Dude, chill out man.

You confirm get in with those grades.

Be a bit more sensitive to others.. there are many applicants with As & Bs on the edge of their seat. You sound like a student who got 99/100 for a test and is emo-ing that its not good enough.

On second thought, I could be a bit more friendly with that reply.

Okay try this :

The NUS School of Biz does not process applicants until the deadline is over. This is because admission is highly competitive, and they are reluctant to give an offer to even a AAA/B student, when there are many more AAA/A students yet to apply.

There are also those AAA/AAA students who have expressed interested in Biz by listing it in their 2nd to 5th choice. NUS prioritizes UAS over Choice so as not to disadvantage any student. (i.e An Applicant with first choice is Law, second is Biz.) A seat will be reserved for this applicant pending his interview for Law. This delays the processing time for those borderline cases.

Still, with AAA/ABB you are way above the benchmark. You will be among the first batch to receive acceptance.

As a reference, I received my NUS Biz offer on 6 April in 2011.

Worrying about not getting in is like the Top Student worrying he will drop out of school.

Sorry if I offended anyone :/ My friends tell me that I tend to be a little paranoid (make that VERY). I have a friend who already got her biz acceptance letter so that made me really jumpy.
