The Chosen One and Another?

Okay, it has been months since we had our Chosen Eights. And now, it's out. On 18th of June, we all knew which one is our Chosen One, including me. And the outcome is:

Local University: Biomedicine USM

Singapore: Science NUS(aiming Biomedical Science major)

So, it is quite a tough decision. I think and think and think again... Wondering which one will give me what I wanted. Then I got some advice from seniors, friends, parents, adults...etc. It was actually a very painful decision. Studying in local definitely can save many money but I might not be able to experienced the exposure to wide field of knowledge... and maybe ending up as only a lab assistant. Studying in NUS might need me to pay more, but I can learn many things and there are more chances to achieve my dream as a Scientist. But, to get that, I have to suffer the stress of academic competition and also finance. It's really whole lot expensive studying in NUS. Although we are given grants and loans, after all these, there are still an amount of money that we have to pay... which is quite a factor to faint as we count it using the rate... Besides, NUS have so many top students, I am the one who is so lucky to get the offer... So If I am entering it, I will need to be X times hardworking than the other.

However, finally, my decision is settled. It was days after that day. Now, I decided to go NUS. It might look like I am very selfish of using my parents' money to attend a school with reputation, but I think, it's time for me to explore the suffer of the world. I must go through these few years of hard years before I know how to savour for my dreams. That's what I know: we must be able to undergo the suffers before we attain the greater success... Perhaps, I really need to go through these to success. In a more religious way, I am sure I will always guided by God to a better future. This is just a task God gave me, to test me. I had lived for almost 20 years on this Earth with love and many good things, this is time I need to have some task to do, so that I will be trained... In the future, it will be me who give the world love and many good things. My responsibility on this Earth is still not yet accomplished, I need to accept the task, to mould a better me.

So, this is my decision: NUS!!!

A lot of people saying that you waste your chance in USM? Well, I get both side opinion, some say it will waste USM's chance, then some says it will waste NUS chances, that really are confusing... the anonymous up there, I really hope to know you...

Hey Mafer, I'm facing the similar situation that you faced. And now, I just got the offer letter from KE VII, showing that I got single room. Financial problems should not be our worries but sometimes I feel the pain, really...

Hey, I think I read from some where in the forum, you got KE VII also, right?

It is my pleasure to meet you in this cyberspace, hoping to know you better in NUS, ciaoz~

i suppose that's what haunts all students studying abroad, the guilt of spending parents money when there's the alternative option of studying locally. but the experience will be worth every extra penny=)

fear not the competition, rise to the challenge and do ur best(which i am sure u will=))

living on ur own away frm home where u hv to deal every aspect of life urself is the best way to grow up within a year^^

jia you!!!and beleive in urself=)
