Special Note : A good Scholarship is a must .Even if I have to compromise on the universities .Queries
: 1.I am quite skeptical about my work-ex as it is on the lower side. What's your take on this, as most of the universities have people with around 5 years of work-ex ?
2. Though I have done the above mentioned professional certifications but I am working just as a software Engineer and don't have a leadership role. Your comment on this.
3.Do you think ,with my kind of profile and the pre-requisite condition that I need a scholarship,I am targetting the right universities ?
