    Today was pretty sobering - certainly a feeling of sadness slightly overwhelming the joy over on "the other forum" and at DD's school. There seems to be an element of "crap shoot" about this process, but at least it will be over soon and, although this is a life-changing decision, it's not "make or break" in the long term. The halo effect is strong and intoxicating, but a sense of perspective comes in handy at times like these - may all decisions be for the best!

    I was there Sunday-Tuesday I must've seen you!?? And yeah I went to the porters lodge at 1am in my pjs one night and he came to my room to remove a giant spider hahaha! They were really nice! And yeah they were really smart that's why I'm so scared!! Good luck to you too!!
    That's so sweet of them!!!! Honestly if there was a spider in my room I would have probably cried and done the exact same thing, bless you! The one with the Polish sounding surname was obsessed with my surname because it's Cambridge... how ironic when Blue Cambridge gets rejected from Cambridge... (the name was NOT intentional!). Aww now I'm hoping you get in!!!!!

    Certainly an element of sadness in the Ox Thread. Good luck tomorrow!

    your avatar is a representation of my mood rn, fluctuating as wildly as a sine wave....
    Oh god me too. One minute I'll be ecstatic that the waiting will be over and I'll know soon where I'm going to university and I'll be so happy with the idea of either going to Cambridge or my second choice. The next I'll be in the pits of despair thinking about the negative implications of my inevitable rejection. (Currently though I'm in the "meh, it will be what it will be" mood)

    Does anyone else think it's a little harsh that I woke up this morning having been dreaming about it and convinced that it was Friday and I had an offer?

    I'm sure you won't get rejected!! That is actually so cool that it's your surname though surely they should give you an unconditional just because of that??? Hahaha but seriously I'm sure you'll be fine I think everyone's doubting themselves now!!

    I shall try not to rant for ages. But last year, I believe on this very day, I was in the very same position as you lot - sitting at home, wondering what would happen the next day, knowing that the decision had been made ages ago, and not sure what to think.

    If memory serves I dealt with this my writing a long post on here, trying to put across my feelings, my knowledge that ultimately I would be fine whatever happened and the dissonance of being unable to really accept it. I knew my interviews had not been great, but at this point I had analysed each second of it in slow-mo replay like Match of the Day - there was not much left to think about.

    Ultimately, I did get an offer, and indeed into Cambridge itself. And I'm not going to lie, it is a great place to be. But it is not the be-all and end-all. It's so deeply cliche but also so deeply true that Britain is chock-full of world-class universities, and I'm so sure, so utterly sure, that whatever happens you will all do just fine.

    Getting to this stage is really no mean feat - be proud of yourselves. And remember that whatever happens, you are a legend at your subject for even trying.

    Good luck :-)

    Is anyone waiting until you get home from school to open or are you all just going to open the email in school? One of my friends opened his rejection email from Oxford in front of the class and it was pretty awkward, and depressing...
    Definitely waiting until I get home, mainly because I'm getting a letter lol. Unless I get pooled to an emailing college

    Thank you! Just arrived at Selwyn, nice to be greeted by a porter who's spent time in my area near to where I live, it's comforting! I feel hideously underdressed though, walked into he porters lodge and saw a bunch of guys wearing black bow ties 😳🙈
    Oh the Selwyn porters are lovely! I stayed overnight before my interview and they were so friendly and welcoming.

    (Original post by liziepie)

    I looked up Sheffield and persuaded myself it's a good backup, then I went to rowing and did some heavy weights. But now... Idk :confused:

    No. At least I don't think so, because my school asked us to inform them about Oxbridge decisions.
