对于大部分同学来说,23 Fall的申请已经收官结束。但对于还在学校“鱼塘”里的同学而言,前方似乎还有着漫长的等待。既然如此,不如试试主动出击。只是一封简单的催offer邮件,可能换来的就是惊喜。而这种主动寻找机会的精神,也希望大家能在学业、生活、工作里,都能够拥有。

进入Wait list意味着什么?

首先,我们需要弄明白:在学校系统里显示的状态是Wait list ,说明你并没有被录取,但也并不就意味着你被淘汰了。学校或者专业在审核学生材料时,选择了一些步骤来区分轮次,你可能被放到了下一轮的选择中。

Love letter是什么?

其实它还有一个更官方的名字叫做Letter of Continued Interest(LOCI),只是我们俗称为Love letter。

Love Letter并不是严格意义上的申请材料,所以即使学校表示,在Wait list阶段不要求或不接受学生提供附加材料的情况下,Love Letter依然是可以使用的。

那么,如何写好Love Letter,优雅地催offer?这是令很多学生头疼的问题,这里科博菌来支个招。

Love letter架构:

1. 介绍自己以及写这封信的目的

2. 再次强调对于学校的热爱

3. 明确自己的能力以及在近期的进步和成就,要具体结合 program 所需要的能力,并在自己的 letter 中体现

4. 强调自身能力能匹配学校要求并向对方表达感谢
