交换生,一般现在都是一年公立交换后,转入私立,算是美高系列了。在申请中,相对国内高中处于有利位置。

而夏校,更多的是丰富经历。

1、  Question: Will AOs read or watch the information on Naviance whichis linked to a student's Commonapp account?
问:招生官会阅读或是查看Naviance上的信息并与Commonapp上的信息进行对照吗?

The short answer is that they will not readNaviance, they will only look at the common app. Naviance is a system forstudents and college counselors to use, but the admissions officers only careabout the information that is transported to the application itself.
简短的回答是他们不会看Naviance, 他们只会看common app. Naviance是供学生和大学指导老师使用,招生官只关注申请中提供的信息


2、  Question: Hi, normally, the applying materials, GPA, SAT&Toefl,essays and activities, will be viewed in what order?
问:通常情况下申请材料:GPA,SAT,托福,文书和活动被评估的次序是什么?

It totally depends on the individualadmissions officer. I know some people that start with the personal statement,then activities, then scores and grades. I know others that look at gradesfirst, or SAT first, etc. I would say it is more common to look at scores and gradesfirst, so the AOs know how seriously to consider the rest of the application.However, there is no standard for this.
这完全取决于招生官个人。我知道有招生官先看个人陈述,然后活动,然后分数和成绩。我知道也有人先看成绩或是SAT等等。我想说通常会先看成绩和分数,这样招生官知道他需要多认真地考虑此申请人的其他申请材料,但是这没有一个标准。


3、  Question: If my scores are too much higher than that of the schoolrequires, is there a great possiblily that it will turn me down?
问:如果分数远高于学校的要求,是不是很有可能被拒?

This is an interesting question. Sometimes,schools will turn you down because they know you are likely to get into a betteror more selective school, and they don't want to admit students who will notattend. However, that is very rare for top-50 schools, and for undergraduateschools. We see that a lot more often at the graduate level.
这是一个有趣的问题。有时学校会拒绝你因为他们知道你也许会去更好或是更难进的学校,而且他们不想录取完全不会报到的学生。但是,这对于前50的学校学校申请本科比较少见,我们看到的更多的是研究生阶段的申请。


4、  Question: Does the experience of attending summer school withcredits in a prestigious college replace AP scores to some extent?
问:参加有学分的知名大学夏校可以在某种程度上代替AP成绩吗?

Not really. AP tests measure two things.The first is your ability to succeed in advanced courses (your actual academictalents), and the second is your willingness to challenge yourself with adifficult course load. If you could have taken APs but chose not to, that isnot a good thing, and taking summer courses will not replace that experience.However, if you were not able to take APs, the summer courses may be a goodsubstitute.
并不,AP考试考核2件事情:第一是你在高级课程中学习成功的能力也就是你的实际学术才能,第二是你对高难度课程自我挑战的意愿。如果你有机会参加AP课程,但选择不参加,那不是一个好事,参加夏校不能代替这个。但是,如果你没有机会参加AP,夏校会是一个比较好的替代。


5、  Question: How do AOs value emails that include questions or"love letters" sent to the office by applicants?
问:招生官如何看待申请者发邮件给招生办公室提问题或是写”求爱信“?

Generally, they hate them, and youshouldn't send them. If you have good questions that you truly cannot getanswered elsewhere, then sending them can indicate that you are a seriousapplicant. However, sending them multiple emails with a list of questions willjust frustrate the admissions officers. In addition, "love letters"are generally pretty worthless and make applicants seem desperate and immature.I strongly recommend you not send them. It is clear to me that a while back,some chinese companies recommended that students write these love letters. Itwill hurt your chances. Don't do it unless you are writing with the directsupervision of a former admissions officer - and even then, probably shouldavoid it.
一般来说,他们讨厌这些,你不应该发这些。如果你有好问题而且你确认其他地方找不到答案,那么可以发邮件显示你是认真对待这个申请的。但是,多次发邮件问一系列的问题只会让招生官很困惑。而且,求爱信通常都是无价值的并且会让申请者看起来很绝望和不成熟。我强烈建议你不要这么做。我知道前段时间有些中国公司建议学生写求爱信,这个可能会伤害到你的机会,除非你是在在前招生官的直接指导下,即使是这样我也觉得尽量避免。


6、  Question: How do AOs view students that take AP classes with goodgrades but never take any real AP tests?
问:招生官如何看待那些AP课程中取得了好的成绩但从未参加AP考试的学生?

