Rejected like a fool.
University of Manchester:
University of Cambridge:
Off— Joking! Rejection.
Three different courses? Yep. I mentioned a good while ago about my inability to decide on my future, so I didn’t really decide in the end. My choices were sort of rushed because of the early Oxbridge deadline. The personal statement was a job to do for this, and as you can see it’s had a mixed success rate.
I’m pleased with my two offers, both for physics. At this present point in time I can’t choose between the two if I have to. I actually had an interview for Cambridge (or three to be precise). Evidently I failed them, and had that infinitesimal unit of hope blown away from my eyes. I accepted this fate long before the letter so the news wasn’t that bad. Durham rejected me soon after, so I’m not even good enough to be a Cambridge reject. However, I wasn’t too bothered about Durham either, I regretted applying there for several reasons (as said, the choices were rushed) and so would not have gone. Still, it’s a good blow to how you evaluate your academic character (especially when you thought you’d get an offer there).
Bristol is still waiting, as you can see. I wanted a maths choice because I like the prospect of a maths degree even if the gods are directing me to physics. I don’t expect an offer due to its competition and my circumstances, but if I did get one I’d definitely investigate, visit, and contemplate my three possible futures.
I must say one thing about rejections. I don’t know about you, but I cannot stand the phrase ‘we regret to inform you’ or something along those lines. It’s a trivial point to get angry about, but Jesus, it’s technically incorrect.
I’ll keep you updated by putting my Track record on the sidebar, and I’ll likely throw a post when I make my decision, ’cause, y’know, it’s just my future.
