Was invited for another scholarship interview a few months back. 2nd time in two years. I didn’t get the previous one, and sadly, I didn’t get this year’s one.
Went for the interview session for TanLaw. 2 of wkwsci professors headed the interview. This time round, no staff from Office of Finance was there. So it was less scary.
One week after the supposed date of the acceptance email, I didn’t receive any email about this, thus I called them to verify the status of my application. Without any sympathy, the office staff told me that “if no email reached me yet, it would be quite likely that you have been rejected.” My heart totally sank after the call. At least try to be a little comforting man.
Quite discouraging I must say. The last time I got a scholarship was during primary 5 and 6, $300 dollars from MOE. After that, apart from getting some money by winning awards in CIP, community services and stuff, I have been unable to secure any academic scholarships. My academic stint from sec to jc was really average, and thus my various academic transcripts were uninteresting. Applications to various scholarship providers to study at wkwsci also went unnoticed because of my average a-level results.
God, no scholarships for me then? It’s your call. I will still do my best in what I do. I will trust You to do the rest as you know the best for me and my life.
update: The rejection email is here
