芝加哥大学2017us.news美国大学排行榜在美国TOP3,和哈佛大学齐名,绝对是大家公认的牛校,出了91位诺尔贝奖,22位普利策奖,4位图灵奖。可以说,芝大是很多学生的梦校,但梦校不好进,在面对它的烧脑文书题目时,我们可能只有无奈的表情,只能对它又爱又恨,不少学生在文书上败下阵来,绞尽脑汁,依然无从下笔。

但这是进芝加哥大学的必经之路,也是它筛选学生的手段:如果文书题目能激发你的兴趣,让你脑洞大开,那这所牛校可能蛮适合你。如果看完题目,你的反应是他或许根本就不该出现在你的选校列表里。

 

芝大通常在每年夏天,8月申请系统开放之前就公布出文书题目,以便留给大家更多时间思考(可能学校自己也觉得太烧脑了)。我们今天一起来瞅瞅2017-2018的补充文书题目。

Requires Extended Eassy(Choose One) 

“The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.” – Joseph Joubert

Sometimes, people talk a lot about popular subjects to assure ‘victory’ in conversation or understanding, and leave behind topics of less popularity, but great personal or intellectual importance. What do you think is important but under-discussed?

-Anonymous Suggestion

 

翻译:争论的目的或讨论的目的不应该是胜利,而是进步。——约瑟夫儒贝尔


人们谈论很多关于受欢迎的话题,以保证对话或理解中的胜利,留下很重要能给人智慧启发、但不不太受欢迎的话题。你认为重要但是讨论不足的话题有哪些?

Due to a series of clerical errors, there is exactly one typo (an extra letter, a removed letter, or an altered letter) in the name of every department at the University of Chicago. Oops! Describe your new intended major. Why are you interested in it and what courses or areas of focus within it might you want to explore? Potential options include Commuter Science, Bromance Languages and Literatures, Pundamentals: Issues and Texts, Ant History... a full list of unmodified majors ready for your editor’s eye is available here:https://collegeadmissions.uchicago.edu/academics/majors-minors.

-Inspired by Josh Kaufman, Class of 2018

 

翻译:因为一系列的错误,在芝加哥各个院系的名字里面都有错误(多一个字母、少一个字母、或者字母顺序错了)。请讲述一下你想申的专业。为什么你要申请这个专业以及这个专业里面哪些方向是你感兴趣的呢?备选项有:计算机、Bromance 语言、文学、问题的基本原理、蚂蚁历史以及其它你可以自己创造的专业:https://collegeadmissions.uchicago.edu/academics/majors-minors.

-Inspired by Josh Kaufman, Class of 2018

Earth. Fire. Wind. Water. Heart! Captain Planet supposes that the world is made up of these five elements. Were familiar with the previously-noted set and with actual elements like hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, but select and explain another small group of things (say, under five) that you believe compose our world.

-Inspired by Dani Plung, Class of 2017

 

翻译:土、火、风、水、心,地球觉得这个世界由这五种元素组成,我们很清楚以上几种物质具有氢气、氧气、氮气,或者选个一组小事物你认为可以构成这个世界的(比如小于5)

The late New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham once said "Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I dont think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization." Tell us about your “armor.”

-Inspired by Adam Berger, Class of 2020

 

翻译: 纽约时报的摄影师Bill Cunningham说过时尚是自己在枯燥日常中得以存活的盔甲,不认为有人能够离开它。没有时尚的生活就如同社会失去了文明。” 请告诉我们你的盔甲是什么?

Fans of the movie Sharknado say that they enjoy it because “it’s so bad, it’s good.” Certain automobile owners prefer classic cars because they “have more character.” And recently, vinyl record sales have skyrocketed because it is perceived that they have a warmer, fuller sound. Discuss something that you love not in spite of but rather due to its quirks or imperfections.

-Inspired by Alex Serbanescu, Class of 2021


翻译:电影《鲨卷风》的粉丝们说之所以喜欢它就是因为它足够差劲反而变得很好。有一些智能自动汽车的拥有者更偏爱经典款是因为那些车更具有特色。近期Vinyl唱片的销量创造了新高,因为听众们认为他们的产品具备更圆浑更柔美的音效。讨论一下你所喜欢的但被大众认定为不完美或者奇怪的事物。

In the spirit of adventurous inquiry, pose your own question or choose one of our past prompts. Be original, creative, thought provoking. Draw on your best qualities as a writer, thinker, visionary, social critic, sage, citizen of the world, or future citizen of the University of Chicago; take a little risk, and have fun.

 

翻译:秉着大胆探索的精神,你可以自己提出一个问题。如果你出的题目很新颖又很有想法,那么写一篇文章不会是难事。请展现你最优秀的一面,不论是作家、思想者、梦想家、愤青、圣人、世界公民,还是芝加哥大学未来一员,来挑战一下自己,感受其中的乐趣

 

不过芝加哥大学的文书题目也是出了名的刁钻古怪了

各种标新立异,烧脑又奇葩

看来他们也是想找到心目中的怪咖

不过

即使是这样烧脑又奇葩的文书

我们也是在去年的申请季斩获了一枚offer~
