Do we have to also send official score report for GMAT and official transcripts to NUS before evaluation?

You can attach your bank statement that would be good enough.
If not convinced you can try the number given on website after Wednesday (We are celebrating Chinese New Year in Singapore and all schools/colleges are now closed till Wed)

Just got a rejection letter. They said 'despite many merits, we regret to inform....'

GRE 325, GPA 8.86/10 and 2.3 workex. Published writer, engineer female... decent extra currs and achievements... not even interviewed! Can anyone think of any reasons>? I am betting on the workex...

Sorry to hear. How were your personal statements/essays? NUS is a highly selective school and your work ex is way below the median. Any admitted student would throw more light on this. Did you give the GMAT btw?

NUS's bad luck if it does not know how to chose the right talent.
I have seen many who were rejected by NUS but got selected in higher rank institutes such as LBS & Cambridge

So don't worry; hope for the next one!
NUS selection process seems to quite mysterious

Btw when did you apply - towards the end of R1 ? not sure if they might have got many better candidates before your application!

I THINK I did a decent job with my essays/statements... My long term goal is to open an institution for underprivileged women in India and guide them about diverse career opportunities (kind of how i want to break the myth of engineering etc) ...i even mentioned how Singapore ranks 3rd in the safest cities for women survey! ....

I asked three MBA veterans to crosscheck my essays and they did give the green light... :(

I have been waitlisted/dinged by ross, no replies from tuck and yale yet... so I think something is definitely going wrong my profile...cant seem to figure out what!
And I gave GMAT but didnt land a very good score...screwed verbal completely! got a 640 (q50 v27 awa5.5 ir8) But i am also not planning to retake GMAT, I thought i will go with my GRE.

Well, thanks for the info! Although I have given up hope after this rejection! And I have applied around 14th Jan 2016....
This is my first international-MBA-Admission experience... I have learnt a lot about the process... The scenario is completely different in my home-country India..where any experience beyond 2-3 yrs is considered a demerit. So I guess I am in a bit of a muddle...! Let see what the future has in store for me...

All the best to the rest of the applicants! :)

I cannot comment on your goals because I don't know how they relate with your career background but two very obvious red flags that stick out in your application are your GMAT score and your Work Ex. No matter what the schools say, the GMAT score counts for a lot when it comes to Indian applicants (I have no idea how your GRE score compares to the school averages so cannot comment there). It becomes even tougher to get in with a low score when you even have a low work ex. I see the application process as a triangle with the three vertices being - Work Ex, GMAT Score, Essays - you have to nail at least 2 of those 3 to score an invite.

My suggestion is for you to apply after a year or two with a more competitive score and a stronger profile. I've said it in other threads as well, there's no reason for us to feel hurt about being rejected by these schools because the reason they are the top B-Schools is because they are so strict with their filtering process. That's how they maintain that top quality.

I completely agree with you. It is not like I am bogged down with the rejection...everything is a learning process, the thing is I have an opportunity to crack IIMs this year in India, but I was hoping to leave the country and get my MBA abroad. So the longer and harsher route for me will be to not go into Indian BSchools and come back stronger two years later. But the human mind is always tempted by shortterm success!

The crux of my situation is I HAVE NOT SENT THE GMAT SCORES to NUS! They solely judged through my GRE! So they cannot possibly know my 640 dunce feather~ can they? (yikes)

No they cannot see your GMAT scores if you have not sent them.
Regarding the choice of an Indian MBA vs an MBA from outside, it all depends on where you want to work post MBA.
The Indian schools are good too (especially IIM A, B, C and ISB) and can get you the profiles that you want.

If you are sure of yourself and are ready to wait, then I would say wait, improve your profile and re-apply.
Indian MBA experience cannot be compared to that of NUS, where in you study with people from 30 different countries.
It will give you immense learning and will imrpove you both profesionaly and personaly.

I myself ditched my IIM interviews (not A, B, C) back in 2013, tried hard, stayed on track and FINALLY got through in what I feel is a respectable school :)
So the choice is always yours.

Completely agree with what Ankur has to say. While the IIM's and ISB are excellent, they are only so within an Indian context. An ISB class consists of 95% Indians and that number is higher for the IIM's. They lack severely in the classroom quality that is provided by an NUS or a top 30 US B-School. If you can wait it out, then you definitely should.

Yes..this is the hardcore truth... while Indian MBAs are bookish and theoretical, getting an MBA from the top 30 colgs of the world is a different ball game all together...I wanted a global exposure, a fresh experience and first hand business experience... Due to some personal constraints, I need to carry on with my higher education this year itself.... if I am unable to crack ..i guess i will join IIM and then look out for the SIPA program in Columbia/ the Masters in Advanced mgmt in Yale after getting some work-ex or straight out of college....
There are numerous opportunities...! Since my goal is to do understand business, I believe I definitely need an mba from the top 30 of the world. Kudos to all who are making it big and seriously contributing to business and society! :)
