The bad:
Bloody expensive - 2nd most to Pembroke last yr
Far out from centre - but you might like that

Jools, Do potential employers look at the college you went to. Will the fact that I went to Somerville go slightly against me as compared to other Oxbridge candidates.

Not really. PPE at Balliol or Merton maybe more respected than PPE at Somerville or Pembroke but at the end of the day it's the same uni and unlikely to hinder your employment opportunities.

Somerville is great. I am not an Oxford student and didn't apply to the uni, but I have some friends there who love it. It seems very laid back, very friendly, good student-tutor relations.

Highly unlikely college will affect your emplyment prospects. Most of the country aren't Oxford graduates, they won't give a stuff. In any case, you're not going to change college now or reapply for that reason anyway, are you??

there is no getting away from the fact that certain colleges have more "prestige" than others but at the end of the day, getting a job comes down to you. having an oxford degree from any college gives you a great advantage, then its down to you to perform in interviews. someone from a "pretigious" college who performs poorly in an interview (remember in a job interview they are now looking for more than just your academic ability) is not going to get the job before someone from a different college who really impressed.
