    @hanu11

    SAT I: 1510 (800 Math, 710 English) (2 sittings)
    ACT: 33 (1 sitting)
    Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.9
    AP: AP Literature (5), AP Language (4), AP US History (4), AP Studio Art-Drawing (4), AP Environmental Science (4), AP Calculus AB (4), AP US Government (5)
    Senior Year Course Load: AP Comparative Government, AP Psychology, Beginning Jewelry Design, Chinese III, AP Statistics, AP Biology, Honors Geology, Honors Astronomy
    ECs: school musical, choir, summer internship for a professional theatre company, summer volunteer camp counselor, mock trial (regional champs, state champs, a top 5 team at nationals), national honors society, visual arts, recreational figure skating, some others…
    Common App essay: 10/10? I chose the identity prompt. I was proud of what I wrote, I think it said a lot about me, my history, and my aspirations.
    Counselor’s recommendation: 7/10? I come from a large school where it is really hard my counselor to write specifics about her students.
    Teacher recommendation 1 & 2: 10/10 I really enjoyed the teachers that I asked and I think they wrote strong letters.
    Strengths: I go to a local but competitive math and science magnet school for my STEM classes. I have had a challenging curriculum throughout high schoool and strong recommendation letters confirming this. I feel like my voice through my writing is very genuine.
    Weaknesses: My standardized testing scores may not be as high as others applying to very competitive schools. My GPA and by extension, class rank, has fallen this last year because I decided to take some challenging courses outside of my comfort zone. I have many extracurriculars but only a couple that I've participated in for a long time, and I have no leadership roles.

    @achilleees @sghkg8 @bsb4389 @DEEPUSS hello guys! I had a question regarding the interviews: does it matter who conducts it? as in, whether it is an admissions rep or a currents student? do admissions rep only interview people they're serious about or are considering for merit schols and leave the likely rejected ones to current students? please help I'm really stressed about this yikes

    @ts2807 interviews are assigned randomly, every interviewer has the same amount of clout :)

    I submitted my application on Jan 15th. Yale-NUS has stated that it will take approximately 2-4 weeks to get an interview invite.

    Had my interview recently. I would recommend anyone having an interview
    to have at least 2 mock interviews before the actual one. If y’all have specific questions you can ask me.

    Questions were the normal, but if you are like me and have trouble articulating it’s best to make bullet points for each question. Apart from paying attention to @msnerdyyy ‘s advice, I suggest you really dig deep into what you intend to major in.

    I have not received any email for my Round 1 interview yet. It is a little scary. Are they still sending an invitation for the interview or it is over now?

    So when I was signing up for the interview, the online dates for interview slots stopped around 13th feb. But according to last year's CC you are still eligible until they tell you that you get an email from YNC that you are rejected.

    Hey @GullibleBoi ! Honestly, my stats are fairly mediocre. I did pretty averagely for the A levels ( ABB/BA ), but I had some extracurriculars in winning a few MUN competitions and joining a volunteer organisation in a research role (which I wouldn't say is a lot of extracurriculars!). I did, however, put in a lot of effort into having a thoughtful and genuine essay, and I suspect this to be what got me an interview!

    @Hero127t I think they close interview invites by 15/2 (two weeks from application deadline)! But there might still be a chance :-) best of luck!
