  2018秋本科名校申请已全部放榜,您是否收到了无数封梦校的Waitlist (候补)?

  近年来,因录取竞争环境加剧,不少学校以发放候补的形式来控制学校的入读率(入读率越高对学校排名越有利)。面对Waitlist, 你知道从哪些方面入手才能创作打动招生官的情书吗?

  美中国际升学中心特邀常春藤外籍名校哥伦比亚大学外籍导师Rosie为您独家解密!

  1

  Genuine is key! Can’t say it’s your dream school, if you didn’t state it in your initial application. Best love letters share fresh stories that show resilience and passion in overcoming fears, hardships, and adversity for yourself or others.

  真诚至关重要!如果你没有在最初申请时说明这是你的梦校,那么就不要在love letter中不要这样表述。一封好的love letter需要给招生官展现自己克服恐惧、困难、帮助自身或他人走出逆境的韧性和激情。

  Go deep, what else you don’t know about YOU!

  Read or watch short videos AMERICAN icons Jim Rohn and Tony Robbins to build new vibe and motivation in writing this statement

  深入发掘自身特点——你的身上还有什么特质是自己暂未发现的!建议观看美国偶像吉米·罗恩和安东尼·罗宾的视频片段,帮助写love letter寻找新的思路和动机。

  Please focus on your new growth and understand your personal link to the selected school: We are all growing every day. This means think about the following: how and why does the school’s rejection makes you feel or realize about your potential? Why does it matter? Really, why does it matter? Ranking cannot be a factor.

  我们无时无刻不在成长,所以请关注你自身的成长与进步,并理解你与学校的联系。要写好一封love letter,你可以思考以下几点:你是如何通过学校的拒绝意识到自己还有进步空间的?为什么你觉得自己是有潜力的?又是为什么,你觉得这些事情很重要?这个时候,大学的排名将不再是你考虑的因素。

  Why should they care about this aspect of your waiting or waitlist will help you understand the evaluation process of a love letter? A love letter has to be memorable, genuine, and it requires deep analysis. Many love letters are written based on fears of rejection. Rejections are considered gifts. Because adversities bring gifts and talents you don’t have.

  思考招生官为何需要理解你在等待的原因和动机?这将有助于你去理解招生官对love letter的评估过程。要记住,一封好的love letter必须是令人难忘、真诚的、而且展示了你的深度分析和思考。我们知道,许多学生写love letter的动机源于担心被学校拒录。其实,你应该把学校的拒绝视作礼物,因为逆境能让你的天分和才能得到成长。

  Think about what is your gift in this waitlist? And why it’s a gift? Every adversity and setback has a meaning and it is shaping our destiny. What is your meaning in this entire process from applying and waiting? Why are you so highly energized now?

  想想学校的等待结果为你带来了哪些思考和成长?它对你而言为何是一个礼物?每一个逆境和挫折都有其意义,那么在申请和等待的整个过程中,对你而言,它们的意义又是什么呢?你为什么因此变得如此充满活力?

  And what is the lesson teaching about life? For example, maybe you come from a privileged background, and this opportunity helps you see how many valuable opportunities can’t be bought and confidence is earned through maturity and merits of your values and character.

  在此过程中,你学到了哪些生活的感悟?例如,也许你来自一个拥有很多特权的家庭,在被学校放入候补名单之后,你会明白很多宝贵机会是不能用金钱换来的。

  Have you developed a higher awareness and compassion for those who don’t have this opportunity? The person you are becoming having been beaten down. Why are you fighting for this chance?

  而你的自信是源于你的成熟,价值观和个人品格的。同时,你对没有同等机会的人有了更深入的认识和同情心。你曾经期望变成的那个人可能此刻受到了阻碍,想想你为什么要为最后的机会而战?请你思考。

  How does the school’s history, old history things that one would have to research to really understand the founding of the school and how its mission and evolution aligns with you as a young international student. What is so impressive about their mission that awakens your soul?

  学校的历史和传承下来的文化是我们必须研究的,因为只有这样,我们才能真正了解一所学校。作为一个年轻的国际学生,你要思考学校的使命和这些年的变化,并思考如何与自己联系起来。学校的使命中,有没有哪一部分令你印象深刻、精神一振的?

