Do you mind if I ask the reason? Is it because the teaching quality or the career path for engineering afterwards?

Generally our opinion in local schools is just that HK engineering education is bad

Do you know what a CUHK PS is supposed to look like? Couldn't really find a sample essay to give me a rough idea... Might just have to look harder though

I see! I'm looking at a totally different program so it would need quite a lot of reworking. Regarding formatting, how was your document? Spacing wise?

Don’t you need a PS for HKU to even be considered lol? Also, do you guys know when interviews invites are sent? I think interviews are held before Christmas holidays.
