面试完立马来地里汇报我的面试情况,希望大家打赏一下哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈

在1月15日提交Duke Nicolas MEM(Master of Environmental Management)网申后一两天,Duke就发来了面试要求,与我对接的是一如既往的Maria Parker(一位慈祥的老奶奶,附上duke官网上的个人介绍:gradschool.duke.edu)由于春节假期在老家,所以与Maria预约了1月30日北京时间8:00的面试(面试时间需提前预约,会提前给出可以的时间,然后自己选;如果没有时间,可以商量)

1月29日晚上,我整理了以往的MEM面经,发现以往Maria的面试基本从看passport进行identification展开,然后Maria基本上是想到什么问题就问什么,会问到15 Random Things,什么问题都有可能出现,毕竟仅考察语言能力。

我的面试由skype进行,中途未出现任何连接问题,提前与妈妈测试了摄像头与麦克风状态,都是在PC上进行的

早上7点起床,穿了西装,打上发胶,泡了咖啡,然后提前开了skype等Maria打给我(之前需要向Maria发送contact request),之后8:00准时开始面试

我的面试基本全程饱满,因为我平时是一个比较喜欢说的人,碰到喜欢的话题就只顾自己一个劲的说哈哈哈哈哈哈哈

面试过程如下:

1. good morning

2. 查看passport(我的passport放学校了,然后由于疫情导致我暂时回不了学校,所幸打印了passport的扫描件),我解释了我为什么没有passport(由于武汉的肺炎)

3. 她询问我关于“Coronavirus”-新型冠状病毒,我提前准备了这个话题,讲述了我现在采取了哪些防护措施之类的

4. 她问我延迟开学会不会对我开学有影响(我说我大四了,没课了,只要回去准备毕业论文即可),她哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈

5. 然后询问我从什么时候开始想出国念书的(我说高中就计划了,最后没去,大一开始再次计划,大二去伯克利暑校直接体验海外生活,坚定了目标)

6. 她说她是湾区长大的,问我关于湾区的想法。我说一个词“Novel”说了各种大学,tech-company。然后她又问我如何看待tech和科研的关系,我介绍了我之前做的一个利用地理信息技术的研究,展示tech在科研中的应用,表明tech好用,可以发现和研究新问题。

7. 开始询问我15 Random Things(我后面附上我的15 Random Things供大家参考),她随便抽了我的第一条“我在IMdb上一直记录我看过的电影,现在看过了500多部”,她觉得挺有意思的,接下来围绕电影展开话题

6.1.一般看电影从哪里找电影?豆瓣,IMDB,我喜欢刷老电影

6.2.看电影需要subtitle吗? 有时需要,比如看纪录片,字幕可以帮我积累词汇;看老友记等不需要

6.3.习惯电影的中文配音吗?我说strange,还模仿了中文的“啊,我的圣母玛利亚”哈哈哈哈哈哈哈,Maria好像被我逗乐了

8.没什么好聊的了,然后问我有什么问题。我随便问了一下我这么晚面试会不会有问题,她说没有

以上是我的面试,总体而言我认为be yourself即可,大家轻松应对就好,要做一个幽默健谈的人哈哈哈哈哈哈哈

以下分享我的15 Random Things:

1. According to my own record on IMDb, I’ve seen 548 films so far, and 163 more are on the way. In my opinion, by spending only 2 or 3 hours watching a movie, I can experience the legendary life of movie characters. It is no exaggeration to say that watching movies could prolong life span.

2. Even though I have watched so many films, my favorite is still The Shawshank Redemption as it taught me the importance of hope. “Fear can hold you prisoner, Hope can set you free” is my favorite line and it perks me up whenever I feel depressed.

3. Having been playing basketball since I was in primary school, I joined the school basketball team as a shooting guard when I entered junior high school and we won the championship of the whole city. With a greater understanding of the NBA, I became a fan of Kyrie Irving and imitated his breakthrough technique. From him, I learned about the basketball culture of Duke University.

4. I did not play soccer until I entered university. Although my skill in soccer is still mediocre, I was elected the captain of the school’s football team in my senior year because of my fighting spirit performed in competitions. My teammates call me Puyol.

5. Whenever I buy something new, I will keep the patient and consider its practicability and durability. For example, I have a mountain bike called “Little Blue”, which has been used for 13 years. When I moved to Beijing for University, I disassembled it and mailed it to the school. Now, I still ride my bike to walk through every corner of Beijing in my spare time.

6. Workings out in the fitness center and following the strict diet every day, I have become an athletic young man. I would like to cook by myself when I study abroad in the future.

7. When I play computer or mobile games for more than half an hour, I feel dizzy. It is really grateful for me to have this “disease” since it inspires me to enjoy real-life games.

8. As the director of the Public Relations Department, Chinese Young Volunteers Association of RUC, I used to organize a volunteer activity of tree planting with more than 300 participants. This successful and meaningful activity improved my organizational ability and leadership skills while increasing my confidence.

9. At an international forum on climate change held in Beijing last year, I addressed a question to former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as a student representative, “how students in the field of environment form a global perspective on the Climate Change problem.”

10. In April 2019, one upperclassman recommended me to take over his internship at the Institute of Geography, CAS on account of my excellent academic background and research experience, when he was going to resign his internship.

11. In the summer session of UC Berkeley, I took the course Urban Experience which introduced the history and culture of American cities. It was challenging for me, but finally, I gained an A- throughout my efforts.

12. My favorite technology company is Google because it provides me with essential help acquiring knowledge, such as Google search engine, YouTube and Google Map. I once utilized the resources of YouTube to learn Python and MATLAB.

13. After surviving the export trade crisis since 2008, my father’s auto parts factory takes on fast development and contributes a little to the employment problem of Changsha. Influenced by my father, I hope to make my social contribution in the field of environmental protection.

14. My favorite resort is my grandpa’s farm where I can experience farming life and get close to nature. Thus, I will take the first chance to go there when I go back home.

15. In the term paper of Architecture, I studied the West Campus Union designed by Grimshaw. When I learned that it is located in the middle of other Gothic buildings on the Duke’s campus, I can’t wait to go to Duke and enjoy this novel building.
