    well if an indian man is an interviewer, and an indian or asian student is interviewed, wud make sense that he would be at an advantage.

    One of mine was clearly not born in Britain. I don't think asian students would have advantages with asian interviewers, it would be far too obvious anyway. "Noticed how all 8 students this year just happen to be from Pakistan? Hmm!"

    Would that also mean then, that white students are naturally at an advantage because the vast majority of Cambridge interviewers/fellows are white? Hope not.

    One of my interviewers was an American, so if I'm rejected do you think that I can claim it was because I wasn't an American too?
