美国本科申请—–个人写作的话题有哪些?  

 

美国本科申请的重要材料之一是个人写作。个人写作更像是我们高考的话题作文:即给你一个话题,你来写一篇文章,题目自拟、文体不限。

 

目前,美国大学要求申请者提交的个人写作包括两大类:一类是通用的个人陈述;一类是学校自定的补充写作。下面,我们来分别讲解一下这两类写作。

 

  • 个人陈述

个人陈述是关于申请者个人经历的、概括性比较强的话题。目前,大学通用的话题为以下五个:

  • Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
  • Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure.  How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
  • Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea.  What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
  • Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content.  What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
  • Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

 

  • 补充写作

不同于通用的个人陈述,补充写作有着强烈的院校烙印。每个学校自定义自己的补充写作。申请者在进行补充写作的创作时,一定要深入调查目标学校的详细信息,结合目标学校的特点来写。不要自作聪明的想着写一篇“通用文”来投递所有学校。学校通常对补充写作的问题设置的很具体,评审委员也能瞬间看穿你的“小诡计”。
