    Is it appropriate to contact my originall college to try to find out something about my application status? Has anyone done that?
    No, not at all. I asked the same question, don't do it.

    Unless you mean that you haven't heard at all yet (not even whether you were pooled/rejected/offered a place), in which case it should be fine and you should contact them imo.

    Yep here and completely drained. I just want news I (almost) don't care what the outcome is , but this feels like an awfully sadistic torture. Where were you pooled from
    I got pooled from Christ's, you? Tell me about it, I've refreshed my email every 30 seconds since I got the letter...

    I most probably was autopooled. My UMS was good but I bombed the interviews.

    I must say, gentlemen, I do miss the applicants' threads from before decision day

    True, but we can't just give up. We're made of tougher stuff than this

    My view:

    Go to Cam => win
    Go to Durham => Study an actual chem course, live in a castle, get a 1st, win University challenge => win

    So I can hardly complain?

    Don't give up though!

    when you start to dream of being rejected/fished you know it's time to occupy yourself with something slightly more productive than refreshing your email as though you have a nervous twitch

    So are we going to get called for re-interview or was this the last day? The Winter Pool PDF says it was, but my Queens' letter says otherwise?

    what time was your e-mail fwiw?

    If it came today then that gives me hope. If interview requests are being given this late, then surely offers come next?
