You cant take what people say online as a correct representation of reality. People describe NTU as a 'tiong' school as well. But the PRC population there is no more than in NUS or SMU. You don't know who these people are, they might be SIM grads/students themselves.

Some of the mockery is honestly derived from SIM students themselves who make weird claims like the one above about being from LSE and also that we are somehow 'street-smart' and other university grads are not. These claims do gain a considerable amount of mockery. IMO, dont take what anyone says online seriously. Its best to just take care of yourself and let your performance at work speak for your abilities.
I agree - most of it is due to generalisation. I do know a couple of SIM grads - who are down to earth and happy to admit that they are from SIM, not start a convo/post on FB that they are UOL/LSE/RMIT. in my opinion, you should be proud of what you have - people think lowly of you if you try to act.

degree wise - SIM's courses are no way comparable to the local standards - there is a reason why NUS/SMU/NTU are 4 year full time courses. coupled with the fact that grades are normalized in local universities.

the crap about being streetsmart etc, is 100% bullshit. try telling a NUS grad who got into InvBanking earning 10k a month as his first pay, driving a BMW after 2-3 years that he is not streetsmart. likewise, claims about SIM grads making into graduate programmes are just laughable.

To continue from above, for SIM-UOL grads or SIM in general, you need to go out and network. Talk to people. Get involved in your future career.

If you want to be B, research it. Join competitions. Getting a good job is not easy especially being from SIM-GE when you have local U competing for the same pool of jobs.

True, but if you give up - that's that. Network. Be Likeable. Know people. Know jobs before they are even posted.

Get internships (I am glad I did. It led to a better internship and another better one) - till I landed a full time offer.

Life is not defined by your paycheck, but whether you are willing to fight for the future you want - be it failure or success. Keep trying (smartly).
