Matt

前芝加哥大学招生官

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.”

Dana

前普林斯顿大学招生官

Dana: “As important as test scores are, grades are even more important. Test scores can reveal a student's potential. Grades reflect a student's level of discipline and the extent to which she uses her potential on a daily basis.”

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

前宾夕法尼亚大学招生官

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

前达特茅斯学院、西北大学招生官

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. ”

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

前约翰霍普金斯大学招生官

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.”

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

前布朗大学招生官

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.”
