How competitive is trinity college Cambridge for law?

Hi everyone how competitive have previous students or anyone that knows to get in for Cambridges college Trinity college for a law degree? Additionally I’m trying to choose a college to apply too so if anyone knows of quite poor ones in terms of conditions or any great ones please do let me know as it would be great help.
I don't know about law, but any course in Trinity is super competitive... (Trinity is considered the 'best' college in Cambridge alongside Kings)
This website is good for choosing which college to pick (there are no poor condition colleges, the uni is super wealthy, own majority of land in Cambridge city centre...)

Due to the pool system, if you are a good candidate you will get a place at Cambridge anyway. Apply to the college you liked the most. If you get into one, you would have been able to get into any.

i am a bit concerned that trinity might reject me pre-interview if there are too many strong candidates?

It only has 5 or 6 places a year. That's why, it attracts less applicants. Most other colleges have 8 to 12 places a year.

thanks again! sorry to bother, but i am a bit surprised that magdalene college has such high application acceptance rates (i calculated according to the past years, its around 17.3%), i am surprised because it's known to be a very strong law college and many singaporeans/hong kong students apply there as its a jardine college (and those applying for the jardine scholarship are presumably very very strong students, esp given the caliber of education they receive in hk/singapore). anything i am missing? or is it a wise college to apply for that has a strong law faculty but not overly competitive?

Peterhouse has a high success rate too. So you should choose either Magdalene or Peterhouse!!! 😀

This year as a college, we have decided to interview all students who we believe are capable. However, after careful consideration our admissions team has decided to only give offers to students who have achieved higher than 30 in their LNAT, due to the competition.
