Guys someone plz reply to this query ASAP:

If I am submitting referee reports (recommendation letters) by post (along with the remaining supporting documents), do the referee details in the online application form (name, email address etc) have to be filled or is it only for online recommendations? In that case, should I leave it blank and will the online application get submitted if it is blank?

hey smack,

good that you submitted the app on time. i am also a prospective candidate.

i'm not too sure whether one can send the supporting docs through email. i couldn't see anywhere in the application webpage. for interview location, adcom will ask you the preference once you are selected for interview.

can you pls clarify whether i have to submit my application and then generate the email for recommendations and then submit the recos, all by 20th?

best wishes!

A couple of days back they sent a mail if that you completed r application by 20th and got selected they would invite you for a face-to-face interview at Mumbai and Bangalore.

I have completed the application. Hurried by recommenders to complete the referee reports.

Query # 1

Now I want to submit the supporting documents by mail. I have scanned the originals in B&W; so that the size of the files helps easy uploading. To which mail Id should I send the documents?

Query # 2

Nowhere in the application they asked for interview location preference. I gave my permanent home address i.e in Karnataka but I am currently working in Mumbai. How do I tell them my interview location preference?

Thanks in advance:xmas:

Hai Abhishek!

Thanks for the reply. I'm just finishing up my essays. So I will be applying in the next two weeks. *fingers crossed* I hope that it's good news for me as well.

Thanks.

Hi MS,

Well whether you will have a face to face interview or a telephone interview all depends on the availability of someone to take a face to face interview in your country. In my case, since they had an MBA fair, they invited people for face to face interview. Same in case of some who are having an interview in Hyderabad. It just so happens that a professor is currently in Hyderabad. Otherwise, you will have a telephonic interview.

All the best.

Thanks,
Abhishek.

Hai!

First up Congratulations for making it!

I am also applying for the MBA program at NUS this year. I scored 750 on the GMAT. One question I've is whether they hold the interviews in India, or on the telephone. I know this is kind of a weird question to pop up first, but I hope you wouldn't mind me bugging you again with other qs.

Thanks for starting this thread!

As I mentioned before, excellent academics alone do not impress NUS adcom. They also look for good extra-currs along with the academics. In interviews, you will get asked a plethora of questions. They will be about what you did during your years of job experience. They also like to have intelligent conversations about current events and topics. The questions will also validate your claims (about extra-currs) in such a way that you may not realize the purpose of the question till after your interview.

PS. You can use the "Thank" button to express your thanks. :satisfie:
