Nopes ... no discussion about the result date.
From the past experience, it can be anywhere between 4 days to 4 weeks :)

I am certainly not the right person to evaluate your profile.
Still based on my experience, there has to be an outstanding element in the profile.
With just 2 years of work ex and a 670 GMAT, you need to have amazing application.
The strong GPA will certainly help, but it will depend on how you represent your work ex.

1. Asked about the last year's interview
2. Elevator pitch
3. Questions about my startup. Quiet a lot of them infact. Around 5 - 6 questions. How will you manage while your MBA. About market strategies, about products etc.
4. Questions about my extra curricualrs
5. Again questions about the startup
6. What has improved from the last application
7. My views on any international happening. Talked about Paris attacks.
8. My views about the role of media in the news.
9. Any business leader I would want to meet over a cup of coffee
10. Where would you like to work
11. Questions about GMAT.
12. Why should we take you in 3 sentences.
13. Any questions for us

In all the interview lasted for 35 - 40 minutes.

Hi

Can someone pls help me with the third essay for NUS regarding the problems faced by the community. I am not able to understand what they require.
Are they looking for the problems such as social issues in general or specifically problems related to the business world.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi,

The question states
"What is the most critical problem facing your organisation or community? What recommendations would you make to deal with this problem?"

In my opinion, better select a community problem where you think you can make a tangible difference - be it any key challenge related to your workplace or any social problem impacting your immediate community. I think the key should be rather than giving a generic response to a generic problem, give specific pointers on what you would do to counter the problem.

In my case, i chose a workplace problem, and elaborated on multi-prong approach to tackle the problem.

Hope this helps.

I received the call first and then a follow-up email about interview details. Interviews were to the point and were not easy for me :) I faltered on a couple of questions.

Hi Everybody,

How hard is the constraint for 300 words viewed by the admissions department?

For the essay - Considering the vision and values of NUS Business School and a typical NUS MBA class, tell us (in 300 words) what makes you a good candidate for admission.

I am finding it hard to get the essay to be wrapped up in 300 words. I am exceeding the count by 88 words.

However, when I try to save the essay it is allowing me to save the essay, as I have not exceeded 3500 characters (which is the other constraint).

Can somebody guide me on whether my application would be disqualified if i exceed the number of words from 300 to 3800 (even If I am within the character count allowed?)

From what i know, staying within 5-10% of word count range suggested for any essay should be OK. However, in your case, exceeding word count by almost 30% looks like a stretch. The admissions team have trained eyes to easily figure out the approx. word count from the length of passage. I can't comment on the disqualification part, however, i do believe that won't be looked upon favorably by Adcom.

Hello All,

Can someone please help me with what financial documents should be submitted along with the application to NUS? I am planning to fund my MBA with education loan and some savings. My savings and annual salary do not add up to total cost incurred for MBA. What should I do in this case?
