    Good luck with the application, what did you apply for?
    Seems like Newnham is up on its applications too.
    Whoever lives closest to the Royal Mail depot will get their post first hehe. I'm banking on the fact that the closer you live to Cambridge the quicker the post but that's a load of rubbish really!
    well i hope the living close to cam thing is true coz im only 45 mins away yay!

    Haven't applied yet. I'm a humble sixteen year old A/S student, with much to learn about University admissions.

    I expect I shall apply to Peterhouse for History.

    Best of luck with your application. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Clare is in a wonderful location and is full of lovely, charming people, and that you'll be certain to enjoy your six years there.

    Best of luck with your result!
    Thanks Good luck with your Peterhouse app. too.

    Clare is a lovely place to be. Doubt I would stay for 6 years though, might need a change of environment after 3.

    i think everyones knowledge is based on random info from interviewers/ admissions office or rumours!

    After a double starred first and a Phd at one college, become a don at another one. It's the way to go.

    I just read in some other thread that someone rang up Clare's admissions office and they said they'd be posting out on Dec 30th.

    The general consensus I think is that we really have no idea for certain about when it's going to arrive

    Nah, it's just that life might seem a little boring. The bright lights of London seem quite enticing.

    Good theory. In my dreams I get an offer. Do you get one in yours?

    I guess this means that my sub conscious thinks im in? But my conscious doesn't agree.

    Cambridge is only a University (although a very good one). No-one will think any less of you if you go to, say, the LSE. Perhaps at such young ages we are obsessed with academia and fail to see the big picture.

    Remember also that it's a bit of a lottery: there will always be better applicants than you turned away and worse applicants than you accepted.

    Wherever you go, uni is bound to be a fantastic time, regardless of whether you are at Oxbridge or not, although it would be nice.
