Hey I'm a prospective student looking to apply to take History at Oxford in 2011... narrowed my choices down by using certain criteria to Univ and LMH... was wondering if anyone could help me out?
First thing is, being a history student and all, is it that much of an issue where LMH is located? I mean i swear it's not even that far it just looks far out on a map. I walk to school every day which is about half an hour - is LMH's locations that bad? Is it near all of its key resources like its playing fields etc?
The other thing I noticed was that LMH serves no food on a saturday. Probably a dumb question, but is this a problem?
Also interested to know what people say about the general feel of the two colleges, and what the integration of first years is like. I like the idea of forming bonds within your first year, but don't want it to be separated from rest of college too much. Are the JCR and accomodation for first years nice here? and do more people go to formal hall or the earlier sittings? people's opinions on the layout of the colleges with jcr/rooms/buildings/etc affecting the social aspect may help me out too!
the other thing was i'm just quite keen to know what both are like for sport - i like playing rugby, but also football, and probably would like to play for some jokes teams too - hopefully a tour in there somewhere? haha and yeah i enjoy music too but I'm not a classically trained singer or anything. a practice room snds good to me, but choir would be fun to get involved with too.
Any feedback is much appreciated
