美国研究生留学生

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.”

    学术成绩

    ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

    美国大学通常会要求申请学生提供9-12年

    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。

    Jamie: “Extracurricular activities are so important because they show admissions officers who you are and what you can do, in ways that your grades and scores cannot. When choosing activities, think about what you're passionate about and what you would want to engage in regularly for more than one year. And if you can develop leadership within some activities, even better!”

    文书

    ESSAYS

    文书是研究生申请中最重要的衡量标准 之一。在申请过程中,招生官通过文书 来了解学生的学术背景、能力、性格、 对未来的规划等等。

    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. ”

    推荐信

    LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION

    大多数的学校要求申请人提供三封推荐 信,可以是来自任课的教授、辅导员、 论文导师、指导学生做科研的导师、系 主任、学院院长,实习中的上司等。

    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.”

教授想看到的个人陈述究竟是什么样的?

在硕士申请过程中,除了一些硬性条件的审核,例如GPA,托福,GRE,或者GMAT等。我们的软条件也起着至关重要的角色,而尤为重要的就是我们日常所说的文书。硕博申请文书该突出哪些要点?

    面试

    INTERVIEW

    不是所有的专业提供面试机会,但是对于提供面试的学校而言, 申请者的面试表现在最后的录取决定中起至关重要的作用。 面试的目的是帮助招生官核对申请人材料的准确性,同时进一步了解申请材料中没有的内容 面试对于知名院校和项目的申请来说是成败的重要因素。 面试过程中,学生应该自信,积极地去和面试官交流,而且要着装得体,与面试官有眼神的交流。 建议面试结束后给面试官发一封感谢邮件。

    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.”
