    Ooooh I'm kinda in the same position. Although I've got Durham and I'm waiting on Warwick.

    I might considering insuring Warwick if I get in but only if they give a reduced offer (won't happen lol).
    I'm waiting for Warwick too!

    Murray Edwards Admissions - Given you chaired the Economic Pool Meeting, were more people that were pooled given direct offers or were most of them reinterviewed? I just want to know where I stand, as was I the weaker of the pooled applicants that they have to call me down to know for sure my potential (if there exists any at the moment) or is it just something Econ do as it is uber-competitive?

    Thank you once again!

    I think he already said most pool offers were not reinterviewed?

    Being reinterviewed is not necessarily to do with overall "strength" of an application. It's more likely because the candidate had a wide variation in interview scores, for whatever reason.

    No bs I'm 100% convinced that the food is actually bad. I thought maybe it's a psychological thing since one would hear bad things about caius food and it would affect their opinion but this girl I met who was applying to caius said the same thing about the food being bad and no one had told her about it either. Idk how repulsive the food must be that its unanimously said to be disgusting :laugh:
    Honestly, the food at Caius is actually better than a lot of colleges. 5/10years ago, that stereotype would've been true but it's definitely not the case now.

    Same. Are you plumping for Durham as your second-best then?
    I think so. I already have an offer from UCL but I think I'd enjoy Durham more. I really don't like the idea of living in London, especially as a student... Not sure why I applied tbh, didn't really think about it (or have time to think about it)

    Career prospects would pretty much be the same whether I went to UCL or Durham tbh. Except if I wanted to get into IB, but the more I read about it the more I think that's a bad idea. It's easy to say you'd be willing to work 100+ hour weeks for several years now when your only commitments are going to school, but actually doing it... It would be such a miserable experience... Plus I have no interest in finance.

    You thinking Durham for 2nd choice as well?

    Yeah, even the statistics for last year showed that roughly 200 of nearly 4000 pooled candidates were reinterviewed, which is a tiny proportion. Yet even on the other Econ Cambridge Forum, there were a few who said they were reinterviewed then received an offer, so I thought Economics @ Camb. just interview everyone again, unlike Nat. Sci for example I guess...

    Thanks!

    How do you know it's a good movie then?



    Damn, that's a level of crazy that I wasn't expecting 😂😂 well that's the main perk of being a YouTube star, you get a lot of fangirls. not always a good thing as they can get too crazy; don't worry you're not quite there yet (you're close though 😂)

    I have Sony Vegas pro and I know how to edit and all. Usually for vlogs content is 50% and 50% how you present it. Also making sure not to overedit like some people is important

    Yeah I definitely value a first more than YouTube success and I'm talking about the kind of YouTube success which Cambridge youtubers have achieved. Unless it's Casey Neistat level success I would value a first more 😂
    I've watched it many times before, but I don't think I could bring myself to watch it again until like 2019


    It's not like I would try to touch or follow any Youtuber home I'm simply passionateabout many things :rofl: I snapchat Joe Binder sometimes

    ok I swear I'm not actually creepy

    That's good I'm more experienced with iMovie, it's probably easier for novices like me to use. You could always try vlogging for a couple days and see how it goes. Or try it at whichever university you go to! I don't blame you at all though, I think I'd take a first over moderate-scale Youtube success any day :rofl:

    I'm subscribed to both but only really watch Joe's vlogs - Holly focuses too much on the food and not enough on Cambridge i think. But she's been doing useful information type videos over the holidays which I have watched. I like Joe better - I find his vlogs funny and I like the way he films them
    Yeah I liked her revising tip vlogs and "how I survived at Cambridge" video. I think she's definitely promoting the vegan lifestyle more than Cambridge, I can't tell if it's a Cambridge vlog or a vegan vlog Are you part of the #mossgang? I liked that Jake Wright's seem more natural, but I do think Joe is really talented at editing and he's pretty funny :lol:
