    Hi everyone,
    I applied as a mature student to one of the mature colleges at Cambridge in time for the 1st March deadline and did the SAQ by 8th March.

    I was just wondering when it's likely that I'll hear back from the admissions tutor? I received information that interviews for successful applicants will be from 4-8th Apr, although unfortunately I forgot to ask when i'll find out.

    I can ask tomorrow but I just wanted to see if anyone knew in the mean time, judging on past years and how long they usually give you to prepare, etc.

    You usually get a couple of week's notice, so it should be soon.

    Congratulations! That's great news. Good luck for the interview. Just enjoy the experience!

    I applied in October with all my grades ready, had my interview in December and got my place in January! Which college did you apply to? I'll be going to Wolfson - cannot wait!

    Just randomly came across this post - congrats! From the guy who's always studying in the club room: you'll meet me. Actually, I remember talking to some applicants back in December, you might have seen me already. ^^
