Hi all,

I am quite overwhelmed with choosing the colleges for my Cambridge application. The following are my selection criteria: (1) central location (i.e. in or near the city centre) but not too touristy, (2) good library facilities, (3) academically strong, (4) gym facilities and (5) not too stuffy/ pretentious.

Here are the colleges which I have shortlisted: (1) Christ’s College, (2) Emmanuel College, (3) Magdalene College, (4) Pembroke College, and (5) Queens' College.

Can anyone tell me more about them/ advise on which college(s) I should pick?
