波士顿大学来访——你是否也是那六万分之一

  新学年伊始,成都国际高中-成外AP课程中心将如惯例迎来多所美国高校的招生官到访。这样与大学招生官面对面交流的机会旨在增进学校间的了解,并帮助学生们获取第一手的院校招生及录取信息。

  9月11日中午,我们迎来了波士顿大学(Boston University)招生官Samantha Fifield女士,高二及部分高三同学和升学指导老师们一起参加了此次招生官见面会。

波士顿大学

  历年来,波士顿大学以其得天独厚的地理位置、优秀的教育资源和多元的校园文化,收到了无数来自世界各地申请者抛出的橄榄枝。就在刚过去的申请季中,该大学的本科申请人数超过六万人次,已被纳入到最难进的美国高校名单之列。近几年来,AP课程中心每年都有高三学子在众多申请者中脱颖而出,被波士顿大学录取。Samantha表示,AP课程中心的培养模式已经受到了该校校方的高度认可。

  此次大学来访,招生官首先介绍了波士顿大学的规模,地理位置,学科设置、课外活动及转专业政策等基本信息。招生官指出,虽然波士顿大学是一所规模相对较大的学校,但师生比就如文理学院一样只有1:10,这样的资源配置有利于增进师生间的关系,并让每一位同学都能获得及时的辅导和帮助。关于申请类型,招生官就该校的ED1、ED2和RD录取原则进行了详细介绍,并建议把波士顿大学视为梦校的学生选择ED申请。同时,招生官建议有条件的申请者都能参加第三方面试,并表示虽然面试不是强制性的,但是招生官会期望通过面试挖掘更多关于申请者的相关信息。

  在随后的问答环节中,同学们积极提问,Samantha分别就BU的补充文书信息、学校提供的实习机会、招生部门对申请材料的审核程序、BU的校园生活等多个方面一一作答。此次见面会再次向美国院校展现了AP学子的风貌,招生官在会后与升学指导老师的交流中,特别指出同学们的问题是她到访过的学校中少有的具有深度与思考的提问,给她留下了深刻印象。

以下为部分同学参加见面会后记录的感想

  The workshop from BU was definitely a nice experience for a senior student. Being admitted by BU is hard, but preparing more materials than other applicants may ease the difficulty for us. For instance, although SAT Subject Test is not required by BU, the admission officer implied that the students with the matching SAT Subject Test scores are more likely to be accepted by the university. Thus, our senior students must be well prepared in every aspect during this application season.

  I have got lots of information about BU through this indelible experience. Firstly, I was familiar with the application process. BU has three admission types, including Early Decision 1, Early Decision 2 and Regular Decision. The admission officer was so passionate and she provided us with plentiful information about this university. She was also willing to answer the questions raised by students. BU contains various majors that offer many opportunities for students to choose. Students can change their majors freely as well. I like this university because it has my preferred major-- Mathematical Economics. Many universities don’t actually offer this major to undergraduate students. BU is located in urban area. Thus, it is convenient for students to go shopping or hang out with their friends. Meanwhile, there are more entertainment activities in urban area than universities in rural areas.Hence, students can have joyful lives in Boston University.

  Having a chance to attend the college visit is jaunty. In the very beginning, the advisor just introduces her to us about her academic life in Boston University and the overview of campus’ infrastructure. The geological location and climate in Boston actually fits my taste for the place where I would probably choose to live and study. The video made by schools completely reveals which kind of students should study there.During the Q&A section, seniors have pointed out doubts that deserve careful thinking. One of the essential questions is about the food and housing management in universities because they are the place where you are going to live for at least 4 years. Environment should be taken into account when choosing the dream school. Another suggestion about going to a college visit is to do some research before so that the question asked will be much worthier.Universities contain more than one school to apply for, so it is important to choose which field you like to focus on and participate in relative activities.Universities in America such as BU all offer a large amount of majors and opportunities to transfer, which is beneficial for students who haven’t decided their career goal yet.

  Today’s speech given by the AO from Boston University is probably one of the best speeches that I have ever heard of. It contains useful information about applying BU, like the questions for the supplemental essay and the standard we must have in order to fit its requirements. On the other hand, she also introduced the schools and campus life in BU, like its Liberal Arts School, activities, and community works. This kind of college visit is awesome for our Grade 11 students as we can get to know more about U.S. higher education and be encouraged to study harder to achieve our goals.
