    How did you hear? (eg letter/phone/owl): Letter arrived on Friday and my dad telephoned the school as my phone was off.
    How do you feel? Shocked and surprised, I was sure I would be pooled at best and rejected at worst as one of my interviews went badly.

    Outcome: Offer
    Conditions: It didn't say in the letter I've already graduated though, so maybe that means it's unconditional.
    How did you hear? (eg letter/phone/owl): My letter finally arrived!
    How do you feel? I've just managed to stop shaking. I still can't really believe it. OMG.

    How did you hear? (eg letter/phone/owl): my letter, surprisingly, finally arrived..
    How do you feel? Exactly what I expected after my interviews, but I would lie if I'd say I wasn't slightly emotional, a bit disappointed and sad.

    College: St Catharine's
    Outcome: Unconditional Offer!!!!
    How did you hear? Phoned the admissions (my 3rd time in 5 days of waiting!!she eventually told me )
    How did you feel? After 5 days of waiting..."eventually!!!". I mean i really have worried so much. but in the end of the day, the interviewer actually said to me before i leave the interview room : " you will know your result in January...Which will be the success of your application!" So i guess I am not very surprised at my offer my 2- year's work eventually meant something (gap yeared).

    How do you feel: Oh well - it isn't the end of the world. In fact, my top choice wasn't even Cambridge to begin with. Looks like I'll be headed to either the US or Canada for college.

    Outcome: Pooled, Conditional Offer by Girton
    Conditions: A*AA
    How did you hear? (eg letter/phone/owl): Phone-call
    How do you feel? Such a relief. At first I thought that I would be absolutely gutted about not getting into Emmanuel, because I've adored the college since last year when I made the decision to apply to Cambridge after a HE conference, but I'm not. I'm just thankful to be studying my dream subject at Cambridge. CAMBRIDGE! :woo: I still can't believe I'm able to write that.

    Outcome: Pooled --> Rejected
    Conditions: N/A
    How did you hear: email
    How do you feel? Very, very well. Didn't feel bad at all. I was NOT going to attend either way because the 3 days I spent in Cambridge made me realize that UK is NOT my place and that I will be definitely heading to either the Middle East or the USA for college. And I am not saying this just because of the rejection - you can check some of my posts before I got the decision to verify. Honestly, I am not some trophy hunter or name picker - if I don't belong or like a place, I am not going to go regardless of the name, be it Oxford, Cambridge or the University of Madagascar. Congratulations to all who got in, though, and especially the ones for whom Cambridge truly is a top choice! Good luck with exams and well done!
