    Candidates who are pooled are most likely still under consideration against applicants being reinterviewed. My brother stewed in the pool for two weeks before his rejection. These people will have to wait at most half of that. Cambridge has hard choices to make either you want them to be blasé or careful, dont be so entitled. The pool hasn't been extended as people in the pool still are only being looked at by a single (id guess their original) college.

    I don't understand how it works though if someone has been fished by a college how can they not know which college? Surely a college fished them

    I'm not sure any more. My mind is completely frazzled with stress again. That unnatural calm from earlier has disappeared to be replaced with terror, anxiety and mild nausea.

    Yes - in that case if you got an open offer it would be unconditional, so you'd be guaranteed a place, but the college would not be decided until August. You would take precedence over anyone who missed their offer.
    Thanks for the clarification. I know it's no guarantee of what's happened but it's good to hear something from someone that knows what they may be talking about.

    I just don't want to wait anymore... It's been so damn long.

    So basically we now have to wait till the end of January to find out about our fates. :bawling:
    I'm sure you will hear sooner than that.

    Does anyone know when you find out which college you've been pooled to?
    Your letter from your preference college will state whether you were pooled and fished out. If you were fished out, the fishing college should be in touch with you in the next couple of working days. As I understand it, the letter from your preference college won't say which college fished you.

    Pool interviews have a 40+% success rate this means as you are under the same consideration based off you're original performance you also have this success rate. This means that your chances of an offer since discovering you were pooled have increased.

    Decided to watch the IT crowd. I've never watched it before and it's funny enough to be totally distracting (at least for a few minutes at a time which is about as much as I can hope for)

    Good luck to both of you! I was feeling the exact same waiting for Oxford on Wednesday :3 Whatever the outcome, you'll be at a leading university and have every chance of success

    Thanks! Congrats on your Oxford offer. Have you decided to firm them or is there a chance we'll meet at Imperial?

    Murray Edwards is supposed to send out emails on the 10th. I think this is for all applicants, not just internationals.
    Murray Edwards will send the decision letter via email if you get in touch with them to request it, but there is no blanket policy with regards to sending letters out via email to applicants. Hope that helps!

    Are we still in contention?
    Bio and Phys are dealt with separately, aren't they? So we're not in competition? (Not that I'd stand much chance against you )
    I think the post is delivered from 12 - 1 so I've still got a bit of a wait either way..

    The system has changed.

    Previously you would be pooled first then called for an interview or not. There were then 4 options offer from new interview offer from new college offer from old college offer from old college after they've reinterviewed.

    The two middle options now come with the letter the first and last have to wait until the interviews are over.

    Hey everyone, can I ask for some advice? I got an email from the college I applied to, but I don't really understand what my applicant status is...

    "We have now considered your application for admission to read for a BA Honours Degree in History. I am sorry to tell you that, because of the strong competition this year, we are not able to offer you a place. However, your application was placed in the Inter-Collegiate Pool where it was available for consideration by all the other Cambridge colleges.

    I am pleased to advise you that your application remains of interest to other Colleges and you will be contacted shortly (if you have not already heard from them). If you are invited for interview, you will be advised of the final outcome of your application, as soon as possible once the Winter Pool interviews are complete."

    I'm international, so I can't be invited for interview, plus i thought the re-interviews had already taken place?

    How do I get in touch with them? Should I send an email? I live outside uk and the letter will take 7-10 days to arrive I think if it doesn't get lost
