    How do you request an email? by phone or email?

    I am soooo nervous...
    Applicant portal gives details; phone if not in tomorrow's post I think (didn't read too carefully as I knew my letter was at home when I read it) so do double check.

    Wait, can we ask for feedback even if we got an offer? I had it in my head it was only for rejections, but I can see the feedback thing too.
    Christs admissions (obviously different college so John's may be completely different) said on another thread that you can ask but they might just say no to successful applicants because they are so busy... Unless there was a reason e.g. Your school had never got somebody in and wanted to understand why was the case he talked about.

    Did you not stay there for interview? The room I stayed in was a first year room and it was a really nice room, medium-large for a uni room and the bathroom was shared between a group of 4/5 rooms as well as a shared kitchen

    The college allocated me guest accommodation rather than a room in Cripps, where I know some people were. Thanks for your input, glad to know the room was okay

    Just got rejected from St John's for medicine . Interview was ok, but I wasn't going to prepare to get my hopes up anyway. Ahh well, still have other interviews anyway so it's not the end of the world

    Well first year is done on a random ballot. So you are numbered 1-170. #1 gets to choose first, then #2, etc.The first year rooms you get to choose from are largely chapel court/ north court/ cripps (these staircases are where you want to be because you want to be around freshers) unless there is an unusually large number of you. And it tends to be you pay for what you want unless you're too low down to get any choice.

    Firstly, there are properly ensuite rooms in Cripps (they are pricey) but there aren't many and they are understandably popular, so the chance of getting one is low. I dont know exact numbers but you need to be near the top.
    Then there are a range of cripps rooms, ranging from those which are sort of two rooms with a sliding wall, to those which are just 1 room, but none of them are small. All cripps rooms are generally quite big though, and all cripps rooms will come with a good (new) sink, radiator, lights, etc. All cripps rooms have access to a cripps kitchen, which is a bit underwhelming. And if you don't have an ensuite room, then you will have a bathroom which can only be opened by your card + maybe 2/3 others.

    Chapel court and north court both work in psuedo double sets. So there will be a bathroom, kitchen, (small) hallway, 1 large bedroom and 1 small bedroom. The larger room is normally quite a bit larger - near the size of the average cripps room and near the price. This is kind of the size which is fine to have a small party or about 5-10 people around for pre drinks or something.The small room is more like a bedroom, and generally has enough space for a desk, wardrobe, bed, and some floor space but you wouldn't comfortably fit more than 3 people in there. The price does reflect this and they're about £300-400 cheaper.
    In my opinion, this is better value than Cripps. The downside is that Cripps does tend to be the hub of parties and pre-drinks in general, and I suppose if the person you live next to is really difficult for whatever reason that could be bad.

    The accommodation, now that it has very recently been refurbished, is very good. The only downside is generally the cost, but considering you're at the centre of cambridge it is quite reasonable.
