1.          Jane: 嘿,你收到威斯康辛大學的簡介了沒有?
Bob:
嗯,它看來是個好學校,我一定要去申請。
Jane: Hey, Bob, did you get the prospectus from Wisconsin yet?
Bob: Yeah. It looks like a good school.  I’m definitely going to apply.

 

2.          Jane: 抱歉,Mr. Markowitz:我要申請Dartmouth大學,他們要三封推薦信。你可以幫我寫一封嗎?
Mr. Markowitz:
當然,你向來是我班上最好的學生之一。
Jane: Excuse me, Mr. Markowitz. I’m applying to Dartmouth College, and they want three letters of recommendation. Would you write one for me?
Mr. Markowitz: Sure, Jane. You’ve always been one of the best students in my classes.

3.          Bob: !!我把Stanford大學的申請表弄丟了!而且我都填好了!
Jane:
這真是個災難!要花你好幾天的時間寫那些論文。
Bob: Oh, no! I lost the application forms for Stanford! And I’d already filled them in!
Jane: What a disaster! It took you days to write those essays.

 

4.          Jane: 我決定要申請Berkeley的入學提前許可証。
Bob:
Berkeley大學是你的第一選擇,如果他們接受你,你一定得去唸。
Jane: I’ve decided to apply for early admission to Berkeley.
Bob: So Berkeley is your first choice. If they accept you, you’ve got to go there.

5.          Bob: 好消息!我剛收到康乃爾大學的接受函。
Jane:
恭喜你!那是美國最難申請的學校之一
Bob: Good news! I just got an acceptance letter from Cornell.
Jane: Congratulations! That’s one of the most competitive schools in the country.

6.          Bob: Jane,你收到萊斯大學的回信了沒有?
Jane:
我打過電話給註冊組,他們說我在後補名單上。
Bob: Jane, have you gotten a response from Rice yet?
Jane: I called the Office of Admissions, and they said I was on the waiting list.

7.          Bob: !妳進哈佛大學了!
Jane:
我和你一樣驚訝!我猜我的課外活動事蹟真的幫我申請到了。
Bob: Wow, Jane—you got into Harvard!
Jane: I’m as surprised as you are! I guess my extracurricular activities really helped my application.

 

8.          Bob: 因為隨時申請隨時審核制度,我已經知道所有當地學校的決定。
Jane:
對,可是你還是必須等到有截止日期的學校決定。
Bob: I’ve already heard from all the local schools, since they have rolling admissions policies.
Jane: Yeah, but you’ve still got to wait for the decisions of all the schools with application deadlines.

 

9.          Jane: 我剛才聽說喬治城大學一年級的每一名額就有六個人申請。
Bob:
!好吧!我猜又一個美金45元申請費報銷了!真希望我早知道喬治城大學大學這麼難申請。
Jane: I just heard that Georgetown had six applicants for every available place in the freshman class.
Bob: Oh, well—I guess that’s another $45 application fee down the drain. I wish I’d known that Georgetown was so selective.

 

10.      Bob: 我剛剛收到耶魯大學的拒絕函,我爸爸的母校,我可以告訴你他一定不會高興。
Jane:
就等你告訴他你秋季要去上哈佛大學!他就會氣炸了!
Bob: I just got a rejection letter from Yale, my dad’s alma mater. He’s not going to be happy, I can tell you that.
Jane: Just wait until you tell him you’re going to Harvard in the fall! Then he’s really going to blow his top!
