    In the worst case scenario you don't get picked from the pool by any college and it is a rejection.
    That's what happened to my brother He wasn't hung up on Cam though so it didn't matter. Out of all the people I know who have been picked from the pool (not many), they have pretty much all had extra interviews.

    yep drove my brain into cottege cheese!! quite liked third chimpanzee, didja read it?
    I thought it was good.....but so much repetition from Guns Germs and Steel......If you havent read this, dont bother....most of it is in the third chimp.....but saying that, GGS is newer, so perhaps you should read it (if you get in lol).

    My tutor said that's why oxford's better because you're more likely to get in from the pool. I didn't know whether this was the truth, or just the ex-oxford man's cambridge dislike coming through!

    It's not the be all end all if you don't go to Oxbridge- a lot of well qualified people don't make it either.
    Yeah, I would have thought the colleges would interview for pool.

    I'm gonna document my process of opening the letter on the forum. Start it with "...Letters letters letter letter letters..." Dad will be at work, mum's on holiday somewhere in Brighton. If I get in I'll scream the house down; if I don't get in, I'll scream the neighbour's house down.
