I think this is a little bit premature if you mean that no more interviews/offers are going to be given out. Lots of colleges are still probably undecided over who to accept and not to, and the early offers/interviews are more than likely given to those whose interviews are very soon, purely out of an administrative reason. I can only remember 2 people been given offers and 2 reinterviewed, which isn't very many at all, especially considering how many people on here were pooled.

It seems the never-ending waiting game goes on...

There are at least 5 threads concerning the pool.

Could we have an Official one? Perhaps even a 'sticky'?

at least you've got another interview. i think you may be right adhsur, i have given up hope now - I thought 8pm would be a time to listen out fot the phone but that's gone so I think my chances are gone now - which is irritating. i now have to go to school tomorrow and face everyone - that'll be fun.

There is still time for them to phone you!

They phoned me at nine pm, and that was a Sunday.

And they phoned me at 10am this morning. It's going to vary between deifferent colleges and subjects - some might just send you a letter offering you a place instead of calling you for interview or letting you knwo that you have a place without further interview by phone.

It's not over till the fat lady sings and she hasn't yet found her music!

I haven't seen anyone pooled for English yet. Is there anyone out there who has? And have you heard anything yet?

I know a girl who has just been picked from the pool for Magdalene but only found out when she rang asking for interview feedback. This suggests she will be sent a letter soon, but wouldn't have known about it otherwise, so Jess and Adhsur, all hope is not lost!

I was pooled from Pembroke...63 people for 10 places apparently. I'm not sure how that compares to other colleges for English though...
Do you know of any pooled English people who've heard anything yet?

No haven't heard of any others. There don't seem to be many on here - the boards seem full of NatScis and Lawyers! Did you do a lot of reading before the interview? If so then what? I did quite a bit. I really hope I find out soon. English is heavily oversubscribed though so I'm not too hopeful. All I really want is an interview so that I can at least have another shot at it.

I did quite a bit of reading...lots of different things, although looking back I really wish I'd read more Shakespeare than just what we've done in school. I don't think my Shakespeare-specialist interviewer was very impressed by that ¬_¬
I know what you mean about wanting another interview...well, they have the whole of tomorrow to ask us to come for one *pointed looks in the direction of Cambridge*
