    Hi! Just thought I would create a thread for applicants of the scholarship here to make the wait more bearable. Anyone applied or got a reply or am waiting like me?

    HEY!

    Just noticed this thread. I applied for the Desmond Tutu Scholarship but I feel as though my application was a little too pretentious Not intentionally, it's just a really difficult essay to write, I thought. Good luck to you guys though!

    I hold an offer for English Language and Literature

    I guess it mostly sounds pretentious cos its talking about altruism, but it should be fine as long as you clearly expressed what you sincerly thought, and anchored the 2 criterias?

    Firmed for medicine here btw

    I also thought it was a difficult essay to write, especially since I'm not sure what I'm going to do after I graduate! Good luck!

    I also found it really hard from that point of view, as if I was simply listing a number of altruistic virtues, with no real ability to directly project a specific environment in which I would utilise them.

    I wrote from a more general perspective rather than focusing on a specific project. I also didn't feel like bragging, but it's difficult not to brag when you're writing an essay about your own capabilities.

    I also found the essay really difficult, some how managed to finish on 1000 words (ironic considering my personal statement finished on 4000 characters haha trust me!) but yeah I found it tough.
    I hold an offer for maths, hoping to go on to doing something in banking, but who likes bankers?! Aghhh. Anyways I ended up going right into feminism within the workplace etc, and talked about how Tutu had done a lot of work in this area, so I was confident their would be a fluent and recurring emphasis on equality during my time at King's... blahblah.
    I definitely went off on several different tangents, so I have no idea how it'll be received, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :-)

    Oh thats an interesting take! Mine was marginally more obvious to me as theres many ways for healthcare to benefit society. Nearly 1000 words as well
