I have been accepted by Magdalen College at the University of Oxford. Oxford works as a collegiate system with 39 "colleges" sprawling its campus. Grads and under-grads study at these colleges and each student at Oxford will be associated with a college. These places also provide accommodation and meals.
It was pretty much a random choice to go for Magdalen. Not that you can do a lot of research to choose a college anyways. However, its supposed to be a prestigious college and gets filled up pretty fast. Considering that, I am lucky to have been selected. The rooms and meal charges seem consistent with the rest of the colleges.
The con would be the distance from the college to the Said Business School, where I would be attending classes.
Hope that doesnt become a major issue, especially during rains etc. Till then Magdalen rocks :)
