To go via the SHHK route, you should ideally have 4 years tenure as a member at time of application to be safe of a recommendation. As it is, you will be slightly short of being safe. Thus, you should try to sign up with the clan asap.


4 years? so means I have to join by this year? but the member fee is quite pricy..if join SHHK also no guarantee can enrol to the school right?


Join SHHK, there's no guarantee you get the recommendation letter. Even if you did get the letter and there's a need to ballot, there's no guarantee you will be able to get into the school

Chongfu didn't disclose the reasons. Heard that 20 accepted only per year but not sure if it's true. No harm calling the school to ask and send in your application.

If you don't join, it's guarantee that you won't be able to participate in Phase 2B (unless you can go via PV or GRL route).
If you join too late, you can only bang your head if you are unable to secure the recommendation due to tenure or not enough time / chances to clock those volunteer hours.
Comparing the cost of joining the clan vs the cost of missing out an opportunity at Phase 2B, which is more costly?

I have been a SHHK member for more than 4 years. Do I also need to do volunteer work with the clan in order to get a recommendation letter for 2b? Does anyone know how "active" one has to be?

Err... since you are an existing member (and a fairly long one), shouldn't you have better insights that us?
