强烈推荐!《天道教育独家评论:课外活动中领导力是美国大学申请关键》

  昨天看到一篇天道教育外教老师分析的一篇关于”课外活动中哪些表现力是美国留学申请成功的关键要素“的内容,感觉很不错,想推荐给各位准备赴美留学的朋友们!


  《天道教育独家评论:课外活动中领导力是美国大学申请关键》


  A recent article in the Tennessean highlighted the increasing difficulty that students face when applying to top universities in the U.S. In less than ten years, Vanderbilt has gone from accepting 31% of students to 9.3% in 2015. These statistics are not just applicable to Vanderbilt or other top 20 schools. Boston University had over 60,000 applicants. UCLA had around 100,000 applicants. Yet, the number of students that are being admitted are on the decline or staying the same, but never increasing. So what does this all mean with regard to your application next year?


  近日,《田纳西人日报》一篇文章特别指出,学生申请美国顶尖大学所面临的困难越来越大。范德堡大学的录取率不到十年时间竟从31%降到2015年的9.3%。这些数据不仅限于范德堡和其余前20的大学。波士顿大学的申请者已达六万多,加州大学洛杉矶分校甚至接近了十万,然而被录取的学生数或减少或保持不变,却从未上升。那么,这对2016年的申请意味着什么呢?


  It means that you better be prepared to pull out all the stops to look your best in front of the application committee. According to statistics released by Vanderbilt University, every single person admitted had been a leader in one of their extracurricular organizations. Every single person. This means that you need to not only be a part of diverse extracurricular activities but you need to be doing the best you can to obtain a leadership position. Colleges are looking more and more for students that are revered by their peers. Students who get elected by their peers display that they have leadership qualities. Furthermore, it tells colleges that these students are not only passionate about their extracurricular activities but willing to do as much as possible to make their organization a better organization.


  意味着你要准备好使出浑身解数,把最好的自己呈现给录取委员会。根据范德堡大学发布的数据,每一位被录取的学生都曾在其课外活动的组织中担任过领导职位。是的,每一位!这意味着你不仅需要广泛参与到课外活动中,还需要尽最大努力取得领导地位。大学越来越倾向录取那些受同龄人爱戴的学生,由同龄人推举出来的学生,这样的学生可见是很具有领导才能的。同时也告诉大学,这样的学生不仅对参与的课外活动充满热情,而且愿意竭尽全力将自己的组织建设得更好。


  Towards the end of the semester and early into next semester organizations will be holding elections for the leadership boards. This is your opportunity to run for a leadership position. The experience, whether or not you win or lose, will make you a better person in the process. If you are elected, then you will have the opportunity to display qualities that are highly valued in front of colleges.


  每学期末和学期初,各组织都会举行领导层选举,这是你竞争领导地位的机会。不论输或赢,参与竞选的经历都会让你在过程中变成更优秀的人。如果你被选上了,那你就有机会在大学面前展示那些他们高度重视的才能。


  One thing that should be avoided is an attempt to have multiple leadership positions. Having multiple leadership positions in different organizations can show that you are not really dedicated to a particular cause or organization but rather that you are after the position and not really trying to make a difference in the organization. This is not true for every person because there are plenty of highly talented people around the world.


  有一件要避免的事,就是不要试图担任多个领导职位。在不同组织担任不同领导职位不但会显得你对某项活动或组织不是太投入,而且会显得你只是在追逐头衔,并非真正想在组织内有所作为。


  Nevertheless, if you find yourself being overstretched by extracurricular activities, then you need to focus only on a few of them. Being a leader in an organization means that you are dedicated to that particular organization and willing to do what it takes to make it better. This is the quality these top universities are after. They want someone diverse, intelligent, and passionate. You have the opportunity right now to get prepared to run for your school’s organization’s election. You can demonstrate the qualities colleges want. This is your moment.


  如果你觉得课外活动让你不堪重负,那你须把精力集中在少数活动上。担任组织领导者意味着你要对该组织全心投入,并且要努力发展它------这是顶尖大学所看重的品质。他们要的是多元、聪明、富有激情的人。现在就是你做好准备参与学校各个组织的竞选的最佳时机。相信你能向大学展示他们想要看到的品质。属于你的时刻到了。正当其时,请把握当下!”
