I'm new so please excuse me if I seem a little ignorant! Basically, I'm applying to Cambridge this year for History, and I quite like the look of Homerton College. My teachers have tried to tell me not to apply there, as it's a new ex-teacher training college, and have encouraged me to go for a bigger, more traditional college.
Could anyone offer any thoughts on this? If I told people I went to Homerton, would they laugh at me?
