did u think of hunting for accomodations with peers who went with u or u went alone?

250 is jus the basic rent alone?
regarding the accommodation with peers, it was a little complicated, so i shant elaborate here. but i think that staying with friends got pros got cons la. u went for SEP to (presumably) interact with non-sgreans, so u might as well have an intl exposure on on-campus living

250 is the rent, and it includes utilities like water + heating (very impt for -20 deg temperature!). my landlord was extremely nice - word is that he is alr very very rich, and doesnt sweat the small stuff. he also brought me out shopping when my existing luggage broke.

I think application closed already. If I'm not wrong need to apply 1 year before is it?

Sian... I think cannot go Japan already, it's prefered 1 year there... but I can only apply for AY12/13 now... then when I come back left half a sem only, no time to do the 2 sem project if I do this...

Sian... I think I will try for 1 sem exchange application to Japan next year for 12/13, see can or not.. 1 year really too much effect on my core modules.

reopen meaning next round or 1st round again?

if next round, means it's leftover unis from the 1st few rounds i think

Sian... reopen also pointless for me already... The NUS-CMU program's 3.5 year in NUS is a real PITA. I don't mind extending 1 more year for a full number... like this how to go for 1 year exchange... Only got 2 options if want 1 year exchange:
1. Just chiong now, go in 3/4th sem, meaning after this sem go 1 year exchange, but dunno whether not knowing enough Japanese will get pwned, or Japanese 3 is enough to just learn there.
2. Go in 5/6th sem, chiong finish the 2 sem project module before sem 5...
Both options doesn't look very nice...
