这是个沉重的话题,哥伦比亚移民第一代大学生读哈佛什么感觉,以下是相关报导。

 

在美国家庭年收入低于5万美元的都属于低收入群体,

这一比例在美国的富裕大学中的学生比例占10%左右,

家庭年收入高于20万美元的属于富裕阶层,这一学生比例在哈佛超过50%

 

在沃顿商学院,有学生团体学生家庭资产的入门门槛,(福布斯公布的资产)100亿美元,

 

不要说100亿美元了,就是家庭一亿美元资产的学生和低收入群体的学生,能“玩“到一起吗?

这个问题的答案谁都清楚。

 

很多国内留学生在美国大学炫富,也仅仅是在低收入群体占多数的大公立学校,显摆一下罢了,

到了美国的富学校如常春藤一类的学校,好像能够有资格摆谱的几乎寥寥无几,

即使真有资格了,倒常常是很低调。

 

美国富学校的富学生不一定都是美国的学生,

一些国际学生,来自不同国家的国家级富豪,也都属于学校富裕子弟的行列,

国内留学生如果能混到这些世界级的巨富子弟的圈子里,也只能算上有共同语言罢了,

即便如此一般来说还没有炫富的资本。

 

回过头来说,文中的学生一入学,就受到低收入学生组织的“关照“,看起来是件好事,但学生的心灵上很快就蒙上阴影。回到宿舍,可能会觉得与室友已经明显有了层次的区别,假期外出游玩人家谈论的是每天一万美元的旅行计划,交友人家的圈子是总理大使等等,当然在富裕学校里,有不同经济层次的学生,文章所反映的情况是,穷学生在富裕学校里与富裕学生为伍,很多时候并不那么开心。但愿这是个别学生的个别情况,很多学校都为弥补学生贫富差别做出努力,包括need-blind全额资助等,但这不是本文所讨论的话题,很多贫寒家庭子弟在牛校取得辉煌成就,例如前高盛总裁等世界级名人等,同样也不是本文所探讨的话题。

 

据本人多年对美国大学的研究认为,以下学校都属于美国富裕学校,富裕家庭的学生比例相对较高:

 

对于富裕家庭(年收入20万美元起步,不计其它资产)来说,这些学校是属于你们的好学校,

而对于低手家庭的学生来说(年收入低于5万美元),这些学校不一定是属于你们的好学校,

大公立系统学校可能更适合些。(注,富裕大学不一定富裕学生比例高)

What is it like to be poor at an Ivy League school?

 

High-achieving, low-income students, often the first in their families to attend college, struggle to feel they belong on elite campuses.

 

WHEN ANA BARROS first stepped into Harvard Yard as a freshman, she felt so out of place she might as well have had the words “low income” written on her forehead. A girl from Newark doesn’t belong in a place like Harvard, she thought, as she marveled at how green the elms were, how quaint the cobblestone streets. Back home, where her family lives in a modest house bought from Habitat for Humanity, there wasn’t always money for groceries, and the world seemed gray, sirens blaring at all hours. Her parents, who immigrated to the New York area from Colombia before she was born, spoke Spanish at home. It was at school that Barros learned English. A petite 5-foot-2 with high cheekbones and a head of model-worthy hair, Barros found out in an e-mail that she’d been accepted to Harvard — a full scholarship would give her the means to attend. “I knew at that moment that I’d never suffer in the way that my parents did,” she says.

 

She opted for a single her freshman year, because she felt self-conscious about sharing a room with someone from a more privileged background. “All you see are class markers everywhere, from the way you dress to the way you talk,” says Barros, now a junior sociology major, as she sits in a grand, high-ceilinged space off the dining room in her Harvard College dorm. During her freshman and sophomore years, Barros hesitated to speak in class because she often mispronounced words — she knew what they meant from her own reading, but she hadn’t said many aloud before, and if she had, there had been no one to correct her. Friends paired off quickly. “You’d get weeded out of friendships based on what you could afford. If someone said let’s go to the Square for dinner and see a movie, you’d move on,” she says. Barros quickly became close with two other low-income students with whom she seemed to have more in common. She couldn’t relate to her peers who talked about buying $200 shirts or planning exotic spring break vacations. “They weren’t always conscious of how these conversations can make other people feel,” she says. In a recent sociology class, Barros’s instructor asked students to state their social class to spark discussion. “Middle,” said one student. “Upper class,” said another. Although she’d become accustomed to sharing her story with faculty, Barros passed. It made her uncomfortable. “Admitting you’re poor to your peers is sometimes too painful,” she says. “Who wants to be that one student in class speaking for everyone?”

 

 

For generations, attending an Ivy League college has been practically a birthright for children of the nation’s most elite families. But in 2004, in the hopes of diversifying its student body and giving low-income, high-achieving students a chance at an Ivy League education,
