Hey guys, I've heard rumours and sayings about different colleges, can some of you confirm these please? =/
---Although all colleges are lovely, I heard that Clare and Emma are the most friendly ones, is this true?
---The popular colleges are Emma, Clare, St John's, Jesus, Trinity and Downing? (Just interested to know)
---I heard Emma students, espcially medics are workaholics who work relatively more/harder than the normal medics at Cambridge, although all do work hard!
---Clare had the most applications for medicine this year and they have a cut-off point for BMAT to eliminate ppl pre-interview
---Caius, Clare, Emma, Downing, Trinity all have a relatively higher affinity for the BMAT (anything below a 6 is likely to end in no offer/pool (unless other parts fo your application are outstanding and make up for it)
Anyways, rumours aside. After talking to someone on TSR a while back, I really want to apply to Emma now for medicine. But what I'm scared of is their shocking reputation for being the best. And the BMAT stuff - I fear I might not be good enough but I really want to go.
Should I still apply when the time comes?
