    Well, I wouldn't have put King's or John's that high on internal rep! Aside from that, yeah, I think pretty fair.

    Well, I know this is a little off-topic but I'm going to be in Cambridge on Saturday (staying at Clare, in fact), but I'll only be there for about half day. Is there anything particularly exciting that I just HAVE to see/do while I'm there (bearing in mind that I'm used to medieval cloisters etc)? Any colleges that are especially worth looking at?

    Trinity should be seen just for the sheer size of the place, although no doubt being an Oxonian you'll manage to be somewhat scathing anyway. Erm, I suppose you should see King's, just so you can say you have, Clare is nice but you'll see that anyway, and apart from that, whatever your friend thinks. Go to the fudge shop though!

    TheWolf - King's is pretty, but it's not that special. All the old Cambridge colleges have architecture like that. The chapel is pretty spectacular, but I go past it every day and it has become a bit mundane.

    Ok, two things to do:

    Go to the fudge shop and get some fre samples. I highly recommend it

    Meet Helenia if you are staying in her college nd both being first year meds you can compare notes.

    There you are, a whole day planned out for you.

    Why so much ranking of colleges? The most important thing about a college is almost certainly the people you'll be studying with, and there's no way of knowing about them 'till you get here.

    Agreed and the ice-creams are the best too, or maybe that's just me.

    Clearly you have never been to the honey ice cream shop in Tywyn, on the Welsh coast

    I've heard that too about Yorkshire selling the best icecreams (don't believe it) but the best ice-cream I've ever tasted was from a fudge shop! (I think ).

    The best fudge is from Roly's in Totnes. Icecream? I like my own home-made stuff, but Rocombe Farm (few miles down the road) is delish

    yes rocombe farm is good but still doesn't compare to roskilly's (sp?) in cornwall.
