布朗/杜克/JHU等多所名校文书补充题目新鲜出炉 !快来认领你的梦校题目!

今年申请美国名校的学生,文书将成为决胜关键。

小林为何会这么说?要知道在很长一段时间里,SAT/ACT都是美国大学本科入学考核评判最重要的标准之一。

然而,近年来,随着学校对学生综合素养的重视,“Test Optional”的方式已经被越来越广泛地接受。再加上疫情影响,众多学校不约而同地做出了取消标化成绩的决定。

每所学校,都在试图向我们传达同样的中心思想个人的整体表现与综合能力,才是最根本的评判依据。

那么,如何向学校展现你的综合能力?

答案很明确:文书。

  文书与补充文书  

众所周知申请美国大学时,除了要提交通常一篇个人陈述文章(Personal Statement 简称PS)即Common Application系统里面的主文书外,美国各大高校通常还会有自己的补充文书题目,比如芝加哥大学、达特茅斯、圣母大学、密歇根大学、波士顿学院等等。

那么补充文书与主文书又存在着哪些的不同呢?

◾字数要求:补充文书要求字数偏少,一般在150-250字之间,最多不超过500字。

主题要求:与主文书确定的6个题目相比较,补充文书更加多元化,形式更加丰富,提问的范围更加大。

结合院校:补充文书的题目很多是需要申请者提供申请该校的原因、自己为什么选择此专业、做过什么相关活动或实习等等题目,需将自己和申请院校的特点有机的结合在一起来写。

补充文书要求的字数比主文书要少很多,其实越是简短,越考验申请者的思维能力和写作能力。而且越是排名靠前的常春藤学校,补充文书数量越多,甚至还有些学校,喜欢出偏题、怪题,无厘头让人抓狂。

 30余所美国名校补充题目新鲜出炉  

要知道一轮申请季下来,许多同学都会被文书写作折磨得不成样子,有的大学会要求申请人提供 2-3 篇补充文书,一轮申请季可能要写至少 20 篇文书,这个工作量让许多同学头都变大了。

 什么样的补充文书最能吸引招生官? 

补充文书类,其实是分为好几类的,常见的有Why Eassy、Interests related questions等等

1

#1:Why Eassy

这类是补充文书中最为常见的一种,从“Why”这个词中我们就能大概猜出这类文书大致要写什么。基本就是“为什么申请这所学校?”“为什么选择这个专业?”……而这类补充文书,招生官主要是想要了解学生是否真正喜欢这所学校,是否与学校的风格契合等。

“Why”类补充文书书写技巧,分为【文书书写四步骤】和【灵魂四大关键词】。准备书写四步骤为:

  • 了解自己:通过头脑风暴或自我反思在一定程度上了解了自己,知道自己的性格特点以及优势;

  • 了解学校:通过各种渠道去了解这个学校的特色,找出这个学校吸引你的地方;

  • 找到自己和学校间的联系:要学会透过表面看事情本质,通过学校的特点与自身相结合,证明自己与学校契合

  • 开始写作:用一篇具体有力度的文书告诉招生官,我爱这里,我适合这里。

而在书写的过程中,同学们要掌握灵魂四大关键词:真诚、热情、匹配、双赢。从而写出一篇富有灵魂的补充文书,从而抓住招生官的心。

#2:Interests related questions

通过这类补充文书,学校可以从侧面了解到申请者是否与学校具有契合度,是否真的可以在这里得到他们希望得到的东西,学校是否可以帮助学生完成梦想……

无论是书写哪一类补充文书,有以下几条tips,大家在写文书的时候需要注意:

1.任何写作都要有亮点和主线,并且要和自身相关;

2.千万别忘了写出自己喜爱学校,选择这里的理由;

3.尽量不要提及大学的地位及排名情况;

4.最好别提及大学的创始人或人文历史之类话题;

5.诚信为本,没有的尽量不要瞎编。
