Because it's pretty, and has a famous choir and a long impressive history, and is famous generally. Probably that's about it.

It's exceptionally famous, alongside Trinity. It also has a reputation for being very informal too, which is probably what attracts to many people that don't know a great deal about the univ and its traditions otherwise.

Oh your post has made me so sad.... I have an offer from Wolfson.....5 E
haha, i wouldn't sweat it. My numbers are a cross between my personal view of the place (the college as a whole) factoring in people I've met from the colleges. There was an utter d1ckhead post-grad doing medicine iu remember from wolfson, hence low score.
Kings got low (should be lower) because they are socially inept and don't have formal halls.
And I'm not sure why I would like Queens (was it alaric who said that) don't have much of an opinion bout them to be honest

'twas I indeed. I was suggesting that your prestige value might be higher, I mean the name sounds pompous (but has so many other meanings ) but they do have the funny bridge. Which the tour guides love to tell people is held up by gravity alone... except it isn't. It's bloody great bolts.

But seemingly more valid having spent the last two and a half years living and socialising here, than someone who's one claim is that they have been accepted. And only on sports merit.

Hmm, yeah. Foolfarian, your right I dont want to go to Cambridge, especially since it appears to give you insomnia. Thats right, your pathetic, it reminds me of prep school 'I'm older than you so I'm better', dear god. Its strange you know at this very moment in time I have two cousins at Cambridge. My dad went to Cambridge, my grandad did and of guess where my dad met my mother. Thats right...Cambridge. Kind of runs in the family, dont you think?

Academically I probably have equally or more impressive grades than you. I got an A* GCSE in year 9 and did a full A level in year 10 at of course it was at grade A. Not to mention straight A's at A level whilst playing a sport professionaly. I was picked because I am bloody good at my subject.

Hmmm, I have to say, the only thing you've done in this post is made yourself look ridiculous, a total laughing stock. In all honesty, it doesn't matter how many of your family members have been to Cambridge, he's there and you are not at present-it's through experience he has commented.
Also, the revealing your pre university grades (which mean absolutely nothing to anyone that has been through the university system) just shows a deep sense of insecurity.

Oh, ok. So the fact that I spent reasonable amount of time in Cambridge last summer (because of cousins being there) and the fact that my family members have told me greatly about the place, that clearly means nothing.

The reason why I posted the fact that I did GCSE and A level early does mean a great deal infact, for it is the subject I will be doing at university. Kind of shows that I have an aptitude for my subject proving my place at Cambridge is valid, nothing to do with insecurities.

lol...you're doing more damage. Test of aptitude? Don't make me laugh! Seriously, I don't think anyone here is too concerned about where you've spent your summer or what your family members have been doing.

Anywyay, best of luck to you.

I was just pointing out that I have prior knowledge about the place because of my family. I'm not saying I have more knowledge than someone who has actually lived there for a couple of years, of course I dont. My dad was very instrumental in picking my college, if he didnt go to Cambridge, I wouldnt have had that help. Cambridge is by no means means to success though, my uncle didnt go there and he is more succesful than my dad, its not everything in life, that was one of the first things I was told, by my dad.

And with respect, foolfarian calls people 'plebs', if thats not insecure, I dont know what is.

None of my family have ever even been to university, so I wouldn't know about that. And I never mentioned age whatsoever. It's more of a case that I feel my opinions on colleges are validated by the fact I'm here, and have been for some time. I would never say that other peoples like helenia, alaic etc opinion on colleges are wrong, because they are also here. However, I don't see your reasoning behind "daddy went to cambridge, so I know all about it" because universities change so much. (cambridge less so, but it still does). I mean only 30 years ago you had to wear gowns around town, and all colleges were single sex.
As for academia, I don't doubt you are an utter genius at school. But the amount of people in the country who rival and do better than that is pretty damn high, and they don't think it gives them the intrinsic right to preach allknowing judgement on a place they've never lived in.

I never said I had all knowing knowledge. I obviously dont know all about it, I never claimed I did. My original comment was tongue in cheek, being completely biased because that is where I'm going, despite the fact I know it isnt the best. Perhaps yes my dads views are outdated, but if it wasnt for the fact that he wanted me desperatly to go there, I wouldnt be going. But two of my cousins (one is actually doing medicine) are there now and have told me about it, so I have an idea of what to expect. Hope that clears things up.
