Elsenoire, may I know which halls did you apply for? and what is your first choice?
Can't remember. I just know I avoided applying for two halls which I found out to be sports halls. Applied for single for all three.

Just out of curiosity, what's the failure rate like for housing admissions?

I guess you're referring to Eusoff and Temasek Halls right.

And were you active in your JC CCA?

Yea, I think Temasek was one of them, can't remember about Eusoff though. Wasn't active in CCA. Mine was like AV Crew so it was pretty much mundane. I took part more in writing newsletters for the school, organizing service learning activities between classes and providing tuition. Had around 5 or so things to write. Definitely cannot fight against those with entire lists of stuff but what I wrote should be more or less solid one. I'll just check in with them again, maybe apply and try for the late admissions one. Meanwhile, I'll just prepare to join the legion of cross-country commuters.

What do you usually bring when checking in that time? Do you bring a whole luggage bag of stuff on the day of checking in or usually brought in later on? Also, what do they provide for the halls/residences? Got pillow/bedsheet etc or need to bring them yourself?

Haha, my advice: on day 1, check in, look at the place, bring some cleaning stuff (cloth, bucket, detergent) to clean the place up. decide on what u need.

day 2, bring your stuff in set everything up, etc.

if u attempt to bring your stuff on day 1, you end up with some stuff which u may not need. and you have to make a second trip to bring stuff that u didnt bring the first time around.

i got rh in 09/10 sem 2, applied for a single room, but in the end they gave me double without warning. First day, made a mistake of bringing the heaviest stuff, fridge, speakers etc. In the end speakers also use damn little, because dont want to disturb room mate etc, wasted so much effort bringing them around...

Oh, because if didn't bring anything first time, I scared 2nd time not enough to bring everything, like all the stuff + some monitors and speakers.

Clothes can hang-dry where in your room's windows? I usually hand-wash my clothes.

just use the washing machine to wash your clothes but dun put your nice clothes into the dryer...air dry them.

but once you stay in hall long enough, you'll just throw everything into washing machine and dryer.
