As a prospective Cambridge applicant, I've browsed over some online pages and articles where a lot of current/past students seem to gather and discuss issues related to the university. A couple of examples would be the "Overheard in Cambridge" Facebook page and "The Tab" online university newspaper.
Obviously stereotyping happens with students of all subjects and colleges/universities but I seemed to notice a lot more jokes/comments directed towards mathematics students studying at Trinity (or "Trinity Mathmos"). The general idea behind the stereotyping/jokes being that they were all socially inept/weird/losers - you get the idea.
I kind of get where this is coming from seeing as Trinity attracts a lot of students who competed in mathematical olympiad competitions so they tend not to be your "average" teenager but surely these guys are the minority and not the majority?
Just wanted to get some more perspective on this as it's something I'm taking into consideration before applying. If I were to get in, I wouldn't want to be automatically labelled with the stereotype and stuck with it for three years.
