    I hope Cambridge realise how brutal this process really is. Why not just delay giving out offers until pooling is complete?

    This pooling business is probably making me fall out with a very good friend of mine as I'm incredibly bitter that he's just been fished for maths (Girton).

    Ty Cambridge for unleashing the worst in me :V


    (In other news I'm being consumed by a cathartic envy. If anyone else is hoping to go to Durham if Cam don't fish them, then I hope to see you there~!)
    Argh, another maths applicant... Why can't they just hook me already

    I got pooled from Caius for Land Economy...

    I'm a current IBer so I guess I can take some comfort from the fact that my application must have been half decent seeing that there's no autopooling for current IB students (I'm predicted somewhere between 43-45)... not sure if being an international applicant will affect my chances though...
    I've been pooled for Land Economy too. You been fished yet?

    I got put into the pool by King's for history, this thread is a welcome distraction from the mocks that start tomorrow! I'm already losing the will to live, and it's still the weekend, I suspect these mocks aren't going to go very well at all haha

    I was fished last night by Churchill and this morning by Fitzwilliam (for English)... is this even possible?!
    Neither college made any mention of each other, though both are asking me in on the same day - can I assume that this means they HAVE conferred and that this isn't just a glitch / some kind of sick joke?

    So grateful but so saddened by the prospect of yet more interviews hahaha
    Hi there, I'm in (almost) the exact same situation as you! Been called back for interview for English by both Churchill and Christ's! (And coincidentally, we even live in the same town :eek:) Neither of them made any mention of the other to me either. I was worried too that it might be a glitch somehow, but seems unlikely as we know from the winterpoolofficers.pdf that they will have agreed the interviews at a subject meeting, and the Admissions Office circulates a list of interviews/offers before colleges are allowed to contact applicants. Plus I asked Minerva last night and she said not to worry, which is what swings it really I have to email Churchill back to send them my submitted essays, so I'll probably drop in "I've also been called for interview at Christ's on the 10th - this won't be a problem, will it?" I hope they will remember to liase with interview timings though

    Did either of them make any mention of accomodation to you? When Christ's rang me, the woman said "You live in the Kingston on Thames area, right, so you won't need accomodation will you, you can get there and back in a day..?" and I kind of wanted to say that it depended on what time the first interview is, cos when I went in December I had to be there for 9 so needed accom otherwise I would have had to get train at like 6.30 am :eek: - but I kind of felt like she wasn't really giving me the option of saying I needed accomodation so I didnt say anything. Now I'm worried, particularly as I've got interviews at two colleges, that I am going to be interviewed early enough in the morning to need accom, and will have to ring back asking for it after all which will be awkward!!

    I thought we'd have a greater chance what with not having auto pool.

    And your grades are CRAZY, how have you not been fished?

    Because most of the applicants are probably better than me.

    Been pooled by Newnham for PhysNatSci for Physics. Not auto-pooled [grades AA(A)C, not that great UMS] and my physics interview was a complete disaster - I demonstrated my unparalleled ability to put my foot in my mouth and then freaked out and couldn't do anything with the questions that they gave me.

    So it's not looking good... but I'm really happy to have been pooled (I was definately expecting a rejection after my interview) and have still got my fingers crossed so tight i can't feel my fingers.
