    Apologies for late response to this - was trying to post and my mobile internet was not co-operating.

    The bottom line here is that it would be pointless to contact your college until after 15 January - and there is a good chance you will have had news, one way or the other, by then.

    I know it's hard but the only thing to do is try not to think too much about what's going on, and concentrate on what you need to do to nail those exams.
    It's fine now, I received an offer from Girton today. Would it be unwise to ask my original college why I was pooled?

    Your whole file is put for review. Including your interview scores and anything else extra.

    North Wales. Yeah I hate being in the pool but it slightly preferable to a straight rejection. Can I ask what on earth you are doing surrounded by so much Esparanto material?
    I'm from North Wales too! Where abouts are you?

    I applied to Christs originally but was pooled. I got an email this afternoon after they couldn't get through on our home phone. Good luck!

    Huh? You don't. Autopooling is the worst, it just means you look good on paper but were poor in the interview. The only people who get fished are those who had good or decent interviews but didn't make the cut due to so much competition at a certain college this year.
    Well I'm pooled from St. John and I think I had 2 great interviews with them. But my UMS is low and so far all people I've seen got fished all have UMS 93~
    I guess my chance is very very slim right now.
    I mean if you get UMS 93~ even if your interview is bad then they will still pay more attention to your file and just ask you to re-interview but like me, low UMS (just about 90~), they will not consider again I guess.

    I haven't heard anything yet either I know, I really want them to just tell me now - it's really distracting! Btw, did you take a gap year?
    I know right! I have a mock tomorrow and haven't been able to do any work, i'm too distracted! No, i'm still in year 13, did you?? Oh and what languages are you doing?

    Because I will be firming it... duhhhh
    I had unconditional offers from UCL and LSE and would probably have chosen LSE because on the Law course you can take other modules...so ignore the doubters if that's where you end up. if you put down intercollegiate halls for accommodation you get to live with students from UCL and Kings as well.

    Good luck being fished

    It was the thing that kinda convinced me to consider linguistics as a university course - it was a beautiful idea (I'm a romantic when it comes to people with such solutions to auxiliary communication).

    Thinking about this reminds me of my College interview - my interviewer was very interested in my study of the language. There's even an Esperanto society at Cambridge!
    oooh that sounds like the type of thing which will help you get out of this pool! Good luck with the swimming. I will be following this thread to see what happens

    No autopooling, I was pooled with 43 (777775, 3 TOK EE) if it helps
    thanks I havent heard anything from clare yet, I was just wondering how it works with IB students cause I heard that if your UMS is over certian percentage you're auto pooled (have no idea what UMS stand for though)
