此前,Common App官方宣布2021-2022申请季部分板块会做出调整。比如:
1、主文书第4题有改动,变成“Reflect on something that someone has done for you that has made you happy or thankful in a surprising way. How has this gratitude affected or motivated you?”
其他6道题目没有变化,并且“额外信息”部分仍然保留COVID-19的备选问题“分享疫情对你个人和学术的影响”。
①、Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
②、The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
③、Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
⑤、Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
⑥、Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?
⑦、Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you've already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design.
2、另外,为了适应越来越多样化的学生,减少偏见或歧视,Common App决定修改部分个人信息问题。
比如:公民身份的选项中,“Other (non-US)” 替换成 International students 和 Undocumented/DACA students 两个选项。
删除父母和兄弟姐妹相关问题,父母的职业、学历、就业情况相关问题设置为Optional。
性别描述部分,用词从 “sex” 改成 “legal sex”。
