I'm going to Corpus next year! (Grades permitting, I have to keep saying that)
Anyway, I've been to Corpus for an open day and for the interviews, and from what I've seen I've basically fallen in love: it's really really beautiful, and the gardens are great- I think I remember someone saying at open day that the gardener likes to plant weeds instead of normal flowers, which I think is really cool. There're pelicans everywhere, something to do with the self-sacrifice symbolism inherent with the body of Christ. There's lots of dark wood inside, looks really nice but I guess doesn't make things look any bigger. In comparison to other colleges, of which I haven't seen much, things are just generally a lot smaller in Corpus than in other colleges, but it seems friendly and welcoming, and I get the feeling that if you get tired of the college, it's very easy to get to other places because it's practically on the high street, but is also right next to Christ Church Meadow. Also, I slept in a room right under Merton Chapel during the interview period, and that has possibly the nicest chime of any church bell I've heard...
I realise I'm getting onto unimportant facts, and things which I am only remembering with rose-tinted spectacles, but I love the place and am basically overjoyed to be (grades permitting) going there.
On the basis of balance, one negative that I can think of is that I'm allergic to nuts and unsuspectingly almost killed myself by eating cereal that I didn't realise had nuts in it on my first morning... I think that's more my fault for not reading the packet. Still, had to eat just bran flakes for the rest of the time.
