heya Image I am going to be applying to Oxford this year, and I am so torn between my 6 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 Edmund Hall, Worcester, Mansfield, Wadham and Balliol.

If you have any ideas/opinions - please let me know! (right now... I think I'm really leaning towards St Johns, but my thoughts keep changing)

What course are you applying for?

Heya - sorry I don't know much about law, so I can't suggest much on that, but bear in mind that you'll have good teaching everywhere! In terms of having a more progressive vibe, Wadham and Mansfield come to mind first for me (though Mansfield is one of the smaller colleges, I think there's about 75 per year). St John's is one of the richest colleges, and I think it does provide some good financial support, but I won't lie that as an institution (i.e. some of the people who run it) it has a slightly more snobby reputation. This isn't to say that all the students are like that, though - that's just my impression.

If you do want to compare the colleges more closely in terms of demographics, the admissions statistics are available here: https://www.ox.ac.uk/sites/files/oxf...ort%202020.pdf (It's a bit of a chunky document, sorry about that!()
