Hi everyone,

just had my pool interviews on friday and although its only monday i'm desperate to find out how i got on (acceptance or rejection), has anyone an idea of the timescale or has anyone heard from their pool interivews, in particular Girton and Robinson?

cheers

adam
I got pooled to girton (also new hall), havent heard anything from them yet. While i was at new hall the bloke said that they try to tell people who've got offers as soon and that you have a much better chance of getting a place from the pool interviews than from the december ones. he said that colleges rarely interview more than 3 applicants for every 2 places they have in the pool.

i dunno i thought it was pretty *****y of them, if i was a girl a single sex college would piss me off no end. oh well least the teaching is mainly departmental, the fact i gotta walk down a hall to a shower not so important i suppose.

no it is, I keep being told newnham formal is great, or is that newhall? I can't remember, I'm not fussy, I'll go to both at some point

I'd feel uncomfortable going to a single sex college, but that's probably because I went to a single sex school. Quite frankly I've had enough of that.
