新的申请季到来了,几乎每个敢向名校递申请的学生都是学霸,硬件(语言及标化考试成绩)都不相上下。那么招生官怎样筛选这些学生呢?这时候学生只能拼文书了,文书写的出彩与否是你成功的关键。今天我们收集了一些美国热门大学的文书题目,分享给大家参考,希望大家尽早开始准备和计划。

芝加哥大学(University of Chicago)

\


从世界边缘到自创魔法,今年芝加哥文书的脑洞相当之大,不过相对而言可以发挥的空间也不少。往年分享最爱文艺作品的题目好像取消了。

In 2015, the city of Melbourne, Australia created a ''tree-mail'' service, in which all of the trees in the city received an email address so that residents could report any tree-related issues. As an unexpected result, people began to email their favorite trees sweet and occasionally humorous letters. Imagine this has been expanded to any object (tree or otherwise) in the world, and share with us the letter you'd send to your favorite.
2015年,澳大利亚的墨尔本市给每棵树木都创立了电邮地址以便人们上报城市绿化相关的问题。不料有许多人给他们最喜欢的树木写了甜蜜且有时相当幽默的邮件。想象这种“树邮服务”已经推广到了全世界的所有事物,与我们分享你写给最爱物件的邮件。

You're on a voyage in the thirteenth century, sailing across the tempestuous seas. What if, suddenly, you fell off the edge of the Earth?
在十三世纪的大航海时代,如果你在航行中突然掉出世界边缘后会怎么样?

The word floccinaucinihilipilification is the act or habit of describing or regarding something as unimportant or of having no value. It originated in the mid-18th century from the Latin words ''floccu,'' ''naucum,'' ''nihilum,'' and ''pilus'' - all words meaning ''of little use.'' Coin your own word using parts from any language you choose, tell us its meaning, and describe the plausible (if only to you) scenarios in which it would be most appropriately used.
floccinaucinihilipilification描述没有价值的事物,由拉丁词floccu、naucum、nihilum和pilus组成。这四个词也都是没用处的意思。用任何语言生造你自己的词,告诉我们它的含义,也描述其(即便只对你个人而言)可能的最恰当使用场景。

Lost your keys? Alohomora. Noisy roommate? Quietus. Feel the need to shatter windows for some reason? Finestra. Create your own spell, charm, jinx, or other means for magical mayhem. How is it enacted? Is there an incantation? Does it involve a potion or other magical object? If so, what's in it or what is it? What does it do?
钥匙丢了?Alohomora. 制造噪音的室友?Quietus. 因为某种原因想打破窗户?Finestra. (以上三个为哈利波特中的咒语)创造你自己的魔法符咒。如何施法?需要念咒语么?是否要用到魔药或其他魔法物品,它们会是什么?魔法符咒的作用是什么?

Imagine you’ve struck a deal with the Dean of Admissions himself, Dean Nondorf. It goes as follows: you’re guaranteed admission to the University of Chicago regardless of any circumstances that arise. This bond is grounded on the condition that you’ll obtain a blank, 8.5 x 11 piece of paper, and draw, write, sketch, shade, stencil, paint etc., anything and everything you want on it; your only limitations will be the boundaries of both sides on the single page. Now the catch… your submission, for the rest of your life, will always be the first thing anyone you meet for the first time will see. Whether it’s at a job interview, a blind date, arrival at your first Humanities class, before you even say, “hey,” they’ll already have seen your page, and formulated that first impression. Show us your page. What’s on it, and why? If your piece is largely or exclusively visual, please make sure to share a creator's accompanying statement of at least 300 words, which we will happily allow to be on its own, separate page. PS: This is a creative thought experiment, so please note: selecting this essay prompt does not guarantee your admission to UChicago, or forgive poor grades, criminal mischief, or any other “circumstances” that “may” “arise.”
想象你与招生办主任Nondorf达成了协议,你被保送进入芝加哥大学。条件是你需要在一张A4纸上写、画、素描、纸模涂鸦……就任何主题以你能想到的方式进行表达。你唯一的界限是A4纸的正反两面。当然,你提交的创作在之后的人生中会是所有你新认识的人第一眼看到的东西。不论是工作面试、相亲、还是上第一堂人文课程,在你说“嗨”之前,别人已经见过了那一张纸并形成了对你的第一印象。给我们展示这一页。纸上有什么内容,为什么?如果你提交的内容大部分或全部属于视觉艺术,请确保额外附上一个不少于300词的创作者说明。说明可以另占一页。附注:这是个创新思维实验,选择这道题目并不确保你会被我校录取或你的糟糕成绩、违法乱纪或者其他“情况”能被忽略。

