    Yeah have you seen if anyone has been fished yet for geography?

    My friend was fished earlier today for geography, she was called and got an offer, but I'm not sure from where.

    I can't tell whether having a low ums % is good or bad at the moment, as it obviously puts you at a disadvantage to those with higher, but also suggests that there was something else good about your application/interview that got you in the pool despite the low ums! Argh! Definitely overthinking everything right now :s

    Cheers Indeed I do, I really ought to just be satisfied with what I've got, a lot of people would kill for an LSE offer!
    Some people almost chose to go to LSE over Cambridge law until about April (and some, probably never change their minds even.)

    I know that's not terribly helpful as right now you want to get in. Good luck, but either way it's not the end of the world.

    Where does this figure of "50% chance" after a re-interview come from? Is it that they might have 5 places and re-interview 10 of us fishes, or something else?
    It's the overall statistic drawn from the figures published by Cambridge (see the link/s in the OP). Within that there will be variation by subject and, possibly, college. I've certainly seen at least one example in previous years where two TSR users got called to the same college for reinterview for the same subject and both got offers. Remember that you collectively represent around 10% of the poolee population, and not all subjects are represented. So just take each opportunity on its merits and try not worry about the competition!

    Do you think it is significant that none of us ex-Jesus applicants have heard anything? Surely once you're in the pool, it doesn't really matter who pooled you?
    That you haven't heard anything has nothing to do with which college pooled you. Everyone in the Pool had a fair chance of being fished, according to the strength of their application, not which college they applied to in the first place, if that's what you mean. Otherwise, assuming you have been fished, it's the college that's done so which will be in touch at some point. Colleges have only just received confirmation of which of their applicants didn't get fished out of the pool, and will be processing that information over the next few days. Jesus is usually reasonably quick in letting you know if you've been unsuccessful.

    I realise you are anxious and that this is a stressful time, but negging me for advising you to use the search function is pointless. I didn't create this system; all I'm trying to do is to help people navigate their way through it and understand what's going on.

    Got fished by Robinson today at about 4 think I need to learn how to reply in a phone conversation when over the moon and serving customers at Millets at the same time
    :rofl:

    Well, if I'd been your customer (a) I'd have known what you were talking about and (b) even if I didn't, I'd have been very pleased for you
