      Pros

      The YNC Admissions Office was a fantastic place to work at because the team was always willing to cover for each other, I had good direct leadership and it felt like we were contributing towards the overall growth of the college. YNC will certainly be missed.

      Cons

      Well, thanks to a certain President somewhere, no longer will Admissions Fellows be able to continue building the College

      Pros

      Clean beautiful safe environment. The college promotes mutual respects among colleagues and students. The administrative supports are overall very good.

      Cons

      There is not much space for serendipity due to the pandemic. I am not sure how seriously meritocracy is practiced. It seems better than most institutes in Europe and US. But I am less certain when comparing Yale-NUS College with other institutes in Singapore.
