    It's such a horrible feeling because you can't actually let go when you're in a limbo. Do people reckon that the majority of us will hear tomorrow (if we get into another college) ?
    If you're gonna be re-interviewed, tomorrow will probably be the last day you'll hear just so that it's reasonable to arrange travel etc. But there are some people that won't hear until after the 2nd round of interviews as colleges will have an interest but are comparing you to the people they are re-interviewing so won't make a decision until that point

    My theory is those on 93% who just got autopooled with a bad interview (me) are at a disadvantage to those with just below 92% who were pooled due to a good interview and a very nearly as strong paper record. We'll see.

    Right. So Ive been stalking this thread since Minerva's original post (thank you btw) and I've been feeling really bitter about everyone's fishing stories (lol) and literally as I was refreshing the page (on my phone) I got a phone call from a blocked number and long story short I've got an unconditional offer from Sidney Sussex for AMES. I was pooled by Newnham. And this was just at 18.22 so keep faith colleges are still working! All the best, it feels so good to be on land again though

    Well considering my obsession with Coldplay I should probably post a song as well. This one's probably apt for most of us.

    Here's another rather appropriate one.

    Another compSci, first of all congratulations on your offer!

    Secondly, mind I ask what your UMS average was?

    Pooled by St Johns for Maths, would really like an offer from any college. I got a desktop calendar of inspiring quotes for Christmas and I never really remember to change those so I only just got round to changing it from Thursday 3rd. The quote for Friday 4th was "Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat".

    I thought that was surprisingly appropriate. Anyway, it at least inspired me to finally sign up to TSR after following this post for the last two days :goodluck:
    Hey, me and you are in the exact same position! Maths at Johns... What you thinking about it all?

    Just wondering do you think your surname affects when you will be contacted? Ie if your right down the bottom end of the alphabet are you less likely to hear in first few days ?

    Repeat for each email I get.

    Thank you. Wish they also scored people on sense of humour - you'll get 10 out of 10.

    Hope so, someone said earlier that most of their friends who got direct offers got them 3-5 days after the pool closed. So crossed fingers!

    The clinging hope is horrible though, I can't get anything done and every time the phone rings I freak out..
    Ah! Hopefully! I know, me too. My heart skips a beat whenever the phone rings. Guess we'll just have to wait.
