Outcome: Rejection

How did you hear? (email/letter/phone/owl): letter
How do you feel? Pretty deflated, fluffed up my first interview- wish I'd been less nervous. But realizing that this is the outcome for most applicants and seeing the posts on here makes me feel better. Excited about other uni options, wondering which one to choose! Thinking about career aspirations, my life probably won't turn out too differently as if I had got in, and I could apply for a PhD at ox/cam if that's where i see myself in a few years

Subject: Psychology and philosophy [PPL]
College: Christ Church
Outcome: Offer
Conditions: A*AA (any subjects)
How did you hear? (email/letter/phone/owl): email
How do you feel?: Ah, don't judge me, but I felt a strong sense of mind-numbing (I don't know how else to describe it) existential dread. I feel like I didn't react at all, and I didn't work so well for this, and I am very lucky to get her
e (it feels like a fluke). Basically a massive conflict of feeling and anticlimax; of course I am ecstatic to hear from Oxford but...somehow it does not seem real. And I mean that in the sense that it doesn't feel truly genuine, whatever genuine is- I feel lost.

How did you hear?
Email
How do you feel? Completely unexpected but I'm really happy. I was prepared for a rejection so I nearly fell off my chair when I saw the email

Also, I've looked through this thread and can't seem to find any other BioMed students - feel free to send me a message if you are, it'd be nice to know who you are and see what you thought about the interview (I am still baffled)

Subject: English Lit
College:
Univ
Outcome:
Offer!
Conditions:
AAA
How did you hear? (email/letter/phone/owl):
Email (in the middle of a Latin lesson!), the letter came later in the day.
How do you feel?
Absolutely ecstatic. It still hasn't completely sunk in, and I find myself crying a lot! I remember getting the email, having to leave the room and only reading three words in the first sentence ('pleased', 'place' '2015'!) because I was so nervous. I've worked towards this for such a long time, and I'm just glad that I don't have to turn around to everyone that's been behind me through this entire journey and say 'no', I actually gave my English Department a present earlier! I was so shocked to have got a place, I thought I'd messed up all my interviews, I'm just so pleased. Well done to everyone else who's got a place, commiserations to everyone who hasn't, I'm sure you'll all be very happy at all the other wonderful universities you've applied to! See you in October, Oxford.

How do you feel?: Getting an interview was a shock for me, so you can imagine how surprised I was. I loved the time I spent there at interviews and it really made me love Wadham but I was more than ready for a rejection.
