We need doctors who are compassionate and not hypocritical
my first impression was "shock" to see that my intiative would trigger the term "hypocritical" but i understand and agree with the direction you are coming from, i reflected whether my true intentions were purely one sided before applying

hmm, hope NUS starts sending out its notifications(in general) soon, no news somewhat feels like bad news when the date for portfolio admission on their website seems so close

hey, cheer up 44564651!

if you don't get into NUS, you can still go to Australia etc if you have the money! UMelb and Monash are particularly good and popular for medicine.

It'd prolly cost like nearly a million bucks to study medicine overseas, including expenses, accomodation, entertainment etc etc

that might be true for UK. Australia is MUCH more affordable. if you need the stats, I can ask my army of friends studying in Australia hahahah. But IIRC, the tuition fees for Medicine at Monash costs about the same as a normal undergrad education in America per year
