收到拒信之后不愿碰触的回忆

Frustration Brought by Rejection


1月普通的一天,对于美达菲学子Henry却不是个值得高兴的日子,当日他收到来自Dream School曼彻斯特大学(2020 QS世界排名第27位)的拒信。要知道,为了进入这所大学,Henry已经准备了近三年的时间,他的情绪低落不知所措,随即这封邮件被转发给他的升学指导老师,同时也是Henry最信任的Sophia老师。收到拒信一般就意味着名校对学生关闭了大门,看似无法挽回的局势还会有转机吗?


It was a normal day in January for most but an unusual one for Henry, a student at MacDuffie, who had just received a rejection letter from his dream school – the University of Manchester (Ranked #27 on QS World Universities Ranking). It had been nearly three years since Henry had chosen it as his ideal undergraduate school. He felt frustrated. Had this amazing university closed its doors to him? However, his counselor, Sophia Zhu, was not ready to give up.



梦想开始的那一天

The Day When Dreams were Reborn


说起Henry的梦想,就要从2017年9月说起,那是他刚刚走入美达菲学校大门。犹记得当时他脸庞稚嫩,眼神显露些许羞涩却异常坚定,给Sophia留下了深刻印象。Henry是一位学习认真,执行力很强的学生,凭借其出色的表现一直保持着高GPA,而这也为他迈进名校打下了坚实的学术基础。我们知道除了平时学习成绩以外,对于国际申请者来说标化考试也是不可或缺的一环,早在准备之初,升学规划老师就为Henry详细安排了标化考试时间表,执行力超强的他针对于每一次安排都可以快速准确的予以反馈,保质保量完成配合,考出了较好的标化成绩。


In September of 2017, Henry enrolled in MacDuffie as a senior high school student. He often left a great impression on others with his shy but unwavering eyes. Henry was always a hardworking student with strong independent study skills. Due to his outstanding academic performance, he obtained a high GPA which laid the solid academic foundations to be accepted by good universities. He also worked hard to prepare for his standardized tests. At the very beginning of this preparation, his counselor created a detailed timetable for taking these tests. No surprise, he stuck to the plan and finished. One step at a time.  


目标名校,美达菲给你不一样的指引

MacDuffie Gives Customized Guidance

由于对足球的狂热,英国一直是学生心中的的理想留学国,而曼彻斯特大学则成为学生和家长心中的Dream School,对Henry而言更是如此。设定目标后,美达菲国际教育不仅为学生提供与美国美达菲教育理念一脉相承且极具挑战性的学术课程,更关注学生的综合发展,为学生提供了包含领导力,艺术、体育、科研实践,社区服务等广泛课外项目,而这也与各大顶尖大学向来青睐具备综合素质申请者的录取要求不谋而合。


As a huge fan of football (or soccer in the US), the UK became Henry’s ideal country to study in and the University of Manchester became the dream school for him and his family. MacDuffie has an educational philosophy of providing both excellent academic education alongside the cultivation of other interests. It offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities include leadership, arts, sports, science fairs, and community service. These same activities happen to be in line with the admission requirements of many top universities.


在整个本科申请规划的过程中,美达菲升学指导团队为Henry提供了多方面的指导建议。在美达菲指导团队的建议下,Henry在校期间积极参与了美达菲提供给学生们的丰富的社团活动以及包括海外夏校在内的校外活动,借以丰富自己的软实力。近三年的尝试和提升,美达菲美高教育体制促使学生发生了翻天覆地的变化,使他愈加成熟,自信,独立,积极,同时对未来目标坚定不移。


The planning and development of Henry at MacDuffie was a long and sometimes arduous process. Counselors guided him to become active not only in on-campus activities but also various overseas summer programs. With the guidance of MacDuffie teachers and staff over almost three years, Henry became a mature, confident, independent, and positive young man who holds a firm belief in his future goals.


拒信不是终点,而是试金石

Rejection is Not an End but a Stepping Stone


万事俱备,我们和Henry一起向曼大发起了进攻。也许是应了那句“好事多磨”——1月中旬曼大的拒信不期而至。我们经验丰富的申请老师Sophia精准判定并坚信我们的学生的综合素质是值得这所名校青睐的,因此拒信并不是梦想的终点。


经过与校方的反复沟通,强调我们学生的优秀,重审美达菲美国课程体制对于学生全方位的培养以及整体提升,耗时一个月的等待,终于就在今天我们争回了这一枚差点失落的录取,为学生叩开这所世界三十强名校的大门。


家长的笑容和声声感谢,让每一位美达菲老师觉得一切都值得。这一份录取也让我们看到了英国顶级高校对美达菲教学实力的高度认可,也为我们验证了美高课程的优势不仅仅针对美本体系,同样也为其他教育强国所青睐。


As the old saying goes, “The road to happiness is strewn with setbacks.” In mid-January, when Henry received his rejection letter, our experienced counselor Sophia insisted on getting an offer and that rejection is not the end.

With such confidence, she sent her first appeal letter, then the second, the third, and so on, each time insisting on the excellence of MacDuffie students. One-month’s effort was rewarded with an offer that opened the door into a top university for our student.

The smile on Henry and his parents’ faces and the gratitude they sincerely expressed made everything worthwhile. This offer is also a symbol of high recognition that top universities outside America give to MacDuffie’s educational quality and curriculum.


写在最后

In the end

就像疫情带来的灰暗不会让我们丧失希望,我们用努力写了大大的坚持,而我们的坚持得以为我们的学生圆梦。

最后的最后,再次为我们的Henry送上诚挚的祝福,愿他未来求学路继续精彩!!!


The current epidemic cannot take away our hope and persistence to make our dreams come true.

Finally, everyone at MacDuffie sends their best wishes to Henry. May you continue your excellence in this next step of your life’s journey.
