    Any idea from past experience if one would be likely to have an interview on the day they arrive? I have been asked to be at college by 12, an then lunch till 13:15 and then a pre-interview meeting.
    Yes, this is quite likely....when my brother applied he arrived at Merton 9am, and his first interview was at 11am. Also our neighbour was interviewed the morning she arrived at Corpus. A couple of school friends have said the same thing, so I think it's a pretty common occurrence.

    Everyone is really friendly and it is quite down-to-earth. I had both my Mansfield interviews today, but don't know if I'm going to get anymore from other places tomorrow.
    Good luck for yours

    No of course they won't mind. The food is free though so unless you have a particular reason for not going, there's nothing to lose! Also nice to get human company and chat to some of the applicants/current students since you'll be there for a few days!

    That's good What course have you applied for? Were you given a set day you have to stay till?

    And is there plenty of opportunity to meet people then? I've heard some places put on social events for this purpose, is this the case at Mansfield, or is it kind of just walking down to the common room?

    Sorry for all the questions! Hope your interviews went well

    'The number of applicants we are able to invite for an interview is approximately 3 applicants per place.'
    A stupid question, what exactly does that mean? Does it mean one in three applicants get short-listed for interview?
    Many thanks!

    How likely is it that we will be called for interviews from extra colleges?
    Does that mean we could stay over another night (how many more)?
    Is that a sign that the previous colleges have rejected you or does it increase your chances of getting into oxford?
