/bio major?

I think you have a really really good chance at JHU ED. Apply!
