Hey I'm pretty new at this whole Student Room thing, but I wanted to join in the pool discussion.
I was originally a Magdalene English applicant, I got my decision letter yesterday putting me in the pool, and I got phoned up by Selwyn a couple of hours ago, and they gave me an offer. I'm in such a state of shock!
And in reply to Sadie, I think the 93 people who got offers from their original college are included in the 500-odd who got offers without secondary interviews, since they wouldn't need another interview with their first college. Magdalene are fans of pooling people then giving them offers at the last minute I think - I know someone in their first year there who had that happen to them. Nasty tactic - but I suppose it assures them the best people going.
