Heya guys, me M1 this year going on M2. I got in via waitlist.

For all those still waiting, NUS called me on my phone around june-july period, while I was on the mrt. Said they had a vacancy and if I was interested, and gave me several days to make the decision.

By then I had already accepted NTU med and was already preparing for matriculation. (That very afternoon their enthusiatic and awesome orientation camp commitee pranked called me as part of their orientation activities, but sadly I had decided to go to NUS. )

So in conclusion to all those wondering,
No, your acceptance of any courses does not disqualify you from the NUS med waitlist.
Waitlists have the power to "pluck" you from whichever course you've already accepted.

Hey guys!

I plan to use the EIS route. So I was wondering what are my chances? I am not a national athlete or sportswoman or school something. Would that significantly lower my chances of getting in?

For the people who successfully got in via EIS, what were your achievements? At the very most, I have been Chairperson of my CCA, had won EAGLES and my school's highest CCA Award. Also, I have quite a number of attachments lined up and some ad-hoc sessions of volunteering, although I am a long-term volunteer of TTSH. I don't have anything fancier than all that tho.

I really would appreciate your help in telling me how your experiences were like and how your portfolios looked like.

Thank you

EIS route is v difficult and v few people enter through it, usually those who successfully got in through EIS are national players, have outstanding leadership and extracurricular portfolios, and whose family member is a doctor. And even so, they usually miss the COP of medicine by just a bit. By a bit i mean 85 lowest for your IGP. Almost 99% of the applicants (normal route and EIS) have done at least 2 work shadowing and tons of volunteering so that wouldn't make you stand out. Unless your volunteering helped raised funds overseas or set up some hospital or something then you may stand a chance. I have 1 friend who entered through EIS, he was an international chemistry olympiad medallist representing singapore and also a national shooter. He was from Raffles JC and scored 85 for his A levels. He applied through EIS and got it during his NS days. Judging from what you said about yourself, i dont think you stand a chance, sry. Consider overseas?

I think the number of people who succeeded in the EIS route is very small and may not be in this forum. However, some may be able to offer advice to you if you are able to share more about yourself - your results and achievements/ special contributions.
