    I think perhaps your original college only accepts you if someone declines their offer.

    God knows, it all seems so confusing. I've read my letter infinite number of times, and I still don't really understand. I hate how it reads at the bottom of the letter that they will get back to me "shortly"! How long's shortly? A week, month? It's so....unexplained.

    Oh and my letter's identical (apart from the College name) to musicman's, incidentally.

    By the 10th, if you don't hear from them, it'll be a rejection.

    I've applied to Jesus for music, and my letter says that:

    At present, we are unable to give you a final decision about your application, which is still under active consideration here at Jesus College. We have also made your application available to other Colleges in order to maximise your chances of gaining a place in Cambridge. As a result, you will either:

    -Be offered a place here at Jesus;
    -Be offered a place at another college;
    -Be invited for further interviews at another college;
    -Be unsuccessful in obtaining a place.


    I presume then that i have been pooled and my college is still considering me??!! It's annoyingly unclear.
    My interpretation of this is that your college haven't made a final decision on whether to admit you, but to be fair, they are allowing other colleges to look at your application in the pool. The reason for this is because if in the end, they decide not to offer you a place, you would be disadvantaged because your applications was not put into the pool.
