What's the point of this?

There isn't one...
May I propose new rules?
You can't hurt/ heal the same college twice in a row
Ypu can use all 5 points on one college
You can't use all5 points for hurting or healing

It might speed things up?

Why would any of that speed things up? If you want it to be quicker, you need to have rules that incentivise negatives specifically.
Perhaps that you can't use all 5 to heal (but you can to hurt)? Or we could cap a college's score at say 40 (i notice John's in the Cambridge thread is on 60 - that will take a stupid of amount of time to come down!).

It is an uncomplicated, simple and pointless game of fun after many weeks of emotions testing and stress bursting in Oxford application, awaiting interview, interview preparation, doing the interview and facing the outcome. It is a stress-free change. No batteries or rather no comments required which may be hurtful, patronising, condescending, ego boosting etc.
Actually it is not totally pointless. Unsuccessful applicants could hurt the colleges just like using a punchbag to vent their feelings of rejections. Likewise successful applicants could rubber-stamp colleges as if their respective colleges are the best in their mind.
Ideally, be college-blind and play. If one's college is eliminated, there is no need to lose any sleep; if one's college is the last one standing, there is no need for a song and dance. However, a bit of good feeling celebration caused no harm.

I do not think that there is a need to change the basic rules for the game. So far ten colleges have been eliminated. Be college-blind and play the game. By all means, play it too with college loyalty. Slowly and surely, there will be the last college standing.
