Most colleges are really beautiful... then you see the scar from the disease Oxford caught that was the 60s. I'd really like to strangle the people that thought things like this in the middle of a 450-y/o quad was a GOOD idea
Exeter is lovely, particularly the Fellows' Garden. Sadly, the college didn't escape the 1960s unscathed, so Margary quadrangle has been completed with square blocks. Relative to other colleges, though, we've done quite well - at least the additions are the same colour as the rest of the buildings on site.
Applying to Oxford for the 2012 entry to study medicine. I'm desperately trying to chose a college, and i'm torn between; Queen's College, St Catherine's (Catz) and St John's. I was wondering if anyone could give me any feedback with what any of them are like? (Or others!) I know there are lots of these threads with pro's and con's but it would be good to get a range of opinions
