    I apologise if someone has already asked, I only briefly checked the past few pages, but have any engineers actually heard anything *other than offers from their original college*?

    Hello everyone.
    I got pooled by Trinity College for Maths with Physics and am still waiting for reply.
    I got 2A* for A-level Maths and Further Maths before I applied with average UMS 100% and 96%, following with AS Physics and Chemistry 96%, with pg 7A*.
    Does "with physics" affect the chance of being fished? And if I have not received anything yet, does it mean I am done?
    If there are anymore Trinity poolies please reveal yourself so we can share our blue here;D
    The process is so torturing.

    But most of the colleges that were going to fish already did so...
    Still, until the 14th we will never know!

    To be honest, I admit that I think it's unlikely I'll be getting an offer soon but so does everyone when they are in the pool. I guess just keep hope and if you really really want to get into Cambridge that badly, then re-apply next year. I made myself a promise if I get at least 3 A*'s this year, I may take a gap year and re-apply.

    Although I'm trying to work out where she'd get the list of successful applicants from, as we've not been in school and UCAS doesn't update... :holmes:

    Anyway, I really hope you hear soon! Make sure you let us all know when you get fished
    I don't think I will! But thank you good luck to you too! Xx

    Long story short, you sit around waiting for a phonecall or email saying that you've been given an offer ('fished from the pool' as many say), asked for another interview, or not given a place.

    The OP is extremely helpful so I recommend reading it a few times.
    Thank you! But since I'm an international applicant from Malaysia, that means I don't have a second round of interviews right? So all I can do now is wait and pray fervently that I get fished out.

    Was literally just about to write a message to you - really sorry to hear of your rejection, but at least King's told you early on instead of prolonging the trauma. Where's your second choice? You're gonna do unbelievably well no matter where you go, it's Cambridge's loss!
    Either Durham or UCL. I haven't decided yet. But thanks for the kind words, they're greatly appreciated I'm happy they got to me quickly but it's still negative news. I was thinking about it for quite sometime during school (because I checked my email around 11 and there it was) so it's still lingering on my mind.

    That's the way the cookie crumbles

    I know we never talked, but I've been lurking in the Cambridge threads for quite a while and just want to let you know how sorry I am I really thought you'd get in - there's no justice left in this world (or, well, this pool).

    Nope, still waiting. Pooled from Tit Hall. I don't think any Engineers on here have heard back yet.
    I've been pooled for engineering at caius and haven't heard from anyone yet

    You applied to queens as well didn't you? Is it just me or does your letter say you can hear from them about another interview between 5th and 10th? (whereas everyone on here is saying between 5th and 7th)

    Pick UCL, I'm gonna need some friends in Laaaaaaaandaaaaaaan! Yeah, it's natural that when you want something so much it'll hurt to have it taken away from you, but try to find comfort in knowing you were good enough but the numbers just didn't work in your favour. Not to mention the fact that Cambridge is not flawless, and you've ducked a massive workload and potentially poor social life by not getting in. Every cloud and all that

    I have decided that the purpose of Cambridge pooling is to lower disappointment levels over rejection, as candidates are left begging for a rejection letter to end their misery.

    I got pooled by Trinity too, but for straight Maths. There were two Trinity Maths Applicants who posted here, about their offer from Churchill. Unfortunately, I can't really predict what's going to happen, or I wouldn't feel in Limbo myself. However, only 6 colleges have so far contacted Maths applicants who have been pooled (of those posted on TSR anyway). So there's still hope. If not, judging by last year, Trinity will inform us on thursday and put us out of our misery.
