In the conventional way of applying directly to American universities, students must take various standardized examinations, including SAT, TOEFL or IELTS. All American universities accept this form of application. The admission criteria of American universities include academic achievement, extracurricular activities and personality accomplishment. Academic achievement is only a part of admission decision-making. It mainly includes SAT and individual achievement, AP score, academic ranking, GPA and so on.
Extracurricular activities mainly include scientific research, literature, art, leadership, community service, competition awards and so on. Personality cultivation mainly includes personal statement, teacher/principal recommendation letter and interview.
American universities hope to recruit students with all-round development, instead of only one technical expertise, and all three aspects of ability are indispensable. Therefore, students who are prepared to apply by conventional methods should not only pay attention to academic performance, but also participate in various social activities and pay attention to all-round development.
Application time: The application time of famous American schools is usually one year ahead of schedule. Therefore, sophomores must take standardized examinations and prepare various documents, including personal essays and letters of recommendation, to reflect the above three abilities, and to ensure a good GPA in their studies. This kind of application method has great pressure on all aspects of students, so it is not difficult.
