    To anybody who's interested, I emailed my college (Magdalene) on Monday night asking for news, and today at about 11 I got a reply. It says that they can't tell me anything yet as 'Decisions on Winter Pool applicants are still being made at this stage' but that 'you should be hearing the outcome of your application by the start of next week'.
    I have decided to interpret this as an almost definite rejection, they just can't tell me yet for some unknown reason. We've definitely established that almost all of the decisions have been made. This just makes no sense...
    However it means that your file isn't with them so you still stand a chance to be considered by other college... Not a bad news I guess if you forgo the extra waiting...

    They could have my file back and just have a policy of not giving out rejections until a certain day? It could mean anything really.

    Rejected from Homerton. Lol at how people are randomly negging me.
    I don't think they're meaning to neg you. I nearly did it to someone the other day when they said they'd been rejected. It's like a reflex "opposite of like" - I think people forget that it negs your rep rather than just saying "Oh, that's not good".

    Well you might be right but as long as there's no rejection letter, you are still fighting for an offer! Good luck then I guess, It's long out of our hands...

    Yeah I was down and seriously disheartened... Cambridge is the only varsity that I applied to abroad... though I have my local offers. But my friends and family were really supportive and I managed to finally get up on my feet despite the week long torture... Just hope for the best and may your effort be fruitful

    Dear Minerva,

    I was fished for Geography earlier today by Lucy Cavendish. What confuses me is that the offer is for 2014 - which I didn't apply for. I want to start this year, as I already finished secondary schooling in November. Is there anyting I can do?

    I wondered this too, but then realised it was rather pointless. What will be will be

    Maybe they do actually make further decisions at this point? Even the winter pooling document is a tad ambiguous.

    Guys in the winter pool - don't get down and keep focused, i was in that myself and it all worked out ok in the end

    the thing is its easy to get so stressed and worried but really, at the end of the day these things are out of our control so we should just hang tight and cross our fingers
