    How on Earth did this happen? Can't believe I'm going to be a Cambridge fresher...

    Are there any fellow Pembroke or Philosophy students here?

    Something just occurred to me and I'm scared. I don't have my actual grades yet, just the track confirmation. What if Cambridge only accidentally confirmed my place and I'm not in at all?

    Subbing in case anyone comes along with questions about either Catz or MML, or just generally.

    It's ok! I got my grades just now and I got A*A*A*, so my place being confirmed wasn't a mistake. I'm actually a fresher!!!!!!

    Thank you!!! Now I can breath... And eat that ice cream I'd been saving for drowning my sorrows. Ben and Jerrys is always appropriate, whether as a celebration it a comfort food

    Congratulations. Now it's time for you guys to think about things like buying gowns and deciding if you want an owl, a cat or a toad.

    What do you mean by owl, cat or toad? Which Colleges keep owls or toads?

    It's a Harry Potter reference (IIRC) to go with the having to buy gowns.

    Ah, okay. Now, i get the reference. I thought you were refering to certain Colleges like Girton, Hughes Hall or Trinity.

    I've basically known I got in since January since I finished school at the end of last year, but it was good to finally see the confirmation of that. I'm coming over from Australia to study law, and I'm super excited. Anyone else here coming from overseas?
