But here's the truth, the assessment varies and has been changing recently. They now look for other things outside of Academics... make your self interesting and hustle to get it.
Here's the truth, by spending 1 to 2 months applying for Scholarships... you are saving yourself 3 years of Tuition fees ranging between $30k to $50k (which will take you a further 2 years to clear when you first start working.) So why not try to take a chance... and so what if you get rejected! Don't waste this chance to save a big amount of money... for you or your parents!
