    Nope, nothing. I'm not that worried - I'm all the way over in Norway, so I suppose I might have to wait until tomorrow or Monday for the offer letter. In the meantime I think I'll just go ahead and be incautiously optimistic. Thank you muchly, though, NatSci.

    I knoe i knoe.. I feel exactly the same way. The worst thing is that I have a Math exam next week and I'm so messed up. I hope I don't have to wait for my results until then. I can't do any studying! Thank goodness I managed to finish 7 practice papers last night... they were pure torture.. ARGH. 7 whole papers crammed into one night. I am a werewolf.

    And I realised we both have Britney avatars. Where are you applying to and for whaT?

    Oh poo! Lolz.. do you know when they will be open? Thanks for telling me. I can go to sleep now.
    Please tell me you're kidding- sleep for god's sake. My mother and brother told me I'd been rejected in the hope I'd get out of bed (I'd given them permission to open any mail from Cambridge), which didn't work as I had prepared myself mentally for any outcome so was completely happy to doze. Being a trusting sort, I didn't find out I'd got in till about noon when I found a reading list on the kitchen table.

    The weird thing is, my interview was okay, but im pretty sure I have been rejected.....

    Most people seem to say they have had terrible interviews but been offered places....and those who had said they had good interview sometimes didnt get in. It is so weird.

    Yeppers. The competition is extremely high, especially for law. It's vicious and one of those marked in 'red' for applicants per place ratios. However, I really wanted to go rather than being slotted into a college I did not like so I gave it a shot.

    My mentor applied to do his Law PHD at Downing, and after his interview he was immediately informed that he was accepted. So it may be a really good idea. The website for Downing is no good, but the college was beautiful beyond belief... and the people are angels too. Heehe.. I'm biased maybe.
    Yes... the neo-classical architecture of Downing is certainly magnificent. I wonder if Downing is a popular college overall for grad study. It's always hard to judge these things.

    I was going to suggest St. John's to my friend, since it seems to be relatively easy to get in, but perhaps you are right saying that ease of entry should not be an important criterion in determining one's choice of college. After all, I did choose St. John's because I thought it would be good; I didn't realise it was one easy to get into when I applied.

    Anyway... thanks for your thoughts.

    I hope it works out that way. My interviewers loooked really annoyed with me. Hahahha. I made so many blunders and I bet they thought I was really stupid. Eeeps. I was so cold - I've never been in weather less than 30 degrees celcius.. and jetlagged badly.. Yet I take the blame for being pretty dumb
