    Ah you guys crushed my dreams in a single night. Wanted to do investment banking there.
    Loughborugh is a heavily-sporty uni however, increasing the chance that that proportion of girls will be solid 8/10s

    Wildly inaccurate, Newcaste doesn't attract that sort of clientele imo... maybe some with a wild side cos of all the "bangin'" nightclubs but there are better unis and better cities out there for that. Alas though if you don't get in you don't get in.
    Stereotypes don't all reflect actual reality.

    Stereotypeser are hypolised caricatures based on observed pre-conceptions which have an element of "truth" in them. So in a way yes they're an accurate reflection

    An 'element' of truth, as you say. How could you possibly say that slight truth is an accurate reflection? Slight accuracy at best. For example, some Americans think British people go around saying 'cheerio' but that's probably fewer people than they may think.

    You're above us for neuroscience, I'll admit, but not the highest.
    And we're also higher than UCL in physics, chemistry, biochem, mathematics, computing, engineering, etc.
    Lol.

    Neither of you are above anything.

    You don't own UCL and he doesn't own Imperial. You're UCL and Imperial customers respectively.

    If you eat at Mc Donalds everyday do you say "We're better than Burger King?"

    Durham- Full of private school kids whose parents want a uni to boast about at dinner parties even though their kid isn't a genius.

    All london unis apart from LSE/Imperial- Full of pointless, artsy, non-STEm degree types who most likely support Corbyn.

    That makes no sense.. we're not implying that we are the reason why they're better in different faculties, but generally you'll have a higher quality of education if the research department is better.
