    I saw your post on the Advantages or disadvantages of RG uni's.... Then I googled your username cos I don't know what it means and then bingo...
    You're a clever girl aren't you Lyrical Prizzle. The word Eboracum was of course, the name for the city of York during Roman times. York's a lovely city, very romantic actually. The city is an ideal place for Eboracum to take lucky females on romantic walks along the ancient city walls. But as to study?...as the CIA said in their first tweet, "I can neither confirm nor deny"

    Ah yes. The gentleman made a good point, as it is hard to put ones finger on certain "evidence", and I was wary of university snobbery. But I just think it's a reasonable and logical starting point to argue that the "better" the university, the "harder" it is to get so or so grade. And if the gentleman acknowledged that it would be harder to get X grade at Oxford than say a university ranked 20th, I couldn't see why he wouldn't acknowledge why it would harder to get X grade at a university ranked 20th, than one ranked 80th. But it's a very banal topic. I could be mean, and say he's just bitter than his degree is from an ex-poly, but I'm a reasonable and decent human being, so I won't.

    I wonder LP, if Manchester United can win at the Emirates stadium. I believe...maybe.

    You're a little charmer aren't you? Do you speak the way you type irl?

    Oh I see, University debates on TSR...been there done that and I've learnt my lesson you can never get a word in with these people it's always Oxford and Cambridge this or Russel Universities that :rolleyes: It's actually come to the point where I just read what people have to say rather than get involved, dangerous territory.

    Yeah why not? Wondering if we should even turn up and abandon the match. I'm still that vex with the club.

    I see myself as the George Clooney of TSR; irresistible to any woman. I think most folk probably vary their writing style. So I guess I'm not unique in saying that my forum writing style, my essay writing style and my speak are all varied.

    Exactly. I mean I'll sound like a staunch socialist saying this (I'm really not I'm the opposite) but one of the problems of capitalism I learned in a seminar this week, is that it conditions us to only see our achievements or successes in comparison to other peoples, rather than in their own right. So we're naturally conditioned to come on TSR and to argue about it, in order to boost our own self-worth. But in reality, it's all nonsense. Banter aside, people can only ever know the true quality of a higher education establishment if they have studied at it. Anything else is just based on what they perceive the reputation to be like, or what their friend said, or what 1 out of many league tables said. Not credible criteria, as I'm sure you'll agree. But people are defensive, it can be hard not to be drawn into it.

    And of course, the banter is never ending. You get people taking the mick out of polys, then you get RG kids thinking anything non-RG is awful, then you get LSE kids who think it's them and Oxbridge (we saw the leaflets from the Rugby club that said KCL was awful), then theres the people that only think Ox and Cam are worth going to, and you wonder where it ends. When these kids get into the private sector and have to photocopy some files for a man that went to a state school and a "mid card uni" perhaps that will finally be the moment that their head gets removed from their own backsides.

    Of all the cars in the world, why the SLK? I assume you got a hefty budget. BTW agree on Everytime.

    I've always been strangely fascinated with it; it reminds me of an old batmobile the way the hood is.

    I want the 2005- 2010 model. I've seen some with under 30k miles too:eek:.

    I'm looking for a coupe really(seems to be the most practical age to buy one), and the SLK seemed to tick all the boxes nicely.

    Aim is basically a generic 20k job from NHS, preferably an office job then to climb up ladder to management.

    Other option is to get into recruitment, work hard enough could be on 40k at the age of 21. Also recruitment companies tend to allow you lot to go on holidays in america e.g. Vegas. In a few years you're on 65k if you work hard enough. Plus you climb up the ladder quickly. If you're all about the money then recruitment is the place to go into. Not too safe in job security so you have to be good in it.

    20k onto 60 into 10 years is so peak.

    if you can get into law/IB onto 30-40k you should be looking at 7 figure salaries in 10 years.

    That difference is just so ****ing huge.

    I kinda wanna start something up of my own, but dont even know where to start.

    illegal seems to be the easy way out right now.

    Yeah thats the thing. Hence why recruitment's is one of my plans, recruitment means that I'll be 20k no bonus and 40k with bonus first year. 2nd/3rd year 65k. So can get a management role eventually. Meeting new people of high profile, being able to climb up a social ladder quickly, trips out to america while on a good salary in my youth. High pressure job compared to this completely dull sedentary lifestyle I'm on atm, what's there not to like about it?

    In reality, the only talent I have that can make real money is music. I can play piano well enough, so can always start a band and see where we go from there. Want to make beats, in reality I'm not good enough atm. I'm 21 now, I'm just lacking in a little bit of creativity.

    Coaching is also another option.

    Yeah. I won't be applying to any of the other Big 4. If I'm honest I'm not really interested in finance/accounting, I'm a Political Science student, so I'm just using it as practise as generally the big four have the hardest application process. Yeah I fancy a crack at GSK, looks a good company to work for, I've got my eye on the Communications grad scheme. Where did you do your placement?

    It can be challenging to know what to do. Like a lot of these companies will ask you why you want to work for them, and its like...not as if ever since I was a baby I've wanted to work for X company, or in X profession, at the end of the day, it's a well paying job, with prestige and good opportunities for advancement, and thats why many apply to them. In truth I think my passion is government/policy, so thats what I'll spend most time working towards. I feel an MA would significantly benefit me, especially if I could get into UCL, but we'll have to see. I fancy a crack at LSE as well, but it's 20k for MA, double the price of UCL, so forget that.
    Ah so the big 4 isn't the Holy Grail it is for you that it is for me. That's the only place I want to work, but of course I'm a realist, doubt I'll get a job there. The application process is rough, I would be happy getting an assessment day at a big 4 firm, would stand me in good stead for other applications. I worked for Asda as an auditor in my placement year, salary wasn't too bad and I (hopefully) shouldn't find it too difficult to go back there as a graduate, built some good relationships there.

    Yeah for you a masters is maybe a good idea if job wise you don't feel ready. It's a little different for me as I just want to pass my professional exams and they are so expensive need a company to fund me and have a job guaranteed. Hopefully I should be qualified in around 4 years, salary boosts up then.

    I feel you on the "why us" question. It's dumb to me, just a hoop created by a power hungry executive wishing to boost his ego by having university students licking his ass. It's not like you dream from a child's age to work at say PWC, or Deloitte. Think I've got much better at asslicking now I've done so many applications. Is your masters self funded? That price is steep.
