2. Applying for a SUSI grant is harder than trying to negotiate world peace:

6. Promising payment to your family and friends if they do your assignment when in reality you don't have a penny:


7. Tailoring your degree to suit the job you want:

Don't be too hard on yourself. For most of us, it's a once in a lifetime gig.
