英国学校申请被拒如何argue

英国大学如何申请?被拒了Argue信怎么写?

申请排名好的英国大学要求很高,不但要语言,成绩,有的学校的专业还需要相关背景和经验。很多童鞋在申请大学的过程中难免疏漏,被英国学校拒绝了怎么办呢?argue信!这里我就自己的argue经验和广大同胞们分享。希望大家都能申到自己梦想中的大学!

题记:

其实最开始没有想过要分享俺的argue经验的,因为确实花了不少时间,但是都没有什么成果出来。最近argue回一个Glasgow的offer,雅思作文也因为argue的原因拿了个7,想想也算是有所收获了,一些朋友也私下里问我要argue的原文,今天就干脆写一个关于argue的感想吧。

先汇报本人成绩:

Strathclyde:Argue成功,offer从 MSc in Marketing转为 MSc in International Marketing

Lancaster:Argue失败

Glasgow:Argue成功,MFin 从reject 转为 Conditional Offer

Birmingham: Argue失败。虽然某programme director 说我的argue clear and well-argued,但最终还是败于本科学校的排名上。

零:

这里说的Argue,是适用于你觉得自己大概能满足学校的要求,却莫名其妙被转,被拒,或者说有比你背景还差的人拿到offer你却没拿到的情况。 Argue并非万能,不是随便什么人都能Argue回一个LSE的offer的。在我看来,Argue和雅思的复议差不多,一定要觉得自己有希望再去。当然,和雅思复议比起来,Argue出结果快,还不要钱,实在空虚了也可以和小米多纠缠一会,练练写作,我就是和小米纠缠了一个月左右雅思作文考了个7。

一.

很多前辈也说了,Argue无非就是why you why me的问题,我觉得既然是要Argue,大部分可能是自己没有满足学校的某项要求,所以我Argue信的重点都是放在自己身上。

不管是被转专业,还是被reject掉,我们argue的首要问题就是搞清楚为什么会没有拿到offer。一定要问小米why,一般的小米是会告诉你原因的,某些学校如Aston在拒信里面会很牛逼的说自己没有义务告诉你offer和reject的原因,但是其实仍然可以问出原因。我一般用的方法就是说和我背景差不多的一个朋友拿到了offer,为什么我没有拿到,希望学校能unbiased。虽然这种说法有点aggressive,但是一般小米还是会告诉你原因的,如果小米告诉你的是什么竞争激烈之类的套话,不要灰心,继续和他纠缠,直到他说出真实原因为止。

二.

知道原因过后,我们就可以有针对性的Argue了,Argue信一般是发给programme的director,一般学校的staff表里面都能找到,实在找不到可以发给小米,让他代为deliver。

如果学校拒你是因为你本科专业不相关,这时,你应该首先检讨一下,申请之前是否仔细看过学校的requirements,如果硬性要求本科背景,你又恰巧没有,就别Argue了,浪费大家的时间和表情,这相当于一应届生去Argue MBA的offer了。

如果你觉得本科背景相关,或是勉勉强强能靠上边,那就可以大胆的Argue。Strathclyde 的International Marketing 需要商科背景,我本科是新闻,由于在财经院校,学过一些商科基础课程,所以我申的IM,结果被S大转到转专业课程学的Marketing里面,于是我写了一封argue信,专门针对自己的商科背景进行陈述,最后,成功拿到offer。同样,申请Glasgow的MFIN课程,很快被拒,问了小米原因,小米直接说我本科degree不相关,我将写给Strathclyde的Argue信稍加改动传给Glasgow,第二天,MFIN offer出现在邮箱里。

如果感觉希望不大,建议大家再写一份关于你对所申请学科的感悟或是该学科最新的进展,附在argue信后面,有加分效果,当然,写这个的目的是证明你对这个领域确实是知道的,不至于一窍不通,所以,漏洞百出的最好就不要写了。

以下是我Glasgow Argue信的主要部分

Dear Nick

Thanks for your reply, But I wonder what aspect of your demand I don’t meet. Because I know there are some students who has little maths background receiving your offer, even who majoring in English. So I want you can see my personal statement, I explain my background in this..

I know it is a little late to apply a competitive programme of a prestigious university, But I do love university of Glasgow very much, when I decide to pursue further education in UK, your prestigious University is my dream School, your news disappointed me a lot, can you tell me my drawbacks for your MFIN courses, maybe I can give your new documents to meet your requirements.

Thanks very much

1. As you can see from my transcript, there are numerous courses related to business and economics. Especially, I have studied Macroeconomics, Calculus (I&II), Financial Markets, Principles of Management, The Socialist Economy in Contemporary China, Contemporary World Economics & Politics and Media Economics which are directly related to Finance and Economics. The average score of these 8 courses is 83%.And my university, Nanjing University of Finance and Economics specialized at Finance arena. There are lots of lecture and seminar about Finance and Economics in campus, and some of them are compulsory for all the students. So I often go to absorb the professional knowledge to enrich my understanding of finance and economics.

2. Beside the transcript, I took The Theory and Practice of International Trade, Media Capital Operation and Securities Investment this semester. Though my credits are enough for graduation, in order to meet your academic background demand, I took business courses while other students were putting their whole efforts into the dissertation. Though it is very tough, I still work hard because they are related to business. Fortunately, I got 83, 85 and 85 in these courses respectively. I can send the results of these 3 courses to you after winter vacation, and I can even accept that you make a condition on my offer about this.

3. I know there are only 14 courses on my transcript related to business, and after adding the 3 courses this semester, it is just 17. But there is an important thing which cannot be seen in my transcript, the number of my compulsory courses is only 40. The business-related course accounts for over 35%.I know there is a general rule, to determine an applicant whether has a business academic background, the selector will check whether the percentage of business-related courses are over 30%.So according to the rule, I have the business academic background.

