    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.

    You may be re called for interview (I think) but the chances are, you won't be because you're an international applicant (and understandably so).

    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)

    Just been given a call from Sidney Sussex for a medicine reinterview.

    I suppose I should be happy for being given another chance, but I'm not sure how much more of this **** I can take. I've got 5 exams coming up all in quick succession, with perhaps a 'life-changing' interview (seeing as I've received no offers as of yet) sandwiched between the exams. Not to mention that this pooling has messed up with my revision.

    Not sure what to think.
    Congratulations, I've been stalking this page for a while looking out for fellow medical poolees. I hope you don't mind me asking what your stats were, in terms of BMAT scores and UMS %ages?
    And yes this is my first message on the forum, I finally gave into temptation and joined to ask you this question! Apologies for sounding like a desperate wannabe

    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.
    I have been following the thread since I got my letter on Thursday.
    I am starting to think that Trinity pooled way too many maths applicants..
    How do you see you chance being fished?
    The problem is most of the colleges who usually fished for Maths poolies have started (and probably ended as well). Starting to get really nerve-wrecking.

    Yeah, it's just far too much hassle to interview international applicants again. Totally understandable. Thanks again for clarifying things.

    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).
    Many thanks It'll be alright, it's just disappointing as one would imagine. I'll just write my own theory of justice and rub it in their faces

    So sorry to hear about your rejection chicken :<

    (did they ring you up? I'll glady join you at Durham at this rate though)

    Have a missed much myself? Any big Natsci fishings?
    I was emailed best of luck though

    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
    Very true I'll see what happens... I've been leaning more towards UCL recently because of the course but keep on thinking no because of London :lol:

    Bro, build a design a chapel that's bigger and better than King's' chapel and build it right next to theirs then get an even better and louder choir to out sing them.

    That'll show 'em :smug:

    The problem is most of the colleges who usually fished for Maths poolies have started (and probably ended as well). Starting to get really nerve-wrecking.
    32 of the 99 student who received Maths offers via the Winter Pool last year, were from Trinity and I'm not really sure of my chances, but I really hope that some college (any college!) fishes me out soon. Even if they ask for S,S in STEP.

    I know that as well. But apparently Churchill gives 13 maths offers to poolies last year, and I supposed it contacted all of them at about 12:30 today. If that applies all the other 6 as well, not much places left...

    It's a shame you perhaps didn't get in, because you'd have been amazing at Footlights!

    Ditto the bit about writing your own theory of justice. We should all play to our strengths and prove Cam wrong :lol:

    I got offered an interview too. It just means there is a reason for them wanting to see more of you before giving an offer. The fact that two colleges made your interview offers is a good sign - they'll be fighting over you if they want to give you a place each (although I don't that's fair - you should be able to choose which one you go to)
