    The tabs get earlier invites (and interviews, I think), so no need to worry

    damn tabs
    what are tabs?

    I want to scram as quickly as possible. Partly because it clashes with work, but mainly because I don't want to get my hopes up. Statistically speaking I may not even get an interview.
    I know how you feel - it's a horrible time, but it looks as though the law interviews are trickling in now so hopefully you don't have too much longer to wait.
    If you do have an interview, though, you will have to plan to stay for the three days - it would be awful if a second college wanted to see you and you had already left.

    I currently study German and French but I've applied for German and Czech at university.

    We got the same IB score! It makes me wary that you say you aren't confident about an interview then... what subject are you going for?
    PPE… I might just be worrying too much but stilll scared! :P

    :shock: I just +reped (blah, however you turn that into a verb) you! HOW? :rolleyes:
    It fits anyway because you're awesome
    Pleeeease post the five offers you're going to get on Fb in German when you get them (when, not if!)!

    ahhh bist so süß klar werd ich nur die wichtigen Leute in meinem Leben werdns verstehn, was mir gefällt

    You're one of the most interested and interesting people I ever met and everything's going to be great - das Warten wird sich lohnen (at least that's what I hope :/ )

    gleichfalls, Sophia, gleichfalls und danle, von dir ist solch ein Kompliment echt etwas du kennsch schon VIEEELE interessanten Leute auf jeden Fall, also ists ja etwas

    Kurz: du bist toll :heart:

    oh natürlich hab ichs nicht erwähnt, du bist auch so toll! ehrlich, so begeistert und so engagiert, ich würde so gerne mit dir studieren

    Aber es neeeervt so unglaublich! Jetzt bewerben sich die ersten Leute in meiner Stufe für ein Soziales Jahr, werden nach einer (!!) Woche zum Interview eingeladen und dann direkt genommen! Hallo? Wo ist die Gerechtigkeit??? Aaaaah!

    jap, genau, so fühl ich mich auch. nicht nur muss ich TSR und Facebook ertragen sondern auch denen sagen, die ich "in Wahrheit" kenne, also bzw aus der Schule und der Arbeit, dass ich noch weder offers noch interviews hab, und von denen hören, dass die schon vllt drei offers und zwei interviews haben, zum beispiel. und ja, natürlich kann jeder mir sagen, dass meine unis so gut seien dass die lang dauern müssen, mir etwas zu sagen, oder dass ich BESTIMMT offers bekomme, oder dass ich einfach nur geduld haben müsse...aber das isch ja leicht zu sagen wenn man schon irgendwo hat, wohin man im september gehen kann -.- gerechtigkeit? gibts gar keine...

    That passage is basically me ranting and telling Chiara that she's the best.

    and likewise, including another rant about not having any offers
    Ich lieeeebe wie du so langsam von Englisch ins Deutsche gegangen bisch

    [Sorry I've forgotten your name! Tell me again?]! :cry2: I want mine too. Especially as it's getting close enough to the time that I'm having to make excuse for not being able to do things in those dates, and then when people ask why I have to go, "well, hopefully I'll have Oxford interviews then", and then they go "Oh! Have you heard back from them?", and I'm like "No.". :hmpf:

    Aha I haven't told anyone my name :heart:

    waaah. I want to cry. Hopefully letter by Monday, or so I'm praying! Where are all the other Merton applicants? This week is going to give me a heart attack I swear.

    3 mock interviews + school QT prep + Target 2.0 + trekking to St Pauls to interview those occupiers :cry:

    :yes:

    At first I couldn't tell which college he was at in the film, and I was staring at the college architecture trying to discern which one it was... I incorrectly guessed Worcester but in the end on the choral book there was a tiny crest of Magdalen that I spotted

    I was so proud of myself :giggle:

    I'm not expecting anything til the end of the week. And it could be a week after that. :eek4: I had a mock interview, with our (sort of) headteacher. Completely useless. He asked:
    - Why Oxford?
    - Why maths?
    - What would I do if he gave me a lot of money to research some area of mathematics (Wait for the end of my degree? How can you do research mathematics before you've got to university?)
    - What 'personal qualities' do I have?
    - Am I a leader or a follower?

    :rolleyes: Nooo maths involved.


    Well, if you refuse to tell me your name I'll just have to call you Tracy until you give in.
