比尔老师:名校与哈佛大比拼

对很多华裔父母来说,孩子荣获哈佛大学录取,岂有不接受之理!然而一般美国学生却常常把哈佛录取通知书扔进了废纸篓。哈佛毕竟是美国大学的旗舰,如果假定学生弃哈佛而选择另一所大学的百分比体现了另一所大学对考生的吸引力,那么根据美国教育大数据网站http://www.parchment.com/c/college/tools/college-cross-admit-comparison.php

各大名私校相对哈佛的吸引力排名如下:

parchment.com 采集数据全靠学生自报,虽然数据量不小,但是常常会有自我选择偏差。然而我们仍然可以看出普通美国人选择大学的考量和华裔很不一样。地域情节,家族情节,历史情节,地理位置,以及学杂费用等等都会使学生弃哈佛而投奔另一所名校。
