感動審核員的申請論文

現在是高中11年級的學生即將在今年年底遞交大學申請表. 你得趕快想一想這些申請論文題目, 要怎麼發揮才能幫你的申請成功加分? 申請表上的論文跟作文比賽的概念不同, 最後如果不能讓審核員對你說YES, 寫得再好都沒用, 因為審核就是主觀的決定過程, 所以掌握審核員的心態跟口味真的很重要.

以下是私立大學共同申請表(Common Application) 的七個申請論文題目:

1. 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.

有些學生有一個非常有意義的背景,身份,興趣或才能,他們相信如果缺了這部分,他們的申請就是不完整的。如果你也是如此,請分享你的故事。(這個題目蠻多學生會選擇)

2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can 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?

我們會從生命中遇到的障礙吸取教訓, 這對於以後的成功至關重要。想想你所遇到的挑戰,挫折或失敗。這些事是如何影響你,你從這些經驗中學到了什麼?

3. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?

回想當你質疑或挑戰一些信念或想法的時候。是什麼策動你的想法?最後結果是什麼?

4. 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.

描述你曾解決問題或你想解決某問題的經驗。這可能是一個學術挑戰,一個研究疑問或一個道德兩難狀況 – 任何對你個人重要的事情,無論事情大小。請解釋這個事件的重要性以及說明你採取了哪些步驟來確定解決方案。

5. Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.

討論你的一項成就,事件或認知啟發了你的個人成長和造成對自己或他人新的認可。(這個題目是最多學生選的)

6. 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?

描述一個吸引你的話題,想法或概念,研究這些事會讓你投注許多時間。這些事為什麼如此吸引你?當你想挖掘更多相關信息時,你會去哪裡或向誰去找尋更多資料?

7. 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.

您可以自選任何主題的文章。它可以是你已經寫過的一個論文,可以回應不同的題目,也可以是你自己設計的主題。(這也蠻多學生寫的)
