Could anyone come up with useful criteria for picking one of the universities over the other? I'm applying for English and have found two colleges I really like; Keble, which typifies many of the things I like about Oxford, and St John's which has amazing tutors and seems like it would provide me with the best possible time if I got an offer from Cambridge.
The only problem is that I can't decide which of the universities to choose. I've visited both, Oxford slightly more, and both were nice. Oxford didn't quite live up to my expectations, which were entirely unrealistic to be fair, and Cambridge exceeded them but i had really low expectations. This just puts them at about level pegging for me. I would wait till later to decide but I'm getting pressure from my school to make a decision as two other people want to apply for English at Keble and St john's, and while my head of English quite likes me he can't hold two colleges for me indefinitely.
How did most people choose one over the other? Did anyone pick one and wish they hadn't? Any specific advice about the diffecrence in the English course would also be helpful.
