    Yep and also financial advice. I think you will also get quite a thick letter if you're in the pool (that's what happened to my brother last year anyway).
    Going in the pool is awful; I just want the whole thing to be drawn to a close by tomorrow

    Don't worry too much, if it's any consolation nothing can be changed now the decision was made ages ago...

    I'm applying for Law at Magdalene
    The other oxbridge candidates were pushed towards oxford because we have some links with some of the colleges. It was the only one of the two we took a trip to! My school also told me not to apply for my subject - as its competitive. My headmaster said I should apply for Physics at St Catherine's Oxford (I don't even do Physics A2). It's nice to know your school's behind you!

    true - imagine if you've got all excited because you want to find out tomorrow, you rush to the door when you hear the postman/woman/person, only to be told you have to wait EVEN LONGER!! I'm really hoping I don't get pooled!

    Yeah, they told me to plan a gap year as I probably wouldn't get any offers. I've got two, but haven't told them yet.

    I'd really like to get in to prove to my school that you can get in to study law at a good uni!

    Yes, some of these school are really crazy...they just want to maintain there oxbridge success rep, and the students' thoughts and aims are not considered! I'd prefer a school who didnt hav e any students going to oxbridge, rather than one who pushes you .....

    My college was a bit pissed off that i applied cos that meant a little extra work for them!

    Seems they were more interested in getting as many students into Oxbridge as possibly, by hook or by crook.

    it was my 2nd choice afta cam but they put in in st cuthburts so mayb not nemore!
