Well, no, not really.

I'm applying to Oxford because I feel the tutorial system will get the best out of me in terms of historical knowledge and research capabilities. One-to-one guidance is invaluable in improving your intellectual curiosity as opposed to a lecture room with another 30-odd people.

Going for the open day and seeing the great architecture helped my cause mind.

That's what I meant - would you go to oxbridge just for the sake of getting a top-rated degree, even if it evens living in an environment you can't handle, or a subject which you are not interested in?
No. That would be absurd, and not remotely conducive to a decent performance in my case (nor in the majority of other cases, I would imagine).

I, at the minute, couldn't give a **** about how good the degree is viewed at the end. I love studying at Cambridge for a million other reasons.

Would you/did you/have you only go to Oxbridge, solely on the degree you get at the end?
That is the most incoherent question that I have seen in days.
Your chances of going to Oxford or Cambridge must be vanishingly small.

If that was the case, you would likely not get a top-rated degree. Few people do well at subjects they don't like in an environment they don't get on with.

The prestige of the degree was a factor for me, but a relatively small one.

Erm, it's not hard.

'Would you/did you/have you only go to Oxbridge, solely on the degree you get at the end?' = INCOHERENT.

'Would you/did you only go to Oxbridge for the prestige factor?' = COHERENT.

It is a shame that your grammar, spelling and content are not consistent with your claims. :rolleyes:

Did your mum say you were a special snowflake as well?

Cambridge doesn't accept special snowflakes - they tend to melt.

You must be trolling.
Nobody can write THAT incoherently.

Come on, confess that you are just pretending to be illiterate.

For those not in the know: :p:

Special Snowflake Syndrome: when a child is repeatedly told the s/he is a very unique individual, unlike anyone else, and way more special; this syndrome manifests itself in beliefs the s/he can prevail in tasks s/he obviously cannot.

Any tautologies purposefully included.

Oh, and, gross...Cambridge!

But er...you told me that I have said syndrome due to some self-esteem issues.

Seems like you're a bit confused, dear.

I've never told you that you have self-esteem issues; I once said that someone else in the same thread as you in the H&R forum has them, though.


And here I was in reference to the grammatically challenged, Oxbridge wannabe.

Considering the level of thought shown in your posts, I think it's a valid comment. Getting in is about seeming, in an interview, to be very, very bright. To be logical and think things through well. Most of your threads show an inability to do this, which will impact on your admissions chances.
