Common App Essay：运用蒙太奇风格写的文章，选取生活中的一些关键事件，将它们联系在一起，以展示我学习研究科学的意义，不仅是获取知识，更是为了分享更多。这篇文章我不是强调在数学/科学方面有多好，而是描述我致力于帮助其他人理解数学和科学知识。
This one kind of talked about the interdisciplinary approach Duke education took and kinda spoke to my status as a third culture child. Not anything particularly innovative but not anything mundane or repetitive either.
This one was all about my music. I figured that since I had spent so much time in my extracurriculars highlighting my passion for science, my LORs would definitely all mention my science I wanted to highlight that I wasn't just a nerd who studied textbooks nonstop. I told the story of how my experience playing music had allowed me to connect with Jazz Musicians completely in an improvised style the one year I was at Berkeley for the Summer.
Okay this might be controversial, but I actually did NOT talk about my own orientation. Since it asked "experiences with sexual orientation" I actually brought up my experiences of when I discriminated/attacked another person for their orientation. I wasn't trying to be particularly edgy or cool or trying to claim a sob story, but I was (and still am) reeling from a really bad break up and felt the need to get it out there: that I had been really mean to someone for being "asexual". I don't know if this helped me or harmed me, but I figured I would be really honest and tell them that I had made mistakes in my anger of attacking another person for being different.
化学老师推荐信（1-10评级）：9/10 I was one of the very few juniors taking AP Chemistry at my school on top of that I always loved learning about chemistry. Even though I didn't end up getting a 5 on the AP exam I still think she was a huge advocate for me and really tried to understand me as a person when writing my letter of recommendation. She asked in particular about things I did outside of academics solely for fun and we started talking about cooking shows (which I hadn't known beforehand she enjoyed watching as well).
英文老师推荐信（1-10评级）：9.5/10 He was one of those teachers that you couldn't always tell what he thought of you but you knew that if he wrote you a LOR and he liked you it would be damn good. I only later found out (since he was fired over a scandal at our school) that he actually observed me in the classroom and spoke to my strengths as a natural leader that I hadn't really discussed with other teachers and only mentioned in my essay. I think this may have been super beneficial as now you had a teacher backing up the claims I made in my personal statement.
申请顾问推荐信（1-10评级）：6.5/10 He knew me, but I definitely was not the closest to him, he knew I was a very strong science student and that I participated in a lot of community service centered around that science aspect but beyond that I was never the type to visit his office on a daily basis or talk for great lengths of time on subjects not directly pertinent to the college search/application process. Tl;dr he knew me as a student but not a person.
面试情况（1-10评级）：5/10 I think the interviewer liked me but it was a very shady interview since it was in his office in the East part of Shanghai and there were a few other applicants there which he initially started us all off with a group interview.
认为自己被录取原因：Honestly, I would say it was plain honesty and discussion of my skills as soft skills rather than as a hard achievement.
建议评价：I think that while it's very tempting in the college application process to try and hide mistakes you made in the past, or to write yourself as a super kind/smart/caring whatever person, admission officers aren't stupid and probably have enough experience to see through some "BS" so I would say the best approach (at least it worked for me) is to be really honest about everything and try to portray yourself as a normal human being with unique characteristics rather than an altruistic hero (particularly if you normally aren't one).
