    Found out via UCAS Track that the other colleges let me drown for HSPS, and Downing didn't take me back, so I guess this is goodbye for now, kids.

    The last week waiting in the pool was made so much more bearable by the rest of you fish in a similar state of limbo posting on this thread, so thank you.

    As for me, I'm now coming to a university near you! (If you're going to Edinburgh, Leeds, Glasgow or Bath....)

    So, final words (this feels like the opposite of an Oscar acceptance speech, on dear):

    To those who drowned in the pool, we had a good run. Cambridge wouldn't have put us there if we didn't have a chance of getting a place. We're going on to bigger and better things, I promise you.

    To those who are still waiting, don't lose hope. There's every chance you might get in, and if you do, I'll be cheering for you from my slightly-less-prestigious-but-nonetheless-fantastic university

    Until we meet again

    Minerva, I received two sheets for winter pool.
    One saying that I had from 5 of jan to 10 of jan to get an offer.
    Does it mean is it finished for me?
    It is unlikely that you'll get an offer now, but not completely impossible. What subject and which college did you apply for?

    Subject Engineering
    And I applied another college but got pooled to Girton. So now I think I have really small chance. And my UMS is not as good as the people here. :mad:

    I for one would join this. It's not that I dislike Cambridge, I just want to prove to myself as much as anyone, that I was good enough.

    I haven't been on here on a while, but it seems everybody left swimming has given up all hope and are now awaiting rejection. It is all very depressing don't get me wrong, I have always been expecting rejection, and was actually delighted to even be pooled! But I thought we could receive offers up until 15th? Everybody seems to be saying it is certain we won't. I'm just a little confused