They would not view this favorably, unlessthere is a good excuse for not taking the tests. This would seem like thestudent is trying to avoid doing poorly, or is too nervous to take tests (whichis not a good thing when you're applying to college, where there will be manytests). I would use the "additional information" section of theapplication to explain this, if you have a good excuse.
可能会有负面影响,除非有一个没有参加考试的合理理由。这个会让招生官觉得学生是因为学得不好,或是害怕考试(这对申请大学不是好事,因为大学有很多的考试)。如果你有一个好的理由的话,我会建议利用”additional information”的部分解释一下申请者为什么没有参加考试的理由。


7、  Question: Does time matter a lot in application? say, what's thedifference between completing my application on Oct.20 and Oct.30?
问:申请的时间有关系吗?比如在10月20日和10月30日完成申请这有区别吗?

There are two kinds of admissionsdeadlines: rolling and specific deadline. Rolling admissions (UMich used to berolling) means they are admitting students continuously throughout a timeperiod, rather than evaluating all applications that come in on a specificdeadline. Thus, for rolling admissions, applying early matters a great deal. Forspecific deadline admissions, there is no benefit other than giving yourselfmore time to prepare.
有两种招生截止日:滚动或具体日期。滚动招生(密西根曾经是滚动招生)意味着学校在一定期间内持续地录取学生,而不是等到某个截止点后一起评估。这样,对于滚动招生,早申请会有很大的不同。对于特定截止日的录取,早提交并没有什么好处还不如多给自己一点时间准备。


8Question: Will AOsee how many EA colleges I applied for? What if I applied for three or fourpublic universities which have close ranks? Does that influence the outcome?
问:招生官会知道我申请了多少EA学校吗?如果我申请了三到四所排名比较相近的公立大学,会影响录取结果吗?
In a few rare cases, schools will ask whichother colleges you've applied for. This is very unusual, though, and in almostall cases the AO will not know where else you've applied.
很少情况下学校会向其他学校打听你申请了哪些学校,这个比较少见,但是,大多数情况下招生官不会知道你还申请了哪些学校。


9Question: I wonderwill the AOs first choose applicants within a school? Like if there are manystudents in a school applying to a same college, will it be more difficult forone than when there is only one? Thank you very much!
问:我想知道招生官是否先从某一学校中选择申请者?比如如果一个学校有很多的学生同时申请一个大学会比一个学校只有一位学生申请这所大学难度大些吗?
Very interesting question. I think what youare asking is whether it makes it harder to get into a college if many peoplefrom your high school are applying. The short answer is "yes". Thefirst consideration the admissions office will have is whether they have toomany or not enough students from a particular region (for example, they maywant more students from Texas or California). If they have already filled theirquota from those regions, then you will almost certainly be rejected. Afterthat, they will consider whether they have accepted enough or too many studentsfrom your specific high school.
很有趣的问题。我想你问的是如果你所在的高中有很多人同时申请一所大学那么你的录取难度是否变大?简单地回答:是!招生官的第一考虑是从一个特定区域来的学生是否太多或是不足(例如,他们可能希望更多来自德州或加州的学生)如果他们在这个区域的配额已经满了,那么你被拒绝的可能性变大。然后他们会考虑是否已经从你所在的高中录取和足够或是太多的学生。
To give you an example of this, the year Iapplied to college, there were 4 athletes who were recruited to Yale from myhigh school. Yale had more than filled its quota (generally, my high schoolsent 1-2 students per year), and as a result, every other applicant - includingmyself and a handful of the top students in our class - was rejected. Weweren't even waitlisted. All of us had GPAs higher than 3.95 and SAT scoresabove 2350. It had nothing to do with us, though, it was because Yale filledits quota from my state or my school.
举个例子:我申请大学的那一年,我所在高中有四个运动员被耶鲁大学录取。耶鲁已经超额完成配额(一般来说,我的高中每年有1-2个),结果是即使其他的申请人包括我自己和我们班另外一个优等生被拒了。我们甚至都不在waitlist中。我们的GPA都在3.95以上SAT2350以上。被拒跟我们自身无关,但是是因为耶鲁在我们州或是我们学校的名额用完了。


10QUESTION: Question:If the university/college websites say that students may choose to take alumniinterviews or Initialview, will the interviews be helpful to the application?Or if students do not register for such interviews, are there some other negativeinfluences?
问:如果大学官网说学生可以选择校友面试或是面试,那么面试是否对申请有帮助?或是如果学生不报名参加这些面试对申请是否不利?
It will be harmful not to register. Theywill assume you are hiding something. You should absolutely register for aninterview.
不报名会有害处。他们会认为你想隐藏什么。你完全应该报名参加面试。
