I am not an expert on scholarships, so my "two cents" are simply to demonstrate need, demonstrate how their will be an ROI on the investment in you by what you will achieve post-grad to represent the school positively, thus making you a worthwhile investment.
I sense you are applying from abroad? You might check into how much scholarship money is available at your target schools for foreign students- this varies school by school. If you are an American applying to US schools, you will tend to receive more money from schools that you are "over-qualified" for, and less from schools that are a reach school.
Again, just my thoughts on the matter. Definetley seek more feedback as well!
Thanks a lot for your detail reply.Really appreciate it.
Yes, you're right-I'm from abroad...
It would be great help if you can forward my questions to any of the experts from your Veritas
However,another quick question on the same- As you've mentioned 'to demonstrate need', I guess not many schools offer need-based scholarships...! However, I would really appreciate if you shed some insights on the fact that how the need based offers are determined..? Is it based on the personal assets of the candidate or his/her family or else?
Much appreciate any feedback from team Veritas
