Pretty shallow insights from the Profs and they managed to miss Worcester off their table of colleges, one of the more popular colleges.
Not very surprising. The larger colleges offer more subjects and will therefore get more applications.
I am not sure what point, if any, this thread is making. Including colleges that are graduate only (eg: Wolfson), and Fellows only (All Souls) appears extra pointless.

There is hardly any difference between the top 20 colleges.

You have posted a bunch of pretty meaningless numbers, which, as noted above, don't even include Worcester, but do include colleges which do not have undergraduate members. What's the point of the list? I know that this forum is obsessed with rankings and tables, but do any of the rankings and tables discussed here really mean anything? There is, for example, a poster fixated on "research quality", a meaningless concept based on how many academic staff members at a university do some research. Other posters obsess about other pointless metrics. All that this appears to achieve is to make sixth formers more anxious than they already are about what they might do after they leave school or sixth form college.
