dynoto, that's where most of our acerbic answers come from. The most inane questions in the world. It wouldn't be so bad it the answers to those question actually had an iota of relevance to the application. But they don't, how bloody hard is it to understand that every little thing you write on the application has plus or minus points given to it. As does the results of their in situ vetting teams in the countries the applicant is coming from. From the reputed University (only in your country) that nobody has ever heard of outside of that country, to the MBA from a paper mill or via long distance learning. Oh, also add or subtract points if the parents are still alive, if you have childrens, What gender they are, grades in Univ, how many siblings you have and the chances of collateral damage, e.g., if you subsequently apply for SC and you get it, how many relative will you try to drag along to sponge off the subsidies here. Absolutely NO TWO PROFILES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME and there is the rub. Some people cannot get that into their thick skulls. These people shouldn't have even been given an EP or S pass. Amd recently it just seems to be getting worse.
SOME PEOPLE TRY TO TURN BACK THEIR ODOMETERS. NOT ME. I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHY I LOOK THIS WAY. I'VE TRAVELED A LONG WAY, AND SOME OF THE ROADS WEREN'T PAVED. ~ Will Rogers
