那些奇才都要回答什么脑洞大开(奇葩刁钻)的问题?盘点美国名校文书题目

 

已经结束申请的小伙伴们,回想申请季中让人头秃的文书,是不是还会瑟瑟发抖~~很多学生看完了今年的题目,直呼别说写了,读懂题目都不容易。

 

可以说是攻击性不大,伤害性极强!

 

今天我们一起来盘点2020-2021美国大学那些脑洞大开(奇葩刁钻)的补充文书!

 

那些奇才都要回答什么脑洞大开(奇葩刁钻)的问题?盘点美国名校文书题目

 

 

01

芝加哥大学University of Chicago

 

作为全美顶尖学府的芝加哥大学,它的文书一直以抽象、不按套路出牌、脑洞大以及极其苛刻的评分要求等出名,2020-2021最新补充文书题目,不仅给申请者带来了心灵的伤害,也在网络上引起了一阵围观(吐槽)!

 

Essay Option 1

 

Who does Sally sellher seashells to? How much wood can a woodchuckreally chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Pick a favorite tongue twister(either originally in English or translated from another language) and considera resolution to its conundrum using the method of your choice. Math,philosophy, linguistics… it’s all up to you (or your woodchuck).
——Inspired byBlessing Nnate, Class of 2024

 

莎莉将贝壳卖给谁?如果一个土拨鼠可以夹住木头,那么一个土拨鼠究竟可以夹住多少木头?选择一个喜欢的绕口令(英语绕口令或从其他语言翻译的),并使用您选择的方法考虑其难题的解决方案。数学,哲学,语言学角度均可…一切都取决于您(或你的土拨鼠)。

如果你没有听说过题干里的绕口令,大概可以这么理解:“请论述,为什么‘吃葡萄不吐葡萄皮,不吃葡萄倒吐葡萄皮’。”

 

然后再用数学或哲学解决绕口令的难题,但无论从哪一个角度来回答,你都得是专业的。

 

 

Essay Option 2

 

What can actually be divided by zero?
——Inspired by Mai Vu,Class of 2024

 

什么可以被0整除?

 

我们从小就知道, 0 不可以做被除数。当你可以完美的除以0,就推翻整个数学界了。

下一题吧……

 

“Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”

–Eleanor Roosevelt.Misattribute a famous quote and explore theimplications of doing so.

 

—Inspired by Chris Davey, AB’13

算了,换一所大学申吧……

and feel its resources behind you inwhatever task you undertake;

to make hosts of friends…who are to beleaders in all walks of life;

to lose yourself in generous enthusiasmsand cooperate with others for common ends –

this is the offer of the college for thebest four years of your life.

-William DeWitt Hyde, 7th President ofBowdoin College, 1906

 

Which line from The Offer resonates mostwith you?

The Offer represents Bowdoin’svalues. Please reflect on the line you selected and how it has meaning toyou.

# UC的文书更像一篇短篇小说,可以总结为:

· 题目1和7可以归为一类,是关于领导力的,可以从接触的周围的人、事、思想着手,想一想外部世界对你的影响,以及你如何产生影响。

· 题目2和6是关于内在自我的,什么对你有意义,是什么让你成为你自己。想想是什么驱动你的,为什么,它如何影响了你的生活。

· 题目3、4、5和8是关于成就的,可以想想你在生活中所取得的成就和让你骄傲的事情。

 

4篇文书又要尽力突出自己的全面性,又不能重复去吹捧自己某一方面的特质,还是非常挑战人的。
