Yups. FASS for NUS is my 4th choice. I guess they r still sorting out the 1st 3 choices for the time being.

Hi Heliconia,

I have no received any news from NUS either, even though FASS is my first choice. I submitted my application on 15 March, if I remember correctly haha. I wonder if they have rejected me already lmao.

Just an update: I received a text from NUS to check on my application status and they told me I got shortlisted for Architecture.. which was my following choice after NUS FASS. I suppose I have been rejected from FASS lmao.

@electocuted:
Isn't the cutoff for architecture higher than fass? congrats on the update of your application with nus! I have friends that are trying for architecture but still no news as of now! All the best :-)

I don't think I will be going for that, actually. The Big Three are still calling up/sending out offers, and I heard SMU just shortlisted the second batch of students for interviews/offers (idk where my friend got that information though haha). For now, I would actually go by no news=good news mentality. I know people with FASS as their first (or only) choice who still haven't received any news yet as well.
