    We're just baby fishes and so it's hard for them to fish. Thus longer time required!

    I've been taking some solace from this so I thought I might as well give my details.

    I applied for physical natsci at Pembroke (Pembroke seems to have pooled loads!) and haven't heard anything yet. :eek:
    I'm in the same boat (ha! lame pun) regarding phys natsci at Pem, it's very unnerving... I might have an ulcer soon :P I'm also trying to read these posts in an effort to comfort me.. some help, while others just crush that recently built-up hope. Good luck with your application, let us know how it turns out

    I just read the article, strangely it made me feel a lot better about the whole process! Some of the quotes are quite brutal though, like the boy they pooled because "I feel sorry for him, but I don't think we can fix the problem"...

    The thread falling silent is a sign it's time for bed! I'm looking forward to hearing feedback if I do get rejected.

    Nighty-night fishies....

    Today I almost started crying in school (well, actually, I could feel the tears...) after I checked my e-mail during lunch and : NOTHING...
    Emotional breakdown...

    Cambridge doesn't like people with American qualifications who would pay EU fees...

    GOOD LUCK to everyone! We are ALLLL beyond awesome... no matter what...!!!!! we were pooled....
