    Yeah, we waited an extra week to be told that we have to wait more.

    It's being dragged out so much though.
    really shocked you guys are in this position. it's so mean of Cambridge to do that and I would've betted both of you to get direct offers! However, I wish you both all the best and I hope you guys get in!!! Both of you have a good chance in my opinion.

    Thanks! I'm hoping I just get in. I don't care which college as long as it's an offer I'll be happy.
    You've done amazing to get an offer and you rightfully deserve it!

    Shall I keep you updated with my application?

    I'm one of the medics that is pooled and has his 'file available for consideration by other colleges'. I noticed that there is a large proportion of St John's med applicants, which I am one, are being put on the same boat. I do hope it's not a straight rejection and hope that it's an opportunity for an open offer!

    Yeah that is true. I think there's at least 3/4 of us from St John's on this thread who have been pooled.
    I just want an offer so bad!

    Please do! Do you think St John's have given all of their medicine offers? Could they be waiting for certain pool interviews before making their final decision?

    I'm too use to waiting now.

    .
    That is possible since colleges are told to allocate 20% of their places for the applicants pooled.

    Colleges should reserve at least the last 20% of their places, and be prepared to look at applicants from other Colleges within their Group (or from the Winter Pool), before finalising these last offers.
    It's a bit difficult to tell what the situation is right now. I've not heard from any medics got pooled and invited for reinterviews, but I've heard a few being fished out and given a direct offer instead.

    Hi, may I ask that did you get pooled prior to your rejection, or are you still in consideration by other colleges?

    I don't know any medics that have been pooled and then fished out.
    Maybe it is for the open offer thing.

    Wait so did your letter say you got pooled by Emma? Or did you receive a letter saying that you were still under consideration in the pool and they will get back to you?

    Hi,

    I just wanted to say that today I received the offer to study medicine at Jesus College Cambridge. Thank you for sharing with me a bit about the college and it certainly motivated me to work for it.

    If your son hasn't graduated yet, I might see him around!

    Hopefully I can make the offer ><
