    Tomorrow when I get my letter, I'm gonna get dressed in tracksuit and take a walk along the river, sit down, and open it. If no one's there and I get in, I will scream as loud as is physically possible, break trees down etc.

    i would class it as a shame not to get into cambridge, but it wouldnt be the end of the world would it? ya have to remeber that there are loads of good university's out there, and if you do get rejected, likelyhood will be that they will reject you again even if you take a year out, i would just be plaesed if i get in, and indifferent if i'm not (can you tell i'm lying in that last statement )

    If the college thinks your application is good, but they don't have a place for you they stick you in the pool. The pool is looked at by admissions tutors from the other colleges that have places on your course.

    Occasionally you get asked back for another interview at another college, or the college just goes on the information they have about you already.

    If they like the look of your profile then they might offer you a place w/o further interview, however they can also ask you to come for interview to decide (around the first week of Jan).
    In the worst case scenario you don't get picked from the pool by any college and it is a rejection.
    See my earlier posts...pages 30+ i think?

    When any of my family seek to ask about Cambridge I feel like tearing their throats out. I just wanna be on my own with this, and if I get in, I only wanna celebrate with my friends.

    I always thought that reapplying would seem a bit desperate. But I loved going up for interview, and I'm seriously considering reapplying. I wanted to hate Cambridge, but you can't!
