Should I do an extra application for a scholarship from a safety school?
The Master's University (a safety school for me) invited me to fill out a separate application for their President's scholarship. I have the SAT scores and GPA for it, but it requires another essay and application and I'm so tired of filling out applications and writing essays. I'm also really busy with school, sports, etc. Will I need this scholarship? Is it worth filling out the application?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
It seems like it can't hurt ..except that you're busy and tired of applications. Given that this is a safety school, it is largely dependent on how likely you are to actually attend the school. If you think you are likely to attend the school, apply for the scholarship. If the scholarship is transferable (i.e., you receive the scholarship but end up going to a different school and can use it there), then definitely apply! You could take an essay written for another college or scholarship and tweak it to fit this one. Best of luck to you.
