    I'd quite like it if Cam just changed their minds, accepted all the poolies, and rejected all the offer holders. The offer holders have no clue how much love for Cam and your subject you need to have if you intend to not be driven to insanity by the pool. I think a lot of people who already have offers will have crumbled long before us
    A guy from my school was actually depressed (or trying to look depressed) from getting an offer thinking he doesn't deserve it. God what I won't give to lawfully smack his face.

    To be fair, if he was smug and ecstatic about it I'm sure you'd want to punch him just as much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Is there any real reason why those of us not fished have to wait so long for a rejection when they've already decided our fate? Seems a bit unnecessary given this is exam season to cause applicants more anguish.
    Totally agree. They have already decided those fishy offer at early Jan, just so pointless to let us wait like morons. It's really hard to be not distracted by this.

    I don't think so, as long as he doesn't rub on my face that I've been pooled. Besides, I genuinely like smug people.

    Downing, Jesus was my second choice but I didn't fancy the extra test, which I ended up doing anyway- Downing just didn't advertise it- sneaky.
    The *****es! There don't seem to be that many vocal English poolees on this thread. Is that because there aren't many of them? Or because we should be busy reading? Either way, I'd quite like to know what's going on, i've gotten bored of waiting.

    ps- A word of comfort to my fellow shwimmers:

    We ain't no wet fish, we're sharks, and if people are too afraid to fish for Sharks, well, we can only pity them.

    thats what I thought when they gave it to me!

    Maybe there are no english poolies cos they've all got offers... or not many have been pooled (h o p e f u l l y -_-)

    I'm hating the waiting also! The pool really screwed me up -now it's like being rejected everytime I check my emails.

    Does anyone on this thread understand why they say you can still receive offers between the 10th- 14th, when they made their decisions days ago... ???

    That makes two - two have had rejections for Geography and Engineering...
    Hopefully this means something!

    Hopefully it doesn't mean they haven't left us off the email list...
    Make that three. I just got a letter for rejection for geography from St Catz. Obvs disappointed but they sent me a really nice letter and i'm very lucky to have some other offers lined up. good luck to all remaining fishes

      Your mere 5 days is incomparable with an outright rejection and a whole year. Please, don't assume because people have outright offers that they don't deserve it nor want it as passionately as you guys too.

      This sounds a bit blunt. I do wish you all luck, but saying things like that with any hint of seriousness isn't exactly great!
