guess whos just been rejected.
option 1- suicide
option 2- a life of suffering
i choose 1.
Metaphysical, while I do not know what you are going through, I strongly contemplated the possibility of missing my offer. While the prospects look gloomy now, there is still the possibility of doing a great gap year and re-applying. I know for sure that Oxford would never give out a 42 point offer (which I myself would have missed), so if you were to apply I would strongly encourage you to choose Oxford. You would almost assuredly get an interview with that outstanding score of 39 points, trust me it is. And you would get in as you have already proven your intelligence (otherwise why would you have gotten an offer and not someone else?).
If you decide not to reapply (which I think everyone completely would understand, as it is a lot of hassle) then you can still go to other great schools in Europe. University of Copenhagen is deemed as one of the strongest places in humanistic academia (including jurisprudence, they have an awesome faculty), there are amazing schools in France, Switzerland, Austria etc.
Consider your options, and seriously, while I hope your comment was not meant seriously, do not contemplate suicide. You have your whole life in front of you, do not end it early.
