    I'd wait until mid Jan, but maybe an email would be less annoying/invasive on their time?

    Anyone that has applied to Manchester, how long after applying did it take for them to ask for a portfolio? I sent mine off three weeks ago and have still received any information!

    Was exactly a month for me. Then received my offer a week after I'd sent it.

    Thinking about it, they've got a lot of winnowing down to do - far more than anyone else. They could offer places to the "obviously great" candidates immediately, but if I were them, I'd bide my time until the majority of candidates have been interviewed and then start sending out the offers and rejections, leaving a few "maybes" until the last minute

    Mind you, we're expecting about half of all interviewees to receive offers...

    My figures (possibly based on historical figures) are:

    Applications: 2000
    Interviews: 450
    Offers: 220
    Places: 100

    Which do you disagree with?

    Offers part. I was at their summer school and I heard something along the lines of 110, and it wasn't places.

    There's no way they'll only give out 110 offers. 220 sounds like quite a lot, I agree, but given that many of those with offers will either go for Cambridge or not make the offer, they'd have to do more. Maybe 200? Unless, I suppose, they are lenient on those missing offers.

    I think my figures are based on a published 11% offer rate - but I'm not sure if the 2000 figure is correct!

    Hello everyone,

    Have been following this tread but didn't even have time to set up an account! Applied to Cambridge, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Bath and GSA.

    Has anyone here applied to Sidney Sussex at Cambridge?

    Good luck to us all xx
