学生感言

1、最大的成长是什么?

Sino Elite helped me understand, cherish, and enjoy the application process. I would meet with my advisor once a month or so, and we would eat together and talk about my new experiences and next steps. I could tell them about a new school project I was excited about, an interesting book I read, or even just funny stories! We would joke, chat, and get productive in the same afternoon.

I learnt to love every stage of my growth, from not knowing what the TOEFL was, to writing my essays in the Sino Elite office, and how to interact with the interviewers so they can get to know me as best as possible. They are more than an organization or a provider of numerous camps that helped me strengthen my artistic and theatrical skills, they are a second family. Sino Elite didn’t just come with teachers who were experts on US boarding schools, it also came with new opportunities to grow as a person (not just a student, because we all are more than our titles), and strangers who became my friends.

骅英帮助我理解、珍惜、享受申请的每一步。我大概每个月会见顾问老师一次,我们一起吃饭,聊我新的经历以及下一步怎么做。我可以告诉他们学校里令我兴奋的新项目,我读过的有趣的书,甚至还有一些有趣的故事!整整一个下午,我们会开玩笑、闲聊、并高效地完成工作。

在骅英,我学会了热爱自己成长的每一个阶段:一开始不知道什么是托福的我,在骅英写文书的我,以及面试时尽可能让招生官了解的我。在骅英,我的艺术和舞台技能得到加强,对于我来说,骅英不仅仅是无数夏令营的组织者和提供者,更是我的第二个家。在骅英,你不仅能遇到最了解美国寄宿学校的专家,也能收获更多成长(不仅仅是作为学生这一方面),此外还有和陌生人成为朋友的机会。

But thinking back to it all, my favorite part about Sino Elite are the kind, understanding, and always available teachers. When I became worried or anxious about anything, I could call a Sino Elite teacher. One day, I was feeling extremely stressed before my student council class rep election, so decided to call Nana (a Sino Elite teacher). She helped me with my speech ideas and gave me a huge boost of confidence. I ended up with the role for the third year, and from then on, I would always call Nana when I felt stuck. They take time out of their daily lives to listen to me and give me great advice, not just about boarding schools, but life in general. They are committed, and this inspires me.

但回首整个经历,我最喜欢的是骅英老师们的善良,对我的理解,以及有求必应。当我对任何事情,不仅仅是关于申请,还有生活的方方面面感到担心或焦虑,我随时可以联系骅英的老师。

学校学生会选举的前一天,我感到特别大的压力,于是决定打电话给骅英的老师。她给我出主意,并鼓励我自信。最终,我获得了这个连任三年的职务,从此以后,每当我感到困惑时,我总会联系顾问老师们。她们不管多忙,都会抽出时间来倾听,并给我最好的建议。他们的这种奉献精神,深深的打动了我。

2、对其他同学的建议

General/ day to day

日常安排

1)Try to be as organized as possible: keep a notes folder on your phone for quick ideas and reminders, make folders on your computer for files and essays, and “sticky on top” your WeChat group so you don’t miss any messages. Don’t delete things you may need like old drafts and interview notes.

尽可能有条理:手机上建立一个便签,记录瞬间的想法以及提醒时间;电脑上建立申请文件夹,保存申请文件和文书;置顶申请微信群,避免错过任何信息;不要删除任何草稿和面试记录等申请相关信息。

2)It’s important to listen to the teachers and your parents, however, make your own decisions based on their advice. Their job is to help you, so listen to them. But your favorite school (etc.) is your choice, not theirs.

在听取了老师和父母的建议后,做决定;他们都是在帮助你,所以请参考他们的建议。但是,你自己必须作出选择,请选择自己的最爱。

3)Don’t be afraid to ask the teachers any questions, they will be there to help.

有任何问题请毫无迟疑的找老师寻求帮助。

4)In order to understand your schools, do some thorough research. Find out about clubs and courses that correspond with your talents, and analyze your choices.

请对学校做深入研究,一遍更了解他们。找出跟自己才能匹配的课程和课外活动,确定下最喜欢的。

5)Don’t get stressed over the tasks you are given, all of it will contribute to your journey and help you grow.

不要害怕和逃避任务,这些都是有助于你的成长。

Interview/ tour

校园参观和面试

1)Make sure your stories are authentic during interviews, because the admission officers can tell if you lie. Smile, have a straight posture, and talk with confidence and humor.

一定要讲真实的故事,如果撒谎,招生官能一眼看穿;保持微笑,拥有良好的姿态,自信而幽默的交谈。

2)During the interview, treat it like a fun conversation (because that’s what it is.) The interviewer simply wants to know you as an individual, so who you are to him/ her.

将面试当做有趣的谈话(事实上也确实是);招生官只是想知道你是一个怎样的人。

3)Be cheerful during your tour, ask the guide (smart) questions, and make sure your parents also do so. Please avoid argument during the tour, because the guide will be well aware and (possibly) report back to the admission officer.

校园游览时,保持愉悦,确保你和父母问向导的问题有意义;在游览过程中避免争论,因为向导可能会注意到并记录下来告知招办。

4)If the interviewer seems to be very cold/ serious, ignore it! Continue to pour positivity and stories onto them. You could also ask about a special club/ building of the school, which fills them with pride and joy (this works!). Usually, they become friendlier.

如果招生官看起来很冷漠或严肃,请不要太在意!继续保持你积极的态度,并讲述自己的故事。可以询问学校特殊的项目或者建筑,这会让他们感到骄傲的愉悦(很有用!),一般情况下他们都会变得更友好。

5)After the tour and interview, email both the tour guide and interviewer, expressing your joy.

在校园游览和面试后,给你的招生官和向导都发封感谢邮件,表达自己的欢喜。

The layout of an interview

面试安排

1)The admission officer will take you to a room, you will be asked to sit down. if you have a portfolio or gift, put it beside the chair.

招生官会将你带进一个房间,你们会做交谈,如果你有作品集或礼物,请将它们放到旁边的椅子上。

2)Blah blah questions. this is the perfect time to tell as many as your stories as possible (Sino elite will go over this with you.)

面试:这是一个最合适展示自己的时候,尽可能多讲自己的故事(在此之前,骅英会和你一起挖掘所有的故事)。

3)When the officer is talking, listen carefully and show your focus.

当招生官说话是,请集中注意力,仔细倾听。

4)At some point, they will ask you about your portfolio. Just be enthusiastic and passionate when presenting it. if they forget to ask, kindly remind them.

当他们问起你的作品集时,请保持你的热情和激情;如果他们忘记问,可以婉转地提醒他们。

5)After your interview, the officer will ask you to ask them some questions. if you did your research, it should all go smoothly. Aim to ask them about specific things that relate to you, don’t ask dumb questions.

面试完,招生官会问你有什么问题吗?如果你做了校园研究,一切都会很顺利。请问和你自己相关的、特别的事情,避免问一些“蠢问题”,比如那些在官网很容易查到的。

6)The interview ends, you shake hands, he/she gives your their contact card, you leave and your parents are brought into the room.

面试结束后,你们会握手,然后对方会给你联系方式,离开后,你的父母会被带进房间。
