德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo Y.和Joe Z. 都是苏州德威国际高中13年级学生,他们一个热爱商科,一个热爱人文社科,都收获了来自埃默里大学的固定提前录取(ED offer)。ED是Early Decision的英文缩写,是一种申请美国大学的方式,顾名思义是指学校早决定录取。和普通申请不同的是,一个学生只能选择一所学校进行ED申请,如果被录取了则只能接受offer进入该校学习,并撤回已经向其他学校投出的申请。所以,学生选择申请ED的学校往往是自己的第一选择。

# 埃默里大学

埃默里大学(Emory University),建于1836年,世界顶尖私立研究型大学,美国大学协会成员,是美国小班制本科精英教育代表院校之一,美国“新常春藤”名校之一,曾产出24名罗德学者 ,被誉为“南方哈佛”。埃默里本科录取竞争十分激烈,今年其ED1的申请量破了其历年来申请量的纪录。由于埃默里大学只有13%的学生是国际学生,我们的学生能收获该校的录取尤其令人振奋! 学校师生比例高达1:7,教授给予学生极多的关注与交流,美国前总统卡特为本校荣誉教授,每年都演讲并亲自答新生问。2021 US News Ranking中,埃默里大学排名第21位。

下面让我们一起来了解一下他们的成长故事吧!

Q1

为什么选择埃默里大学呢?

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo说他之所以选择埃默里大学是因为在之前参加该校夏校时被其精致的校园环境以及优美的建筑风格所吸引,夏校时的小班教学让他跟教授有更多的交流机会,这些让他锁定了埃默里大学。Joe选择该校是看重该校卓越的学术成绩以及小班制教学,另外两个原因是出于自己的个人爱好。学校位于Atlanta, 是NBA老鹰队所在的地方,作为老鹰队的球迷,Joe很向往这座城市。另外,通过在该校就读的学长了解到该校的食堂有华人厨师,做的红烧肉非常好吃,这也是吸引他的一个原因。在申请阶段,升学指导老师也给了他们很多的帮助。Leo的升学指导老师是Ms. Shi,老师会帮助他把自己的故事写得更生动有趣;Joe的升学指导老师是Ms. Flood,老师会在文书的语法和结构上给他提很多意见和建议。

Q2

在德威就读是一种怎样的体验呢?

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo最喜欢的是经济学课,因为这门学科与生活息息相关,可以让他将社会实际情况与学科理论知识结合。他从10年级就开始学习这门课程,打下来坚实的基础。Joe最喜欢的是心理学课,他觉得心理学非常实用,学好了既可以更好地认识自己帮助自己,又可以帮助别人。他在低年级时上的Mr. Tulesi的课,老师以课本为主进行教学,并运用很多实例进行讲解,老师甚至会通过自己表演出特定症状来生动地展示心理学现象。高年级时Joe上的是Ms. Allison的课,这位老师非常注重课外拓展,会用到很多案例进行教学,有时,美剧《生活大爆炸》也会成为老师分析的案例。

Q3

联课活动让学生发现自己的热情

Leo和Joe在学校都参加了很多联课活动,在逐渐地探索和发现自己的兴趣和热情的过程中,他们也坚持做了自己真正喜爱的事情。Leo参加了4年的飞盘社团,这项运动看似简单,其实很不容易。虽然把飞盘扔出去很简单,但是要扔到特定的区域并得分就很难了。该运动既锻炼了学生的耐心也培养了他们的团队合作精神。Joe参加了4年的花道社,并且是社长。刚开始加入该社团是因为觉得插花很新奇,在开始学习插花后发现这是一个很修身养性的事情,把不同的鲜花通过有序的排列制作成一个艺术品是一个很有意思的过程。在他的申请文书中他也提到了自己对花道的喜爱以及由此产生的性别刻板印象问题的讨论。许多人可能认为插花应该是女生做的事情,但是Joe不希望被刻板印象所束缚,坚持做自己热爱的事情。

