    Went to MMU and then tried to act as if she was intellectually superior.
    Really? For merely questioning the OP's proposition and patiently, albeit yet to, receive a response to my points?

    I don't think so.

    who said she isn't? which uni you go to isn't everything you know.

    and from the posts the OP has been making, it isn't hard to act intellectually superior tbh.

    what i like, is that you think you are superior to all of us. why is that?
    1) Which uni you go to is usually a pretty good assessment of your intelligence.
    2) From the unis he's applying to, it IS hard to act intellectually superior.
    3) I don't think I'm necessarily superior as a person. Just intellectually superior to that MMU girl.

    And for "different", substitute "of different abilities".

    Stop wishing it was so narrow.

    If MMU could supply you with such glowing "skills", why on earth are people still applying to Oxbridge?!

    From Man Met girls degree article:

    The degree result is much more important than A-levels,

    So result surely must encompass institution? O dear.

    The firms culture? What some are good and some are bad? Some make money and can afford to recruit Oxbridge Grads? Others can't.
    As in how a person as a whole fits into the ethos and culture of the firm. You are looking at this from a one-dimensional view, which is obviously restricting your sensible reading of quotes.

    No it isn't. She made a point about companies frequently breaching competition laws and that the OP had simply said 'ur rong read economics' instead of actually explaining what was wrong with a statement, back when the OP was going on about economics to try save his rapidly sinking argument.

    Results matter more. I don't want to sound arrogant, but you're trying my patience with your ignorance. Trust me, I know more about this one than you do.

    For god's sake, univeristy isn't everything. I've not sat on my arse expecting the uni to give me a glowing app, and neither should an Oxbridge student.

    1) not always. and i think it's horrible when people pick on others because of the uni they are applying for/go to.
    2) :|
    3) I'm at Essex uni. are you superior to me as well then?

    and OP, you won't notice any points because neither of you have payed the slightest bit of attention to what she has actually been contributing to your thread. you were too busy tearing her apart coz you think you are better than her.

    You do exhibit some (rather misplaced) arrogance, yes.

    Less so than you. Your university sprout is based on hearsay and other elitist students; I, however, have a more informed decision from my prospective employers.

    I wouldn't have "picked on her" if she hadn't been making such an idiot of herself.

    One person. Over how many people I have talked to?

    And if you actually read my posts, I never once said I wanted to be a barrister.
    I will readily admit that that is still an old-boy's system that is less susceptible to opening up, unlike firms, which have more business incentives for being diverse.
