When does NUS start interviews? I understand it's a rolling process, so around when were the early interview invites sent last year? In the application-deadline page, they haven't yet updated the dates.

Hi Narenn,

I am planning to apply in R1. I can't understand one thing - Why all forums related to Singapore schools so silent? As per FT rankings, both these schools are doing pretty good. I can't understand why there is not much craze about these schools on GMAT Club. In fact the information about these schools on internet is also much lesser as compared to other schools of similar ranking.

I do understand that R1 deadline is still few months away but historically there hasn't been much following of both NUS and NTU. Will be great if you can shed some light.

Hi,
Are you aware by when can we expect a decision if we submit the NUS application in October? NTU's 1st round decision is mentioned in December, however, am not able to find any such details for NUS. I am confused if I should apply in two simultaneously.

Hey there, all i know is that NUS has rolling applications so you could expect a call by December if you are targeting both the schools

Surprisingly, they haven't updated the dates on the website yet.
But they are mentioned on the application page-

Submit your COMPLETED application by :

Round 1 (31 Jan 2019) - $50 (50% waiver for early submission)
Round 2 (1 Feb - 31 Mar 2019) - $100

Bump!
It'll be really helpful if somebody can shed some light. Is the job scenario really difficult for international students?

Thanks a ton. I'm trying to set up my account online. What did you select for this drop down? Are these the only two options? :

Even I got confused about this. We have to select only if we want to apply for either of these.
Otherwise, for marketing, finance etc we have to leave it blank. I'll have to search the link where it's mentioned. But am sure as I recently read that.

Placement scenario, according to FT rankings, at both NUS and NTU is really good - 96% of NUS graduates attained jobs within 3 months of graduations. And frankly I would refrain from relating the activity on a specific business school forum to the employment scenario in that school. Now, why Singapore school forums are so silent, if you look at the previous discussions closely, activity in these forums generally start from the 1st/2nd week of Oct. It's probably the time when applicants start focussing on their apps.

So this is one of my target schools. I am planning to set up a WhatsApp group to interact with other applicants on the admissions process as we approach the deadline.

Do send me a DM with your number and we can get connected.
