    Last year, King's College in Cambridge sent me an email at 9:00 am exactly and the post/letter came about 5 minutes after that.

    Is there literally anyone who thinks they won't get rejected?

    Any other Downing applicants just waiting for the inevitable rejection tomorrow?

    Southampton (and I'm a northerner )
    Remember Easyjet & Unibag in case you go to Southampton; we're in the south & my son at uni in Scotland flies there & home with 1 large piece of hold luggage & a piece of hand luggage, which is cheaper & quicker than the train. The rest of his stuff we sent in strong cardboard boxes from Big Yellow Storage or similar for £48; cheaper than us driving 9 hours up to Scotland, staying overnight & 9 hours back home the next day. Good luck for tomorrow!

    It`s the oxbridge applicant mentality to assume youre not gonna get in so youre fine if you dont and pleasantly surprised if you do

    Me, for Economics

    I live 5 minutes from the college, do you want me to sneak in and take a peek?

    I'm halfway there. Not very sure, naturally, but there's always hope! Stay positive.

    EU students do not have free tuition, but it is indeed 20% of the English fee ... Note to dual nationals Brit & another EU nationality, apply as a dual national till Brexit is a fact. I currently have a son at St Andrews & an Edinburgh applicant, both dual nationals & both considered EU applicants - drawback smaller offer/applicant ration for EU than GB & non-EU int'l

    20% of the English fee is pretty insane Thanks for the information!
    I thought we do? I read that you could get it back from the SAAS

    No one wants to sound too confident, as anything can happen tomorrow.
    Also, most people get rejected in the end of the day, so an applicant can never be 100% sure that he/she will get an offer.

    As one of my teachers said, it's better to think no and get yes than be adamant you will get in and not. I'm praying for a miracle though. Either way though, I think tomorrow there are going to be tears.
