 申请文书写作思路 

 

1、选择最适合你的主题

 

      在第一篇必选短文中,有七个主题可供选择。请仔细阅读每个主题,明确每个主题的含义,并选择那个你真正有故事与招生官分享的主题。

 

      请记住,这七个主题没有好坏之分,招生官们乐意看到来自每个主题的内容,我们最期待看到的是你关于所选择主题的见解,你的经历以及从这些经历中所展现的你的个人特质。

 

2、精心组织文书结构

 

       在申请系统中,每篇申请文书都有字数上的限制,这对申请文书的结构组织提出了更高的要求。

 

       首先,你需要明确每篇申请文书的主题和你想要传递给招生官的主要信息。明确你想要通过这篇文书展现你哪方面的能力以及素质:是解决问题的能力,你的创造力,或是你的领导力?

       其次,你需要找到具体有力的事例来向招生官证明它们。可以是你的个人经历,也可以是来自他人的评价。

       接下来,请你为所举事例做出总结,向招生官们说明你写下这些事例的原因。

       最后,你可以回过头来仔细阅读你的文章,看看每段的字数是否合适,并进行适当的删减和替换。

 

 

3、有针对性地讲故事

 

       招生官们并不认识你,而你的申请文书是招生官认识并了解你的重要途径。因此你的申请文书需要包含鲜活具体的细节以打动像招生官这样的陌生人,给招生官留下关于你的深刻印象。在阅读之后,招生官应该能够回忆起文书中几件关于你的事情。

       小编建议在完成写作之后,可以将文书初稿拿给你的父母、好朋友们看,并接受他人提出的中肯建议。

 

4、表达上要做到准确而清楚

 

      不需要刻意使用华丽的辞藻,如果你使用同义词替换以期在文章中使用更高级的词汇,你需要确保这些词语是自然而准确地符合句意的。对于句型而言也是同样的道理,也不需要刻意使用复杂句型。请确保你的表达不会产生歧义。

 

      使用更少的词语去表达你想要表达的内容。这样做不仅仅能够帮你节省字数,更能够展现出你组织语言的能力。此外,请找到你所陈述内容的内在联系并合理地将它们串联,这是展现你语言组织能力的另一个重要方面,同时它会使得你的申请文书更具有说服力。
