The Big 'Which Cambridge College?' Thread Watch
my personal favourites are caius, sidney, emma, jesus. but you didn't list them.
[obligatory]but all colleges are great, you'll love wherever you go, we can't make the decision for you...[/obligatory]
But you're missing by far and away the most awesomest college ever...
...Newnham. (Where we don't use words such as "awesomest").
OP, if you're trying to narrow down what you want, the best thing to do is go to open days: nobody here can realistically tell you what's right for you.
*laughs, a lot*
I couldn't even remotely give you directions to Downing or Pembroke if you put a gun to my head, so they're out for being completely nondescript. I find it difficult to have a conversation with 90% of the people at Trinity while drunk without immediately mimicking their accent, so I'd last about four hours there. King's and Clare are alright, I applied to Clare (though got pooled). King's is probably a bit too touristy and a bit too alternative for me, I quite like dressing up in gowns and stuff - if you're gonna go to Cambridge, you may as well revel in it.
I agree somewhat. When else in your life will you be able to stroll around in sub fusc (unless you become an academic)? What is this accent you speak of?
You don't wear sub fusc at Cambridge.
So posh you can see them physically straining to get the words out.

Posh people are great fun, I think.
Other than your own college, which of these do you rate most highly? Please feel free to give your reasons.
Trinity is lovely, but very very grand. Terrible formal, mediocre bar, but they do have an awesome mayball!
Kings = far too touristy, and full of students cutting through to get to the sidgwick site. Having said that, they have a lot of really good ents, they use their bar etc very well.
Clare - awesome bar. Only disadvantage is that 2nd years (and some 3rd yrs) are housed way away from college, up the hill. But Mem court does back onto the UL
Pembroke is probably alright, the people I know there are nice and I have been there but I can't really remember it
