那么今天就让我们再来一起了解一个特殊的本科转学申请系统——UC系统即University of California本科转学的文书题目还有相应的案例分析。众所周知，UC系统的本科转学，都有一篇必答题的文书，剩下的需要在学校列举的7个题目中，自选3个题目完成。所以，每一个学生一共需要撰写4篇文书。那么在今天这篇文章中，我想和各位同学首先讨论这个必答题目，去分析这些题目咱们应该从哪些方面入手，以及结合真实的学生申请实战案例来进行点评。所以今天的文章主要涵盖了以下几个方面：
题目要求：Please describe how you have prepared for your intended major, including your readiness to succeed in your upper-division courses once you enroll at the university.
Describe, prepare for intended major, readiness, upper-division courses
Things to consider: How did your interest in your major develop? Do you have any experience related to your major outside the classroom — such as volunteer work, internships and employment, or participation in student organizations and activities? If you haven’t had experience in the field, consider including experience in the classroom. This may include working with faculty or doing research projects.
If you’re applying to multiple campuses with a different major at each campus, think about approaching the topic from a broader perspective, or find a common thread among the majors you’ve chosen.
The major I’m applying to is XXXXXX. During my first year in college, I was undecided about my major at first and didn’t know what I wanted to do. Then at a party, I was chatting with one of my seniors, who told me her major was XXXXX. She told me that she was majoring in XXXXXX, which is a very interesting and practical major. I had an epiphany. It just so happened that my father was a businessman, and he had taught me about business and economics since I was a child. I started to learn about the XXXXXX major, and was gradually attracted to it. After taking a few more classes, I not only got good grades, but also developed some out-of-the-box thinking and data analysis skills. I like such an enriching major. To train myself, I tried to get an internship XXXXXX this summer. During that time, I not only applied what I learned in the classroom to real life, but also practiced my communication skills with customers and cooperation with colleagues. I am more certain that this is the kind of job I want and this is the kind of major I want to study. My past good grades, my internship experience, and the awards I have received for group activities have given me the confidence that I can grow even more in the XXXXXXXX program.
Growing up in a family with parents work in business, I always have the feeling not to follow their path. Therefore, I chose XXXXXX at the XXXXXXX. However, gradually I noticed it was not what I expected. As the COVID-19 outbreak, many business fields were affected, however, some survived. This gave me the motivation and interest to learn about XXXXXXX because there was more than I could know.
Immersed in family’s inspiration, I was told that I needed to consider any market trend under economic conditions. Gradually, I grew interest in the stock market. As a result, I chose courses such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, data analysis and business core courses. The XXXXX course left me a deep impression, XXXXXXXX. Making data into numbers and tables lead to in-depth case analysis. Another XXXXX class helped me learn about the field in a broad aspect.
Outside the classroom, I actively fulfilled internship experience byXXXXXX. “XXXXXXXXXX” Through such experience, I established a strong sense and understanding of both numbers and regulations among the field, which affirmed my goal in learning Economics.
With such a determination in mind, I am clear about what I want to do. Having maintained a satisfying academic performance, enriched myself with internship experience, and received awards-the second place of the madden challenge which is sponsored by XXXXXX, from various activities that cultivate my abilities and confidence in preparing for the XXXXXXX major at UC.
My intended major is XXXX. When I first started at XXXXXX, I was majoring in XXXXX as a result of my solid foundation in XXXXXX, and going to explore it further. However, at the first quarter, I failed to register the courseXXXXX as the place is in short supply. Therefore, I have to take basic calculus course instead. Originally I also feel some regret, but I did not think of the study of math class, brought me a new idea.
Before the class, I am very confident about the math class as I have laid a good mathematical foundation in China. The math classes here, however, were completely different from the ones I had taken before. Compared to mountains of lectures and practices in Chinese math class, the class in XXXXX seems to be more optional and open-ended. In the lecture, Instead of lecture, the setting of Discussion section is brand-new for me. As implied by its name, we XXXXXXXX. When we have some problems, we are encouraged to discuss them with classmates to find out the solution, rather than ask TA directly.
What’s more, the setting of Office Hour is also a great idea. Students are allowed to “disturb” professor at a specific time for your any problem. And the most interesting thing is that there are other students who may have the same or different questions. If same, a little discussion might be able to solve problems for both of them. If different, other students can also listen to the professor and see if they can discover something new. Once I XXXXXXXXX. After that, I didn’t leave and sit down to see other students’ questions and try to solve them one by one. If something I can’t figure out, professor would explain it to all of us. Unconsciously, through other students’ questions, I have learned a lot of things that I do not understand.
XXXXXX or XXXXX, this is a question. I first chose XXXXXX at XXXXXX, however, due to lack of prerequisite courses, I took Calculus instead. I felt little regret but did not expect Calculus consolidated my knowledge, cultivated critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. Moreover, it helped me affirm my intention to study XXXXXXXX.
Having taken math courses, I expected it only consist of lectures and exam papers. However, things seem to be different in the U.S. So far, I have mastered professional knowledge within both Calculus and Statistics fields, including but not limited to XXXXXXXX. Within the classroom, motivation was driven through interaction with instructors. For instance, XXXXXX. During the discussion session, XXXXXXXXX.
Outside the classroom, the university encourages students to learn beyond lectures. Through office hours, I XXXXXXX. Previously, I thought XXXXXXXX. However, once I was queuing and noticed the student in front of me had the same question. I thought it might be helpful to ask what problems he encountered. Neither of us expected that we would have a heated discussion until the professor joined us. The Professor XXXXXXXX. I realized that XXXXXXXXX. After that, every time I encounter a problem, I discuss with others first and try different methods.
