    Freiburg was the only one I applied too.. I sent them the documents on the last day I could apply ) and it was Law that I applied to btw
    Ah cool, I actually got into Law in Freiburg too But I was actually really stupid because I applied for so much but only two choices were Politics & Econ so eventually I only had Heidelberg and Münster to choose from...

    And I suppose you've chosen Heidelberg, right?

    I did But it really wasn't all about prestige, my main reason was that I got into student halls in Heidelberg (which was harder than getting into the uni ) and didn't in Münster..

    That's cool.. But I still hope we'll get into Oxford. I'll buy y'all a round of the most expensive drinks if I get in.

    And I'm not even kidding. If we're lucky enough to meet there, do remind me of this

    I have a bit of the same issue. They say it doesn't matter but I am not sure if it's true and therefore don't really know if St John's or Univ is a too "high" choice for me..
    I honestly think I will ask at my old school- I am not very sure of anything when it comes to this college business and , to be honest, it doesn't matter that much to me. I think it will if I get in, and obviously I'll get some sort of college spirit etc., but for no, it is the course that I'm interested about and the college is a secondary issue.

    I hope so too!
    Hahaha, I will do that then - looking forward to it I mean, it's possible, there are lots of reapplicants getting in every year

    I'm totally daydreaming right now, but it would be absolutely lovely if this time next year we'd be buying plane tickets for England

    Yeah, I agree with you.. But after I visited some colleges I quickly found that I liked some more than others and I think it can't be bad to choose a college that you like.. Still, I would probably also sleep under a bridge if they gave me an offer for that ("The Bridge College" - that would be an idea )

    This would be just incredible.. Though sometimes I don't even dare to think about what would be if I were to get in because I don't want to spend too much time on something that probably won't work..

    Don't be so hard on yourself! Just do your best and make sure you show the tutors you're passionate and smart enough. and nail the tsa lol))

    I'm trying not to get too excited just yet, but I can't help but imagine what it would be like if I got in. And it's really cool that if we get an offer, it's gonna be unconditional

    I will try to do my best! I am not really pessimistic, rather realistic, I mean speaking from the numbers..
    Yeah the TSA is pretty important haha... I got 64 last year while having 70 and above when I practised before
    Unconditional offers are great, that's true.

    Yeah, you do have to be able to solve problems real' fast. If you used to get scores like this, well, you do stand a chance of getting in

    Thanks me too😌 Just wasn't what I was expecting or in the same kind of format as other interviews I've heard about at Oxford. Threw me off a bit and made me stressed from the beginning so I just didn't perform as well.

    Meh, that does kinda suck.. I believe that's why we should have no expectations and just go there with an open mind

    My philosophy interview went terribly too last year, probably one of the major reasons for the rejection...

    I was given an extract from a book and asked to discuss what the author was trying to convey but it was really strange idk just didn't feel particularly philosophy based to me in terms of other interviews I had heard about (hypothetical situation and response kind of things)
