My brother has got a letter from Cambrige today (or a letter with a Cambridge postmark anyway), but is away on a skiing trip and wont be back for a week - is there anyway I can tell whether its a rejection or acceptance by the size of the letter?

I would try but he dosn't seem to have his phone on - will just send him a text I expect.

then I would say either way: a rejection/acceptance
dont think it's pool though because it should have pooling sheets
because both are possible for this size of envelope
sorry I didn't answer your question...

I expect you're right. It's very different to my Oxford offer last year - that was delivered by special delivary next-day before 10AM. This is just by boring normal post.

Natural sciences (or whatever subject cam do with is closest to physics) at Fitzwilliam. I don't really know much about it as I was away at uni when he was doing his Ucad stuff.

mine looked the same and was an offer! but i'd say they prob use the same size envelopes for offers and rejections. I was worried that it was so thin when I saw it I really thought i'd been rejected. I think u should steam the letter open and read it, tell him if its an offer and if its not then seal it back up!

Not sure - I didn't really get the full story as he's still skiing at the moment. Though I think he might take a gap year and reapply next year.

can i just say that acceptances usually come in thick, a4 envelopes, and rejections in small, thin ones. (sorry, it looks like the latter). Though it could be a pool.

Mine was a thin rejection letter! Identical to that above. The best way of finding out is to open it, and then slea it back up again

Or if not, ask him if you can open it - tell him to turn his bloody fone on lol
