    Awww.. no not yet. I guess they're gonna tell me on Monday. I don't know why the admissions office aren't open from Friday to Sunday. Weird eh? You think they're having a long holiday? Grrr.. if only I could just ring them up to check if they were open. But thanks for asking. I just don't like waiting. If I get rejected, then I know that for the whole 2004 I don't need to work too hard and can still get into a good uni. So yeh, I need to know my status before I make plans on whether to work hard or not. hehe.. pretty lame! but true.
    Ow..bad luck . hope all goes well for you on Monday

    Pooled means you're good enough to go to cambridge, but v. high competition for places in your college means they probs don't have a place for you. So all the colleges with places will pick out the best from the pool to fill the gaps.

    Therefore...if you're better than everyone else in the pool, your initial college may still offer you a place!

    Hope this helps

    My friend applied to cambridge for engineering too, and he got put in the pool. I was really surprised...cos i reckon he's one of the strongest candidates..so unless his interview didnt go so well...

    Anyway...he got a letter telling him that chances of being picked from the pool is 5%...not that great..but you guys still got a shot...

    Good luck

    I wanted to give you a reputation thingy, as well as other nice people on the forum but they said I gave out too much reputation which is so not true! I haven't given any at all.

    Anyway, just wanted to say thank you because you've been encouraging not only me but ALL the other anxious, disappointed or upset people in this forum even though you've got every right to be prancing around celebrating your acceptance.

    Hehe.. hope you get to read this! I've thanked you once before, but yeh, this time wanted to point it out to others who have benefitted from some nice-ness. Somehow these forums are so full of stress and other high strung emotions that it's easy to forget kindness.

    Lol! Don't worry about it....that's what this forum is supposed to be about surely?? Anyway....its no fun if you've got something to be happy about and you can't share it with other people.

    And to be honest...i don't give two hoots about reputation really...its just little green bars under your name...lol!

    I'm so sorry... I was really hoping you'd get in. I hope you're not taking it too hard; your other choices are still excellent, and you should feel none the worse for them.
