摘要:现在正是美国大学放榜的时间,一些在申请中获得众多名校offer的学霸也被陆续报道出来!本来以为收到一封常青藤院校的Offer便是学霸,但是今天小编将给大家介绍的却少则5份,多则获得全部8所常青藤院校的Offer学霸!

随着各个大学的录取的揭晓,各类学霸也陆续被各路媒体报道出来,前有非中国籍女孩被哈佛早申请录取的事件弄得满城风雨,后又有复旦双胞胎姐妹花孙雨朦和孙雨彤被哈佛大学录取,但是后来才发现两人读的专业非常水,堪比更伦比亚大学统计专业!

近日美国媒体相继报到两位超级牛的学霸,其中以为不仅仅拿下令人神往的常青藤院校的5所院校还斩获其他数所美国高等院校,另外一位更是获得全部常青藤院校的Offer,不仅如此,美国前十院校几乎都向她抛出了橄榄枝!

究竟两位大牛凭借什么获得如此多的Dream School的青睐?就和小站留学编辑一起来看看吧!

Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna 是一位出生在美国的尼日利亚移民,在今年的美国本科申请中,这位小姑年获得了包括常青藤(哈佛,耶鲁,宾大,哥大,达特茅斯,布朗,康内尔,普林斯顿)全部8所院校的Offer,还获得了麻省理工大学、纽约大学、约翰霍普金斯大学以及伦斯勒理工学院的录取!恐怖的是她的申请成功率是100%!

没有曾经的汗水,那有今日喜获Offer的愉悦?让我们一起来看看这位小姑娘在中学阶段做了哪些准备?Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna在中学期间一共获得的学分为101.64,一共完成了13们AP课程(大学预科课程)的学习!虽然关于他的SAT考试成绩因为隐私没有被公布出来,但是根据她现有的收获我们可以推断出来,成绩一定不低!从而我们可以看出来,Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna的学业成绩几乎是完美的!

那么她的课外活动呢?Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna是2016年英特尔科学人才发现(Intel's Science Talent Search)的40名获奖者(finalist)之一,并进入最后决赛;Augusta还是学校毕业大会上的发言致辞者(valedictorian),这在美国校园文化中是很受追捧的荣誉和头衔;Augusta从高一变申请加入哥大的实验室职位,开始的时候Augusta被拒绝!但是这并没有打击倒这个坚韧的小姑娘!她依旧和哥大实验室的负责人联系,最终获得进入该实验室滨河众多博士共事的机会!Augusta在他的文书中也突出表现了自己的坚韧性格!

说完Augusta,接下小站编辑将为大家介绍另外一位学霸——Brittany Stinson!Brittany Stinson已经获得了耶鲁大学、哥伦比亚大学宾夕法尼亚大学、达特茅斯大学和康奈尔大学常青藤中的5所院校录取通知!此外今年申请成功率仅为4.69%的斯坦福也向Brittany Stinson抛出了橄榄枝。

在媒体对Brittany Stinson的采访中,小姑娘袒露,除了最基础的标准化考试SAT成绩之外,在Common Application中所递交的申请文书对自己的申请起到极为关键的作用!Brittany Stinson也极其大方将自己的申请主文书向大众公布!Brittany Stinson选择了Common Application主文书的第一道题目:Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

接下来小编也为大家搜罗了Brittany Stinson的文书,相信对于很多对着文书发愁的小伙伴可以膜拜一下:

Managing to break free from my mother’s grasp, I charged. With arms flailing and chubby legs fluttering beneath me, I was the ferocious two­ year old rampaging through Costco on a Saturday morning. My mother’s eyes widened in horror as I jettisoned my churro; the cinnamon­sugar rocket gracefully sliced its way through the air while I continued my spree. I sprinted through the aisles, looking up in awe at the massive bulk products that towered over me. Overcome with wonder, I wanted to touch and taste, to stick my head into industrial­sized freezers, to explore every crevice. I was a conquistador, but rather than searching the land for El Dorado, I scoured aisles for free samples. Before inevitably being whisked away into a shopping cart, I scaled a mountain of plush toys and surveyed the expanse that lay before me: the kingdom of Costco.

Notorious for its oversized portions and dollar­fifty hot dog combo, Costco is the apex of consumerism. From the days spent being toted around in a shopping cart to when I was finally tall enough to reach lofty sample trays, Costco has endured a steady presence throughout my life. As a veteran Costco shopper, I navigate the aisles of foodstuffs, thrusting the majority of my weight upon a generously filled shopping cart whose enormity juxtaposes my small frame. Over time, I’ve developed a habit of observing fellow patrons tote their carts piled with frozen burritos, cheese puffs, tubs of ice cream, and weight­loss supplements. Perusing the aisles gave me time to ponder. Who needs three pounds of sour cream? Was cultured yogurt any more well­mannered than its uncultured counterpart? Costco gave birth to my unfettered curiosity.

While enjoying an obligatory hot dog, I did not find myself thinking about the ‘all beef’ goodness that Costco boasted. I instead considered finitudes and infinitudes, unimagined uses for tubs of sour cream, the projectile motion of said tub when launched from an eighty foot shelf or maybe when pushed from a speedy cart by a scrawny seventeen year old. I contemplated the philosophical: If there exists a thirty­three ounce jar of Nutella, do we really have free will? I experienced a harsh physics lesson while observing a shopper who had no evident familiarity of inertia’s workings. With a cart filled to overflowing, she made her way towards the sloped exit, continuing to push and push while steadily losing control until the cart escaped her and went crashing into a concrete column, 52” plasma screen TV and all. Purchasing the yuletide hickory smoked ham inevitably led to a conversation between my father and me about Andrew Jackson’s controversiality. There was no questioning Old Hickory’s dedication; he was steadfast in his beliefs and pursuits – qualities I am compelled to admire, yet his morals were crooked. We both found the ham to be more likeable–and tender.

I adopted my exploratory skills, fine tuned by Costco, towards my intellectual endeavors. Just as I sampled buffalo­chicken dip or chocolate truffles, I probed the realms of history, dance and biology, all in pursuit of the ideal cart–one overflowing with theoretical situations and notions both silly and serious. I sampled calculus, cross­country running, scientific research, all of which are now household favorites. With cart in hand, I do what scares me; I absorb the warehouse that is the world. Whether it be through attempting aerial yoga, learning how to chart blackbody radiation using astronomical software, or dancing in front of hundreds of people, I am compelled to try any activity that interests me in the slightest.

My intense desire to know, to explore beyond the bounds of rational thought; this is what defines me. Costco fuels my insatiability and cultivates curiosity within me at a cellular level. Encoded to immerse myself in the unknown, I find it difficult to complacently accept the “what”; I want to hunt for the “whys” and dissect the “hows”. In essence, I subsist on discovery.
