May I know why you choose Real Estate as first choice. Mind share with us. I tried searching about Real Estate degree and its career opportunity online. But not much.

most of them just looks at the cut-off grade and presume that Real estate is low-ranked course.
I accepted NTU-accountancy.
Lol, i believe that there is something wrong with NUS application system this year.
My friends got AAAA/A B for GP, and C for PW ( 4 H2 ), and he's offered EEE in NUS, which is his 4th choice, 1st choice is Pharmacy, 2nd and 3rd choice is Accountancy and Biz Administration ,yeah so i guess u're not the only one who's disappointed with their offer.
I wrote them a letter and this is their reply

Applicants are considered for admission based on academic merit and open competition. As such, your chances of admission are dependent on the type of competition surrounding you.

The selection committee has reviewed your application carefully, taking into consideration your recent results. However, competition for admission to the University has been extremely keen, with several students presenting very good results.

You have been considered for admission to the courses you have listed in the order of your preference. If you had satisfied the requirement for the courses listed as your first or second choices, you would have been offered one of those courses.

We understand your disappointment in the outcome of your application.

You may still submit an appeal against the admission decision of NUS, please submit an online appeal from 25 May to 2 June 2011 (please refer to http://www.nus.edu.sg/oam/apply/loca...ppeal.html#top for the appeal procedures).

hello! thats really good grades that your friend had gotten. i, too, dont know how come your friend had got rejected by pharmacy. because for me, i know someone who got accepted into pharmacy with grades of AAAA (4 H2s) , PW A, GP D and that translates to UAS of 86.25 which is the same as your friend.

yeah, he is. I know it's a bit unfair for foreigner, but his grade is just too good. And beside pharmacy, nus biz school also rejects him. Btw, he chooses DDP in biz and accountancy in SMU
