I don't think you follow: I was not questioning its truth, merely posing the contrast between your derision of someone else for studying what you take to be useless, and you being an aspiring banker, i.e. a contemptible profession attracting swathes of the most lamentable of people.
Cool story bro, I was simply questioning his motives.

No, you said it was 'a waste of a degree' - an evaluative judgement.

My opinion. I don't care much for the grammatical justifications for what I did and didn't say. I'm not a neek like you.

Well, I was only responding you what you falsely stated. In any case, if you don't care about justifying what you say, then why should anyone (including yourself) listen to you? I can only presume that a 'neek' is something like a nerd. In which case, that's an incredibly churlish thing to say. How old are you?

Mate, I don't know why you're being such a snob when you go to City.

The OP was asking which university he should choose, there's no need for you to criticise his degree choice.

Not being a snob, I think his degree is useless relative to other degrees he could be studying. I question his motives, he failed to comply.

I semi-speak Arabic, I don't care that he studies it, would've been interested in a justification.

All this guy wanted was some help on his university choice, but all he got was a bunch of intolerant people rearing to correct people on grammatical errors and 'false' opinions

I think you should do some research into both courses (you probably already have & I imagine them to be very similar because its a language) and visit both universities to see if it is a good place for you.
The previous guy said read student reviews as well, I agree.

Learning a language is so much more than just speaking it -or in your case 'semi-speak' it- you gain access to a wealth of literature and experience different cultures through studying a language at university level....when you grow up you'll learn that humanities as a degree open many more doors than one needs in a lifetime job-wise...

What's it like?? Is it true that it's really freezing and extremely quiet?

Edit: should say I live 300 miles away from there and hope to visit but it's looking unlikely

It's freezing at the moment. Now, I'm from Canada, and it's like -20 there in the winter, and that doesn't bother me. But the Scottish cold is a bit weird; I think it's because we're on the sea, the cold just cuts right through however many layers as you're wearing.

I definitely wouldn't say it's quiet; it can get very loud with the parties and drunk people at 2am. But there's definitely not a lot going on unless you like getting drunk every night.

It's definitely worth a visit if you can. St Andrews is town that you either love or hate.
