Hi,
I am applying for a MSt at Oxford, and I have to give a choice of college. Since I have never been there I'm left a bit in the dark.
I am looking for a descent price/quality comparison, since a MSt is not too cheap.
I was thinking anout Lady Margaret Hall, Wolfson and St John. Any ideas about these, or other colleges?
Thanks already!

Recently I heard that Corpus Christi is very strong for classics. They also take about 3 undergraduates a year to read for Classics and Archaeology, which is a quite a bit, so it must be strong in that subject too. Furtermore Corpus Christi is one of the smallest colleges around. It seems to be a very friendly college. Corpus is conveniently located, just off the central highstreet in an old quite lane. It is able to accommodate all graduates for three years, which is a plus I think. With regards to costs, it's just below average I think.

I don't know about Wolfson, but St Johns and LMH are also very good colleges. However, LMH will not be able to accommodate you for the complete duration of your degree, so it might be more expensive.

I recommend you to do some research on this. Just consult the college websites and decide which ones you would like to go to. Do not only consider accommodation, but also the research interests of the tutors. If your interests match that of the tutors, it might make it easier for you to get in.

Yes, yes, Corpus is the best college.
