Since many people are looking to see who is applying to their respective colleges, I decided to make this thread! Also if you happen to get pooled/reallocated to Merton, you are more than welcome to join the thread!

To introduce yourself:
Course: French
Predicted A Level Grades: A*A*A
Why Merton: It offers accommodation for the whole of the course, it's beautiful, the people there were super nice and welcoming and I really like the location!

Please feel free to discuss all things Merton related!

Course: PPE
Predicted Grades: A* A A A
Why Merton: I sneakily checked the professors' interest and specialisation, and decided that I have similar interest as Merton's professors. But it's also because of the comparatively small size!

Really can't wait to hear back from Merton college! hope it will not be too long =(

Course: History & Spanish
Predicted: A*A*A

I chose Merton because of it's small, academic, and extremely friendly feel, plus, J.R.R. Tolkien taught there!

Funny isn’t it, I found it to be the most friendly, fun college, (the ice cream on a really hot day helped) but I hear it’s known as “the place fun goes to die”...

That suits me! I'm going to university to study and make new friends, so Merton seemed like the perfect choice...I mean, it also doesn't hurt that the college is right behind the history buildings!

I got reallocated to Merton for Law! Applied to Queen's College. its weird though I assumed reallocation meant that my application was considered weak, but Merton seems to be one of the colleges known to be academically rigorous. Ah well just gotta trust in the process when they say reallocation is to even out applications across oxford.

Honestly reallocation can be very random especially pre interview since they haven’t met you yet. They were probably a lot of queens applicants and randomly some were moved around! But anyway, congrats on the interview! I’m sure you’ll love Merton!
