Hi - I applied to Hopkins for 2011 start. From my applications, Yale was the only one that had a fall start - all my other applications had summer starts. My acceptance for JHU this year was really weird - they had a ton of trouble communicating with students and so while we were supposed to be informed of our admittance status in early February (before Yale's acceptance notification), I didn't find out I was accepted until late March, much after my deposit for my other schools was required. My prediction is that next year they will have fixed whatever kink was in their admissions system. Still, most of the acceptances, regardless of start date, come in the month of February. Good luck!
