安多福最新的招生简报 (链接在内)

 

开始简单叙述了一下今年的招生情况,然后宛若一封长长的拒绝信,招生办主任写给大多数面临失望的申请生。写的非常好,建议各位同学家长认真读一下。摘两段:

 

We live in a culture that does not readily present opportunities for disappointment. Failure is too often perceived to be an experience to be avoided at all costs. But is it better not to try than to be disappointed? And is one person’s success another’s failure? Is not being admitted to a secondary school a failure?

 

我们生活在一种不给失望机会的文化里。失败经常是我们竭尽全力要避免的东西。但是不是不敢尝试比失望更好呢?一个人的成功就是另一个人的失败吗?没有被某一个寄宿学校录取就是失败吗?

 

Each year my heart breaks when parents call the office to find out what their children did wrong in an unsuccessful attempt for admission. In the vast majority of cases, the child has not done anything wrong. The committee chose students who were perceived to be better matches for Andover’s program. The students who are not admitted will go on to be successful at secondary schools all over the world. Success does not begin at Andover, and it does not end with a waitlist or deny letter. 

 

每年当家长打电话到招生办询问他们的孩子做错了什么导致申请失败时,我的心都要碎了。绝大多数的情况是,孩子什么都没有做错。只是招生委选择了那些跟安多福更适合的学生。没有被录取的学生可以在世界各地其他寄宿学校获得成功。成功不一定要在安多福开始,也不以被安多福拒绝或等待而结束。

 

Students, in addition to feeling disappointed for a certain period of time, consider this experience one that will prepare you for the future. It may be helpful to think about what you may have learned through the process. Has applying to Andover taught you something about yourself as a person? As a student? Will it help you in future application processes? Is this an opportunity to show that you can bounce back from disappointment, which is a key life skill? Were you admitted to another school(s)? Is there a chance that that school(s) may be a better match for you?

 

同学们,在一段时间的失望之余,要把这次经历当作未来的一个准备。想一想你在这个过程中学到了什么。  申请安多福有没有让你对你自己,作为一个人或作为一名学生,有个新认识?这次经历对将来申请其他学校有没有帮助?这是不是一个让你展示你可以从失望中振作起来的机会?这是人生一个很关键的技能。如果你被另一所学校录取了,会不会那所学校更适合你呢?
