    If you live in the same area as your friends and they received it today but you haven't then that is some strong evidence that they sent yours out later than theirs , no ? Did you apply to the same college and course ?
    2 people same college, different course. So, yes I'd imagine there was a delay. Which is not a good sign.

    I have yet to receive a letter, a lot of my friends have already and we all live in the same borough and some in the same area. I guess it's a mystery .

    Same area, but surprisingly my letter hasn't arrived.
    Why can't they just send emails? :confused: Is it because they are traditionalists?

    Why not? I think they are probably the best we have.

    At the very least they tell us which are the 'good' colleges for pooled applicants?

    I see what you could be saying though...
    The only college fishing regularly seems to be Girton, and chances of getting fished do look quite small...

    Do you mind if you describe this friend of yours who has an offer from Sidney, nothing too detailed just one thing that stands out about him when you see him as I know someone who met quite a few people there and so he might know him.

    Asian with long hair ?

    BTW I have something for all of us who are yet to receive a letter:
    Last year someone did get an offer from Cambridge on the 6th
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...d+2011&page=41
    Meaning that just because we haven't heard on the 5th like everyone else it doesnt mean we are guaranteed a rejection !

    I'm afraid I think last year letters were sent out on the 5th. There were also delays due to the snow for some people. So, last year may not be the best year to compare with.

    Are you already at Camb or did you just get your offer? Yeah I've got my grades so UMS doesn't really bother me. Interviews are part of the application not all of it.
    My point is, if Cambridge bother to make auto-pooling requirements and set them at 3a*s then they clearly deem this a good level to sieve of those who don't deserve it- and once they've publicised this stuff, they need to stick to it!
    Sorry for late reply. I got my offer today. I see where you are coming from and I do believe than those in auto pool can get an offer, all I am saying is it is better if you are in the other pool categories!
