      这里提供一篇范文,是回答Emory大学类似的题目的:
 
      Emory University: If you could create an academic course that is in the Emory University spirit of collaboration, creativity, entrepreneurship and inquiry, what would it be? What impact would the course have on you and your classmates’ educational experience? (500 words)
 
      Why do I love chocolate while my brother gags at the scent of it? Why are some people more attracted to Italian food than Mexican food? Why do we like some foods during the summer, and others during the fall? Can we predict what people might find enjoyable based on their background and attitudes? As an avid foodie, I have always wondered what it is that attracts each person to different tastes.
 
      These are a few of the questions we would answer in my Freshman Seminar class on “Food for Thought.”
 
      We would purchase, cook, and taste foods from all around the world and observe the neurological effects that each has. While there is common knowledge of the basic proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, along with how a good balance should be struck in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, this new class would focus on the subtle differences in types of signals emitted by the brain when different foods are consumed. Students would be exposed to the theory and practice of neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI and PET scans. We would identify neurotransmitters emitted as a result of the food ingested and study if different parts of the brain “light up” in response to different foods.
 
      Along with creating a brain-food map, students would learn how to use statistically sound methods to study how variables such as a subject’s ethnic background, age, gender, and social attitudes such as open mindedness, correlate with the subject’s likes and dislikes.
 
      This class will also address cultural elements of food. When eating foods from around the world, in order to fully appreciate the dish as a whole, it is important to understand the context surrounding what lands on our plates. We would read short stories or passages and watch excerpts of popular film focused on food from the countries whose cuisine we are testing. Cooking and tasting food together are great ways to bring people together, as seen in many movies such as Ratatouille and The Hundred-Foot Journey.
 
      Not only would this class be informative, but it would also be an engaging, hands-on experience, and would provide freshmen with two valuable experiences during their first year at college—forming community and rethinking their fundamental approaches to academics by introducing them to interdisciplinary thought. “Food for Thought” would expose freshmen to an integrated approach to science while providing a fun environment for freshmen to get to know each other. At the end of the class, all students would have a better understanding of neuroscience as well as an appreciation for different cultures and their unique foods.
 
      这是一篇充满活力的文章。这位学生真实地想象了一个跨学科的主题,将她兴趣爱好里轻松、有趣的部分-食物,与她对医学和神经科学的兴趣融合在一起,Emory的Pre-Med是很强的。通过她描述的大一的这段“宝贵经历”,她向招生委员会展示了自己就是学校需要的人!
附加文书
Tell us about your major
 
      有些大学,特别是一些规模相对较大、按学院招生的学校会要求申请人说明为什么要申请特定的专业或学校。如果是专业还没确定,有的学校会问你对于你感兴趣的专业的一些想法。
 
      来看几个学校的题目:
      Cornell University: Why are you drawn to studying the major you have selected? Please discuss how your interests and related experiences have influenced your choice. Specifically, how will an education from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and Cornell University help you achieve your academic goals? (Please limit your response to 650 words.)
 
      Brown University: Why are you drawn to the area(s) of study you indicated earlier in this application? If you are "undecided" or not sure which Brown concentrations match your interests, consider describing more generally the academic topics or modes of thought that engage you currently. (150 word limit)
 
      USC: Describe how you plan to pursue your academic interests at USC. Please feel free to address your first- and second-choice major selections. (250 word limit)
 
      这种类型的文章中包含着两部分的内容 – 一是这是一篇“Why US?”类型的文章;另外,学校还希翼了解你说明你在5到10年左右的一个打算。
 
      解题思路:
      A.  首先,使用你写“Why US”类型的文章(具体细节)所采取的策略。访问本科课程的网站或你正在申请或感兴趣的专业,了解在校生或校友的情况。遇到感兴趣的内容就记下来。仔细查看,学校网站是否有暑期课程、实习、科研或是海外交换等任何与你刚兴趣的专业相关的并且吸引你的活动。
 
      B. 其次,谈谈你想要在5到10年内的目标。想象一下你梦寐以求的工作,并告诉招生委员会这个特定的课程或专业将如何帮助你实现这一目标。即使你以后不一定就真的按照这个目标或规划去做,你依然需要在Essay中写的比较具体。你需要证明你已经考虑过它并且有激情或职业在这一领域发展。
 
      这里给大家看一个USC的范文:
      I am interested in studying International Relations or East Asian Studies. My mother is Chinese and my father is American. When they met, their two countries could not have been more distant. But today, China and America have to increasingly understand one another, economically, politically, and culturally. I am able to stand at the crossroads of these two countries, and I hope to use my time at Brown to learn Mandarin and to study abroad in China. I am also excited about the East Asian Studies requirement to engage with countries beyond China; learning about migratory patterns and cultural conversations in the region and studying Korea and Japan will help me crystallize my sense of the region.
 
      Diversity-in-community essay
 
      这也是一种很常见的Essay类型。学校希翼了解你可以给大学带去什么,因为美国的大学普遍都非常重视“Diversity”。你可以根据但不限于自己的身份:性别、种族、民族、所处的社会经济环境或其他方面来回答这个问题。此类文章需要你找出自己与众不同的地方,并且你可以用这种与众不同与你周围的人相处并给他们带来积极的影响。
 
      题目:
      Rice University: The quality of Rice's academic life and the Residential College System are heavily influenced by the unique life experiences and cultural traditions each student brings. What personal perspective do you feel that you will contribute to life at Rice? (500)
 
      Duke University: Optional essay: Duke University seeks a talented, engaged student body that embodies the wide range of human experience; we believe that the diversity of our students makes our community stronger. If you'd like to share a perspective you bring or experiences you've had to help us understand you better-perhaps related to a community you belong to or your family or cultural background-we encourage you to do so. Real people are reading your application, and we want to do our best to understand and appreciate the real people applying to Duke. (250 word limit)
 
      写作策略:
      回顾你在做BS时思考到的一些问题,想一想你所发现的你与众不同的东西。思考下哪些东西对别人是无所谓的,但对你来说却是非常重要的东西。想想你写的关于你的父母、兄弟姐妹、家乡或周围社区的内容。
 
      还是提供一篇范文:
      I was born and raised in a small town in southern California and attended a big public high school. Here, everyone is racially mixed-up. Black, Asian, Hapa, Hispanic, and other combinations mingle in our loud school hallways. I never had much of a reason to think about my ethnic heritage until recently. My maternal grandfather is Hawaiian, and he married a ‘haole,’ or a white person. My paternal grandparents are white Californians. I look almost entirely white, and I get to move through the world feeling like any old white guy. But when my grandfather got sick and eventually passed away at the end of high school, I became interested in that part of my background.
 
      I learned about the state’s history and the colonial presence that white people had. I also learned how many people in Hawaii now serve in the Armed Forces. This is a complicated history, and one I am interested in exploring more in college. Though I don’t know if I will ever live in Hawaii long-term, I want to study history or anthropology to write about this part of American history, which I never knew about growing up. I think this cultural background could bring something unique to the Duke community. I also think it can contribute to conversations about social justice, which are big in my high school, but which entirely white people sometimes struggle to contribute to. My sense of containing multiple racial identities now will shape me and the school I attend.
