Is anyone a re-applicant here. Needed help with finding a way to use certain components of my last year's application (I was dinged after the Interview), like GMAT Score, Recommendations etc. Is that possible in the case of NUS, others schools (for eg ISB) commonly allow this?

I have scanned their entire site, but there is no mention of any deadlines for the interview invites. But seeing how 31st March is the round 2 deadline, we can say that all round 1 interviews should be finished before that.

If anybody else has more firm info on this, please do share.

Hello Everyone

I applied to NUS in mid November and had my interview on the 5th of December. I am yet to receive any news from adcom, however when I called them, they said that they would release my decision in couple of weeks time. I am an Indian applicant based in Bahrain. There is a lot of discussion regarding NUS 2014 intake here - http://pagalguy.com/forums/gmat-accepti ... -t-100863/

With regards to my application

1. Type of interview (in person or via skype or telephone) : Skype interview on invitation
2. Approx time : 25 minutes
3. Interviewer(s) name and profile (if you remember, like an alumnus or AdCom member or professor): Ms Poh Hwee Bee, Head of Student Development Unit and Mr Alan Chua , Marketing Manager
4. Type of questions asked: Basic MBA questions and slightly more around my work experience.

The essays are bit different and may require extra attention. One of them is very similar to MIT's essay. Good luck

Thanks!

The interview was a panel-style interview conducted by 2 people: the head of career services and a member of the MBA marketing team. The questions were basic, for example:

1) Why MBA?
2) Why NUS?
3) Why Singapore, since there are so many good B-Schools in the US?
4) a) What other schools have you applied to?
b) Why NUS vs. those schools?
5) What is your plan B if you don't go to business school?
6) How did you hear about NUS?

Even so, make sure to do your research and ask them GOOD questions. I think that will be one of the important factors.

Good Luck!

Hi Guys...

I submitted my application on 31st Jan 2014 (last day for scholarship - deadlines inspire me! )...but haven't yet heard anything about the Interview from NUS. Is there a date by which NUS will roll out the interview invites? How does this process work at NUS? Information on this topic will be really helpful.

Cheers.

I guess it takes about 3-4 weeks for them to send a decision. I had submitted on 30th Jan and received an email 2 days back (got rejected :( ).
User sfmesh also says he got the final admission confirmation in about 3 weeks from date of submission.
However, if you have not received any rejection, they must still be considering your app.

@ganeshjagtap,
hard luck mate. With a stellar gmat score, I am quite shocked.
Anyways, I see that you have applied for US schools as well. If you were keen on US schools, what was your motivation to apply to NUS? Have you applied to any other Asian schools?

Compared to the school's average I have low GPA, less work-ex (2.5 yrs), fewer extra-curricular activities and no international work exposure; I knew it was difficult to get in this year but still tried anyways.

Although I am keen on the US schools, I applied at NUS as it aligns with my career goals. Simple as that.
This year I have applied at only 4 schools (3 in US). If I don't get in any place, then next year I might try for Insead and ISB as well.

What's your story? Got any admits yet?

@ganeshjagtap,
hmm.. was wondering because typically US schools offer 2 year program as compared to shorter versions in Europe/Asia. I think you have time in your favor considering 2.5 years work-ex. So duration should not matter to you I guess.. Anyways, best for US schools and Insead/ISB if you apply.
I have applied to NUS as of now.. have given the interview and waiting for their decision.. was too late to apply for INSEAD Aug'14 intake, so applying for Jan'15.. hopefully should submit in a week.
