Hi STyle,
All the best to you as well, hopefully it will be well worth the wait, around 2 weeks or so more to go i think before they start rolling out the results

Can you guys tell me where you find this "physical application verified" status? Is there an online application tracker? All I get so far is an email from NUS attaching the checklist and saying that my application is complete dating back to December 22. Am I missing something?

Hi k818,
Just go this link:-
https://inetapps.nus.edu.sg/GDA2/Home.aspx
And then put in your email and pwd, once you've done that, there will be a tab on the extreme left of the screen with the heading "Manage Applications", just click on it, which would then reveal your application status at the bottom of the page and from there you would be able to see under the heading "Status" as regards the current status of your application.
Hope this helps and lemme know if there is any other query

I applied to the Corporate and Financial Law program. Do we know when we should hear other than by late March/early April?

If I'm not mistaken if you only apply to one program then you're automatically considered for the general LL.M program, right?

Hi k818,
Yes you are right, even if you've just applied for a single programme your still considered for the general one. As far as a tentative date is concerned, I had written them a mail a few days back and received a non-committal reply from their end saying/re-iterating "end of March/early April" timeline, so it's impossible to predict with certainty any particular date. Let's just hope as and when they do come in, they are favorable to say the least, so all the best to you and of course to everyone else who's in the same boat.

Found this in a 2013 post, it's a rejection e-mail posted by an applicant in which NUS also states the broad considerations they take into account while deciding your application:-

Application for LL.M Programme - Academic Year 2013/2014

The Admissions Committee at the NUS Faculty of Law has deliberated on your application for our LL.M programme. We are very sorry to inform you that your application has been unsuccessful.

We receive many more applications than we can admit each year, and the competition this year has been particularly keen. As such, we are unable to accommodate all who apply to us. You may like to know that in reaching our decision, we took into account various factors, including the following: the applicant's academic performance at the undergraduate level, the level of English proficiency, the professors' letters of recommendation, extra-curricular activities and any internship or work experience. Overall, the competition posed by other applicants is a determinative factor.

We are very sorry to bear this piece of news, and we hope that you will be successful in your applications to other institutions.

It remains for us to thank you for your interest in our programme.

Best regards,
Graduate Admissions
Faculty of Law
National University of Singapore

Hope this helps

Yes, I have seen this post too. "The competition posed by other applicants is a determinative factor" is what really matters, as I understand. I have seen the statistics of graduate students enrolled each year. Competition is really strong. In addition, take a look at number of views of our posts ))).

I was just generally checking the posts from previous batches and if the trends for the last few years are any indication, we can safely assume that the results won't probably be out before the 1st week of April. So let's just wait and watch

Hey Navi,
As I had posted earlier, the only response I have received from them in pursuance to my mail is the standard reply that they will release the results by end of March/early April. In fact, they re-iterated the same yesterday to a friend of mine who was also enquiring about it. Beyond that there has been no further progress to speak of.
Nonetheless, all the very best to you and hope you soon get to hear from them. Good luck and if possible stay in loop through this post so that all of us can update each other
