Hello, I was wondering whether it would be a poor decision to reject Oxford and re-apply again the next year. I want to take a year off, and while I could defer, I'm pretty unhappy with the college that I got a place at for academic and superficial reasons (its quite far out). Would it be wrong to risk it all and reject Oxford and then re-apply again? Would they hold a grudge?
don't do that. Oxford is extremely competitive, so i would apply this year and ask for a deferral. Then if you don't get in, apply next year, thereby increasing your chances.

I wouldn't do this tbh, there's no guarantee you'd get interview again. College choice is far less important/problematic than people think. At the end of the day, do you wanna run the risk of no Oxford offer/degree at all, just because you go;t pooled to somewhere a bit far out? :dontknow:

Well I think deferring is a better option for the year out.
This seems like a super high risk strategy and you could well find no offer at all 2nd time round 9if you get an offer this cycle).

Oxford is a pretty small city especially the bits by the University I doubt much is farther then a 20 minutes by foot. If you go to any other uni you might find that the off campus accommodation is just as far (or further).

Is this college that you got a place at - is it already a place or just an interview reallocation ?

Seems like a big risk if you want to go to the University. What college is that bad btw?

Would be interested to know what college is bad academically?

No colleges are that far out. Plenty of the central colleges actually have second and third year accomodation further from the centre than the more distant colleges.
