    surely if they wanted us they would have called/emailed by now? why would they wait 2 days? especially considering the pool closed on friday so nothing's preventing them

    Can't be bothered to work weekends quite simply?

    If they were truly organized they could of gotten the entire pooling business done in December and everyone apart from the very small number of re-interviews would be getting a straight offer or rejection rather than leaving 3,500 people in limbo for two weeks.

    Well it really all all started on Saturday afternoon, and not all would have worked today seeing as it's Sunday. All of us poolees will just have to wait I guess.

    Do you think I could e-mail my college claiming that I haven't received any letter yet (even though I have, telling me I've been pooled) and ask them the status of my application, in the hope that they tell me I've been fished and made an offer?
    Forget it, frankly.

    I'd agree with you, it's just I've seen a few people saying they/ they know people who received their offers 3-5 days after the pool closed last year. Also, the amounts of TSR pool offers made so far this year is considerably lower that last year, suggesting there's more to come?

    Just wishful thinking I guess...

    Around 50% of people who get reinterviewed get offers.

    I'm a medic that good pooled from robinson college. Nothing but tumbleweed for the last two days staring at my email and phone - I've basically been rejected haven't I?

    If I had an interview they would have called me by now surely. People have been called with offers, so that's unlikely; Which leaves the possibility of an open offer (unlikely imo), or just a rejection tomorrow. Is this a fair assumption?
    It's far too early to make the assumption that you've been rejected. Yes most people will have been called by now for their interviews, but I'd expect a few stragglers in the morning. Offers will be coming through over the next week, and rejections too. The latter are unlikely to come through tomorrow, however.

    Has there been many NatSci poolees fished today? (In comparison to other courses)
    Tomorrow is the last big day I imagine.

    My hope is sinking ever so slightly :/
    Check out the daily summary attached to the first post of this thread. Tomorrow is by no means the last 'big day'.

    Did his college fish a lot of people last? or subject? or did he not notice a pattern and that's when he happened to get contacted? how long after he got pooled did he get fished?

    Sorry for all the questions, this is what desperation does!

    This is my thinking of it

    Ordinarily the majority of offers would be given out on the second day. This was the case last year, however the second day last year was a Saturday. This year is a Sunday and I can't believe many tutors will be sending out emails on a Sunday...sooooo tomorrow being a standard working day I would go for Monday to be D-day

    So far from friends and whoever I've known Newnham magdalene, girton, Corpus Christi, Robinson, kings, Sidney Sussex to have made offers from the pool
    Can you add any more you know of so I can cross them off this list of yet to reply colleges! Best of luck, you're totally right though, this isn't fair around jan exams, especially for those in the 3,500 swimmers who won't hear for a while :/

    I saw Caius fished someone yesterday for MML.

    Edit: Also check Minerva's OP for reports on which colleges have been making pool offers/interview calls.

    Thanks! That's given me some hope

    D-day indeed. The poolies last stand! I hope we all get our offers, and remember that what we've had to bear by just being in the pool, is an achievement already. Not because Cam wanted us, but because of the insurmountable pressure and anxiety.

    Poolies forever~

    It always happens that it takes several days for them to work through the lists. Some colleges are faster than others, and some are very slow indeed. The real pressure over the weekend is to get the interview invites out.

    No, isn't - I'm looking at this now and will post separately.

    Can't say specifically. Overall the success rate is around 1 in 2, but there isn't a subject or college breakdown, I'm afraid.

    No, I did them in year 12, and I'm applying in year 13 as a normal applicant

    I'm losing hope too. The pool is drying up.
    I'm sorry did you get in the pool or are you waiting for an offer from the pool? Not sure I understand... Because don't worry, the pool answers go until the 14th, apparently.
