talk about a blanket statement....

If I had an admit for every time somebody mentioned ISB in this forum, I would probably be vacationing somewhere in Europe right now and not prepping for my NUS interview :beer

no, I disagree there was ANY difference to the interpretation of your statement.

Your statement clearly says:
1.) ISB it the BEST Indian School (FYI - IIM students might disagree)
2.) To not waste your time with NUS once admitted to ISB (which makes ISB > NUS a.k.a a blanket statement based on ????rankings???)

Keep doing that bro. I care the least.
I never said it's the best b school, I said it is the topmost brand.
Once admitted to ISB, shouldn't bother about NUS = not to worry about getting in. You at least have something in hand.

nowhere did you mention in the sentence that an ISB admit shouldn't worry about admission to NUS because of a "safety net"

Hi, there
I'm sorry if this question is out of topic, but can I ask about choosing between NTU and NUS MBA?
I've tried to search the forum but cannot find any detailed answer
My hope for post-MBA job is to continue in banking industry

I just got an admit from NUS today and from NTU a month earlier

Not 100% correct.
NUS program is quite flexible. You can complete it in 1 year though the standard program is 16 months.

There is a huge difference between the student profile in both the institutes. NTU prefers candidates in the mid/late twenties. Doesn't consider any 30+ profile.
Similarly, the acceptance rate in NUS is less than 10% (the only other institute around the globe that has similar rate is Havard - If you ignore IIMA)

In Singapore, NUS is rated much higher than NTU for most programs including MBA.

I personally don't like NTU that much, it feels like an Indian Government University - in terms of its processes, infrastructures , etc (I travel a lot to NUS as it's one of our customers for some electronics products and have attended many Industry related seminars )

Got done with the interview. Lasted 20-25 mins. It didn't go as well as I'd hoped. For one, their net connection was weak so we had to shift to a telephonic interview after 2 mins into the interview. Also, they didn't ask me the "Why NUS?" question and I forgot to touch upon it :-(
The questions were:
*Walk me through...
*Goals
*Why MBA?
*How will you contribute to class?
*Scenario : a team member is not performing. What is your management style?
*Questions for them.

Hoping for the best.

In all the chaos of a telephonic interview I forgot to ask them their names. They were a male and female and both looked to be from Singapore. They were very friendly and pleasant.

How much time did they take to send you the admit after your interview?
