I also had an interview with robinson on friday (compsci with Dr dawar and some other chap). The previous day I was at selwyn also.

Selwyn told me to expect a decision early this week.

What are you applying for?
I don't think robinson is to my tastes. I much prefer the central, more traditional colleges. What did you think of robinson?

yeah, Robinson was ok but i agree with you that there are much nicer colleges. however, at this point in time i dont really care where i go now, as long as i get in. all this waiting is doing my head in, i'm tempted just to phone and ask. its gettin in the way of studying for exams. its such a long process!!!!

how come you had interviews for two different colleges? i only had an interview at one college and they said they were deciding this week and i should hear from them or my original college within two weeks. and so the wait goes on...

Two colleges wanted me. I also filled in a preference form so that in the event they both accepted me, I would get an offer from my prefered choice. Selwyn seemed not to be interviewing many compsci applicants at all. Robinson had loads (perhaps a testament to its unpopularity??), around 8 I think. I would accept an offer from Selwyn. But an offer from robinson ... then I'd have to have a careful ponder because Imperial is great (with the added advantage that i get a flat to myself off oxford st).

There was definately 8. I was one of them!

I didn't see you though - I had a late interview and the only compsci there didnt have an interview at Selwyn.

What other unis did you apply to?

I've just got a place at Newnham too! Was it Ute who called you up? I was pooled from Peterhouse for NatSci and went to an interview at Newnham on Friday, and I got a call yesterday. What did you think of the place? It was better than I expected, some of the students I talked to did say 'you have to work for a social life' but most seemed to like it there. I was interviewed by a transvestite though (I'm not joking!) which was a bit of a shock.

Just Robinson. Havent heard yet. Did you put Selwyn as your first choice?

You might have seen me come into the lounge room briefly after my interview!

I got on the wrong train to London on the way back and it took 1h30 instead of 45minutes!
