    Nooo, fellow CompSci poolee, why does this year suddenly have a massive spike in CompSci applicants...
    It must be because CompSci is the best subject, and people have only just realised it!

    Nothing came in the post today, quickly losing hope. Any news from any other phys nat scis?
    Nothing here, but I think knowing that so few other people have heard is almost encouraging At least, I think I'd feel much worse if everyone but me was getting news

    Right, I've just sent an e-mail off to my selected college, not sure that i actually want a decision right now if I'm honest. I can sense a rejection (i mean seriously what are the chances of an offer now?) and I think that although this is occupying too much of my life, I think I'd probably rather not now than to be told i was rejected.

    xD, but why this year when I apply! There was an article not too long ago how Cambridge were desperate for CompSci applicants, back then 1 in 3 people got offers for CompSci, this year more like 1 in 5.

    EDIT: And yes, I just started a sentence with xD.

    Reject me please Cambridge - I'm getting sick of this tinkle of hope you've planted inside me.

    Then I can escape from this limbo and get on with my life...
