Jesus vs Trinity for Maths Watch
I need some quick advice on a question. I've narrowed done my college choice to one of two as per the title: Jesus or Trinity. I was wondering which do you guys think is the superior choice? I like the aesthetic, size of Jesus but by contrast Trinity has the prestige and reputation.
Looking for some advice,
Trinity seems to be much more competitive and obviously has a bit of a reputation. Jesus as a community (for maths at least) seems less preocupied with exam results, which can be helpful if you're less confident. ("Less preocupied" compared to Trinity I mean, not the world at large.)
By "size" do you mean the college as a whole, or just maths? Jesus has a nice fairly close knit maths community with about 8 students per year, which I'd personally much prefer over Trinity.
Of course, you may well end up pooled (possibly more likely if you apply to Trinity? I haven't checked) so applying to Trinity does not necessarily mean going to Trinity. In that sense you might be better off applying to a college with less applicants and which you know you like (i.e. Jesus).
Honestly I'm not sure which to recommend. I think you've made a very good choice of your top two.
You're surrounded by really some of the best mathematicians in your year from around the world.