Q4

参加大学夏校项目确定未来的专业方向

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo参加了耶鲁大学社会关系专业的夏校以及埃默里大学微观经济学夏校。耶鲁大学的夏校是在线课程的形式,老师会从非常客观的角度对社会问题进行分析,很多观点跟主流媒体很不一样,让他养成了独立思考并客观看待问题的习惯。埃默里大学的微观经济学夏校让他真正坚定了申请该大学的想法,学校小班制教学的方式让学生们有更多时间与教授交流。Joe参加了波士顿大学的心理学原理的夏校,当时的老师是临床心理学专家,教授了许多人体结构的知识,丰富了Joe在心理学方面的知识,让他对这门学科更加着迷。

Q5

选择德威=更多自主权+多元化的校园生活

Joe来自昆山的一所公办学校,因为想出国,当时听初中同学推荐过德威,并且他很看重可以参加丰富多彩课外活动的校园文化,所以选择了德威。Leo来自上海的一所公办学校,他是一个非常有主见的学生,喜欢给学生有自主权的校园环境,这与德威的以学生优先的价值观不谋而合。另外,德威师生关系不像上下级关系,而更像一种平等的关系,老师给予学生足够的尊重,这让学生们更有信心,并能自主寻求自己所热爱的事情。这样的环境让Leo充分发挥自己的潜能,并在商赛中获奖:他的小组在Ambix商赛中获得了最有价值公司的奖项,他当时负责的是公司的广告宣传并进行了数据反馈。

Q6

先紧后松的家庭教育培养出自律的习惯

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

从公办学校来到苏州德威国际高中,Joe和Leo都因为自律的好习惯很快适应了德威的环境,他们深知先把学习这门主业做好,然后再去追求自己热爱的事情。这样的好习惯得益于他们父母的教育。在高中之前,他们的父母都管得比较严,让他们养成了良好的习惯。例如,一定要先完成作业才能去做别的事情,在学习上不要一知半解,不懂的一定要问老师。这样看似老生常谈的习惯如果能日复一日,年复一年地坚持下来是能取得惊人的效果的,他们收获的埃默里大学固定提前录取就是最好的证明。

Q7

给低年级学生的建议

a. 时间管理和自我管理能力都很重要,

b. 遇到任何困难要敢于与老师交流,老师们都非常愿意帮助学生,

c. 选课时一定选自己喜欢的课程,早一点定下自己的专业

下面让我们一起来回顾一下上一场开放日的精彩瞬间吧!

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo Y. and Joe Z. are both Year 13 students at Dulwich International High School Suzhou. One of them loves business and the other loves humanities and social sciences. They both received an ED offer from Emory University. ED is the English abbreviation for Early Decision. It is a way to apply to American universities. As the name suggests, it means that the school decides to admit early. Different from ordinary applications, a student can only choose one school to apply for ED. If admitted, they can only accept an offer from that school and must withdraw any applications that have already been submitted to any other schools. Therefore, the school that students choose to apply for ED is often their first choice.

# Emory University

Emory University, founded in 1836, is one of the world’s top private research universities and a member of the American Association of Universities. It is one of the representative universities for small-class undergraduate elite education in the United States and one of the prestigious "New Ivy League" universities in the United States. It has produced 24 Rhodes scholars and is known as the "Harvard of the South". Competition is fierce for Emory's undergraduate admissions, and its ED1 application volume this year has broken its historical record. Since only 13% of Emory University's students are international students, it is especially exciting for our students to receive admissions to this school! The teacher-student ratio of the school is as high as 1:7, and the professors have given students a lot of attention and exchanges. Former US President Carter is an honorary professor of the school. In the 2021 US News Ranking, Emory University ranked 21st.

Let’s take a look at their story of growth…

Q1

Why choose Emory University?

Leo said that he chose Emory University because he was attracted by its exquisite campus environment and its beautiful architectural style, when he attended a summer school at Emory. The small class sizes of the teaching at the summer school gave him more opportunities to communicate with his professors. Joe chose this school because of its excellent academic performance and small class teaching. The other two reasons are for his personal hobbies. The school is in Atlanta, where the NBA Hawks are based. As a fan of the Hawks, Joe has always longed to visit their city. In addition, as previous graduates of Dulwich who studied at the school soon discovered, there are Chinese chefs in the school’s canteen! The braised pork they make is delicious, which also attracted him! During the application stage, our college counselors gave him a lot of help. Leo’s college counselor is Ms. Shi, who helped him write a more vivid and engaging story. Joe’s college counselor is Ms. Flood, who gave him many suggestions on the grammar and structure of the document.

