进入12月以来，伴随着各大院校早申录取放榜，美达菲也接连收到喜讯，成功斩获多枚世界名校Offer，布朗大学、塔夫茨大学、瑞士洛桑酒店管理学院、伯克利音乐学院、加州艺术学院、纽约视觉艺术学院、萨凡纳艺术学院等**院校录取成果纷纷收入囊中，Going"from good to great" 美达菲学子们的**之路从这里开始也从这里出发！Since the beginning of December, with the universities apply early for admission, MacDuffie School has also received a series of good news, successfully won a number of offers from prestigious universities in the world, Brown University, Tufts University, The Hospitality Management Studies in Lausanne, Berklee College of Music, California Institute of the Arts, New York School of Visual Arts, New York, Savannah College of the Arts and other top colleges admission results in succession, Going "from good to great" Students' excellence starts from here!
We have interviewed Young and Rebecca from Grade 12 of MacDuffie School in Tianjin to talk about their experience and advice on early application, in order to inspire more students who have similar needs for further study.
伯克利音乐学院(Berklee)成立于 1945 年，一直是当代音乐领域最杰出的学院之一,对于很多乐手来说真的是梦寐以求的地方，同时也是培养众多**音乐校友、乐曲专家的摇篮，目前全球的录取率在30%左右。伯克利致力于挖掘更多音乐与应用学科交叉的创新型音乐相关专业。
This is the second article reported by Tianjin MacDuffie official account about Rong Yiyang. After his appearance in the ASDAN All-Star Game, he successfully won the early offer from EHL with excellent results, fully demonstrating his extraordinary talent in business management.
Exploration and determination have always been his two key words
Last semester, I participated in the Training program of ASDAN Hotel Management. During the program, I was fortunate to have a preliminary contact with the senior students in Lausanne. During the exchange, I had a certain understanding of the hotel management industry, and then developed a strong interest in it.
在这个学期，学校又组织了美达菲海外大学巡展，巡展中我和EHL的招生官有了面对面交流的机会，我对EHL和酒店管理专业有了进一步的了解，这就更加坚定了我投EHL的决心。In this semester, the school also organized MacDuffie overseas university tour, during which I had a face-to-face communication with the admissions officer of EHL, and I had a further understanding of EHL and hotel management, which strengthened my determination to apply for EHL.
顺利的完成早申让我意识到早规划 、多探索、定目标的重要性。The successful completion of the early application made me realize the importance of early planning, more exploration and setting goals.
对美达菲未来的学弟学妹，我想说：一定要提前做好自己的学业规划，要提前摸索，不要等到申请的时候再定方向就比较晚了。在十一年级上学期前拿下语言类考试，我的雅思成绩就是7分，这样会省去很多的麻烦，后面主攻AP、SAT等等，把学习的压力摊开，合理分布在高中的阶段。To the future students of MacDuffie, I would like to say: be sure to make their own academic planning in advance, to explore in advance, do not wait until the application time to determine the direction is relatively late. When I took the language test in the first semester of grade 11, My IELTS was 7, which would save a lot of trouble. In the future, I would focus on AP, SAT and so on, spreading out the learning pressure and reasonably distributing it in high school.
You love it, you stick with it
和Young的沉稳不同，辜泊嘉可是校园社团活动中的“多面手”，从主持、主唱到键盘手、小提琴、吉他，只要是和文艺相关的活动都能见到她的身影。Different from Young's calm, Gu Bojia is a "versatile" in campus club activities, from host and vocalist to keyboardist, violin and guitar, as long as she can be seen in music-related activities. The road to excellence begins here
I learn the violin from the age of 3, studying classical piano when I am 5 years old, and gradually learned guitar musical instrument, such as the leading music this way study starts from the eighth grade a chance to let I found that music can cure a person, not only can cure me, oneself also can heal others so I want to help more people through music, I also hope that more and more people can know more about the music field and the music industry.
Whether you choose to study abroad or in China, follow your own heart before making a choice, you need to choose one which you really like and you are willing to make efforts on it in long-term, and as an art student, honestly, no matter what major you learn, art or others, there is no short cut to it. Every road requires constant persistence to work hard to get what you want. In short, you must choose what you love and stick to it. Come on!
——辜泊嘉 Gu BoJia
According to Wendy, a teacher at Tianjin MacDuffie that excellent academic performance is closely related to both strong personal strengths and the continuous improvement of academic background. 美达菲的留学规划首要是尊重孩子们的原兴趣，在课程选择、标化考试的规划、软实力背景的提升上都需要按部就班分别发力。Young和Rebecca在申请材料中展现出来了高度的一致性，源于他对自我清晰而准确的认知，也源于美达菲一直致力于为学生打造的多元化学习环境，在美达菲学生能够享受到小班化的教学、丰富的课外活动、纯正的艺术熏陶、个性化的学习、丰富的校园赛事活动以及领导力的培训。美达菲一直秉承集体、正直、尊重、创造力、领导力、**的核心价值观，培养了学生良好的思维习惯与高尚的道德情操，这可能是他们能打动招生官从而脱颖而出的原因之一。
MacDuffie's overseas study plan mainly respects the original interests of children, and it needs to make efforts in course selection, standardized examination planning and soft power background improvement step by step. The high degree of consistency between Young and Rebecca in his application materials stems from his clear and accurate understanding of himself and the diverse learning environment that MacDuffie has been committed to creating for students. In MacDuffie, students can enjoy small-class teaching, rich extracurricular activities, pure artistic edification, personalized learning, rich campus events and leadership training. MacDuffie has been adhering to the core values: community, integrity, respect, creativity, leadership, excellence. That may be one of the reasons he was able to impress admissions officers and stand out. 每一丝云淡风轻的背后都有人拼尽全力，希望未来的美达菲学子都可以坚持自己的梦想，成为更好的自己！**之路，从美达菲开始！
No pains, no gains, may all MacDuffie students can adhere to their dreams and become better themselves! The Road to Excellence Starts from Here ！
