Come hear admissions experts, alumni and current students from the most sought after US universities talk about the process and experience.

6. Sunday, 28 Feb, 2016 03:00pm – 06:00pm – DUAL Speed Dating – Spring 2016

Following 2 successful DUAL Speed Datings in 2015 in the new format, we will once again play cupid. So, rather than going through the standard opening questions (Where do you work? Do you game? How many goldfish do you want?), we’ve decided to continue to shake things up! In other words, you are to provide a short description of yourself in no more than 30 words upon registration. These will be compiled and published prior to the event, with only your initials identifying you. So be creative! At the event, there will be 15 guys and 15 girls. Every five minutes, you’ll get to meet someone different and since you already know the boring background stuff about your partner, we’ll also be providing questions to guarantee an interesting conversation.

Venue: Pan Pacific The Atrium Bar

Cost: TBA

RSVP: http://goo.gl/forms/DUpfHm7JJt

Contact: Please contact dualcupids@gmail.com for any questions.

So if you’re 35 and under, and looking for your partner-to-be, register quick! A confirmation email along with payment details will be sent shortly after. Remember, your spot is only confirmed after payment. We’re taking only 15 guys and 15 girls this time – so be quick! Important If you are unable to make it, after registering successfully, please inform us as soon as possible so that the spot can be offered to the next person on the waiting list. Please note priority is given to alumni from DUAL member schools and who did not participate in the July 2015 DUAL Speed Dating.
