    Oxford, because I prefer the course and the place to Cambridge.

    Cambridge, because it's reputation for natural sciences is slightly better, and I've never really liked the more political nature of Oxford.

    I was very close to applying, but given that I couldn't even meet UCL's offer it's perhaps best that I didn't bother :sigh:

    Maybe for postgraduate study

    Oxford, just because all my friends wanted to apply for Cambridge and I would want to be different (although only one of them actually is now, the others decided they wouldn't get the grades for either).

    Oxford only 'cause it's closer and was always under the impression it was number 1 and Cambridge number 2 when I was growing up.

    Haa, same here. I don't even know why I thought Oxford was better, I just did.

    Cambridge, because I've heard they are more geared towards the sciences. Though if I got into any I would be ecstatic as they are both prestigious and highly rated.

    Cambridge My dad went there, and I prefer it as a place. I didn't look into either of them closely enough to be able to judge on the course though.

    Same I don't know why either . I suppose it's always the one people mention, in everyday talk and in the news and Cambridge to me seems more of a dark horse because I know little about it compared to Oxford. But to me I'd be happy with either of them only because I love places rich in history.

    Oxford.
    But both are not the 1st choice for my interest.

    Rather Imperial.
    Rather MIT. Oh yeah.

    I would probably go with Cambridge. Apparently only the very most awesome people go there. Yep...

    That's funny I live closer to Cambridge and I always though that was better
    Probably Oxford is more arts and Cambridge sciences.
