美本招生官问答丨六所顶尖文理学院招生官为中国申请者答疑招生官为中国申请者答疑

 1.  Q: Do most liberal arts colleges have open curriculum?

是不是大部分的文理学院都是开放式课程设置?

A: Hi, no, only a handful of colleges and universities in the United States have an open curriculum. That said, generally, at liberal arts colleges, you have a lot of flexibility to explore different disciplines and you don't need to declare your major(s) until the end of your second year. So even though there may not be an open curriculum, liberal arts colleges in general offer you great flexibility in constructing your academic journey.

你好,不是的,在美国仅仅有一部分文理学院和综合性大学是开放性课程设置。换句话说,在文理学院,学生可以有比较灵活的方式探索不同的科目,在大学的前两年学生可以不确定专业方向,大二结束再选专业都是可以的。因此,即使你所在的文理学院并不是开放性课程设置,总体来讲,文理学院给学生提供了非常灵活的选课方式帮助学生探索学术之旅。



 2.  Q: Will Chinese F-1 students attending a school in US be evaluated by international AOs or AOs in their respective US regions?

持有F1签证的美高学生的申请是由国际招生办公室的招生官还是学生所在高中的区域招生官审理材料的?

A: All students will be evaluated within the holistic review process. Different schools might have different logistical procedures as to how they go through their applications. So it depends.

所有学生的申请都是在整体审核中接受评估的。不同的学校在如何审理学生的申请材料过程中可能有不同的审理程序,这个取决于各个学校的招生办公室的审核流程。



 3.  Q: Is research experience(e.g. work in a university lab and publish an essay) helpful during application?

科研经验(例如在大学的实验室工作并发表相关的论文)是否有助于申请?

A: It can be but is not expected. If you have a passion for a certain subject and have an opportunity to do research then go for. However, do not spend money and time to do that just to impress an admission office. We will not hold in against someone who doesn’t have that on their resume.

威廉姆斯学院招生官回答:科研经历会有一些帮助但是并不是一定的。 如果你对某个学科充满热情并且有机会做研究,那就去吧。 但是,不要仅仅为了给招生办公室留下深刻印象而花费金钱和时间去做科研。即使简历上没有科研经历也并不会影响你的录取。



 4.  Q: I am taking IB. How much of the score is required to apply? How about SAT?

目前我正在学习IB课程,IB课程的分数要多少分才可以申请?SAT成绩呢?

A: We don’t have cutoffs for IB or SAT/ACT scores. Also all of us are test optional right now so we don’t require that test. We look at all of your pieces of the application to determine a decision. (Dean,Williams College)

威廉姆斯学院招生官回答:我们并没有明确要求的IB和SAT/ACT成绩。目前我们实行标化可选择政策,并不要求学生一定要提交标准化考试成绩。学生的录取结果取决于他的所有申请材料和内容。



 5.  Q: Which of the six colleges best prepare a STEM student who plans to work in industries after graduate?

这六个文理学院哪个对于在毕业之后想要在工业领域发展的理工科类学生?

A: Thanks for your question. All of our schools have strong STEM curricular offerings, and the majority of our students at least take classes in STEM or major in them. Liberal arts colleges are a great place to study STEM subjects and go on to work in whatever field you're interested in after you graduate. (Ryan Ricciardi)

感谢你的问题,所有的学校都给学生提供强大的STEM课程,我们的大多数在校生都上过STEM类的课程或者是STEM专业。文理学院是学习 STEM 科目并在毕业后继续在您感兴趣的任何领域工作的好地方。



 6.  Q: Bowdoin do u have neuroscience major and pre-med program?

鲍登学院是否有神经科学专业和医学预科项目?

A: We were one of the first schools to offer a neuroscience major, and medicine is one of the most popular fields to go into after you graduate. We don't have a pre-med major, but you can major in whatever you want and go on to med school. Look into our pre-health advising programs.

我们是最早开设神经科学专业的学校之一,医学院是你本科毕业之后可以选择的领域之一。 我们没有医学预科专业,但你可以主修任何你想要的专业,然后继续上医学院。可以参考看一下我们的健康预科项目。



 7.  Q: Who is NOT fit for an LAC experience?

哪些学生不适合选择文理学院?

A: Everyone can fit into the LAC experience. We are not all the same though, so do your homework/research and find out where you might fit in terms of location, majors, vibe, etc. (Dean Mendes-Williams College)

其实每个人都可以适合文理学院的氛围。每个文理学院不尽相同,建议可以做一下研究根据你所倾向的地理位置,专业,学术氛围等方面考察选择学校。



 8.  Q: How is a Liberal Studies degree different from a relatively more traditional major?

文理学院的学位和相对更传统的其他专业颁发的学位有什么不同?

