I know someone who apparently got a HSPS interview invite already, but I think they might have applied to a college like Downing that does HSPS interviews earlier - not sure how many do this
My friend also got an interview offer from Downing HSPS too!

That apparently has the worst law admissions tutor. Like no one from the 17 applicants last year got offers and only 1 from the pool got an offer.

This isn't quite true. See https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....ply/statistics

Downing do their HSPS interviews earlier (last week of November I believe). Check the website of the approximate interview dates of the course for the college your applying to- usually interviews invites are 3 weeks prior.

It's even scarier than that:
In 2019 (the last application cycle), Churchill made 1 direct offer from 23 direct applications, and then accepted 6 pool offers.
In 2018, it was the exact same, but with 19 direct applications.
In 2016 and 2015, they didn't accept a single direct applicant for law - just people from the pool.

The above person used the word "assigned". So it must've been an open application...

Hi everyone,

I'm setting up this thread to help the anxious interview invite waiters like myself to see when offers are coming in from which colleges for which subjects.

(Not sure whether to title the 'Official' or not as I haven't seen anything else like it this year so far.)

Comment on this thread if you get an offer!

Credit to AspiringUnderdog and ImprobableCacti for the 2018 interview invite thread that's inspired this one. The data was really interesting and I'm sure many people will benefit from this one too!

Good luck to everyone in their admissions process!!!
