    Hooray! At least two Cantabrigians have been converted into Oxonians... must recruit more!
    Are you sure? More Oxonians = more competition...

    Wait, you're not applying to Oxford? D: why not? I've seen you around the UCAS thread loads of times.
    I'd love to apply for Oxford but back in school I managed to fail nearly every exam going!

    Whilst I like to tell people failing with flying colours took some degree of talent. I somehow don't think Oxford would see it that way.

    As long as they're staying away from psychology, I don't mind! Actually I just don't mind, as long as they're nice people.

    Oh dear. Does that mean you're not in school anymore, since you said "back in school"? What unis are you applying for instead?

    Well, medicine is close enough.

    Yes, I'm a barrel of laughs (or whatever the expression is). :rofl:

    Left school a couple of years ago went to college, went down the vocational route, now I'm starting a new course.

    I still haven't made up my mind on my top 5 but at the moment my favorites are: Essex, Rohampton and Royal Holloway.

    Oh I see. :yes: I'm not that familiar with the education system in England, but I think I know what you mean.

    Cool! I don't know Rohampton, but I'm probably applying to the other two of your choices! RHUL is very pretty.

    Most definitely, and well, you're definitely a barrel of something! Maybe a barrel of crazy work induced nonsensical teenage ramblings?

    Haha yeah. Seriously after a very intellectually stimulating (only word that fits in my head) with a guy I met at a volunteer experience, I decided...

    WHEN I GROW UP...

    I want to be a nerd.

    Seriously though, it's so much more exciting and interesting than being a hipster (the other side of me). So yeah. That will be me in uni.

    Anyway, yes! It is! Ahhh! Someone on TSR compared it to Hogwarts, and it is very majestic. I will say that their libraries are reeeaaaaallly cool/pretty. Maybe not as historic as Oxford's, but still very wonderful. Did you know a scene in Inception was filmed in the Founder's Library there? Well now you know.

    See I'm full of these wonderful tidbits. I don't even know where I learned that. xD

    Roehampton is my local uni. It's not the best university in the world but it is nowhere near the worst and I havn't seen anyone **** it off not even on TSR which must count for something.

    I must admit I've fallen a little bit in love with RHUL it looks very nice and I like their English modules.

    Some girl who applied for psychology last year gave me a superb, long answer on how the interviews were like for psychology last year. If anyone's interested in reading, click my profile, it's in the visitor messages. I'm so indebted to her, I'm really very happy <3

    Ahh i've not looked into it that much, and i haven't seen Inception! D:

    Haha, well it's so fun! It was truly odd though, after talking about our nerdy achievements we went into a brief argument over quarks (I hope he isn't reading this thread! :ninja:), and then I showed him an app I had of a 3D brain, we were talking about Freud and Jung and stuff... then it came to light that we had both memorized "to be or not to be" from Hamlet (the whole soliloquy), so we started reciting it... then we went to the library. :lol: Anyway, it was really fun and I realized that it was much more fun talking about academic things than dressing fashionably. ;P

    Yes... Indeed. Today I told my mother something about the naming of streets or something... anyway it was odd. xD


    And yes, I am a hipster of sorts. More like the conscious hipster. My friend and I used to have mock 'hipster fridays/other days of the week'. I think we had 4 or 5 over the last school year. Anyway it eventually turned into we both kind of embraced our hipster sides, la-dee-da. XD I dunno, I prefer non-mainstream music and films, and I like hipster fashion so... :dontknow:

    only on special occasions

    I have to admit it was the abuse of us in huge which led me to the "thats what she said" moment.
