    I've been pooled for law at Magdalene. Just wondering if anyone else has been pooled, and if they know any more about the process than the blue sheet said.

    More waiting, but I'll strive to enjoy new year!

    Hey congratulations I know it's not the result you wanted but there's still a glimmer of hope. Keep having faith. My fate hasn't been decided yet. But yeh, you're the first law student I've heard from so far.

    It's the result I expected - and I'm quite happy with it actually. I'd like another crack at interviews, and I'm pleased they are even giving me a second look

    I've been pooled for Veterinary Medicine at Magdalene! So, just a question, cos I don't really understand, has Magd outright rejected you, or are they still considering your application, as is mine? I'm presuming that's standard for the pool!? What date were your interviews? Maybe I saw you!

    Must have just missed you; I arrived on the evening of the 10th. I did speak to a few law applicants though.. Well fingers crossed for the outcome. We may both end up there yet!

    Nice?! It'd be brilliant! Unbelievable, but brilliant. Can't say I hold out too much hope however. Don't you just hate all this waiting?! By looking at the dates on that blue sheet, at least it looks like the pool process gets going quite quickly!

    The quicker the better! Just don't give up! I know people have been pretty gutted about getting pooled but I'd rather have that 2nd chance than getting rejected. Just keep hoping and hope they'll open their eyes and see how brill you are.

    Yeppers! It's really terrible, especially since the postal service here is the pits. I had to phone Cambridge to get my interview dates in Sept coz' the post came a few days before the actual interview and it takes 2 days to fly there. Haha.

    My friend was pooled for law last year, she applied to Selwyn and then got another interview and offer from Churchill. They made her take a gap year as they had 20 interviews for 2 places and she was number 3.
