yeah lol that form is pretty annoying especially that question as I'm sure I answered that on the CAF statement part - I don't know whether to repeat myself or not..

We're in direct competition except I'm applying for maths with physics.

I'm filling out the questionnaire that came with the letter just now, this is far more difficult than any Cambridge university exam...

Die in a fire! Sorry, what I meant to say was 'good luck', but it came out wrong. :p:

"what aspects of the course at cambridge attracted you here?"
My answer here was to just rehash the first sentence(s) of the subject entry in the prospectus. "The maths course at cambridge is one of the most prestigious and challenging in....zzzzz". You get the picture. Why do they ask us that anyway? I don't think there's any subject where the major reason for anyone applying is anything other than that Cambridge is an extremely good university with world class academics and exciting courses.

LOL, good, I'm not the only one who felt like I was rewriting the prospectus on the SAQ.

However, if prompted about what I wrote whilst at interview, I can deliver a 5 minute comparison of the study at U.S. LACs vs U.S. state schools and synthesize exactly why Emma kicks both of their a$$es. I was very proud of my tiny handwriting needed to accomplish this.

ARGH! Not another TWO applicants for Engineering!? Ah well, at least they claim to take 16 of us each year, which is a lot more than most.
Well then, I guess I'll see you guys at the interview. Before then, good luck, and I hope the worst for you! (jk) :p:
Just so we all know what we're competing against, I'm doing the following:
IB diploma
Computer Science HL
Maths HL
Physics HL

Economics SL
English A1 SL
French B SL anticipated (and I got a 7 woot! )

Now to go off and start sharpening my elbows
Just out of interest, what did you other engineers put on the interview specific choice? I put Electronic Engineering and Computers and Speech Recognition. Honestly, I'm not _that_ much of a geek...
Good luck,
Pete

Just thought I'd pop my head in here to wish you all luck. Pete, you have a name that is almost identical to a Life Fellow (and former University Professor of Cultural History) in History, but his surname is Burke rather than Burk. When you come for interview you may spot his name on the Queen's Building.

Any idea when your interviews will be? I may still be around as I am staying until either the 6th or 9th.

Maths are the 4th to the 8th. I might get an interview on my Birthday . Do you think if it was on my birthday, they'd give me an offer as a present?

Incidentally, on the subject of people with similar names going to Cambridge (this really is going off on a tangent, but what do I care?), I found someone with exactly the same name as me who had taken maths at Cambridge. A good sign? A completely uninteresting coincidence? I'll let you decide...

I'm not at Emma, and nor did I apply, but I have a friend who has, and well, just thought I'd add to the Emma love - possibly the nicest college in Cambridge, apart from Pembroke of course.
