2015Common Application essay题目(英汉)


Common Application    essay topic(1)                                                 

The essay demonstrates your ability to write clearly and concisely on a selected topic and helps you distinguish yourself in your own voice. What do you want the readers of your application to know about you apart from courses, grades, and test scores? Choose the option that best helps you answer that question and write an essay of no more than 650 words, using the prompt to inspire and structure your response. Remember: 650 words is your limit, not your goal. Use the full range if you need it, but don't feel obligated to do so. (The application won't accept a response shorter than 250 words.)


1) Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

2) Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?

3) Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?

4) Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?

5) Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.


1. Common 对写作又严格的要求,字数是在250--650之间,无论多了或者少了,都不接受

2. 从5个题目中选一个最能体现你特色的

3. 要写的是从你的课堂表现(推荐人写),成绩(成绩单显示), 考试(各种标准化考试体现)方面学校看不到的,就是说你要写的是你的“故事”,不是冷冰冰的成绩

4. 这种题目最好写一些显示你自己思考和思想,你的不可抹去的爱好,你经历的挑战,失败,突破等

5. 单讲讲失败,中国学生参加的课外活动太少,有质量的就更寥寥无几,因而一讲到失败,大家总是会说:某一次考试失利,高考没考好,诸如此类。这些对中国孩子和家庭是大事,但是在老外看了却是很无聊的,所以不要写这样的内容

6. 课外活动,大家也总是要写:去敬老院读报,去图书馆打扫卫生,去海边捡垃圾,这些活动大多数都是滥竽充数,走过场,完全体现不了学生自己的思想,参与度,没有了这些你就不是一个“有思想的你”

7. 那什么可以写:体现你想法的,比如你发现学校里的一些现象,对这些你的看法,你做了什么;你组织一个活动,你的挑战,心得;你的爱好,哪怕你是痴迷吃面包,从而尝试了各国的各种口味的面包,为了这些积极努力去“吃面包”,这些都是“你自己”。
