    2013-14美国大学通用申请CommonApp系统有很大变化,将于201381日正式上线。在接下来的几个月内,commonapp网站会发布更多有关申请系统变化的消息。升学引导办公室将持续关注最新动态。

一、201381日启用的新的文书题目:

Background

The Common Application Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2013-14 essay prompts. They are presented below along with the instructions that will accompany them. While not specified here, the online application will make clear that the word limit will be enforced. The new prompts and the written guidance around them are the culmination of two years of discussion about the role writing plays in a holistic selection process. The Board relied heavily on the advice of the 15 counselors who serve on its Outreach Advisory Committee. Together, these colleagues have decades of experience advising students from every academic, social, cultural, and economic background. As they considered the topics our members suggested, they worked diligently to ensure that all applicants, regardless of background or access to counseling, would have the chance to tell their unique stories.

 

Essay prompts are announced in Feb. or March every year.

 

Instructions: The essay demonstrates your ability to write clearly and concisely on a selected topic and helps you distinguish yourself in your own voice. What do you want the readers of your application to know about you apart from courses, grades, and test scores? Choose the option that best helps you answer that question and write an essay of no more than 650 words, using the prompt to inspire and structure your response. Remember: 650 words is your limit, not your goal. Use the full range if you need it, but dont feel obligated to do so. (The application wont accept a response shorter than 250 words.)

 

The 2013-14 essay prompts

? Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

? Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?

? Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?

? Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?

? Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.
