我差点笑哭!来看看芝加哥大学2021-2022奇葩Essay题目
Question 1 (Required)(必答题)

Question 2: Extended Essay (Required; Choose one) (必答题,选其一)
Essay Option 1
What if the moon were made of cheese? Or Neptune made of soap? Pick a celestial object, reimagine its material composition, and explore the implications. Feel free to explore the realms of physics, philosophy, fantasy…the sky is the limit!
—Inspired by Tate Flicker, Class of 2025
如果月亮是奶酪做的会怎么样?或者海王星是用肥皂做的会怎么样?选择一个天体,重新想象它的物质组成,并探索其含义。你可以自由探索物理、哲学、幻想等领域,天空是你的极限!

Essay Option 2
What’s so easy about pie?
—Inspired by Arjun Kalia, Class of 2025
馅饼为什么这么好做?

Essay Option 3
In Homer’s Iliad, Helen had a “face that launched a thousand ships.” A millihelen, then, measures the beauty needed to launch one ship. The Sagan unit is used to denote any large quantity (in place of “billions and billions”). A New York Minute measures the period of time between a traffic light turning green and the cab behind you honking. Invent a new unit of measurement. How is it derived? How is it used? What are its equivalents?
—Inspired by Carina Kane, Class of 2024, and Ishaan Goel, Class of 2025
在荷马的《伊利亚特》(Iliad)中,海伦有一张“使千帆起航的脸”。然后,一毫海伦就可以测量一艘船下水所需要的美丽。萨根单位用来表示任何大的数量(代替“数以亿计的”)。纽约分钟测量的是从交通灯变绿到你后面的出租车按喇叭的时间间隔。发明一种新的计量单位。它是如何推导出来的?如何使用的?等价物是什么?

Essay Option 4
"There is no such thing as a new idea" - Mark Twain. Are any pieces of art, literature, philosophy, or technology truly original, or just a different combination of old ideas? Pick something, anything (besides yourself), and explain why it is, or is not, original.
—Inspired by Haina Lu, Class of 2022
“没有所谓的新想法这种东西”——马克•吐温。有什么艺术、文学、哲学或技术是真正原创的,或者只是旧思想的不同组合?挑一件东西,任何东西(除了你自己),然后解释为什么它是或不是原创的。

Essay Option 5
It's said that history repeats itself. But what about other disciplines? Choose another field (chemistry, philosophy, etc.) and explain how it repeats itself. Explain how it repeats itself.
—Inspired by Ori Brian, AB’19
据说历史总在重演。那其他学科呢?选择另一个领域(化学、哲学等),解释它是如何周而复始的。

Essay Option 6
In the spirit of adventurous inquiry (and with the encouragement of one of our current students!) choose one of our past prompts (or create a question of your own). Be original, creative, thought provoking. Draw on your best qualities as a writer, thinker, visionary, social critic, sage, citizen of the world, or future citizen of the University of Chicago; take a little risk, and have fun!
本着冒险探索的精神,从我们过去的题目中选择一个(或自己创建一个问题)。要原创,有创意,发人深省。发挥你作为作家、思想家、远见者、社会评论家、圣人、世界公民或芝加哥大学未来公民的最佳品质;冒点险,玩得开心。
