hey abcde,

i have no idea regarding how the selection process goes, so sorry what i know is all applications will be forwarded to the seniors in the respective halls, and they will decide who to pick. so it does sound probable that say, the sports hall, select people who are strong in sports to join them. however i think they will also welcome people from non-sports backgrounds, otherwise wun their hall be very boring

i don't think they will take into account the distance from home that much. probably more on whether you attended their orientation camps and whether you have seniors or friends in the hall who can help pull you in.

zyvroklsayt,

HMMM.. your 10-year-crush living in raffles hall or something?

hey minmim,

oh no that i have no idea!

HUH. you guys already know your results?! that's duper fast! i havent even submotted my application!

OHH. PGPR's not a hall, it's residences, so they actually dun participate in IHG and dun have that many activities. it's okay, you can still take the internal shuttle bus to visit your 10-year-crush at Raffles Hall. *runs away*

Anyone else applying?

Well... maybe it'll comfort you that there are some of us with no other choice than to stay there. :P... ie that's the least financially-draining option we have. :P
