      在留学文书中,个人陈述的重要性无需多说了吧。随着留学热潮的出现,每年有大量的留学文书被制造出来,但是个人陈述的写作方法还停留在几年以前,这就导致大量格式相似的个人陈述出现,引起招生官的审美疲劳?究竟如何让自己的文书脱颖而出呢?下面小编给大家带来个人陈述写作的三大黄金法则,快来围观吧。
      法则一:认清自己的优势
      首先,我们要给“优势”下个定义:与其他同一项目申请者相比较,尤为突出的能力,或与众不同且加分的经历,才可称之为优势。反之则不然。比如,会计,作为商科的大热专业,竞争尤为激烈。超过80%的会计专业的申请者们,都在自己的素材或者文书初稿中提到自己“对数字天生敏感”。没错,跟小编这种3个人吃饭花了133块钱,每个人摊多少钱,还需要敲一敲计算器的相比,各位的数算能力的确是个优势。但是,当一项技能是申请某一项目的必备素质时,在个人陈述中去夸耀这样的技能,不仅不能将其视为“优势”,反而显得自己缺乏其他亮点,而不得不去谈这项大家都有的技能。
  接下来,我们来聊一聊可以称之为“优势”的东西。
  例如,家庭实力。不要误解美帝崇尚“个人英雄主义”就是啥啥都靠自己。谷歌帅哥副总裁Larry Page在2009年UMich的演讲中,也是上来就扯家庭关系。
  A long time ago, in the cold September of 1962, there was a Steven’s co-op at this very university. That co-op had a kitchen with a ceiling that had been cleaned by student volunteers probably every decade or so. Picture a college girl named Gloria, climbing up high on a ladder, struggling to clean that filthy ceiling. Standing on the floor, a young boarder named Carl was admiring the view. And that’s how they met. They were my parents.
  事实上,很多老美的个人陈述里在提到选择某个学校的原因是,会直接说,我爸爸是这个学校的,我妈妈是这个学校的,我哥哥姐姐是这个学校的,我们全家都是这个学校的。所以,如果家里人是你女神校校友,这绝对是个可以炫耀的点。
  除此之外,适当地炫富也是可以的,尤其是申请商学院的众亲。录取委员会非常关心,如果他们录取了你,你的未来发展空间在哪里,而老爸老妈的企业,是长期职业发展规划里的万能钥匙。只有两年工作经验的E君(GT:700+102)在500字的申请范德堡MBA的Essay中写道:
  I had the honor to receive an invitation from 某人, a second-year graduate student at Owen,to participate in 某活动. Ever since, I maintained frequent contacts with 某人 and gained profound insights of high-quality education of Owen MBA program. I am especially interested in the your MBA Leadership Development Program, because,in the long run, I will take over my father’s company, 某公司. I aim at leading the company to 某宏伟目标. I need to expand my international outlook and strengthen my unique leadership to look for the best interests of my family business.
  As a matter of fact, I have already involved in managing my father’s company as the Manager of R&D Center. I contributed to building and developing the research team and led the team to directly communicate and cooperate with 某国际企业 to adopt their technology to produce 某产品, which was the first of its kind in China. According to our financial report, this project will probably generate revenue of RMB 数字 by the end of 年份. As 某人 recommends, Owen emphasizes on experiential learning, through which I will not only form a solid theoretical grounding but also engage in a wealth of real-world practices.
      虽然E君工作经验尚欠,而且,说实话,刚在企业工作两年也不可能真正得到实质的领导岗位。但是这个Essay的开篇定会令录取委员会留下印象,也为他后来拿到录取起到了推动作用。
     法则二:直面明显劣势
      这里所说的劣势,是GPA不到3.0,实习科研经历为零,本科专业跟要申请的专业毫无关联等等之类的劣势。换句话说,GMAT考到740分,哀怨没有能够冲刺到760分的,或者,TOEFL不到70分,仍然执着于只申请藤校的,均不在此列。既然提到了GT成绩,小编就多嘴说一句关于Optional Essay的问题。有时候,学校会客气地问一句,除了我们问到的问题,还有什么你特别需要我们知道和了解的吗?针对这一题,打算花样百出地解释自己GT成绩的童鞋不在少数,有过分谦逊的,也有欲盖弥彰的。总之,如果不是100%被要求解释GT成绩,小编一般不建议自己拿GT成绩说事儿,因为很难找到合理的解释。
  如果说自己因为各种原因,无论是生病、工作科研、志愿者活动等等,导致没有充足时间复习,那么,各种事情忙完了,重新准备考试就可以了。GT考试又不是高考,每年一次,过了这村儿就没了这店儿,成绩不满意,可以卷土重来嘛。如果再接着说,申请时间紧迫,来不及了,那么只能证明留学申请的规划从一开始就没有做好。总之,这是一个没有办法用其他优势来强行弥补的点。
  从而,我们要来聊聊处理其他劣势的方法。如果一旦做好准备要在个人陈述里直面自己的某个劣势,一定要给学校一个能够接受的理由,并且,展示出自己已经在扭转这个劣势上作出的努力和一定的成绩。接下来,小编要讲一个几年来印象最为深刻的J君的故事。J君(T86,G660)就读于关于机械制造的某专科院校。但是,自从读大学之后,J君意识到了教育背景对于未来发展的重要性,他开始勤奋读书,通过自考,拿到了学士学位。可是,跟众多本科甚至名校生们竞争,毫无疑问,J君不占优势。而且,为了准备自考,他没有时间进行实习工作,简历也并不是特别充实。在他的个人陈述里,是这样解释这个问题的:
  Frankly, I used to see fundamental education as an obligation that I have to fulfill to remain in a good standing with my family, yet I had no personal drive and no pleasure in learning just for the sake of it.The failure of the College Entrance Examination subjected me to a big blow, and I started to reflect on my past behaviors and the purpose of study. Sometimes, the absence of something which you have taken for granted or even considered as a burden can suddenly make you see its value and importance. My perspective on education changed dramatically, and I realized how influential and essential it could be for my future career by receiving good education. Know
