Basically a thread for applicants who've applied to Magdalene for 2020 entry. I would very much appreciate if you can type in the subject you've applied for and why you've chosen Magdalene. Good luck everyone!

Hii I've applied for Chem eng via nat sci. I chose natsci mainly because the tour on the open day was one of the best (the student was super nice). also some small stuff; the new library, the riverside and the fives court.

I'm from New York, I applied for HSPS and chose Magdalene because I spent 2 weeks in Cambridge and it was one of the nicest college I saw and based on the prospectus I got I liked the description of it

Yeah my experience with Magdalene is more of an internet affair. I've never visited Magdalene (usually I get sidetracked at Cambridge and end up at Churchill for instance) but when was I researching for colleges online I came across this beautiful building and thought 'one day I am gonna study there' - it turned out to be Pepys Library so I'm now applying to Magdalene

I applied for law at Magdalene as well but haven't received an interview yet. Then again, I forgot to send the confidentiality form and they only received it today. I'm expecting a response by next week. How have you guys been preparing, i haven't done much. And do you guys know whether we'll recieve a response by email or post?

I think we're going to receive the response by email...Oh well, my sixth sense tells me it's going to be the end of this week as next week might get too busy for the admissions office (when the pre-interview assessment results reel in, there are going to be a lot of decisions to make)....I just hope I'm right. Daily post to say I'm stressing out.

See I thought I would be tomorrow/Friday. But then I thought that the deadline for the Feedback form is Friday, so then I thought it might be next week instead of this week.

From last year's statistics, apparently some colleges also issue invites over the weekend haha

Does that include Magdalene? :P
Apparently, Johns had a Feedback form deadline of 7 Nov, and according to the spreadsheet they only started issuing invites from 11 Nov, so I think for Magdalene this week might be possible but optimistic haha

I don't think so sigh...anyway, Magdalene's earliest interview offer last year (from the spreadsheet) was 14 Nov (for Education) and there were also invites sent out on the 15 Nov so I think we can afford to prop our hopes up haha
