The major difference is that yet is a Negative Polarity Item (NPI), while so far isn't.
The way you demonstrate that is to remove the not from both sentences:
"yet" must be used with negative or interrogative negative sentences but "so far" is used with affirmative sentences.
Hasn't she completed her studies yet?
Mohan hasn't eaten dinner yet?
Many applications have been invited but a few has been submitted so far.
