    Only thing I'm bringing with me are my letter and my mobile; think I'm gonna ring my best mate if I get in, then mum
    I dont think ill open it.....i am fast gettin used to this uncertainty...and in a way it probably feels better than rejection..i will just wait till I turn up at college on the fifth....and wait for my teacher to say either "well done" or "bad luck".

    Anyway.....GOODLUCK everyone for tomorrow morning..........

    I had wanted to open my envelope away from everyone...but it was kind of obvious of the decision from the size of the envelope so there was no point!
    GoodLuck to all xxx

    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!
    I heard that too. Apparently it's because the Oxford tutors will make a huge effort to find you a place if they think you are good enough. At Cam, they chuck in loads of people (excellent candidates nevertheless but still a lot more in the pool than at Ox) to the pool so there's a lot more people whose applications don't even get seen. I think at Ox they also have more collaboration within each department too (though I think Cam's medical department are pretty good), could all just be a rumour though!

    I'm not actually that bothered anymore. I think I'm in a lull. I'll be full of nervous twitches tomorrow though. Anyone contemplating sleeping on the doormat?

    Lol. Imagine if Cambridge sent you a thin letter and, misinformed, you threw it a way thinking it was a rejection, when it was in fact an offer. Then you proceed to confirm your 2 choices with UCAS!!

    Yes...and also when people say useless things like "oh you'll get in" as blase as possible. I won't dammit! And also people treating me with fear as if I were a bomb that might explode. *ticks*
