Hopkins Cuts Admissions Budget

Officials will take fewer and shorter recruitment trips.


Much like its counterparts at MIT and Harvard, Johns Hopkins University's admissions office is cutting its budget and reducing the number of its cross-country recruiting trips and printed and mailed publications, reports the News-Letter, Hopkins's student newspaper.

Because of 5 percent cuts, trips to the West Coast will be reduced to two a year, and employees will be required to take a salary freeze. The admissions dean insists that the same regions will be visited as before, just not for as long and not as frequently.
