    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.
    good advice....but i havent heard from lse either! lolz!

    I'm really not sure whether I got in or not; I'm just sticking with the gut reaction I had at the end of the admissions process, that it had gone well.

    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.
    It would be nice, yes, but it isn't as pivotal to your life as some make it out to be.

    No it's not. Some people actually end up not having a good time there due to extremely high-pressured environment, etc.

    Now that is really weird. I would suggest that you read about fitzw at somepoint and stored this info in your head (sub consciously of course), and perhaps your sub likes fitzw.

    I hope my dream is accurate....

    At my interview I was told that I would hear from them in the new year.....but I cant help waking up early everday for the post....even on a f**king sunday when there is no post!!!

    No the colleges will get to you first. UCAS get updated sometime in mid/late January.

    Ppl I am 100% certain that ALL the colleges post their replies tomorrow (30th) for all the subjects...I rang around asking at around 3/4 different colleges (Sad...I know!) and all said the same thing and said they'd all agreed to post together 1st class.

    We should all get letters same time on Wednesday!!

    Good luck!

    My friend went to Newnham. Food's not too bad. People might tend to stereotype you though.
