    just looked at the offer holders chat.... :banghead:

    Why did they have to tell us about the pool? Why not do it without us knowing, make the decision on a rejection or fished and then tell us.
    I suspect that historically, more candidates needed re interviewing? I don't know... Being pooled sucks if you're impatient like me.

    Hang in there!

    I think people hear in order of the college they've been pooled to, not their original college. Also, you might like to consider that's lots of colleges have only given out interviews so far ( as these have to be sorted out first), so direct decisions for international applicants might be coming in the next few days.good luck!

    I got pooled by Newnham for Philosophy - any other philosophers swimming or been fished?!
    Newnham is amazing for Philosophy - right in front of the Sidgwick site, and a lot of people get firsts (the quality of supervision is high).

    Today's update report is now attached to the first post in this thread.

    tldr version:

    290 users have posted on their own account to say they've been pooled
    66 have reported offers, of whom four were reclaimed by their preference colleges (two by Downing, one each at St John’s and Magdalene)
    29 have been called for interview, three (one economics applicants, two English applicants) to two colleges apiece (ie, 32 interviews in total)

    I'm afraid I'm at work all day today and out this evening, but do remember that the FAQ covers most people's questions. I do not expect any new invitations to interview to come in today, but direct offers can be expected.

    Good luck to everyone, and commiserations to those who have already drowned. Kudos to King's for getting on with it and letting you know quickly.

    I was told by Fitzwilliam that i will be having 3 interviews instead of the normal 2 for my re-interview on friday. Do colleges normally put in a more intensive interview process for poolees to make sure they are up to standard?

    I think higher the number of interviews... fairer are the chances. Good luck
