Essay: Your Voice(不少于250词不多于650词)

以下切入点任选一个:

1. Tell us about a person who has influenced you in a significant way.

2. “One of the great challenges of our time is that the disparities we face   today have more complex causes and point less straightforwardly to   solutions.”

Omar Wasow, assistant professor of politics, Princeton University and   co-founder of Blackplanet.com. This quote is taken from Professor Wasow’s   January 2014 speech at the Martin Luther King Day celebration at Princeton   University.

3. “Culture is what presents us with the kinds of valuable things that can   fill a life. And insofar as we can recognize the value in those things and make   them part of our lives, our lives are meaningful.”

Gideon Rosen, Stuart Professor of Philosophy and director of the Behrman   Undergraduate Society of Fellows, Princeton University.

4. Using a favorite quotation from an essay or book you have read in the last   three years as a starting point, tell us about an event or experience that   helped you define one of your values or changed how you approach the world.   Please write the quotation, title and author at the beginning of your essay.

Engineering Essay*

If you are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Engineering   degree, please write a 300-500 word essay describing why you are interested in   studying engineering, any experiences in or exposure to engineering you have had   and how you think the programs in engineering offered at Princeton suit your   particular interests. *This essay is required for students who indicate Bachelor   of Science in Engineering as a possible degree of study on their   application.

2.耶鲁大学的补充文书题目

补充文书题目:请用少于125字描述是什么让你(决定)申请耶鲁大学?请用35个字描述是什么启发了你?耶鲁大学的住宿学院会定期与有广泛经验和成就的客人进行密切的交谈。不论过去或现在,你会邀请谁发言?你会问什么问题?请在35个字以内描述你最喜欢学习什么?

耶鲁大学录取专家Yosepha Greenfield对此进行分析:

“Yale is all about community. The "college system" is an integral part of the   Yale experience and one that sets Yale apart from many of the other Ivy League   schools. Because of this, Yale is asking several questions about what   prospective applicants would add to the community.

So, in your answer, you need to address what role you would play in your   "college" and in the overall community. In my suite of 6 girls my freshman year   at Yale, we had students from all over the world — Russia, China, Brazil — and   girls with totally different interests — poetry, sports, cooking (one girl   cooked entire meals just with a portable stove top), and engineering. So when   Yale asks you these questions, you need to be detailed and creative, and you   need to show them that you would make an awesome addition to your residential   college. I'd also like to point out that Yale is adding two residential colleges   this year!”

“耶鲁大学关注的是群体。“大学的体系”是耶鲁大学经历中的不可分割的组成部分,这也是耶鲁大学与其他许多常春藤盟校的区分点。正因为如此,耶鲁大学也会问“申请者会给社区带来什么”这样的问题。

所以,在你的答案中,你需要强调你在你的大学和整个社会中会扮演什么角色。当耶鲁大学问你这些问题时,你需要做到具体和有创造性。而且你需要向他们表明你将成为你的住宿学院的重要一员。我还要指出的是耶鲁大学今年增加了两所住宿学院!

耶鲁大学前招生官指点迷津:

“招生官会认真地读你的每一个答案,包括只有35字的简答题。当然他们会更加注意你是如何回答“你申请耶鲁的原因是什么”这个问题。最符合招生官期待的答案一定是能够阐明耶鲁和其他学校的区别的。招生官不会被一个能够适用于任何美国大学的问题回答而打动。

对于申请工程或计算机科学专业的学生来说,选答文书非常重要。这不仅是你向招生官展示你对该专业领域的热情和兴趣的机会,同时你也需要利用选答文书阐明自己已经清晰理解成为一名工程师或者电脑科学家意味这什么、你对这个行业已经了解了什么。

3.芝加哥大学的补充文书题目

补充文书题目:芝加哥大学要求从话题里面选择写一篇“扩展”文书,以及两篇论文(一篇是要求的,一篇是选择性的)。

题目选项(部分):

Essay Option 3: Earth. Fire. Wind. Water. Heart! Captain Planet supposes that   the world is made up of these five elements. We’re familiar with the   previously-noted set and with actual elements like hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon,   but select and explain another small group of things (say, under five) that you   believe compose our world.

Essay Option 5: Fans of the movie Sharknado say that they enjoy it because   “it’s so bad, it’s good.” Certain automobile owners prefer classic cars because   they “have more character.” And recently, vinyl record sales have skyrocketed   because it is perceived that they have a warmer, fuller sound. Discuss something   that you love not in spite of but rather due to its quirks or imperfections.

