不可不知的ACT面试“四不原则”

辛苦准备了面试,练习了各种可能的问题,但朗思提醒广大考生要避免画蛇添足。

1. 除非面试官主动提起,不然不要问和学校、申请无关的问题,像“你对中国经济的看法”,it is totally irrelevant to the college and the interview ;

2. 不要为了显逼格问一些非面试官专业领域的问题;

3. 不要问挑战面试官权威的问题;

4. 不要问有关学校负面消息的问题。

以下是朗思准备的适用于所有学校的问题,供参考:
a) How did the school change you?

b) Why did you apply to this school? Is it the same as what you expected?

c) Ask something about international student policy/ treatment.

d) Anything you wish you had known when you were a freshman/ applicant? Any recommendations for me?

e) Your typical day?

f) Questions related to school traditions

提问是讲究技巧的。不论是面试进行中的问题,还是最后环节的提问,都一定具备两个特质。第一,要具象具体,不虚无缥缈,不难回答,像to what extend do students work hard in the university这种因人而异模棱两可的就没有必要问了;第二,要开放式问题,不要yes no 完就结束了。提问不是通过难倒面试官来展现你的智商,而是用来展现你对学校的热情和好奇心,以及你的个人特质、关注点、性格。
