I applied to the department's most competitive Master's course and was admitted without interview. I think this is largely in part due to my research background being a strong match with a very well established professor in the department. They are also a professorial fellow of St John's, so I chose that as my college.
I wasn't admitted into St John's, and what's more, I am currently without accommodation.
I am wondering why St John's didn't admit me. Given my 'easy' admission into the course, I would have thought they'd make a case to admit me into the college. I keep thinking that their reason was they weren't convinced that I could meet the financial conditions (at the time of application I had a substantial amount to cover).
What do you think?
