i'm above the 10th percentile and i got rejected???
1) If you went for interview, you probably did badly. During my time, I was the only one in my group to make it.

2) If you didn't go for interview, IS was probably your 3rd choice or something. They don't take people who put them as a dumping ground.

I got a called from SMU IS that im shortlisted for an interview. Damn stunned because my gpa is kinda low and way out of the 10th percentile.
Congratulations, now go work on case analysis and estimation questions. Be vocal but give others a chance.

Hmm one think I can think the reason why you were rejected is because they evaluate an applicant holistically. If you did not pass the holistic evaluation you will not be shortlisted for the interview.

SMU is becoming stringent nowadays due to demand exceeding supply. If i recalled only 1 out of 7 or 8 students are accepted into the university. Admission rate of the different schools I am not sure.

well, a few things

a) i applied literally minutes before deadline. i was overseas and could not access net (death of relative). i realized that i didn't talk about my CCA stuff like council and stuff.

b) i only got my rejection letter AFTER i called smu to ask about my status (coincidence?)

c) do i stand a good chance in appeal if i document my other achievements? i really wanna get into smu!!!

Not sure about appeal chance since you are not invited for interview. I think the appeal only apply for those who sat for the interview and appeal for 2nd chance.

But no harm trying to appeal.

Not advice, but hope this helps
My friend went for LMS interview last week. Haven received news till now. She got a gpa of 3.73
Wow. The IGP must have really shot up this year. HSS IGP is always in flux. Because of their small intake, their IGP can quickly change each year depending on demand. I would recommend that you appeal to soci since its intake is about 50 students more than LMS. So the chances are higher.
Wow joey! She applied through DA?

Thanks Havok!!

Hey man,all the best to you but may I know when you went for the BBA DA and how many days did it take for it to have been processed. I went for the DA last thursday and the application is still processing, thanks so much!

I went for the DA interviews on the first and third week of may. No change in status until this morning.

*I called admissions earlier and they said there's an outcome but it would take 1-2 days for it to be reflected in NUS and the joint admissions portal.

Hi was wondering if anybody can help me out here

Gpa 3.58
From sp biz admin
O level 9pts

Have been trying to apply to all 3 locals uni for 2 yrs for either biz or mass comm but cant seem to even score an interview, even for smu which I'm especially puzzled by. I had like testimonials and portfolio of some articles ive written before in hopes of getting to ntu comms this yr but i still got rejected without interview too. Was wondering if anyone had been in a similar situation as me or has been successful in appealing to either of the unis for comms or biz?
