Default what chances does a poly dip of gpa 3.75

have in
a) getting tuition free / tuition deduction scholarship?
I saw UQ having this:
The Faculty of Science is proud to offer the UQ Science International Scholarships program. The program is two-tiered with applicants eligible to be considered either for scholarships valued at a total of AU $12,000 or AU $5,000 with one application. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic performance and the applicant’s personal statement.

Science Undergraduate Excellence Scholarships: Total value AU $12,000
(paid AU $6,000 in first semester of study and AU $6,000 in second semester of study)

b) getting into NTU/NUS biological sciences..

would taking SATs enhance the chance of other scholarships available?

are there any tuition fee scholarships? thanks in advance.

1 - if it's similar to unsw golden jubilee one needs to have a GPA of 3.8 or better to be competitive. From what I have seen successful.

2 - SAT wouldn't help from my understanding

3 - Oregon state uni is offering usd$10k scholarship renewable every yr.
BYU tuition fee is at usd$9k, iirc successful transfer US applicant has GPA of 3.65 or better

Berea college is a great uni, only 30 international students make it each yr worth a try. If u hope to get into this yr fall intake u are kind late already.

unlike OZ uni, US Uni are not too generous with transfer credits. only freshman and Sophomore classes can be transferred. in general expect ~16-20 credits transferred.if u been to JC then poly u can expect double the amount.

u need to finish 100+ credits to get your degree. depends on u, take it slow ~3yrs. plan well and do it fast ~2yrs.
