    How do you feel? nervous I think I probably have about a 60% chance of getting an offer but meeting the offer is the easy part because STEP is hard.One interview went very well and I don't get how they could reject me for it but the other went disastrous and given the standard of those applying I would likely be rejected based on that interview.I am very pleased with the offer but now I am feeling stressed over meeting the offer and living down there and there was probably a typo in the offer saying II and II I am assuming they mean II and III.

    How do you feel? I'm actually going to Cambridge! :eek: I was quite worried when I saw the envelope, which was A5 and thin - a small envelope doesn't mean you've been rejected. I was expecting an A*AA offer, but that doesn't really matter - the main thing is that I GOT AN OFFER!

    How do you feel? Disappointed, but not surprised. At least now I can focus on the important stuff. Since I now know I'll definitely be going to uni in America I can stay with my American friends and do film as a second major in uni.
