Default For anyone wondering... I failed

Cambridge rejection letter came today... um, slightly dissapointed that they, through pooling me, admitted I was good enough for the university, but I still have offers from York and Edinburgh and I'm still waiting for replies from St. Andrews and UCL.

Anyway, this was just to let everyone know that I failed :'(

Better than getting into a really good college and buckling under the pressure, wink wink...

Don't feel bad man. I only got accepted by one University myself.

You'll be fine I'm sure.

You really can't expect every place you wanted to go to accept you, be nice but just not realistic. As long as you get yourself a good education and enjoy where you do end up going for it then it's all good.

My ex was pooled and then rejected by Cambridge, although at the time she wasn't my ex =P it hit her really hard, but in the end it worked out and the fact is that they just are rubbish =P

Well....I can honestly say that I know exactly how you feel...I got rejected by Cambridge too but only at the very very last stage (they gave me an offer conditional on the A levels and getting sufficient grades on STEP 2 and 3.) I got the A levels and STEP 2 but just missed out on STEP 3!

So...I know it feels awful but the bright side is that you still have offers from two excellent universities and could have offers from two more excellent ones. So look at it this way - after we both complete our excellent educations and end up running the country - we'll make Cambridge pay dearly for their crime of rejecting us! ;D

I'm not quite sure how but I was thinking of sabotaging their boat in the boat race...or closing them down completely and selling all their assets to Oxford...I haven't decided yet....

I wouldn't call that failure. The fact alone that you're getting into a university is good enough I'd say, it doesn't have to be the "best" one.

Could always be worse, you could've done what I did and not go to school at all.

If St. Andrews reject me I'll definitely be considering York as my next choice.

and TK... perhaps we could like, flood the whole of Cambridge. Then they'd know what it feels like to be in the pool :P

Sad to hear dude, I truly am.

I would have killed to go to Uni, but circumstances and politics made it unviable :'(
