I got it two times
Yes I'm aware there is a whole bunch of various scholarships up for grabs, the CSC seems to be the most generous though. I heard if for some reason application for CSC scholarship is unsuccessful, it is automatically submitted for another scholarship scheme (local government or university's own). But that might be exclusively Nanjing University's policy.
By writing "prestigious", I had in mind solely the quality of education, devoid of any snobbish pursuits I know it is by no means a guarantee, especially that the Eastern and Western approaches to education vary immensely. But I would imagine it is not as easy to become a self-conceited individual out of touch with the real mundane world around them when attending the "Ivy League" of China, as it is in the West, simply because just living here is a never-ending lesson in humility and finding your way in this chaotic system, where your dormitory 阿姨 can quickly show you your place I enjoyed the article though.
Are you more interested in translation and interpreting (conferences, legal contracts) or translating literature?
Definitely written translation, literature, subtitles for movies, boring documents,都可以 I am well aware of the challenges oral, and especially simultaneous interpreting poses, and I don't think Im suited for working under such pressure.
What are your personal goals?
I want to get the stage when reading serious books in Chinese and holding philosophical conversations will not pose problems. I totally enjoy learning the language, in spite of the tricky tones...
Other than that, I just wanna stay at home and procreate like a rabbit, but I need to pay the bills somehow
Thank you Somethingfunny, that thread indeed offers some helpful insights!
