Tufts Essay Set

序:Tufts以其非常多而且又变态的essay闻名…….由于我分低,所以就专门挑这种学校,以求弥补其他的劣势….这不失为一个策略哈哈。

I.
REQUIRED SHORT ANSWER (50 words)
Which aspects of Tufts' curriculum or undergraduate experience prompt yourapplication? In short: ''Why Tufts?''

I was surprised when I saw Tufts’ unconventional essay questions. I thought: Wow, is this college application? I must write it, no matter what! Through such questions, I can feel the open-minded and creative atmospheres of the school, which were the most important qualities in my mind. Later, I learned the international perspective and “embracing minds” statement of Tufts. I felt lucky that my intuition had led me to a right decision.

II.
REQUIRED SHORT ESSAYS (200words)

1. There is a Quaker saying: ''Let yourlife speak.'' Describe the environment in which you were raised--your family,home, neighborhood or community--and how it influenced the person you aretoday.

My father loves walking. He will cross each city he goes to “from this side of the map to that side”. As a result, I was also taken out to walk since very young and I inherited this tradition. Every day when I go back home from school I will try to change my way. The 15-minute bike ride is pleasant for me, for I can always encounter fresh pictures.

Later, I realized that my father is also a walker in life. His love of walking to the unknown shows his will of exploring and making progress. In 2000, father left Lanzhou where I was born, a city in northwestern inland China, for the capital Beijing. After two years of hard work, our families all settled down there and led a happy life.

Such tradition influenced me. I started from an ordinary elementary school, through a fairly good middle school in my junior years, and got into one of the few best high schools in Beijing two years ago. It was not until then that I discovered that my classmates had always been in the best schools in their life. However, I felt that my life is more exciting. From my experiences, I believe that nothing will matter too much. From a life-long perspective, the ups and downs now are all temporary. The important thing is not where I am now, but where I am going to.

2.Self-identity and personal expression take many forms. For example, music,clothing, politics, extracurricular interests, and ethnicity can each be adefining attribute. Do you surf or tinker? Are you a vegetarian poet who lovesAyn Rand? Do you prefer YouTube or test tubes? Are you preppie or Goth? Use therichness of your life to give us insight: what voice will you add to the Class of 2014?

Soccer is more than a sport for me. It’s a lifestyle. Speed, patience and seizing the opportunity, the qualities essential for a striker, teach me how to do well on the field and in life.

I like sprinting on the field with high speed. In soccer, speed is the symbol of youth. It means unstoppable enthusiasm and passion of creating. What I fear most is not failure, but the lost of courage to dream and strive. Though I am not the most brilliant student now, I have always been making progress.

I also practice shooting a lot. The situation in a game is constantly changing, but what I need to do is simple: focus on the ball, keep calm, in a practical way, and score. I always tell myself: Be patient, I need only one opportunity. Watching carefully works more than running crazily because a good striker plays with brain, not muscle. Things are similar in life: making the right decision at an important moment can change a lot. If I cannot judge my situation and chance accurately, all my hard work will be fruitless.

Maybe I won't be a professional player, but I hope to work like a striker in life. In this life-long game, the winner is not always the team which scores first, but the team which can adjust itself and keep fighting till the end. I hope that thirty years later, when I am too old to speed up on the field, I can still have the energy and passion of a young player, stay calm and efficient, and shoot accurately.

Optional Essay

Tufts developsleaders who will address the intellectual and social challenges of the newcentury. Since critical thinking, creativity, practicality and wisdom are fourelements of successful leadership, the following topics offer you anopportunity to illustrate these various characteristics. We invite you tochoose one and prepare an essay of 250-400 words. (And it really is optional!)


7. Write a short story using one of the following titles:

a. House of Cards
b. The Poor Sport
c. Drama at the Prom
d. Election Night 2044
e. The Getaway

The Getaway

Professor Feinstein picked up the robot which fell into his cell and heard the voice of the chief spy of Juri Intellectual Agency. "Professor, our country needs you to fix the GMM. We are ready to rescue you. Go out from room No. 5, and then No. 24. The gate code has been deciphered by our engineers. Please be quick and you have only ten minutes."

Feinstein stood up. He had been trapped in the Magogian prison for a month. After the war between Juri and Magog had begun, this medical expert and biologist led the project to build Gene Mutation Machine (GMM) and was captured by Magogian spies some time ago. He walked out of the cell quickly. No.5, No.24, No.17…All was going well. Suddenly, he heard someone shouting “Doctor! Doctor! Are there doctors here?” Then, a man came to him, seeing his white gown. “Are you a doctor? My friend just had a heart attack and he needs……”

“I am sorry, but……” He walked ahead before the man to finished speaking. “Beep, Beep.” He had only seven minutes to go. He quickened his steps.

“Ouch!” it was the patient’s cry.
A chill came over Feinstein. “I am a doctor.” He could not help looking back. “Beep, Beep.” Five minutes left. The red light on it began to flash. “No, I couldn’t. No. No.” He plugged his ear with his finger and moved.

However, he still heard it again. The scream penetrated his ear and stabbed his heart. He took a deep breath. It was so hot that he took off his white gown: he could not stand looking at it, which reminded him of his doctor occupation repetitively. Bear in mind that national loyalty was supreme, he managed to rush out, with the cry echoed and echoed in his mind.

Two months after the getaway.

Feinstein now lived in a villa in Crimea. His GMM killed 100000 soldiers; Magog was inclined to surrender. The only problem he had was continuous nightmare. In his dream he always met the man who asked him to save his friend that day. Today, he was so nervous after getting up that he decided to take a walk to relax.

He was not ashamed at first because of his glorious national mission. However, when he had finished the mission, a sense of failure enthralled him. “What I have done? I am a medical student, but I ignored a dying patient and went for a machine to kill people!” He remembered his life when he graduated 40 years ago as a young doctor; received the Nobel Prize 15 years ago because of his study of gene technology; and became a member of Yuri’s Top Secretive Project after the war had begun. “I am doctor or a citizen? A doctor gave up his vocation to study a killing machine? What did I get from the forty years of work? Not as good as forty years ago, knowing nothing!” He began to doubt about his entire career and the use of technology.

Back home, his wife came and said, “Looked at this! An official just sent it here.”
“President’s Medal!” He didn’t know what to say. Instead, he picked up the newspaper. “The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences decided to withdraw Joseph Feinstein’s Nobel Price Medal for humanitarian concern. The academy condemned Feinstein’s engagement in weapons of mass destruction.” He asked, “Why don’t you tell me this?”

“No. No. The president had just called us. He reassured you that you needn’t care about that: you are forever hero of our country. He said that the Nobel Committee has become the tool of some political groups, and that it often awards the prize to someone who never deserves it because of political benefit instead of contribution to humans.”

Feinstein had no expression. He was just confused: “Good news or bad news? Am I a failed doctor or a national hero? Why do they say that Nobel Prize, for which I devoted my life and won, is politicized?” These difficult questions became another prison for the poor old scientist. The only thing he knew was that he was going to have nightmare again tonight: this time, he couldn’t get away.

Tufts的申请上我真是彻底的赌了。每篇都超字,数目不等……尤其最后一篇,让写400,我写了骇人的700…感谢AO耐着性子把这些看完了….我觉得还是小心的好……当然,如果纯粹抱着赌一把的心态,就无所谓了。
