1) Describe a time in your personal or professional life when you experienced a setback or failure. How did you react during the situation and what did you learn from the experience? 2) Discuss a turning point in your life — an accomplishment, event, or other critical moment – that helped you understand yourself or the world around you in new ways. 3) At Johns Hopkins University, we have the common goal of improving the lives of others. Johns Hopkins graduates work to improve society in different ways, from taking on the world’s biggest challenges to transforming their local communities. Describe one way in which you have already contributed to one of your communities (family, school, neighborhood, work place) beyond the expected.