Q2

What’s it like studying at Dulwich?

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo's favorite class is economics, because this subject is closely related to life, allowing him to combine actual situations in society with the theoretical knowledge of the subject. He has been studying economics since the 10th grade and has laid a solid foundation. Joe's favorite is the psychology class. He thinks that psychology is very practical. After learning it, you can understand yourself better and help yourself and others. In Mr. Tulesi's class when he was in the lower grades, the teacher used textbooks as the main teaching method and used many examples to explain. The teacher even vividly demonstrated psychological phenomena by demonstrating specific symptoms himself. In his senior year, Joe attended Ms. Allison's class. This teacher paid great attention to extracurricular development and used many cases for teaching. Sometimes, the American drama "The Big Bang Theory" would also become be analyzed by the teacher.

Q3

Co-curricular activities allow students to discover their passion

Leo and Joe have participated in various co-curricular activities, and in the process of exploring their passion and interests, they gradually focused on things they truly love. Leo has participated in the Frisbee club for 4 years. This sport seems simple, but it is not easy. Although throwing a frisbee is easy, it is difficult to throw a frisbee into a specific area and score. This doesn’t just exercise the patience of students, but also cultivates their team spirit. Joe has participated in the Ikebana Club for 4 years and is the leader now. He first joined the club because he felt that flower arranging was very novel. After he started learning flower arranging, he found that it is a very self-cultivating thing to do. It is a very interesting process to make different flowers into a work of art through an orderly arrangement. In his application essay, he also mentioned his love for ikebana and the discussion of gender stereotypes arising from it. Many people may think that flower arrangement should be something only girls do, but Joe does not wish to be bound by stereotypes and insists on doing what he loves!

Q4

Attending summer schools helps them determine their future major

德威两名学子收获埃默里大学早录取|Leo Y. and Joe Z. Received ED Offers from Emory

Leo attended the Summer School of Social Relations at Yale University and the Summer School of Microeconomics at Emory University. The summer school at Yale University is taught online. Teachers will analyze social issues from a very objective perspective. Many viewpoints are very different from mainstream media, allowing him to develop the habit of thinking independently and looking at issues objectively. The summer school of microeconomics at Emory University firmed up his idea of applying to the university. The school's small class teaching method allowed students to have more time to communicate with professors. Joe attended a summer school at Boston University in the Principles of Psychology. The teacher was a clinical psychology expert. He taught about human structure, enriched Joe's knowledge in psychology, and made him even more fascinated by this subject.

Q5

Choosing Dulwich = More autonomy + Diversified campus life

Joe came from a public school in Kunshan. Because he wanted to go abroad, he heard junior high school students recommend Dulwich. He valued the campus culture where he could participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, so he chose Dulwich. Leo comes from a public school in Shanghai. He is a student who really knows his own mind. He prefers a school environment that gives students autonomy, which coincides with The Dulwich Value: “Students come first”. Dulwich’s teacher-student relationship is not superior-subordinate. It is much more equal. Teachers give students enough respect, which makes students more confident and able to independently seek what they love. Such an environment allowed Leo to give full play to his potential and win awards in business competitions: his team won the most valuable company award in the Ambix business competition, and he was responsible for the company's advertising and data feedback.

Q6

A family education that cultivates the habit of self-discipline

From a public school to Dulwich, Joe and Leo quickly adapted to Dulwich’s environment because of their good habits of self-discipline. They knew that they should do well in learning first, and then pursue what they love. These good habits were instilled by their parents. Before high school, their parents were stricter, allowing them to develop good habits. For example, you must finish your homework before you can do other things. Always ask the teacher if you don’t understand anything, never leave anything behind. This seemingly clichéd habit can achieve amazing results if you persist with it day after day and year after year. Their acceptance into Emory University is the best proof!

Q7

Advice for younger students

a. The Habits of Self Discipline and skill of Time management are crucial.

b. If you encounter any difficulties, don’t be afraid of communicating with teachers. Teachers are very willing to help students.

c. When choosing a course, you must follow your passion and decide your major as early as possible!
