    I dropped out of Oxford because I didn't want to be surrounded by people like you for 3 years

    Tbh u wudnt have been, I was one of the best there
    I don't mean who did the best in some pointless exams that have no correlation to your ability as a MD.

    I mean this 'I'm God's gift' attitude- was surrounded by it in college and alongside the general feel and the subject problems, this was a key factor in my decision to leave.

    Not really. I've successfully managed to avoid this kind of entitlement for the most part.

    The most intelligent people I know did not go to Oxbridge.

    For someone who is usually arrogant, you'd think you'd have more self respect.

    We're = we are

    Basically we are...


    It's correct

    And I have a first from Oxbridge
    Dude, you wrote "were".

    And there's nothing wrong with living off your parents' money. People often just prefer the idea of working for it yourself and actually having some ambition. I personally wouldn't be able to just stay at home and be provided for forever. It would be unsatisfying and honestly just unbearable, especially considering I want to do research and achieve things.

    Basically were quite rich. We own houses (here and in India), gold, moneyz. I'd say total value £2m+

    And I don't like working. I like just living in my flat and going on TSR.

    What is wrong if I want to cash in on my parents hard work. I'd just live off the interest.
    Not that RICH imo
    But nothing is wrong.. but would they end up giving u all of that bcus u dnt even live with them and jus go on TSR lol

    Ah ok that was just a typo then lol
    Hmmm yes I agree. But I've done the whole education and work thing and now I'm bored. I'd rather just be a student doing something like an mba forms while -somewhere nice.

    That's fair enough. Though lets be honest, there will always be someone bothered by your lifestyle and life choices no matter what they are. You could remake this thread about literally anything. So there is no point thinking about anyone else's opinion, just make sure your life suits you.
