  问:A lot of students want to use their exchange experience to help them  apply for graduate schools, so what should students pay attention to during  their exchange program?

  很多学生希望这段美国学习的经历,能有助于日后的美国研究生申请。那么学生在美国的交换学习过程中,需要注意哪些问题?

  答:Well, the first thing that a student needs to prepare before actually going  to US to attend exchange program is, if they do want to use this towards the  graduate program or PHD program, they really want to first think about what  those programs are going to be looking for. Like if you are going to be pursuing  a master’s or business or something, maybe you should learn for a program that  offer something very specific. That is the first thing but always is a big  part.

  首先,学生需要提前准备到美国参加交换项目的事情。如果他们想要这经历对申请研究生或博士生项目有帮助的话,他们真的需要考虑这些项目的内容是什么。比如你想去寻求一个硕士项目或者开展生意等等,可能你会从一个项目中学习到他们提供的一些专业知识。这是首先要做的事情,也是最重要的。

  A lot of students want to find communications, so it is important to be  active when you actually in US, understand what opportunities are available for  you to actually talk to people, keep contact with professors or something like  that. Because most schools actually have specific times set aside, when every  professor will be required to be in their office, waiting for students to come.  But the problem is the teacher is not coming to find you, you have to go find  the teacher, which means you need to set aside your time, schedule a specific  day(time) to go and talk to the professor, because if you don’t go, you are not  going to talk. And he is going to be sitting there, waiting for you to come.

  很多学生想寻求沟通,交换生的主动性非常重要,明白有哪些机会让你与人们交谈,与教授等老师保持好联系。因为大多数学校实际上已经留出特定的时间,让每位教授在他们的办公室里等着学生来。但问题是老师不会主动来找你,你必须去找老师。这意味着你约定好时间,安排一个具体的时间跟教授沟通。因为如果你不去,你也不没告诉他,他会坐在那里等着你来。

  For my personal experience at Berkley, a lot of times, no one goes to use  their times, no one attends the office hours, and they don’t go and talk to  them. So when you go, you actually stand out very much from the rest of your  classmates, like there have been many times when I go to speak with the  professor and no one is going there. He said I have been sitting here all day, I  am waiting students to come but you are the first one. Because there are lots of  opportunities, because students are inactive in seeking the professor, they miss  them, they miss the free opportunities.

  以我个人在伯克利上学的经验来说,很多时候没有人去使用他们的时间,没有人参与办公时间,他们并没有去与老师对话。所以当你去的时候,你实际已经比班里其他学生突出了。有好几次我去找教授沟通时,没有一个学生去。教授说“我在办公室里坐了一天等学生来找我,你是第一个人。”因为学校里很多机会,因为学生并不主动去找教授,他们错过了老师(的等待),错过了免费沟通的机会。

  Another suggestion for when you actually talk to the professor, people  don’t know what should I talk about, how should I speak to those high-level,  intelligent person. You know, they just want to talk, the most important thing  they actually do is speak like your friend. Try to make them see you as a  friend, don’t talk to them like a whole teacher, like I really admire your work,  talk about their work, actually be interested in, engaged in the conversation,  just like you do engaging in a friend conversation. Because that is the easiest  way to make a professor willing to make the conversation, if they understand you  are a person, not a student. That is an important thing.

  另一个建议是,当你与教授说话时,人们并不知道要说什么,如何与高层次的聪明的人沟通谈话。他们说话和所做的重要一点就是像与你的朋友聊天一样。尝试让他们视你为朋友,不要像对老师说话一样,比如我很钦佩您的工作,谈谈他们的工作,是个有趣并能参与的对话,就像

  你与你的朋友谈话。因为这是最简单的方法令教授愿意建立谈话,让他们了解你的人,不单是一个学生。这点很重要。