如果学校说你的GPA过低,这时候就找你们院系开一个你是TOP XX的证明,一般学校还是乐于帮你做这个事情的。如果你们系人少,就用实际数字,比如第8名,如果你们系人多,名次不好看,就开 among TOP xx%。具体这方面的Argue有很多,可以搜寻一下老帖。

如果学校卡你的本科学校,譬如Birmingham之类的,我觉得这个就有点棘手了,你得针对你本科学校的优势进行Argue。我和Birmingham Argue很久,找过小米,找过几个director,最后都是失败,束手无策。他们Marketing的小米告诉我,他们只收网大排名前50的学生,在我数次指出某些非211学生拿到Birmingham经济系offer后,小米告诉我说商学院要求会比较严格,而Marketing的四个 programme更为严格,说是要求前50,但是一般75左右的学校都会收,如果你背景非常优秀,可以放宽到前100,100后的学校就不要想了。这个说法实在让人有点disappointed,Anyway,我还是把我Birmingham的Argue信发出,给大家参考参考吧。

I am a Chinese applicant for your esteemed Msc in Marketing and Msc in Marketing Communication.

Unfortunately, neither of my application is successful. I know you prestigious university has a strict recruitment, but after serious consideration, I still consider myself eligible for your programe. With certain reasons given below, I ask you to give me an opportunity and re-consider my application.

1.I know, my university is ranked 157 on netbig according to 2008’s data. But I should tell you that, There are lots of universities in China, Not every university is comprehensive university, such as mine, Nanjing University of Economics and Finance.This kind of universities don’t have a wide range of programme, instead, they specialize at Business area, just like City University in UK. City University is ranking 50 according to TIMES data, but Cass Business School is one of the most outstanding biz schools in UK.

My university, Nanjing University of Finance and Economics is ranking 6th in “University of Finance and Economics” according to NETBIG’s data. http://rank2008.netbig.com/cn/rnk_2_8_0.htm this website is Chinese version. I seek the English version but failed. So I hope you can ask a Chinese Student in your prestigious University to check this website.

2. As you can see from my transcript, there are numerous courses related to business and economics. Especially, I have studied Marketing, Marketing Communication, Financial Marketing, Principles of Management, Outline of Advertising, Human resource Management and Media Economics which are directly related to marketing. The average score of these 7 courses is 83%.And *******, one of my referee, is my teacher of Marketing Communication. It is my outstanding performance at the class that impressed him at the beginning.

3. Beside the transcript, I took The Theory and Practice of International Trade, Media Capital Operation and Securities Investment this semester. Though my credits are enough for graduation, in order to meet your academic background demand, I took business courses while other students were putting their whole efforts into the dissertation. Though it is very tough, I still work hard because they are related to business. Fortunately, I got 83, 85 and 85 in these courses

respectively. I can send the results of these 3 courses to you after winter vacation, and I can even accept that you make a condition on my offer about this.

4. I know there are only 14 courses on my transcript related to business, and after adding the 3 courses this semester, it is just 17. But there is an important thing which cannot be seen in my transcript, the number of my compulsory courses is only 40. the business-related course accounts for over 35%.I know there is a general rule, to determine an applicant whether has a business academic background, the selector will check whether the percentage of business-related courses

are over 30%.So according to the rule, I have the business academic background. Moreover, my core modules, the Journalism, have something todo with the marketing communication, such as the theory of communication and the Internet communication. They can make advantageous impacts on my marketing communication studying.

5.In the business area, I like marketing best, so I often search for the information and fetch the cutting edge knowledge on this subject during my leisure time. Especially there is enough time I can decide how to spend in the school next semester. If you could give me the reading lists, I will try my best to gain better understanding about marketing in order to benefit my further study in your prestigious university.

Besides these reasons, I will talk about my own understanding of “marketing”

In my book, Marketing means Market plus “-ing”, that is to say, implicit relation between supply and demand was influenced by the changes of product, price, promotion and communication expressed by “present continuous of Market”.

SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threaten) is a prevalent method used to analyze market environment. It not only analyzes strengths and weaknesses from internal environment, but also opportunities and threatens from external environment. The enterprises’ strengths and weaknesses include factors local resources such as finances, experts and so on, customer service, efficiency, infrastructure construction, staff and management. While external opportunities and threatens contain the factors of competitors behaviors, economic situation of social industry, loan or exchange rates, market growth and changes of law. Since 1980s, procedure control was paid more attention. In addition, classical 4P marketing theory had also been formed into 7P theory, which included product, price, promotion, place& distribution, people, process and physical evidence.

So in my eye, the core values of 7P theory pointed out that the participation of employees played a more important role in marketing. Employee is the main part of enterprise. Everything worked by employees is the branch of customers’ feedbacks on services, affecting the image of enterprise. Each employee should be allowed and asked to participate in business management and decision-** actively and forwardly. On the other hand, the enterprise would keep an eye on the entire process of services. To understand customers in the process through interactive communication, the enterprise enables customers to become the part of marketing process, which can promptly improve their services and meet customer expectations. The management on cooperation and division of each departments is also vital in marketing, because cooperation from departments and participation of employees is a necessity. Cooperation and division of departments are the fundamental guarantee for a successful marketing.

Consequently, I want to ask for reconsideration for me. Birmingham Business School is world-famous, especially at marketing field. The programme content of your esteemed Marketing-related courses are very outstanding and competitive, thus I love this programme very much and want to study in this programme eagerly.

Thanks for your consistent support and help. I am looking forward to your early reply.
