哈佛招生办主任在哈佛校刊的文章简单的说大概就是下面这么个意思,

 

教育学院提出的招生变革,我同意,但也有保留,标准化考试,学生的学术考核都是必须的,

哈佛教育学院的变革建议,我认为好的话,会在补充申请中有所反应,

无价值的我就不理了(这话没明说)。

 

所以,网上闹了一阵子的所谓哈佛招生变革,不过是个倡议而已,

谁相应,如何相应,何时相应都是个问题。

 

特别是最近纽约时报撰文,美国中学的学生老师批评声不断,估计这个建议很快就会被扼杀在摇篮中,

 

所以,所谓招生变革的事,是美国大学的事,目前与学生无关,特别是与中国学生无关,

 

简答地说就是,2017年美国大学的招生标准啥也没变。

 

 

Fitzsimmons stressed that his endorsement of “Turning the Tide” did not mean the College is relaxing its expectations for academic rigor. In particular, he pointed to the report’s recommendations that admissions officers reduce pressure on students to take a large number of Advanced Placement courses in high school.

 

“Academic excellence in all its forms is critically important,” he said. “There are students out there who relish the possibility of taking many AP tests, and it’s one of the things that gets them ready for work in college.”

 

Similarly, while the report suggests that schools should reevaluate whether the SAT is a predictor of academic success and consider adopting a test-optional admissions policy, Fitzsimmons said Harvard is unlikely to make such a move any time soon.

 

“We still find that standardized test scores are useful,” Fitzsimmons said. “One of the things that we hope does not get lost in the enthusiasm that people have for the report is academic excellence, measured a whole variety of ways, including by standardized test scores.”
