    Not really the orthodox modus operandi, but then there aren't any set rules.

    Personally I think it's better to write a response if you want to show support...

    Engineering is one of the subjects that they prefer applicants to take (useful) gap years. Whether or not that interests you is personal but it's definitely a positive sign (even if you are annoyed by the conditions).
    Thank you but yes it annoys me because I am already on a gap year

    The same happened to me! Did you apply for a deferred entry? I didn't! This is confusing:s
    They're a mature college. You have to be 21 (and female), hence deferred entry.

    Hmmm I didn't know there was a separate quote for med students.....it seems we're stuck in the same boat my friend, my college seems pretty slow too.....and I mean SLOOOWWW......people didn't start getting rejection letters until the last week of January If you want, you can e-mail them, requesting that they send their response letter via e-mail rather than by post to help try and speed up the process.....not much though you can do after that I'm afraide....

    Good luck!
    Thanks a lot. Im afraid that I need bunch of luck. Well what about you? Being fished up already?? Otherwise best of luck to you as well

    Pooled by Queens' for English, and getting more nervous every day that goes by. Since I'm an international student, I have no point of reference for why I got pooled, but I expect it might just be because of my age.

    But when life gets you down, you know what you've got to do? "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swiiimming, swiiimming, swiiimming. What do we do? We swim, swim. Hahahahahoho! I love to swiiiiiiim!" :cool:

    Drowned I was pooled by Newnham for Philosophy, and the rejection letter arrived this morning. Keep on swimming all you fish still out there, and I think we should all be proud of ourselves for how far we got, fished or not!

    Really sorry to hear that At least you have closure and you know you're still a great applicant! If they sent me a rejection it should really have arrived by now since I don't live far away, always tomorrow's post Which course did you apply for at Downing?
    Geography...I expect they havnt sent them yet :/ still, you could always call them and ask what's happening, I think coz the letter was dated 8th they didn't speed up my rejection or anything by calling :P

    I have read the pool documents and the simple fact is that it is a mistake to say we are swimming.

    The swimming was completed on Friday/Saturday and we have been put into boxes.

    box 1. those they want to keep (offered - informed or waiting to be informed)

    box 2. those they want to interview

    box 3. the very few with a B mark

    They clearly state that if you have not been notified by the start of interviews then it is likely you will not be getting an offer.

    The majority will be box 4 - rejected or waiting to be informed of our rejections.

    Sorry if this sounds harsh but we have to face the facts that the vast majority of us who have not been contacted are waiting for disposal and the manure prople will be picking up us shortly!

    Sorry if this has been asked already but....
    I was pooled by King's for English and fished by Churchill and Fitzwilliam, and had both interviews today.
    I didn't want to sound arrogant so I didn't ask in the interview - but what would happen if both colleges wanted to make me an offer? Would I get to choose, or would they decide between themselves?
    TOUCH WOOD TOUCH WOOD TOUCH WOOD I DIDN'T JINX IT :P
