    Question for Minerva,
    I did not get a letter yesterday, hoping to tomorrow.
    If I am pooled what should I expect because I wasn’t clear yesterday what was going on. I thought the new system meant that those that were fished from the pool without interview last week would get an offer letter posted 9th Jan from the offering college yet I saw no posts that had people saying that they had received offers from different colleges in the pool. All the comments from pooled applicants yesterday seemed to be because they got a letter from the original college saying they were in the pool.
    If I was pooled should I expect a letter tomorrow from the offering college with the offer or a letter from the original college saying I am in the pool or both?
    If anyone else has the answer please do please tell me, has anyone had an offer from the pool yet?

    Hi, I got rejected from Queens but they said I've been made an offer by another college through the Winter Pool. Does this mean I will need to be reinterviewed or that I have a Cambridge offer? Does anyone know how this will show up on ucas track (offer or rejection)? I applied for engineering btw. Thanks

    You're in the same position as me, don't worry I didn't understand my letter at first. It means you have an offer so well done! Now we're just waiting to see which college has made it so I'm guessing UCAS will update when we know this to say that offer has been made but a different campus code

    Hi I got a letter from St John's saying that they had rejected me but I was put into the pool and from that a college has made me an offer. The letter said I should hear from the college telling me the offer soon, hope that helps

    Me too, but for Architecture! You won't get reinterviewed because the pool interviews were this weekend. I've checked both UCAS and my emails constantly to see what college has fished me but nothing, so I'm thinking of ringing the admissions office on Monday morning because I can't cope with the wait... I don't understand why our new colleges couldn't just send us a letter if they've already decided to give us both offers :s

    No, you should hear from another college in the next few days, and it will be a direct offer.

    Same! I've been going through all the admissions statistics for my subject (Architecture) and trying to figure out who has the fewest applicants that tends to make a lot of pool offers


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    And which is the college with the fewest applicants? I applied for Architecture too, at Churchill, but I didn't get my letter yet.

    After 13th I believe. Could be wrong about that. Honestly don't care when it goes 'official' this suits me just fine!

    I'm not going to go trawling through the thread, but some people have already heard who took them out of the Pool. Those who haven't are most likely to hear tomorrow or Tuesday (depending on methods!). Tomorrow you should get your letter from your preference college, if you don't hear by Tuesday you can contact them and ask where it's got to. If it turns out that you were pooled and fished you would hear from the college concerned from tomorrow onwards.

    Google Cambridge Application Statistics then there's this graph where you can see how many people applied each year, how many got in, which were winter pool offers etc. You can also apply filters to each college, or a course at a college. It's really quite useful I hope you get in!

    I know the wait is killing me- I keep freaking that the Queens could have made a mistake...I really hope the college contacts us both soon or I might email Queens on Monday too. Congratulations on your offer!!
