    What do you guys think about this? Found it here: https://www.quora.com/At-which-Oxfor...atharina-Kunze
    I don't think so. With open applications they will fill up the difference between the under and oversubscribed colleges, I think.

    Not really, by having two (or more) interviews at different colleges everyone has the same statistical chance of getting an offer.

    Does that actually happen? Two people getting interviews at two different places, I mean.

    As far as I know, it all happens by chance. I remember reading somewhere that it was made by a computer randomly.
    Really?! I find the idea that any part of Oxford has a computer system that could do that strangely startling...

    I am now thinking that it might just be done in a way that those colleges that receive less applications are compesated.
    I think that every college gets at least some open applications- I know of people who were allocated to even the most consistently oversubscribed colleges. There must be some distribution plan as well, if only b/c they can't know exactly how many open apps there will be in any given year.

    I was told by my teacher that ALL applications, regardless of the college of choice are seen on a 'Big List' by all colleges from day one.

    The college of choice has first opportunity to interview and offer, but other colleges have the option to review the full application from the start and request an interview if they wish. If the college of choice chooses to not make an offer, anyone else can then swoop in and make one instead.

    As for open applications, my teacher said these are randomly assigned (by computer maybe?) to colleges, and then the above process takes place.

    However, my school does not send many students to Oxbridge, indeed I have decided not to apply to Oxford or Cambridge, and there do seem to be several versions of reality surrounding the Oxbridge application process. Just sayin'.

    Law with French Law! It's nice to meet a fellow Magdalen lawyer hopeful
    I imagine you also got their acknowledgement email this morning.
    Can I ask which subjects you're taking and what your predicted grades are?
    Yes, I finally got an e-mail from them. I am an international student so I believe our grading systems are way too different.
    However, If you are interested, my school leaving exams subjects are: History (in English), Civic education (combination of philosophy, politics and economics), English language and my maternity language. I am predicted to accomplish my school leaving exams on straight As (more precisely it could be seen as A*s). What about you?

    Is anyone else also in that spiral of despair studying for entrance exams and writing essays thinking "man why on earth did I even bother applying" while stuffing their face with chocolate cake ?

    Haha.....this week has been a bit better as I've stopped eating jars of Nutella with a spoon and have moved on to 'only' entire banana cakes.

    Imagine how it's gonna be after the exams and we can actually get rejected or not.....

    Is it good or bad news if you get an interview at a college other than the one youve applied to, in addition to your preferred college? Also, is it possible to get one interview only from a college you haven't applied to?
