    One Oxford applicant tried to stand out by writing in his Personal Statement "my hobbies are hugging, kissing and making love".

    Apparently they actually called him for interview (because the rest of his application was of the required standard) and has a few words with him. He was very embarrassed! They actually gave him an offer though, but he failed to meet the grades.

    This may well form the most interesting chain of murders ever... We will simply HAVE to come up with a name for such heinous action

    I hope no one goes through my internet search history and sees that I'm searching synonyms for 'killer' and 'murderer'.

    CHIARA THE CUT-THROAT! Not exactly accurate but the alliteration works.

    YES. We will use this! I'm hoping she would use other methods of slaughter rather than buses... I mean, the amount of buses and chance of her targets being near these buses as the small number pass by the target...

    I may state on my PS that I'm specifically interested in the rationality of economics and thus, its aid in planning murders

    if she were more of a girly girly girl then she could kill people with her girly accessories and then people could all fear the dreaded razor sharp Chiara's Tiara! :lol: so random

    and oooh yes! Disappointingly, i don't think saying that i'm good at killing people would look... favourable... on my medicine PS

    hah! I swear she is reasonably girly though? Barbie-esque nail painting etc? I love how we're just talking about her

    No, Chiara the Bus Runner Overer does not sound good. I like Chiara the Cut Throat Tiara, not only with its double alliteration but with the juxtaposition of the piracy and the Barbieness. Alumnicide, hmm, maybe. :lol:

    Chiara the Cut Throat Tiara it is. I love you three very much.
