Oxford colleges social life

Can someone give me a rundown of which Oxford colleges have the best social life? Also I’m more concerned about getting into Oxford rather than actual college so does it make more sense to make an open application - ie will this increase my chances of getting in
The social life of a College is only as good as the JCR committee who organize it, and this is a variable factor that changes from year to year. There is always plenty going on in Oxford, either at Colleges or the 400 uni clubs and societies.
Making a preference for a college or an open application makes no difference to your chances of getting into Oxford. The application process can often shuffle you around anyway, and any offer may come from an different college you either put down on the UCAS form or were assigned by making an open application.
