回復 HarryPotter 的帖子

It is difficult for a secondary student to find relevant summer placement and it may not be necessary for him to do so. In my son 's case, he did  not attend any summer internship. However, during summer he did attend a magistrate court and the high court for about 2 weeks to hear cases as a mere spectator. I think it works because he was successful in securing 4 offers from 4 UK law schools. He was even in the Camridge winter pool and was lastly rejected by the end of January 2008.

The court experience did show to the admission tutor that he had a keen interest in studying law. In his personal statement, he wrote a reflection on such attendance and what he had learnt and benefitted from such attendances and what he would do in his future study.

Thank you for your information.  I would like to ask whether the interview questions are bussiness related or ask something general?  Will students  studying BAFS or Econ have a better chance?

ANChan,

看到[經濟日報]一篇報道(Jun 18, 2012),就聯想到你家的孩子。

St Jo 一名中六生取得牛津,倫敦大學學院,倫敦國王學院及杜倫大學的法律學院有條件取錄 (法律系)。

制勝點是這位男生參加學校的學長計劃, 花一星期時間跟任職律師樓 partner 的師兄見客,上法庭....

名校就有這種優勢,師兄可以帶領師弟探索不同行業。

AnChan59,
真是十分感謝你提供了很多入大學的策略以及事前準備, 但有些不明白想向仁兄請教
据了解你的兒子是讀IB, 而你亦主要target 本地大學的medicines, QF, etc.
As far as I understand, 如果target US top-tier universities, 大學會看学生各方面的才能如校內GPA, SAT,  public examinations results, ECA, community services, etc.  而英國則着重public examinations results 及對揀選學科的知識.
而local universities 不是只是看public examinations 的成績以及interview 的表現嗎?  但看见這裏不論是jupas and non-jupas candidates 都好似用美國的approach咁?  又ECA, community services, overseas volunteer services, summer jobs, internship, shadowing, attachment, etc.  local universities 真係会看咁多样野嗎?  或是所有家長也是來個大包圍 for US, UK, HK universities?
另外, 你們所說的category 1, 2 and 3, 是否是說local universities 不同major 對interview 重要性的比重程度呢?
此外想請教你們的意見, 其實現今年代undergraduate或postgraduate大學的名氣比較重要呢?  如果在我個年代所有人包括僱主的共識肯是undergraduate, 是經過千辛萬苦爭取入去, 但現在我想有2至3成人是会讀master的, 令到master果間大學名氣也很重要.  What do you think about this?

最後, 亦想分享曾聽過某US名牌大學的Admission Officer說, 佢地果張申請表要寫父母職業, 如果一個藍領一個中產家庭的学生成织若果相同, 佢地会揀藍領仔女果個.  亦因此, 佢地吾會計分比 expensive overseas summer course, etc.

(1) To play safe, it is a correct attitude to target all the US, UK and local colleges. You have a choice if you are successful in more than one offer.

(2) the reputation of an undergraduate college is more important than the same college in which you take a postgraduate program.

(3) In general it is true that if everything being equal an applicant who is the first generation to apply for college would have some favor. Since US admission officer use a holistic approach to assess the applicants, it is difficult to tell that they would discount the effect of an expensive overseas summer program. I would think that they are interested in what you learnt and you took from that program rather than such program is expensive or not.