文书选项3:地球,火,风,水,心!星球船长认为地球是由这五个元素构成的。我们所熟悉的构成地球的实际元素是氢和氧和碳,但请从以上这五个元素里面选择并解释它们为何构成了这个世界。

文书选项5:喜欢Sharknado的影迷说喜欢它的原因是因为   “它是如此糟糕,这就是为什么这个电影好。”一些车主喜欢经典汽车是因为它们更有特点。最近,黑胶唱片销售直线上升因为黑胶唱片有更饱满温和的音质。讨论你喜欢的一个东西,尽管它很离奇或者不完美。

芝加哥大学向以其古怪的、挑衅性的、烧脑的拓展文书问题而著称。今年芝加哥大学的拓展文书问题依然没有让人失望。文书说明也同样如此:“你可以用严肃的、想象的或介于两者之间的手法来回答。”

4.密歇根大学的补充文书题目

Essay #1 (适用所有申请者,250 words左右) Everyone belongs to many different communities   and/or groups defined by (among other things) shared geography, religion,   ethnicity, income, cuisine, interest, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage.   Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community   and your place within it.

Essay #2 (适用新生,最多500 words) Describe the unique qualities that attract you to   the specific undergraduate College or School (including preferred admission and   dual degree programs) to which you are applying at the University of Michigan.   How would that curriculum support your interests?

Essay #2 (适用转学生,最多500 words) Describe the unique qualities that attract you   to the specific undergraduate College or School to which you are applying at the   University of Michigan. How would that curriculum support your interests?

5.宾夕法尼亚大学的补充文书题目

How will you explore your intellectual and academic interests at the   University of Pennsylvania? Please answer this question given the specific   undergraduate school to which you are applying. (400-650 words) *For students   applying to the coordinated dual-degree programs, please answer this question in   regards to your single-degree school choice. Interest in coordinated dual-degree   programs will be addressed through those program-specific essays.

6.约翰霍普金斯大学的补充文书题目

Successful students at Johns Hopkins make the biggest impact by collaborating   with others, including peers, mentors, and professors. Talk about a time, in or   outside the classroom, when you worked with others and what you learned from the   experience. (Up to 400 words).

7.波士顿学院的补充文书题目

四选一 (400 word limit)

1. Human beings have a creative side that tends to shine most when we are   truly invested in the world around us. Describe a situation when you responded   effectively to a particular need and found yourself at your creative best.

2. Experience teaches us the importance of being reflective when making major   decisions. Share an example from a recent event when a leader or an average   person faced a difficult choice. What were the consequences of the decision?   Would you have done the same?

3. Boston College strives to provide an undergraduate learning experience   emphasizing the liberal arts, quality teaching, personal formation, and   engagement of critical issues. If you had the opportunity to create your own   college course, what enduring question or contemporary problem would you address   and why?

4. Jesuit education stresses the importance of the liberal arts and sciences,   character formation, commitment to the common good, and living a meaningful   life. How do you think your personal goals and academic interests will help you   grow both intellectually and personally during college?

8.乔治城大学的补充文书题目

乔治城大学要求的补充essay比较多,包括1篇Short Essay+2篇Brief Essays,题目分别如下:

Short Essay: Briefly discuss the significance to you of the school or summer   activity in which you have been most involved. (approximately one-half page)

Compose two brief essays (approximately one page single-spaced each) on the   topics given below.

Essay One:(所有申请者适用)

As Georgetown is a diverse community, the Admissions Committee would like to   know more about you in your own words. Please submit a brief essay, either   personal or creative, which you feel best describes you.

Essay Two:(申请不同学院指定题目不同)

申请Georgetown学院: Please relate your interest in studying at Georgetown   University to your goals. How do these thoughts relate to your chosen course of   study? (If you are applying to major in the FLL or in a Science, please   specifically address those interests.)

申请护理健康研究学院: Describe the factors that have influenced your interest in   studying health care at Georgetown University. Please specifically address your   intended major (Health Care Management & Policy, Human Science,   International Health, or Nursing).

申请外交服务学院: Briefly discuss a current global issue, indicating why you consider   it important and what you suggest should be done to deal with it.

申请商学院: The McDonough School of Business is a national and global leader in   providing graduates with essential ethical, analytical, financial and global   perspectives. Please discuss your motivations for studying business at   Georgetown.
