    Hah I just don't think he liked me, his interview is probably the reason why I'm in the pool
    He interviewed me too :laugh: That year the Emmanuel DoS was on sabbatical so he stepped in.

    Imagine if we got pooled by Cauis, because GT liked us at the interview? lol
    With the way he looked at me in the interview I think this is unlikely xD

    Have a feeling if I'm fished I'll probably be reinterviewed because I can see my interview scores being wildly different...

    The same GT that made me lose 5 marks in my 2nd year exam because he said in supervision something wouldn't ever come up that did then come up. :mad:

    His wife was a (very good) supervisor of mine :awesome:

    Also, it's sort of TSR policy not to use full names of university staff in posts, only their initials, since they do sometimes google themselves.

    My friend, (other) Greg got straight rejected btw, along with the Johns CompSci from my school, I'm the only CompSci from my school left now

    That happened to an older friend of mine. She ended up loving it there, and said it actually tended to be much quieter at times so she could study in peace.
    She's lying.

    Aww that's unfortunate. There were a lot of good CompSci applicants to Emma this year though (and this may in fact be true across the uni).

    Jumping out that window probably wouldn't be a great idea, it was like a mile high, although I felt pretty much the same

    I think the other thing that was really off-putting in that interview was the way they were sitting either side of me about a foot away...

    You weren't in that room... because intimidating pretty much sums it up.

    How many people applied for CompSci when you first applied?

    I don't think it was his office since we were at TH and he's from Cauis? but there were no whiteboards :P

    Not sure if it was his office, don't remember a whiteboard so probably not.

    I was in a room in TH about 6 floors up at the top of a spiral staircase, with a long table. We were at one end of the table, me sitting on the thin end and the two interviewers either side, about a foot to my left and right. Like I said, pencil and paper, no whiteboards...

    go to the first page of this thread and the very first post. at the end of the first post are documents. click on the one for the 6th (and in the future the most recent one) for all TSR stats. Obviously it will only be a sample of cambridge as a whole

    I applied to Emmanuel but was pooled, good thing is I'm doing history and so Newnham has a good location I'll probably accept in the end let's face it.
