heya I am going to be applying to Oxford this year, and I am so torn between my 5 top choices. I'm really struggling to find genuine reviews/analyses of the colleges and personal opinions on which would be best.

I am looking for a college that;
- Is progressive and diverse in culture, has a strong state-private ratio
- Is good for Law
- Has kitchens available to 1st years to self-cater
- Has a community feel
- Good social spaces

My thoughts so far: St Johns, St Edmunds Hall, Worcester, Wadham and Balliol.

If you have any ideas/opinions - please let me know!

If comitment to inclusion is high on your priorities, Mansfield is a clear winner. The 2020 admissions report again finds it the only college close to reflecting the proportion of state school students in the UK. At 94%, it raises serious questions about places like ChCh and Magdalen - still struggling to exceed 50% https://www.ox.ac.uk/sites/files/oxf...ort%202020.pdf
LMH is also serious about diversity, and has surroundings second to none.
