    Although the tutors did say that if you had to go then it could mean anything i.e they don't want to/can't be arsed to listen to your tripe again or they have seen enough of your potential and so do not want to interview you further or at other colleges....I don't know if that was just a nicety :mad:

    Well, I am not sure because I have read Loftx's site...he got an offer at Pembroke with one interview and I read another site with profiles of applicants who had offers at Pembroke and they had one interview so I am confused...I am not sure if it had something to do with the fact that there were about 40+ applicants,,,one interview in the college I had
    do you still mean one single interview? maybe it's a pembroke thing, they can't afford to give more than one interview per applicant

    I went to the Hobgoblin a few times although I was a bit annoyed about the price for a pint in Oxford!

    hehe...the 'broke' college bar was closed due to their lack of funds to heat and light the place and provide power for the pump taps

    Got back from my PPE interviews yesterday and am still shattered.

    Had 1hr 15mins test on monday, politics 20mins interview monday pm, philosophy 20mins interview tuesday morning and 40min economics on tuesday afternoon. They went OK..its really hard to judge as they push you to think a lot and it mashes up your brain totally.

    Keble is a wicked college, lovely people, so friendly and helpful, nice JCR and good bar apart from the bar man calling last orders about 10.30 on tuesday when we all intended to get pissed :eek:

    By this point in time, most of the Cambridge applicants have probably had their interviews already (or are having them as we speak). I had mine a couple days ago and I just want to see how everyone else thinks they did. A couple questions to get the ball rolling:

    -Were the interviews as scary as you thought they would be?

    -Looking back, would you have said/acted/worn anything different?
