美国高中留学生

U.S. UNDERGRADAUTE PREPARATION

01

标准化考试

STANDARDIZED TESTS

TOEFL \ IELTS \ SAT \ ACT等

根据统一规范的标准

测试学生的学术水平。

Matt: “The ACT and the SAT re graded differently. On the SAT, you lose a quarter of a point for every question you get wrong. On the ACT, there’s no penalty for incorrect guesses. That means that on the ACT, if you don’t know an answer, you should always guess. The worse that can happen is that you aren’t penalized. On the SAT, though, guessing a lot can get you into trouble. If you have no idea on the answer, you’ve got a 75 percent chance of losing a quarter of a point, and those can add up fast. If you can’t eliminate one or two of the answers, it’s probably not going to benefit you to guess.”
美国综合大学与文理学院该怎么选?
选择美国大学时,一种是综合性大学,另一种是文理学院。一般学生会申请10所左右的学校,全部申请排名前30的学校是不合理的。而且要根据自身特点和长远规划,做到科学选校。

    学术成绩

    ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

    美国大学通常会要求申请学生提供9-12年

    年级(国内初三到高三)的成绩单

    即在校成绩单,是体现学生学术能力的直观材料,也是重要申请材料之一。美国中学申请一般需要最近三年成绩单,均分80分以上。Top前50虽没有明确GPA,但建议申请的学生每科成绩都在B(80-90分)
    03

    课外活动

    EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

    课外活动是招生官了解

    学生品质的重要方面。

    相比较华而不实的简历,美国学校更看重的,是真正热爱一件事情并且愿意投入的人。

    文书

    ESSAYS

    文书是申请者展示“我是谁”的

    机会。简言之,就是一场不用

    见面的“面试”

    Landis: “Think of the essay as your chance to speak on your own behalf. Keep in mind that you are telling the counselor your story, do not list all your achievements. ”
    05

    推荐信

    LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION

    对于申请人在申请材料中所呈现

    出来的各种品质加以证实。

    Melissa: “"Choose recommenders that know you well and can speak at length about you as a student and why you would be a good fit for the program you are interested in pursuing. A very vague recommendation can be viewed as a red flag.”

背景提升,对名校竟如此重要!

为什么越来越多的优秀学生会被美国知名高中无情地拒绝?除了标化考试成绩,学生的课外活动起着举足轻重的作用。如果将“课外活动”局限于校内,那将难以脱颖而出。

    面试

    INTERVIEW

    一些学校面试是必须的,

    有些学校则可以不用通过面试直接录取。

    Adrianne: “When talking to an interviewer, make sure to include examples that demonstrate your statement; if you say you are very interested in an activity, talk about what you do to be involved, or how you share it with others.”
