    too crowded since this school has accepted a lot more students than before and resources are provided enough for the new increased number of guys

    make more resources available to students and quickly finish all the construction sites and places shifting. focus on quality not only on quantity

    Pros

    Great professors and great research environment. All kinds of advanced experimental equipment at hands. All staffs are highly professional.

    NUS itself is always the best, but still, the campus is a little too small, and weather of Singapore never changes. And, Singlish can be really hard to understand sometimes.
