Boyd-Buchanan School senior, Allie McCoskey received a call from Johns Hopkins University notifying her that she had been accepted on early decision for the freshman class of 2013. Johns Hopkins University is ranked 13th in the 2013 edition of Best Colleges and National Universities. Early Decision applicant decisions were released on December 15, 2012. Regular decision applicants will not be released until April 1, 2013. Johns Hopkins only accepts 19% of its total applicants each year.
Allie has attended Boyd-Buchanan School since Pre-K.
She has played tennis, soccer, and is an avid equestrian. Allie has competed with her horse, The Final Problem, for the past 2 years. Allie has volunteered on weekends with her mother, a tax professor at UTC, at the Brainerd Recreation Center’s low-income tax clinic. Allie says she chose Johns Hopkins because it has excellent programs, a beautiful campus, and lies within a very nice city. Allie plans to study Ancient Egyptian History and Archaeology. She wants to study abroad during her time at Johns Hopkins. She would like to become an archaeologist or a museum curator.
Allie credits Boyd-Buchanan School with her success in receiving early acceptance to Johns Hopkins. “The teachers here are outstanding. This wouldn’t have happened without them,” said Allie. Allie has thoroughly enjoyed her 13 years at BBS, but this well-rounded senior is excited about her future that will begin this fall at Johns Hopkins.
