    Yep, me Hmmm, have to admit I'm trying to withold judgement until I know if I'm fortunate enough to have been pooled (I'm sure if I somehow managed to end up in any of the colleges it would immediately become the best), but King's is exceptionally beautiful and I liked the relaxed atmosphere. I'm a wannabe philosopher btw. I was intending to start this thread weeks ago but never got round to it, so thanks! Good luck

    I was helping out at the interview desk at King's, so probably walked one or two of you to your interview/test/room...hopefully none of you were one of the people I walked to their interview and walked so quickly they ended up out of breath and probably went into the interview hyperventilating.

    Good luck

    ** i'd like to withdraw comment above, Girton looks like a nice place**
