''Status Update Date: 2018-04-09''

but still says 'application being processed.'

not sure if it was there before...what does that mean?
Hello! Have you receive an offer from SMU biz already?

Hi ! I just went for the interview on 13/4. The interview is a discussion on an article, itíll be given prior to the interview. It is a group interview with about 5 people per group and 2 professors in the room. I can PM you a link on a pretty detailed experience by another person who attended it too this year!
hi! can pm me the link too?Thank u!

Hi, anyone here already went for NTU'S LMS interview and written test? How was the test and what type of questions did they ask? Any advice? Thanks!
Hi! My interview essay question was the same as orangenote. I was accepted as well. Mainly the question was why lingusitics and what career I wish to pursue in the future. He also asked if I have any questions for him (please be prepared for this. Impt! ). The prof who interviewed me did not focus on asking too many specific questions but he just let the conversation flow and tried to get a feel of my thought process.

Some advice I can give you is to

1. Know what career you wish to pursue in the future and how LMS can help you. Also read up on Lingusitics and what it entails.

2. Read up on their modules and internships they have, tell the interviewer how it is related to your career goals and how these can develop you in your future job etc

4. Leverage on your past experience in poly/Jc and how it relates to lingusitics (if possible). For example have you ever learnt another language? Itís a good time to talk about how it sparked your interest in linguistics.

ohno he didn't say that to me haha btw can i ask how were ur interviews like? like what qns did he ask?
I think there were 2 profs having history interview today so maybe yours was the other prof, all the best tho!

For mine he asked the usual kind of interview questions like why i wanted to take history, what i was going to do with a history degree etc. I also had a reading task where i had to read an article and he followed up by asking me questions on it!

Congrats on your SMU scholarship offer! Wanted to clarify, when you say that you were interviewed on 20 March and was offered "a week later", do you mean that you received scholarship offer, or did you mean admission offer? Thanks!!

P.S. Are you matriculating in 2018?
I received admission offer immediately after my interview. Scholarship offer came a week later. And yes will be matriculating this year

Hey guys, anyone from poly already got offer from NTU yet? Did you need to submit your final-sem results beforehand?

And if your outcome somehow fails to make it by email...can you also check your outcome on the admissions portal?
hey i just got an offer yesterday (16apr)! i submitted my final sem results the moment i received my results (before ntu offered me). theres a link at the portal for u to submit just the final sem's results.

not sure about the joint portal, but there is a downloadable pdf (offer letter) in the ntu admission portal (at the bottom row of the table thingy)

Hi there!! I was from the 13th Apr 9am slot and I received my offer yesterday at 5pm! But don't worry, because the some of my friends who went for earlier interviews received their offers a week later, and I've heard that they might even drag till 3 weeks later. Just be rest assured that SMU biz admits the most people (out of all 3 biz schools) ó 764! Have faith!
Hi!! can i know how was the interview?

I went for the interview on 13/4! Not yet sadly... i donít have much hopes as my interview wasnít that good imo. What about you?
Hu, just wanna tell u guys not to lose hope as everyone around me also received smu offers 1-3 days after interview so at that point in time I felt hopeless. Thankfully my offer came 20 days later! (SMU SOSS offer) So donít be too worried bout it. It may even drag up to 1 month++! All the best!
