    It'll surely be harder to do a postgrad at Cambridge if you didn't do undergrad there.
    No it will not hold you back AT ALL.

    Offer rate for postgrad applicants for masters at Cambridge:
    Imperial 33.5%
    LSE 31.4%
    Surrey 27.7%
    Warwick 34.2%

    Yeah that's true. My first interviews went quite well at Jesus, then I got pooled and had more interviews which were just a train wreck. I also regret how I made myself sound so stupid in the interviews!

    Oh, usually being pooled means that you're good enough to go there, and they want you, but they don't have enough places I wonder if I was pooled and not fished or not...

    St Andrews?

    And where do you get these statistics?

    plus I forgot to ask this but do you have the statistics of where American students are most likely to study in the UK? I remember you posting it somewhere on tsr but I forgot where.

    I hope that's the case! Yes it would be nice to know whether they were really close to giving you an offer!!

    I'm okay Cambridge's course seemed perfect, but I've been hoping for the best while mentally preparing for rejection.

    Not really, I'll be either going to UCL or Imperial which will be pretty cool! London will be quite different from Cambridge, I do prefer Cambridge, but London offers a whole other set of opportunities, and it'll be great!
