    All the colleges are equally good! Only Worcester has a lake.

    St Edmund Hall is the only Hall named after a male that's a college.

    That's right, I went there.
    Sky in the JCR too, and when you get thirsty? Well, there's a medieval well right in the quad.

    You know it makes sense

    I applied to Hertford because when I used their CD prospectus, it congratulated me for having a Mac.

    True, though this could backfire because you will be 'playing them on their home turf'
    This is true but regardless of if it's "their turf" or an abstract field they are still likely to know so much more than you about it.

    Reading up on tutors is definitely a very good thing to do, almost all of my interviews were based on tutor specialities

    It could be. But in practice it is the thread of the offer holders and the apostrophe is making me fidget.
    Then you'll love these:

    Did you really? Interesting.

    I mean, Mansfield College has a cat, and a nice porter, but I didn't know that when I applied.

    My offers from New (which said February on the letter) and it came through Track at half 5 today, so I imagine yours will come any time
    Yeah mine's come through now too!! This teaches me a valuable lesson - if I complain about something not having happened on TSR then it will happen the next day...

    Yeah, I had a day in Oxford and had to narrow down the colleges based on fleeting glimpses. Hertford seemed friendly. Sadly I did not get to see Mansfield!

    I really liked Mansfield - the only thing which deterred me from applying was its small size!

    Same thing happened to me.
    I called UCAS.

    I assume you were an Open Applicant too? (Or were reallocated?)

    It's just the campus code changing.
