No, I didn't. I'm still hoping that perhaps they'll only assess it after they sent out their offers (especially as the PAO is excruciatingly slow this year), but probably the Studentships have already been sent out

No i don't think so. I was reading through the booklet and they said if you do not accept the college offer you cannot take up your place on the course. I think it is different if you are a current Cambridge student however.

The general rule is that you cannot get a college transfer in cambridge. This rule applies whether you’re already in Cambridge or not. There are two exceptions to the rule: 

1 ) that you receive a scholarship from another college (this is not overly common since most college scholarships are tied to their current students - if you applied for a college specific scholarship which does not require initial college acceptance, you’ll know the outcome of this soon enough); or 

2 ) that you have a really good reason. These really good reasons are virtually limited to medical reasons or if for some reason some event occurred which completely severed the trust you should have had to your college (think e.g. some bullying or abuse by staff issue - these kind of issues are usually unlikely to progress to a level where a transfer is contemplated within the short time frame of the LLM). Medicinal reasons are usually limited disabilities that relate to mobility issues, in which case they would normally entertain requests to not place you in the colleges that are furthest away, i.e. p, Girton and Homerton. The rest of the colleges are usually not affected by those concerns though.

Every year, a lot of people seem to be dissatisfied with their college choices for some reason. I think they overestimate the relevance of the college in postgraduate studies. They’re usually quite uninvolved compared to undergrad study. There are also some who seem to be more interested in whatever “prestige” can be derived from the buildings and wealth that individual colleges have. For those I can just say: Grow up, and also realise that the “prestige” is mainly tied to undergrad studies anyway; not really the postgrads. For the most part, postgrads live in accommodation far away from college, often of quite dubious quality.

As a PS to point 1 above, they will unfortunately  not entertain requests to change colleges to make you eligible to run for a scholarship that you otherwise was not eligible to apply to by not being accepted there in the first place/not putting them as a first pref college. Applying to Cambridge can be a bit of a minefield if you’re depending on funding, since a lot of information is hidden around the college pages. This is usually why they tend to advice applicants to plan their application months in advance. It is also a somewhat undercommunicated point, but you’ve got 14 days to change your college preferences after the application deadline in early December, which no doubt was intended to allow applicants time after sending their application to research college funding and other things important to them (e.g. accommodation, etc.).
