    I'm looking for any input from US citizens, either who applied to or attend Yale-NUS.

    I'm concerned about financial aid and/or the work bond requirement. If she is admitted to Yale, my daughter will get a full scholarship, including room, board, tuition, books, study abroad, travel expenses. I think NUS would be more expensive, am I right? I talked to her about the work bond (and I know you can buy your way out of it, right?) She is against committing to any work bond whatsoever.

    Also, a Yale-NUS degree is not a degree issued by Yale University, is it?

    Finally, my daughter is looking at liberal arts colleges, which is why she is leaning towards Yale, a very LACish Ivy. She has visited Singapore before and is concerned about free speech issues. The Socratic method, argument and critical thinking are fundamental at Yale in New Haven or any liberal arts college. I don't see how this can occur with Singapore's human rights/speech issues.
