    are you sure you can call?

    on the st.john's website it sais that we should wait to get the letter, and that no phone calls or e-mails about outcome can be made.

    well they let us call for the interviews, and someone told me on this thread earlier that you could call - what if your mail gets lost for example?
    some people here open the mails for fun too, you never know -
    maybe they mean that you cant learn the outcome that way before the date that they actually send out all the mail?
    anyway my mail will probably get lost, so i think ill call them up anyway

    "Applicants are advised in writing of the outcome of their application to St John's. We are unable to advise the outcome via email or telephone."

    that's what is sais on the admission site of st.john's, so I dont think there is anything else you can do than wait (unless it doesnt arrive till late january of course)

    yeah I know It takes far longer for switzerland, too.
    and Im afraid but I dont think UCAS will update anytime soon from what Ive heard on TSR... so there really is nothing else than waiting I suppose.

    at least we can wait together haha

    Btw , just wanting to reassure myself that i'm not the only one, is there anyone else out there who every single day seems to remember someting else he said at the interview that seemed either dumb, irrelevant, a mistake or too simplistic? Or something he/she should've said?

    absolutely. even more so I think about things I have forgotten to mention which would have been really vital :/
    I really just try to not think about it at all anymore. It won't help.
    havent you gone on holidays btw?

    Pennying is just a drinking game where basically you have to try and slip a penny into someone's drink without them noticing, in the aim of getting them as drunk as possible. I assume it is roughly the same at Johns.

    EDIT: just seen the wiki link above, which explains it much better
