    Im sure it will if my sister answers the phone. She didn't sleep, so I didn't sleep. So now I'm sitting by the phone whilst she naps on the sofa. The devoted brother that I am.
    ahah that's so cute! are you both applicants?

    I've just been pooled by St John's for BioNatSci :/

    I was surprised, though, as I'm a deferred entry application and as TSR say "At this stage the issue is capacity in terms of places available, not capability of the applicants." - do deferred candidates still fit the pooling criteria? I mean if the issue's capacity then 2014 entry shouldn't be too competitive...
    Yes they do. And it will be competitive because they will be benchmarking you against the anticipated standard for 2014. And, before you ask, deferred entry applicants who are pooled do still get offers!

    I hope they start making phone soon. I'd rather have information than having to wait a couple more days. It's messing with my concentration

    I'm not in any way expecting a call, I am however expecting this thread to go slightly insane!
    I agree I just want to know, I'm meant to be writing a 5,000 word essay, and I've been on 600 words for a rather long time now...

    GOOD LUCK AGAIN EVERYONE

    I know it's hard but try and be kind to yourselves and not get too hooked on the idea of a 3pm watershed.

    I've got to out for a bit but I will be back later.

    Yeah, I'm definitely not expecting a call (I'm rather resigned to rejection now), just desperately hoping for one

    It's when the lists of pool interviews/offers are finalised and sent around. I believe that it's only then that they're supposed to begin contacting the students in question

    Admissions type people can start making phone calls to people they want to make offers to.

    I was pooled by Fitz too, but for PBS. There doesn't seem to be that many from Fitz, (you're the first I've found!) which could be a good sign. Keep positive, we are the select few Fitz poolers

    Besides, with a name like Mr.Fishy it's probably a precursor of you being fished haha
    Haha that didn't occur to me! Should have seen this whole thing coming!

    She is applying for Psychology and behavioural sciences. I hope to apply for Architecture but i come from a Grammar school whereas she comes from a comprehensive with poor GCSE results which is a flag in her file! So i think i stand less chance getting in The phone rang about an hour ago and i was getting a drink... I dont think I've ever moved so quickly in my life!

    I'm exactly the same. To be quite honest i think this last pooling business is all very much chance now!
