    They're not allowed to tell people over the phone for security reasons apparently.

    Well there you go, they rang you. If you were to ring them though I bet they wouldn't tell you because you could be anybody. At least if they ring your house and your mobile they know its you.

    I have a horrible feeling that if I don't get into John's, they will pool me to one of the mature colleges...

    How do people feel about the prospect of going to Cambridge but not to their first choice college? For example, girls who applied to a mixed college but get offered a place at one of the all female colleges?

    a.

    I mean, I'd have to spend a long time thinking about it, but I've been studying at an all-girls school for a considerable amount of time, and to be honest, I think I'd like something a bit different. There must be some snobbery too, by the other colleges, since I'd imagine the all-girls places would just get the reputation of housing all the people who weren't first-choices for their colleges.

    I think it's really unfair how girls have this added chance (and at Durham) of being shoved in an all-girls college. Guys don't have to go through the same problem!

    Not true - last year my acceptance was just a one-sheet A4 letter in a regular size envelope. White with College stamp as I remember...
