Hi friends , I do concur with the views expressed in the latest posts reg the employability aspect further to the course. Lets not be too much bugged about whats in store. Its a fact that an LLM from anywhere is never a guarantee for a job. This will just be a value addition to whatever we possess , increasing our potential for future employability and nothing else. For the guys with some domain experience the fruits of such a prestigious course shall show up soon while for the freshers it could well take some time. But be rest assured that a degree from such a prestigious institution alongwith the money spent herein shall never go waste but would rather be a trump card for the future. Its more about an international exposure and strong networking that shall be our boon later. Even back home there are a lot of positives on the economic front and let the 'Make in India' campaign actually bear fruit. There shall be a plethora of opportunities awaiting all of us back home.
So Guys cheer up and with a highly positive frame of mind lets start off with a bang and do our best...the rest shall follow suit....Congratz once again to all those who have decided to join and all the best to the ones in waiting.
Finally @Pulkit , hats off to you for all those valuable inputs reg the course. Truly commendable..

Never even thought of the sea route, was thinking of taking the road, but just in case I come sailing in, I hope the maritime boys here are ready to meet me at the port just in case I get into trouble.....keep your maritime handbooks ready boys

On a more serious note anyone who gets any scolarship update or for that matter an update as regards admission offers, please do post it here so that everyone here continues to stay in the loop and connect, if necessary.
Cheers

Hey cruising along together to NUS will be fun...Atleast we can be contended with a scholar ship instead of scholarships , since the chances of the latter luks xtremly bleak.
@pulkit, for all the good things you have done for this group , this maritime guy will surely be there at Port to fish you out of troubled waters in case you choose the sea route.

It's done then, by sea it is, a sure shot scholar-ships as you have so eloquently stated. We can finalise our sail itinerary as per convenience, plenty of time to go for that, time for some sailing lessons then

Congratulations @awasthykusum on your admit and to all those who have sent their acceptances. Would be great to catch up with everyone in August, especially the active participants here.
No word on scholarship yet though.

no news of scholarships at all and seems like the stipulated 2 weeks is almost up for most of us?

anyway NUS did say somewhere that there's no official budget or any sort of allocation towards handing out such merit-based scholarships and it's totally up to their discretion, so we can assume that they could also choose not to give out any at all!

That's a fair point, they certainly cannot be attached with any obligation to give scholarships merely for the sake of it, it's a matter entirely within their discretion.

Did anyone of you apply with TOEFL score? Somewhere I read they do take into consideration that score for scholarship, not sure though.

However, there are approx 180-200 seats for masters and not all of us who got through are in this forum.

@lawyer widt law,
Your right on both counts. As regards, the question of all those admitted and eventually joining the course not being participants here is concerned, the same is a pretty safe assumption to make and unfortunately there is nothing the participants here can do about it.
Coming to the question of TOEFL scores, I, myself had availed of an exemption and them granting one by implication means that they consider your proficiency to be well satisfactory as per their standards and therefore during consideration the same would be and should be given due weight. A view to the contrary I.e. Those who have submitted a TOEFL or any other analogous score standing at a better footing would be self contradictory and defeat the very purpose of them enabling students to seek the benefit of a waiver itself. Further, a lack of mention as to the non-eligibility or any disadvantage accruing to those availing language exemption has not been provided for, which certainly would have been so had there existed a disadvantage qua scholarship consideration.
This is at least my interpretation on the subject and other members feel free to contribute and offer a different perspective.
Cheers

@ Pulkit...Dude you scare me with your innocuous interpretation. Let me get back home, after a couple of beers I might be able to interpret what you intend.

Meanwhile - "Colonial Colossal of the night silhouetted against the star spangled sky." A famous ship sank and the author surmised it in these lines. So gulp some beer, because 2 weeks are over and Scholar SHIP sank too!!
