    I know, its pretty odd that the two of us got fished by Magdalene. I shall see you next year it seems! The only thing i don't like about Magdalene is the fact that the accommodation is very varied and you aren't guaranteed an en-suite but hey, we got into Cambridge!

    some people are never satisfied. A few hours ago you were s****ing your pants and now we are worried about the en suite

    What is the difference between being pessimistic or being a realist in this scenario?

    Oh haay!! Good to know there is someone else like me, out there in the deep, dark depths of this pool and no, no luck yet. Which college were you pooled from?
    Murray Edwards.....But it's one of the biggest fishers in Cambridge and if I've been pooled from THAT.... You went for Selwyn right? Best of luck to you!!

    Is auto pool just for A level students? Or is there an equivalent for Scottish students?

    Well my UMS avg is 96% for Maths and 95% for Further Maths but I'm not at all sure about how well my interviews went, I think I didn't do very well in the one with Dr Johnston and Alex Shannon. Really just hoping for a place anywhere, waiting is the worst. How were your interviews?
    Exactly the same for me, thought that one was pretty patchy... My other one went pretty well though mind! (I thought anyway)... Who knows, not feeling confident about hearing tomorrow...

    Yes, AAA

    If your heart isn't set on Bristol I wouldn't go tbqh. They gave me an offer anyways~
    They must have liked you then! Yeah, I doubt I'll go...
    Hope you get good news from the pool soon! (if you haven't already..?)

    Yeah it is. Ah, I haven't had time to really research Magdalene much except google it and thought, "aww pretty" before getting all hyperventilated again. I have looked at the 'finance matters' bit though, which was the only down side I saw. It seems very expensive to eat there.
    It may be expensive to eat there but accommodation is much cheaper than at UCL where my second choice is. It's about 60 pounds difference per week I think! But the bathrooms are a bit annoying!

    lol I guess. Doesn't matter much though.

    Thanks. You too. I haven't been fished yet, but those around me are. I can live whatever, as I've said before I have other dreams. The only part I'll truly be pained by is not getting to meet the awesome friends I've made on tsr who have been fished or have offers. I'll miss them. I truly will.

    every time someone from CompSci gets fished I feel like this


    WHY WON'T YOU LOVE ME CAMBRIDGE, WHY??
    There's still a fair few of us swimming around, and the very slight chance that TH decide they love us after all...
