Hi. I have a GMAT score of 670, 3 years work experience in my family real estate business and an engineering degree with a 6.67 CGPA. Based on this information what are my chances of getting into NUS? Should I consider applying?

Hi Ketan, Welcome on GMATClub!

NUS is one of the leading asian business schools and is extremely competitive. Based on you GMAT score your chances of acceptances are very low (see this acceptance analysis of previous NUS applicants); however, MBA application process isn't about only numbers. GMAT is just one component of your application and other factors such as your story, essays, work experience, etc. are equally important. You may want to go through our MBA application guide to understand MBA application process in detail and learn how to create a compelling story for your BSchool application. https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-gmat-clu ... 23494.html

Hi Narenn

Is this for the 2018 intake?

I can still see application deadlines for last year's class (2017-18) on the NUS website.

I submitted my application on 20th Sept, and got a confirmation mail as well. I think the applications are very much open.

ajchauhan7 : when we click on the application number in the first page while registering , one pdf is automatically downloaded in the system. I was referring to that pdf .

Guys, I can't find the "Introduce yourself to MBA classmates" question in the online application. Can you see it?

NUS Essay Analysis by Accepted.com

1. Please answer ONE of the following short essay prompts. (300 words)

a. I am passionate about…
b. My greatest challenge has been…
c. My biggest failure was ….

All three of these questions are opportunities to share an interesting experience from your life. Passion comes through with differentiating details (did you compete in 10Ks every weekend? Did you turn \$500 in high school summer earnings into an investment portfolio worth thousands?). Challenges are overcome with drive, tenacity, and commitment. Failures are learning experiences and launch pads for subsequent successes. Share an example here that will help the admission committee see your individuality come alive.

2. Briefly describe your immediate post-MBA career goal including your industry, function and country of choice and how have your prior experiences motivated and prepared you to pursue these goals? (300 words)

All MBA programs want their students to be pleased with the employment they find and the career trajectory ahead of them after graduation. Applicants must demonstrate in this essay that they know what they can expect to achieve within five years of graduating so that the admissions office will believe you are realistically driven.

3. If there is anything else you would like to share with the Admissions Committee that was not covered in your application, please include here. (300 words)

The first two essays were short, so there is almost certainly more in your background: additional areas of leadership, influence, and impact, for example. While this optional space may certainly be used to explain a weakness or flaw in your background, I highly recommend shining the spotlight on an area of strength in the process: poor grades do not have to stand on their own when you can demonstrate that you spent your undergraduate education in significant extracurricular leadership roles, for example.

4. (Only applicable to re-applicants) Please provide an update on any new aspects of your professional, international, academic or personal profile that would not have been included in your previous application. Please also explain your motivation for re-applying to NUS. (Maximum: 300 words)
