    If it started yesterday, why someone, not only me, have not received the decision letters. If they send out the letters after the pool, what is the point to apply to them?It seems a little bit unfair.

    Sorry, what do you mean by sending out the letters after the pool? They have to make the decisions on who out of the pool to invite for interview/who to give offers before they tell applicants right? Not sure, but I don't know if all the pool stuff just goes on for one day, could take longer to make the decisions and then send out letters?

    Oh right sorry, I just got what you meant from reading back on the thread - do you know anyone else who has heard back for the same course & college?

    I mean they even do not give you the decision for your first round, which means you lose one chance to get in. If they send out the letters after they have looked at the pool, you have been compared with the other applicants in the pool,which should not happen in the first round. You should only compare with the students who applied to the same college for the same course in the first round,otherwise there is no points to choose a college.

    I do not know anyone apply to robinson for engineering. you know, robinson is a small college and not among the popular ones. therefore i do not know if they have sent out the letters for my subject.

    Try not to worry too much - it could just be a case of a slow department/college - quite a few robinson applicants didn't receive their primary decision letters on the date when most people heard. I doubt that they chucked everyone in the pool without making a 'first decision' just because it's not standard practice. I don't really know what else to say other that you could perhaps enquire about the admissions procedure/their decision concerning you on Monday? It must be really nerve wracking (don't think I could have stayed sane for this long ), best of luck anyway
