In order to come up with a concrete plan about your application
strategy, the most useful tool is the “Safety/Match/Reach” list. You may
come across these general terms but I’m going to explain how to use them
to your benefit. 

有关大学报名策略的切实方案,我觉得最好实用之道就是准“保底/匹配/冲刺”三极走。这几乎独术语或者你见面以任何地方撞,但本身按照惦记以是解释一下,希望对你们所有助。

The point of an SMR list is to get you to think strategically about
where you’re applying. You should apply broadly and to as many schools
as possible—somewhere between 5 and 20 is probably the right number. If
you’re applying to more than 20 you may be spreading yourself too thin,
and less than 5 might leave you without any acceptances. To avoid this
problem, think about things this way:

夫“安全/匹配/冲刺”三尺度是为帮助您战略性的来考虑你想报名之学校。申请时学选当如广泛有,尽可能多申请,大概控制在五届二十所学校于适合。一旦申请的该校盖了20所,你的肥力就过度分散;申请的学府如果五所还非顶,那有或同所还无让选定。为了避免这个题材,你得按下这种方式来琢磨:

The Safeties: 

They’re called “safeties” because they’re safe. Pick 3 schools that you
are certain you should get in. How do you figure that out? The easiest
way is by looking at numbers. If you are above average for the school’s
admitted SAT/ACT and GPA (grade point average), you have a strong
chance. If you are in the upper quartile, it’s a safety. So let’s say
you have a 2200 SAT and a 3.5, and College X’s average is 2100 and 3.4.
That’s not quite a safety—you can’t guarantee you’ll be accepted. But if
the average is closer to 2000 and a 3.3, then it would likely be a
safety. The general rule for safeties is: ‘if I didn’t get into this
school, I would be surprised’.

安全学校(即保底学校):

因此成为安全学校是因报名就仿佛院校是安全的、没什么风险。选择三所而确信会叫圈定的学府。那哪选呢?最简单易行的法门就是是看数字。如果您的SAT或ACT成绩跟在校平均成绩超乎某校的平均录取水平,你被选定的几带队就充分好。如果你的成排在此学校的前四分之一,那么这个学校就是是你的平安选择。举个例子,比如您的SAT成绩是2200,平均绩点是3.5,X学校被录学生的SAT成绩平均是2100,平均绩点是3.4,。此学校就非能够算得你的安选择,也就是说你无法确保您会为选用。但只要是学校的平均水平是SAT不至2000,绩点接近3.3,这学校就好算是你的安选择。安全学校的一般定律是:如果自己从来不吃引用,那真的太为自家竟然了。

The Match: 

These are schools whose average is right around your numbers. If you
think you are a qualified candidate and your numbers match up closely
with their numbers,  it’s a match. The general rule would be ‘I’d be
unlucky not to get in’.

匹配学校:

即时是指那些录取学生的个平均水平和而的私家情况相匹配的学校。如果您以为自己是合格的候选人,同时你的个成就都跟过去被录的学员相差无几,这便印证是学校与汝的力是互相匹配的。匹配学校的基本定律是:如果没有叫录用,那纯是运气太差。

The Reach: 

A college is a reach if your numbers are less than their average. Some
schools are a reach for everyone—the top 10 hardest schools to get into.
The rule here is, ‘I hope to get in here but I’m not going to bet on
it’.

奋起学校

一旦你的个成就比较对方学校所录学生的平均水平略逊一筹,那是学校虽是艰苦奋斗学校。有些学校对任何人来说还是属于冲刺之,比如前面十所最难以进的学校。这里的清规戒律是:我欲能被引用但本身连随便外把握。

So What do I do now?

Do your research and come up with three schools that fit each column
based on your numbers and credentials: 3 safeties, 3 matches, and 3
reaches. The point of this system is that you don’t put all your eggs in
one basket. Applying to only safeties or only reaches is a bad idea. A
good applicant diversifies their chances, while not going overboard and
applying to too many schools. This list doesn’t need to be final but it
is the first step in a successful admissions cycle. 

那么本理应举行啊为?

切磋一下大学情况吧,根据你自己之大成跟奖项各选出三所学校来对号入座以上三类:三所保底的、三所匹配的、三所冲刺之。此措施的目的是语您如为自己留下退路,别在一棵树上吊死。只报名保底学校还是冲刺学校都是未长的。明智的申请者会受协调又火候,同时也不见面申请过多校。在提请各个环节中,这个“保底/匹配/冲刺”原则不必然会自决定作用而可是申请成功的第一步。
