    UCL and KCL are without doubt the worst universities I have ever seen or been too. Very overrated. Highly recommend against applying to them

    UCL is the most overrated, even though that's where I'm going...
    I wish I quit while I had the chance, the worst university ever I could think of. I recommend changing before it's too late

    Overrated: The Russell Group

    People on here make out that your life is over if your university isn't in the Russell Group. In the real world nobody really cares.

    Fastidious use of vocative commas is a little OTT where colloquial/conversational English on student forums is concerned, but thanks for the pro-tip. Seriously, where do you get off being so negative - where has it got you, other than banned? At least post on-topic and add something to the discussion (other than 'the lowest form of wit') :yy:

    I only said "righto" and then you mocked the eloquence of my post. How am I the bad person in this scenario?
