耶鲁为什么这么早录取学生?

耶鲁为什么这么早录取学生?

最近我帮助的一位学生在今年的2月份被耶鲁录取,消息令人振,也引来不少朋友的问题学生没有申早期划(SCEA, 选择的早期行),而早期取的通知在12月中旬放了,那么她什么会在2月5日么早就收到耶取通知呢?

 

首先必弄清楚什么是likely letter, 暂时把它翻成“取信”吧,秀学生正是收到的耶的此信,分享文章上面的截。二月份正是取信的候,所有收到取信的学生在正式取通知书发放的3月底或4月初来临时,都会被耶鲁录取。下面些英文段落是我在六年前写的取信”的解现尝试让谷歌翻后自己再色成中文,核心内容应该还适用,取人数或其他数据可能有化。

 

"三年前,我当地的一位学生几乎被她申的所有大学接受。在名牌大学公布它的正式决定的前几周,收到了耶大学的取函。封信最帮助她在大,耶和哈佛之做出选择。我说这序的原因是,因她在交叉取的决定程中比早的候就排除了哈佛。在我得知她在耶大学的外活中再次示她的袖能力,她担任耶每日新(YDN)的行人,份美国大学最古老的无中断的校园报纸的最高商。 YDN的主,像William F. Buckley,通常是耶会和其他耶秘密组织在大学三年的招募象。在一些像阿默赫斯特或威廉姆斯等文理学院也出具“early write" (早通知)等通知,起到取信的同作用。那么倒什么是取信?

 

都知道,常春藤盟校的内部协议禁止常春藤各校向有潜力成为职业选手的学生运动员发学金。基于个明的原因,她球或橄球与杜克和斯坦福完全不在一个级别上。与体育学金的放相似,常春藤有一个规则,那就是他在3月下旬或4月初的一个非常狭窄的时间窗口,公布他的常规录取决定信。耶大学本科生招生的院Brenzel是这样描述取信的:“...我希望学生有充分的时间了解到他想知道的关于耶的一切...”。取信在不规则的情况下采取的争策略之一,这样取的秀学生最早的美好印象。封信基本上会,如果你不会在学上遭遇重大挫折,你会期在4月1日收到我的官方取信。伴随取信来的惊喜和兴奋信会增强录取学生最终选择去耶和其他名校读书的可能性。

 

每年耶大学会在25,000的申人中,放大100封取信。在常两的申请评审后,取信由耶的院长亲自决定。信确是封幸运的信,人在常请过程中不指望但是梦想拿到的西。网上可以搜到耶取信的模板,那将会丰富你对预取信的认识

 

Three years ago, a local kid was virtually accepted by every college she applied. The applicant also received a likely letter from Yale several weeks prior to the typical dates when the elite colleges released their decisions. The likely letter eventually helped her make a choice between Penn, Yale and Harvard. I made this order since she ruled out Harvard in the previous round of her cross-admit decision process. And now she shows her leadership ability again on the Yale campus, particularly in her extracurricular activities, by serving as the Publisher of the Yale Daily News (YDN), the highest position on the business side of this oldest college news in the United States. The editor-in-chief of YDN, such as William F. Buckley, was usually a target to  be tapped during junior year by the Skull and Bones or other secret societies. In some small liberal arts schools like Amherst or Williams, “early write” notification serves the same purpose of likely letter. So what is a likely letter?

 

We are all aware that the agreements of Ivy League schools have prohibited Ivies to offer athletic scholarships to the top student athletes with potentials to become a professional. This is an obvious reason why their sports teams are basically not in the same level as state universities’ as well as Stanford or Duke’s basketball or football. Similar to the sports scholarships, Ivy League also have a rule for them to disclose their admission decision letters in a very narrow window of time in late March or early April for the regular decision process. Yale undergraduate admissions dean Brenzel described the likely letter as “…we want this student to have ample opportunity to see everything they can see about Yale…” But the likely letter is one of the few strategies by the admissions office to gain competitive advantage over their rivals by providing the first positive impression to their top applicants on the condition that no rules were violated. The letter basically would say that if you are not going to have a major setback on your academic performance, you will be expecting an official admitted letter from us on April 1. The surprise and excitement coming along with the arrival of likely letter would have enhanced the chance of top applicant to matriculate.

 

Each year Yale issued approximately 100 likely letters from over 25,000 applicants. After the regular two reviewers’ reading of the files, the decision on likely letter has to be made by Yale dean himself. The likely letter is really a lucky letter that an applicant would not expect but dream to have it in the regular round of competition. The following materials, including a real likely letter that student disclosed, will be enriching your knowledge on how likely letter works."

 

在很多年前就确定了重振耶理科的划,他花10亿美元建工学院大楼,新的生物楼也将会完成。耶鲁现出一付姿与理科名校斯坦福和麻省理工学院,争美国和世界的科学杰出本科申人。大家不要忘了,以诺贝尔奖的校友算,耶鲁摇摇领先于斯坦福。上次我数,斯坦福至今只有一位本科校友获诺贝尔奖,耶恐怕有十几位。科学做到精致程度同能体会到自然世界的美,耶以匹戏剧和音等人文境,正是吸引有人文情怀的未来科学家的地方。当然我也必指出,耶太吸引人的人文学科使得科学学生后有背叛的可能。

 

从2011年开始,了吸引科学方面的秀申人,耶鲁实施了一个被称YES-W(Yale Engineering and Science Weekend)的招生划。耶每年邀80-100名学左右,旅行和吃住全免,通常在二月中旬,在耶三天的周末,些学生全部收到了耶取信。他在耶聆听包括著名科学家的讲课,有次耶鲁动用了耶本科校友出身的诺贝尔医学得主James Rothman。他当然会参精美的耶校园,特是科学校区,以及亲历本科生的科学展。Rothman是这样描述他的耶鲁经历的:“耶的一个了不起的并且永没有改的地方,就是她的学院系密的境无人能复制。大部分我的朋友不是科学家,但是在耶与他们结识的友是我一生的富”。

 

的YES-W划不需要特,因在普通申表和耶鲁辅助材料里,他很容易发现热爱STEM(科学、技、工程和数学)的学生。以前一位我高中的学生是以得了西子高中科学AP而令人印象深刻,也就是修了很多AP科学程并且成绩优秀,但奖项现在被西子取消了。耶在我心中的特地方,希望位收到取信的学生最选择
