I found out today that someone from our school was pulled out of the pool and offered a place, without additional interview, at trininty college, supposedly the best college at cambridge. What are the chances of that?? I find it ridiculous (and annoying as I don't like her ) Anyone else her of Trinity pulling from the pool?

Trinity do that more than you might expect, they aren't really the best college and probably not the hardest to get into either. It's just that they're probably the best known.
They also take enough people that they can afford to gamble on a few people from the pool.

I'm trying to think if I've ever heard of anyone being pooled to kings, queens, emma or clare. Not sure if I have, maybe Queens.

It certainly isn't unheard of at Trinity.

A couple of years ago King's had 30-odd applicants for 5 medicine places. They rejected all but two and took three from the pool. It seems that if the candidates arent up to standard even the competitive colleges will take better ones from the pool.