  Understand the school’s mission by researching it and reading over its community investments programs or corporate social responsibility efforts. Do not mention them in your essay, but borrow the inspiration from them to highly understand who they are and what type of students do they see themselves affiliating with.

  另外,建议通过研究学校周围社区的投资计划或企业社会责任工作来了解学校的使命。不要在你的文章中生硬提及这些,但要借这种方式和灵感来了解学校和理解他们认为的学生需要具有什么素质和使命。

  5

  How this school and this opportunity are an investment to your emotional and social maturity? Maturity isn’t necessarily about test score, contests or self-driven ambitions to work in your chosen field. It is about understanding that you have limits and with this school you can push beyond current yourself and you have to show in your love letter that the school is an investment for you in various ways.

  这所学校和这个候补录取的机会对培养你的个人情感和社会方面的成熟度有什么帮助?成熟不一定与分数、比赛或在你自己的职业抱负有任何联系。成熟可以是你对自己不足的理解,而在你选择的这所学校,你可以超越自己。因此你必须在你的love letter中显示,学校对你未来的全面成长和规划是一个重要的选择。

  6

  How can this school understand you beyond the information stated in your application? What can you share that is new, fresh and updated about your development, ethnicity, and background; whether it’s internal or external to help the schools see a new light in you and rule in your favor?

  除了申请材料中的信息以外,这所学校还可以怎样认识你和了解你?你还能更新和分享哪些关于你的成长、背景和个人特指的信息。这些都可以帮助学校看到全新的你并对你的转正机会有利。

  7

  How well do you understand you and be able to express why this school is an opportunity of a life time? This part can be evaluated by showing your global knowledge on certain subjects that are important to the school. For example, certain colleges in Columbia focus on human trafficking and invite global leaders.

  探讨为什么这所学校是会成为你影响一生的机会。你可以描写你对学校关心的一些主题的全球性思考。例如,哥伦比亚大学的一些学院会专注于贩卖人口研究,并邀请全球领导人一起探讨。

  So, I would use this idea to explain my curiosity to be in a school that fosters leadership thinking on complex conflicts of the world.

  所以,我会借这个研究来阐述我对这所学校的热情—我希望在一所研究世界复杂的矛盾与冲突、培养领导思维的学校学习。

  8

  How well do you understand your duty of contribution in using your education and advancement to help others? This in your letter could have the school learn something deeply about you that is not mentioned already in your essay. This is not necessarily an activity, but maybe an aspiration you have that you have not shared with anyone that you have cultivated over time and even questioned its relevance from time to time.

  思考你能如何利用自身的教育和进步来帮助他人。这些内容可以让你的学校深入了解在你的文书中并没有提到的东西。这不一定是一项活动,但也许是你有一个愿望,这个愿望是你长期拥有的,但你没有与任何人分享,会时不时思考和自己的关系。

  For example, do you have aspirations to make wild social contributions that defy current standards? And do you feel this school embodies and cultivates that spirit which is why you align with this school?

  例如,你是否有意愿冒险去挑战性地做一些大胆革新社会的贡献呢?你觉得这所学校是如何体现和培养这种精神的,因此与你有高度的匹配度?

  9

  Deeper meanings: Think deeply about why you are a right candidate of this school. Do you know about its global centers around the world? Do you know their ongoing projects and the leadership leading those projects?

  更深的含义:深入思考你为什么是这所学校合适的人选。你知道学校遍布在世界各地的全球中心吗?你知道他们正在进行的项目和领导这些项目的人吗?

  If you don’t, it is not too late to email someone and get an education to understand the impact. You would pursue this initiative to further show your initiative to understand this school to show you are also a global thinker.

  如果你不了解,那么给从现在开始去联系相关的人和了解还为时不晚。你需要展示你是有主动了解这所学校的,展示你也是一个积极主动并且有全球视野的学生。

  For example, both Columbia and Yale have global centers and have you made any initiative to learn about their projects and collaborations. Again, this is to gain self-knowledge, not to mention in your projects in your love letter but to gain a sense of new inspiration about who is the school, and how are you are linked to it emotionally.

  例如,哥伦比亚大学和耶鲁大学都有全球中心,你是否已经主动了解他们的项目和合作?注意,这是为了获得对学校的了解,不要在你的love letter中刻意提及。你的目的是要获得关于了解学校的灵感,以及你如何与学校联系在一起。
