    This is going to sound really stupid - but I applied for Education with English and Drama (pooled by St John's) - and Homerton is probably my best shot, as they are the Education college in a sense. However, as someone else on the thread was called by Homerton an hour ago with an offer for the same course - do you think it is therefore very unlikely for me to offered a place by them too? Gah, I hate this system! It makes me overthink everything!

    Most of the colleges who've fished people have been the newer ones (robinson, fitz, ect), does it make any difference if you've been asked for interview at one of the older ones?

    I got invited to come for Interview at Corpus Christi yesterday afternoon you see
    I dont think it makes any difference. All colleges need to fill their places. What subject are you applying for? I'm a first year at corpus.

    When I was on the phone to the Admissions woman, she said that they couldn't email people if they'd been fished because they have to (for some technical reason) send out all the offer to pooled people at the same time. That means that they have to wait until people have been interviewed.
    Which college was this?

    What if I miss the phone call?
    They will get in touch with you somehow, probably by email. Don't worry.

    Got asked to Churchill for a Law interview, having been pooled from Trinity Hall... does anyone whether my chances of an offer have changed at all?
    They are now about 1 in 2.

    Hey international applicant here, I will be studying at another town real soon (2 days) and the postal address that I've given them is the one I'm currently staying at, so will I get an automatic email of the decision as an international applicant? Or do I need to request for it?
    I'd email them and request it, just to be sure.

    I have a re-interview, though does anyone know if another college can still ring me up and ask for a re-interview as well? Thats the impression i get from reading stuff online, where i can be re-interviewed at 2 colleges - i just want to know whether that can happen
    It can, but it would be surprising if the college you've already been called to for interview didn't mention that another was going to contact you as well. See the OP.

      Can anyone answer this?
      Once you've got a call telling you that a college has fished you and will make you an offer, how long does it take for the offer to arrive, and does it have to be a posted letter rather than an email?
