Hi, i wanted some help about the "financial supporting" documents required to be sent in for NUS. My father will be financing my degree, so i wanted to know what exact document or types of documents will be required. Will the previous year's income tax return suffice? or something else? also, at the present, we do not have the required fee in liquid assets, do how much has to be shown as present in the account. can someone please help me out on this. it's urgent

P.S. - this is my first application so do not know what is the required document. i have read details on their website but it gives nothing specific.

yes, i too want to know the same.

any suggestions, anybody???

and by the way, is it compulsory to upload the documents for "financial supporting" for application to be considered complete?

BTW Hareesh, I see you got 750 GMAT total with the same break up as mine. When did you take the GMAT?

July 2013, meaning in a span of 7 months the GMAT score of people has improved.

yes, but considering the low level of involvement of NUS current students/advisors in this thread, it seems as if the NUS community is a very closed one.
it has slightly dampened my enthusiasm about the school, although I am still very interested in the program.

Hi all,

Today is the deadline for the Scholarship qualifying period.
I invite all applicants to update their app status.
In the meantime I am working to update the first post with latest career stats and further school info.

If anybody has any questions/suggestions, feel free to get in touch with me.

Regards

Can someone please advise what records do you have to update under Academic Qualifications, will the undergraduate degree details suffice or do we have to out in our 12th and 10th standard marks as well?
Also, if my one of my referee submits his recommendation tomorrow or the day after; i.e. after the 1st round deadline, will that automatically roll over my application to round 2 and disqualify me from the scholarship round?

I have only entered my undergrad details and my app submitted fine. It didn't show anything incomplete and if the AdComs do require the 10th/12th details I guess they can contact anytime later for it.

I talked to my referee and he said that the NUS mail he got mentions that link given for submitting recommendation is valid till 2nd March. So 1 or 2 days should be fine. But do check with your referee as well, just in case.

Thanks ganeshjagtap. My recommender has told me that the link is valid till 24-Feb. I've sent an email to NUS as well saying that there might be a delay in the recommendation and it might come in after the Round 1 deadline. Let's see what they come back with.

I have updated the first post with the essay questions (I know it's very late, I just started) and a link to the latest employment stats (which I think many would be interested in).

Now, I require help from the applicants who have already been interviewed: Please share your interview experience folks.

And as always, any suggestions or questions are very welcome.

Thanks! I have already uploaded in the 'others' section and submitted my app but just wanted to confirm if official copies are also required for application to be complete.

Just sharing my exp
Prog -NUS PT MBA
GMAT -660

Admission submitted 1st week of Jan , Interview call came in quite fast after all referee letter went in .

Interviewers - One of them was a prof and second interviewer was a Adcom

Questions

Why should we take you in ?
What sort of leader are you ?
Time when you exhibited leadership ?
Share a situation where I had to deal with a difficult customer ?
How does your company brand yourself to customer ?( I am working at an MNC , question was from Prof who is a marketing prof at NUS )
What is career goals ? What skills does you require to attain that position?

Though the questions where straight forward , my initial feeling was I did not do well .
But just in time for CNY holidays got the email offering the a place at the PT MBA prog. ( about 10 days after the interview )

FT MBA admission exercise I believe is going to be slightly more prolonged due to more applications and more criteria for assessments (eg:diversity)

Hope above information is helpful , Good luck with your MBA application .
