Yes. In our Special talent column. Might need your expertise on this.

We can establish a Malaysian Students US application Wiki at www.wikia.com
, then have Recommers contribute the articles according to the Table of Contents. To validate the data, we shall have only experienced people (alumni, current students in US) to monitor the whole wiki, edit those inaccurate information.
With that, we can complete the guide with collective efforts. It will also save the time for alumni who are busy with their work
We are actually doing that (of collaborating and updating the info), but the people who are doing it are actually those who have gotten in. We do quality control on the people who are working together on this. We do get quite a few offer to help from among those who are applying.
The way we think best is for those who have gotten in and are interested to get involved, just let one of us know (caramel_nut, pinkpau, myself etc).
If you haven't gotten in, my wish is you can find resources and share it here. This would help make it more balanced. We would consider and grab stuff from here to put in too.
Keep the idea going! Thanks for the support!
