Default Acceptance & Appeal

Hey all,

I have not been offered any places by any of the Unis. However, no rejection letter has been issued yet. This confuses me. We are into the appeal period yet I have no idea what my application statuses are. Are there any cases where they hold your applications all the way into 2nd window and reject you from there after, w/o a chance of appealing? Or will they reject you and you have to appeal for the 2nd window?

kindly advise

Nope, they finish issuing all the acceptances from the first window of acceptance on 31st May. Then you know you're rejected and can appeal. (But some people will know they have been rejected earlier.)

My application is also 'still processing' for NUS. Is 31st May a tad too late for us to make our choices?

My first choice was Biz. I went for the DA interview and is currently waiting for the results! I'm hoping that they release the results by this week. At the least, we still have the weekend to think through and make a more informed decision. How about you?

I realised that alot of people who went for the DA interview are not informed of their results yet! Yup, hopefully it's either today or tomorrow, because it's just a week more before the deadline! I applied for medicine through EIS, managed to get to the interview and essay stage, butI have no news yet! My second choice is FASS, and I dont know what's taking them so long!

Perhaps you are being placed on the waiting-list for medicine. Don't worry, your grades are sufficient to get you into FASS (which is my 2nd choice too). Hopefully, we will get our results soon! All the Best!

The problem is, there are a number of people with their second choice as FASS, and still have not received any news! So I dont know if I'm being considered for Medicine or FASS! But right now, I just want an answer from NUS! Hahahaha!

Yeah SAME here! I just need an ANSWER instead of being left hanging.
