Thank you, AnnieBlue! It is really tough. I'm trying to be strategic and consider every angle, even though I know there is no guarantee I'll get my college preference anyway. :P I just want to go with what I think is the best option so I don't regret it.
I'm leaning toward Oriel, just based on a gut feeling. I don't know why, but I just love the look of it and get a good vibe from it. And being a Tory myself, I would actually love if it lived up to its Toriel reputation, though from what I gather, it seems to have more left-wingers than right-wingers at the moment! I assume that any college will though, and I don't mind too much; I just wouldn't want to pick one that is especially known for being left-wing, like Wadham
