  在大学申请过程中最常见的10大错误。大家谨记并引以为戒!

  1. 拼写错误和语法错误

  This is a big pet peeve of admissions people. Misspellings on something as important as the application shows that either you don't care or you aren't good at spelling. Some students even misspell their intended major. But don't stop with a spell check. Proofread for grammatical errors, too.

  这是招生老师最不能忍受的事情。有些学生甚至拼错了他们的专业。请一定要检查拼写同时校对语法错误。

  2. 在线申请,但实际上申请没有提交

  If you apply online, you should receive confirmation that the college or university received it. Confirmation could be an email message, a Web page response or a credit card receipt. Follow through and make sure that your application has been received.

  如果在线申请,你应该会收到学校发出的收到确认。确认可以是电子邮件,网页或信用卡收据。请确认申请已被大学收到。

  3. 忘记签名

  Make sure you sign and date the form. Often students overlook that part of the form if it's on the back. Check that all spaces are completed.

  确认是否在申请表中签名并注明日期。通常,如果在后面学生经常会忽视这部分表格。检查所有空格是否完成。

  4. 不要逐字阅读

  For example, if the form asks what County you live in, don't misread it as Country and write United States.

  例如,如果表格询问你住在哪个县,不要误读为国家,写成美国。

  5. 列出课外活动

  Those that make the list include sports, the arts, formal organizations and volunteer work. Talking on the phone and hanging out with friends don't make the cut. Make sure your activity information is accurate. Colleges may check with your high school.

  包括体育,艺术,正规组织和志愿者工作。不要忽略掉在电话里和朋友聊天或者出行的部分。确保你提供的课外活动信息的准确性。大学可能会和你的高中确认。

  6. 让顾问知道你申请的学校

  Let your counselor know which colleges you're applying to, and ask him or her to review your high school transcript before sending it to colleges. Sometimes transcripts have errors.

  请让顾问老师知道你正申请哪些大学,因为需要请他(她)在发送给大学之前检查一下成绩单以免有误。

  7. 书写潦草

  First impressions count, so take your time and use your best handwriting. It will make a better impression.

  书写是大学录取老师对你的第一印象,所以必须书写工整。这样会给录取老师留下好印象。

  8. 使用不专业的邮箱地址

  Select a professional email address. Keep your fun address for friends, but select an address using your name for college admissions.

  挑选一个专业的邮箱,并建一个以你名字为申请接收人的邮箱地址。

  9. 没有定期检查您的电子邮件

  If you've given an email address, the college will use it. You don't want to miss out on anything because you didn't read your email.

  如果像大学提供了电子邮件地址,大学将会使用它。不要因为没有定期查看邮箱而错过重要信息。

  10. 让父母帮助完成申请

  Admissions people know if your parents help, whether you have two different styles of handwriting or your admissions essay sounds more like a 45-year-old than a 17-year-old. It's fine to get advice, but do the work yourself.

  招生人员会知道父母的帮助,通过手写风格或者一个17岁的申请人的申请信的口吻像一个45岁的长者。得到父母的建议是好的,但请自己完成。
