:p: I'll let you off the culturally absolutist hook, because you made me laugh!
It is obvious to any erudite young man or woman that Russians, by proxy, have created any work of merit; thus, cultural absolutism is unavoidable.

Well Daveo and I (who used to be moderators too) met on TSR, then we met in real life and have been together ever since: for over 3 years now, have lived together for over 2 years and have been engaged for just over 1 year.

We like to think it's going OK!

Ah, mais certainement. (Replying in Russian is, yes, too much to ask. Though I am sure that the language is, by association, exemplary also. :p:)

French is acceptable: XIX century Russia saw its aristocracy speak the language.

Did it really? You're going to be quite the traveller, having studied in Russia, America and here. What attracted you to England, may I ask? I mean, obviously Oxford, but surely you could have stayed in the US and gone to Harvard, Yale, etc.

I must study in Europe as I want to study European Community law. In France, I cannot study due to the fact that my French would not allow me the level (and quality) of study I would so desire. In Spain, I can the same for my Spanish. My English, thankfully, is quite fluent, thus studying in the UK is a definite possibility. Furthermore, UK unis are well known throughout Europe (and Russia), allowing me the possibilities of gaining a career in several countries.

Harvard, Yale, etc. simply cannot do to further my career.

Ah, well, of course; if you definitely want to study EU law, as opposed to the law of any jurisdiction generally, then that seems like perhaps the best way to go. I applied for law first too, in fact. I was hoping to go to Oxford, but I didn't even get an interview as my grades, admittedly, weren't up to it. I did additional A-Levels in my gap year (i.e. that I've just finished) to expiate with the expectation of applying again, but in truth I haven't got the stamina: which is why I ended up being crazy and finally chose Classics elsewhere instead! I may do law afterwards though, I'm not altogether sure.

So what, if I may ask, are your ultimate career plans? You seem to be quite clear as to them.

After finishing at a UK university, I wish to complete a BVC, and work within the UK for 3 or so years. Afterwards, I hope to look for a career with an international law firm (if I get into Oxford, it's more likely due to some factors) somewhere in Europe (hopefully Moscow or Paris!). Within the law firm, I interested in conflict of law within East/West European relations.

So, that's my (humble!) plan. May I ask why Classics and, if law afterwards, what sort of law?

That sounds like an interesting and worthwhile set of ambitions, and your area of law sounds like a very attractive one to go into.

Classics was something I decided to take on purely for my own interest. I would like to learn Latin for it's own sake and also to have a better understanding of my current languages of English and French. Also, I am of course very interested in ancient culture, society and politics. If I do, though, ultimately enter Law, I plan to become a human rights barrister. That is quite a high aim, I am aware, and so I would need to be accepted at a top university to study Law (though staying at Manchester would suffice), hopefully Oxford -- I've still not given up on that old goal!

Are you a socialist, to any degree? I only ask because of your quote from Mr. Zapata. Not that I'm planning to judge -- I interchange between most political ideologies, but very rarely those on the right wing.
