今年的申请季已落下帷幕,但准备申请2018fall的小伙伴可要注意啦,美本申请又出新幺蛾子——大多数小伙伴在申请美本时常用的Common Application系统又双叒叕更新essay题目了!

比起之前的题目,现在由5道加到了7道,并且对之前的题目有微调。总地来看,这次改新题对同学们其实是一个利好消息。CommonApp扩大了写作范围,降低了对写作内容的限制,让大家能有更广阔的发挥空间。

具体变化如下:


1.无变化

Some students have a background, identity, interest or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. 你有什么背景、特质、兴趣或者天赋对你非常重要,如果你没有在申请中体现他们,那你的申请将是不完整的。如果你有这样的故事,请与我们分享。

2.略有修改

新题2:The lessons we take from obstacles we encountercan be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?我们从遇到的困境/阻碍获得的经验教训是我们之后成功的基础。回忆你曾经面对过的一次挑战、一场阻碍、一种失败,它是如何影响你的?你又从中学到了什么?

原题2: The lessons we take from failure can be fundamental to later success. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?

这道题进行了小小的修改。原题是"failure",而现在改为了obstacle,扩大了可写的范围。

3.略有修改

新题3: Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?回忆你曾经质疑或者挑战一个信仰或想法的时刻,什么影响了你的思维?你又获得了什么?

原题3: Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?

在题目中加入了questioned,补充了challenged的范围。同时,最后的问句有调整,强调了结果。

4.无变化

Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma-anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
描述一个你曾经解决过的问题或者你想要解决的问题。可以是智力挑战,研究查询,道德困境——不论限制,任何对你个人来说非常重要的都行。解释它对你的意义,为了解决它你采取了哪几步,或者你觉得可以采取方法可以得到解决方案。

5.略有修改

新题5: Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realizationthat sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others. 讨论某一次成就,事件或者领悟,它标志着你的一段个人成长和关于你自己或者他人的一次新理解。

原题5: Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

比起原来的“从孩子变成大人”,现在改成了一个更通俗的成长,并且强调了思考的过程。

6.[新]

Describe a topic, idea or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more? 描述一个话题,观点或者理念,你发现它很有趣以致于让你忘了时间。为什么它能吸引你?当年想要再深入了解的时候,你寻求什么或者谁帮忙?

该题目为新增题目,符合当先大学招生人性化的需求,重点就是各种想发现你的热情在哪里!

7.[新]

Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you’ve already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design. 分享一个你自选的话题。可以是你之前已经写过的,一个对不同问题的回应,或者是你自创的问题。

该题目为新增题目,开放式命题,脑洞大的同学可以试试。

总体来说,新的文书题目改变算得上“换汤不换药”,大家还是提早规划早做准备!