In the spirit of adventurous inquiry, pose your own question or choose one of our past prompts. Be original, creative, thought provoking. Draw on your best qualities as a writer, thinker, visionary, social critic, sage, citizen of the world, or future citizen of the University of Chicago; take a little risk, and have fun.
以探寻未知的冒险精神,提属于你自己的问题或者选择一个往年的文书题目。在这个过程中请带上原创性、创造力并写出发人深省的文字。好好利用你作为一位作家、思想家、梦想家、社会评论员、哲人、世界公民或芝加哥的未来社区成员的一些最好的优点,冒一冒险并享受这个过程。

圣母大学(University of Notre Dame)

\

圣母大学再度搬出校长,冒险和“秘密成就”的题目也回归了。

As a Catholic university, we strive to be a community in which the dignity of each person is respected and everyone can truly flourish. Notre Dame’s president, Rev. John Jenkins, C.S.C., challenged our community to reflect on the following statement: “Let us never do anything to make another member of our community feel unwelcome, and let us not stand by if we see others doing so. Either we walk together in mutual support, or we do not walk at all. Either we are all Notre Dame, or none of us are." Tell us about a time when you walked with others.
作为一所天主教大学,我们致力于成为这样的社区,其中每个人的尊严都能得到尊重,人人得以充分发展成长。校长John Jenkins牧师为社区定下了这个目标:“让我们从不要做任何让其他社区成员感到不受欢迎的事,也不要在发现别人做这种事情时袖手旁观。我们要么携手同行,要么道不同不相为谋。我们要么全是圣母的成员,要么都不是。”同我们分享你与他人携手同行的一刻。

What is one thing you will definitely bring to college with you?
你一定会带到大学的一样东西是什么?

What is your proudest accomplishment for which you did not receive recognition?
你最自豪但却没有受到认可的成就是什么?

You have 150 words. Take a risk.
有150词的空间。不妨冒一冒险吧。

维拉诺瓦大学(Villanova University)

\


川普的上台无疑把美国社会的分裂暴露在了光天化日之下,今年大学文书题目的更新不少体现了对社区价值的强调。维拉诺瓦大学就是一个很好的例子。

We believe that all members of our community should be committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. How would you contribute to this at Villanova?
我们相信我校的所有社区成员应该致力于多样性、平等和包容。就此而言,你将会为维拉诺瓦做出什么贡献?

Saint Augustine believed in the essential connection between the mind and the heart. Tell us about a time that your mind and heart were in conflict and how that was resolved.
圣奥古斯汀相信思维与心灵的本质联系。告诉我们你的思维与心灵相冲突的一刻(从基督教的角度来说,思维指的是人的理性,而心灵指的是人的良知、直觉等),以及这种冲突最终是如何解决的。

"Each of us strengthens all of us" is a concept that resonates deeply in the Villanova community. While this phrase may mean many different things, one aspect is that Villanovans rely on each other. Share a situation when you have needed help and what you have taken away from this experience.
“我们中的每一分子充实了这个集体”是与维拉诺瓦社区深深呼应的概念。这句话可以有许多不同的解读,其中一点即是维拉诺瓦的学生们彼此依赖。分享你需要帮助的一刻,以及你从这个经历中学到了什么。
