It depends on what you mean. If you're talking about results your college will have no impact on them. There is no post graduate level teaching based in college. Other than that generally Jesus takes in a big group as does Hughes Hall and I think Darwin. Other colleges such as Johns, Kings and Peterhouse take in almost noone so it very much depends on what you want. Honestly I would probably go for a college with other LLM students even if for some reason you don't get on really well with all of them it's nice to have a few people who are working to the same timetable as you.

Thanks for your answer, but I'm not sure that I have fully understood. [There is no post graduate level teaching based in college.] ???
I'm going to apply to do an LLM at Cambridge, and I have to choose two colleges. At Oxford, for ex., the most reputable are Magdalen and Balliol, for law. I'm trying to find out which ones are the most reputable, for law, at Cambridge...
Thanks

THERE IS NO GRADUATE LEVEL TEACHING BASED IN COLLEGE. It is all based in the faculty. The most reputable college at under grad level in Cambridge until recently was Downing but I don't think they take a lot of LLM students and to be honest picking a college for the fact that it has a lot of great law undergrads is pointless. Pick a college that has things in the college that you are interested in such as location, age, grad v's mixed, all female whatever it doesn't really matter, throw a dart at a map of Cambridge. You will not be taught in your college, your college is a social network rather than an academic one. Also READ the available literature. I have absolutely no problem answering any questions people have that I can and as you can see I frequently post answers but it annoys me when someone doesn't believe something I've posted and can't be bothered doing a bare minimum of research themselves to verify their (or my) opinion.

LLM results are factored in when this chart is being drawn up as LLM students graduate with undergraduates. However there is absolutely no way of telling where the top LLM students were by following this chart. Seriously, trying to decide what college to apply to, to get good grades by looking at this chart is pointless. The top LLM student in 2005/06 was in Trinity Hall which is ranked 16th. I would advise considering Jesus, Trinity Hall and Queens if you are looking for a traditional Cambridge experience. They're not the biggest, oldest or richest but they are traditional colleges and take a number of LLM students every year so you have a reasonable chance of getting in. There is also a Forum for Cambridge students and applicants on the Cambridge graduate union forum which is probably worth having a look at.

Darwin is a grad only college which wouldn't be my first choice. That said it usually has a good group of LLM students, the college itself is really near the faculty and town although I'm not sure where their accomodation is and their bar is supposed to be fantastic. I've certainly not heard of many complaints about the college and it would seem to be a pretty good place to be.

Your application is passed to a college. It seems to be a pretty random process although towards the end it depends on who has space and it is unlikely that they will send your application to a college that has lots of applications there already.

Look at previous suggestions, maybe Jesus? Quite sporty other LLM students. If they say no then it goes to your second choice and after your second choice it is treated as if you had no preference

I didn't and it worked out fine. If you have seen a college you like it's worth putting it down I guess but I think people get too stressed about the whole college thing Cambridge will be awesome anyway!
