    Skipping through TSR, I have encountered Cambridge applicants whose signatures feature a quote ,,Pooled to Oxford´´. Does it mean that unsuccessful applicants at a university can be transferred to another or is it a metaphore referring to rejects that intend to reapply?

    Thanks in advance

    I hear the two unis like to share rejectees so the best applicants are chosen. Hence some people on tsr are pooled from Cambridge to Oxford and vice versa.

    How unfortunate can you get? Being pooled by Cambridge is terrible... but being pooled to Oxford?! Well at least it's not St. John's...

    As the original question has been resolved, I reckon this can be closed now. If you want to have a private chat in or about Czech, please use PMs, guys.