A: The liberal arts is a model of education, not a degree and many universities have liberal arts sections of their schools. We offer most of the same degrees as the universities in the U.S. The difference are smaller, mostly undergraduate and are interdisciplinary.

文理学院是一种教育模式,而不是学位。许多综合性大学都有文理学院。 文理学院提供大部分与美国综合性大学相同的学位。不同之处在于文理学院的规模较小,主要是本科和跨学科的学习。



 9.  Q: Hello! Do you offer STEM research opportunities on campus?

文理学院是否提供STEM的研究机会呢?

A: Yes, we all do. 50% of Williams students focus on STEM and we have brand new state of the art facilities for STEM. (Dean Mendes-Williams College )

是的,我们提供的。在威廉姆斯学院,50%的学生都专注于STEM领域,学校给STEM领域的学生提供最新的设施和资源。



 10.  Q: Hi! I'm Will. I am curious about your opinions on what's the greatest advantage of liberal arts education comparing to that of national universities.

你好,我想问一下和综合性大学比较,文理学院最大的优势是什么?

A: Hi Will, small size allows our students to better connect with each in small classes and also acces to professors. Access to research opportunities. Access to support programs both academically and co-educational. You won’t have to compete with graduate students for services and research.

学校规模相对比较小可以让我们的学生在小班中更好地与每个人联系,也可以非常方便的接触到教授,获得研究机会,获得学术和男女同校的支持计划。在文理学院,本科生不必与研究生竞争服务和研究。



 11.  Q: What is the average size of a typical first-year class?

文理学院大一学生的平均班级学生数量是多少?

A: Liberal arts colleges typically have small class sizes, 15 would be the average at many liberal arts colleges.

文理学院的班级容量都比较小,平均每个班的学生人数在15人左右。



 12.  Q: Many of your colleges are located in remote areas far from cities, so how is the social scene like given their very pastoral settings? And how about access to internship & job opportunities?

文理学院的地理位置很多都坐落于远离城市的偏远地区,文理学院的学生如何与外界建立社交?以及如何获得实习和工作机会?

A: Thanks for your question. The social life is vibrant at all of the schools, including those that are in rural areas. We provide lots of funding for activities and our students are highly engaged. There are also many opportunities to be involved in our communities, especially since we get to know them very well. Our alumni networks are extremely strong. Williams has the oldest network in the U.S. There are many opportunities for internships, especially now that virtual opportunities are common. The career centers at all of the schools do a great job with job preparation and connection you with employers. LAC grads do very well in the workforce search.

威廉姆斯学院招生官回答:包括地理位置在郊区的所有文理学院的社交生活都充满活力。我们为学生的活动提供大量资金,学生的参与度也很高。因为文理学院的规模比较小,学生之间的了解程度会比较高,学生们都愿意参与到学校的社团活动。我们的校友网络非常强大,威廉姆斯拥有美国最古老的校友网络。实习机会很多,尤其是现在线上实习的机会很普遍。 所有学校的职业中心在工作准备和与雇主的联系方面做得很好。文理学院在帮助毕业生就业方面其实一直都是比较出色的。



 13.  Q: How are applicants’ profiles viewed when they are studying in countries different from their countries of citizenship? Are they viewed against other Chinese students or together with their high school mates?

对于国际学生的申请招生办公室是如何审核的?对于中国申请者,招生办公室是不是会和他所在的高中的其他申请者进行对比和筛选?

A: Hi! All of us practice contextual review, so we don’t really view students “against” one another in the review process. We evaluate students within their academic context (the school they attend, what is offered here, how the student is doing at this school), and personal context (your background, studying in a different country, etc.).

我们的招生审核过程是综合审阅的,在审阅材料的过程中招生官们并不会对比申请者们。我们通过两个方面综合评估申请者,一方面是申请者的学术情况,包括他所在的高中,学生在高中做了什么,高中给学生提供什么;另一方面是学生的个性化情况,包括申请者的背景,在不同国家的学习经历等。



 14.  Q: What are the differences between liberal arts college and the liberal arts college in some big comprehensive universities?

文理学院和综合性大学相比较,主要的区别有哪些?

A: 最核心的内容是课程是不是由教授授课,文理学院都是由教授上课。

波莫纳学院招生官:学院比较注重实践性课程例如工程,电影制作等方面的课程。

鲍登学院招生官:学生和教授的关系比较近,所有的资源都给本科生,本科教学质量比较高,学生可以与行业专家一起研究,课程的选择比较自由灵活,为个人量身定制课程。
