I was pooled by St Johns for Computer Science and I now have an interview at Robinson.

Are my chances less than they were before I got pooled or higher?

That was me! My friend was re-int. for law at Churchill last year and those were the stats. I think it depends entirelyon the course/college. It seems a little unfair to drag you there for a second interview when the odds aren't great but I suppose they want the best.

Good luck at Robinson - I think it's a really nice college.

Law
Do you think law would be more competetive than computer science? I would imagine its more popular.

Robinson, known as the multi story for a reason. it's the most modern built 1970. Very unpretentious with great people, high state school etc. Good pool table. they get a tad protective over it. Seriously, you can't figure out your chances and it's best not to try. Just BE YOURSELF - Robinson of all places will appreciate that and it will help you to perform better. Good luck!

I applied there last year - was rejected but it's really nice - modern but very comfortable. Beautiful gardens, excellent rooms, nice atmosphere. It has a chapel - but I did't see inside it.
