    I applied to Oxford the first time round. Not
    Whisper to Will: Give me McDonalds over KFC any day!
    Tsh! Grow some tastebuds* :p:









    * Please note this comment does not reflect any belief that an Oxbridge education makes my opinion on fast food superior to anyone else. It's just a known fact. KFC > MacDonalds. Unless you're talking fat 'n' crap.

    Thats absolute rubbish. First of al, if you had read the thread about the thalidomide case, you would see what I was on about. I was simply making a comparison between this girl's attitude and her narrow- mindedness on the subject. And plus, I'm on a gap year myself- why the hell would I want to diss other people doing the same? I think you're talking rubbish, you've conjured that out of thin air. Plus, I have friends who go to Cambridge- why would I have something against everyone who goes to Cambridge? Don't be so stupid and check your facts before you start mouthing off :mad:
    i wasn't talking about you.

    ah it's you. no, as soon as i said something controversial, you attacked me for being a tab

    note: and it wasn't really controversial
    Er, could you elaborate please? I don't quite understand what you mean by 'tab'. And like I said before, I have nothing agianst you because you go to Cambridge, I just didn't agree with what you were saying at all.

    If I'm being honest, the only thing I'm jealous of about Oxbridge students is that they get great hall accomodation compared to most other universities where you're cramped into little boxes piles on top of each other.

    No - the college I went to has a list of students who they tell they should apply to Oxbridge.. and then they pressure you like hell to apply there. They use the number of students who go to Oxbridge in their adverts for the college. I told them that I wasn't interested in going to Cambridge and that I want to go to Portsmouth - they weren't too impressed with me..

    Anyways - they told me to withdraw my application. Apparently if I'd have got a place and rejected them, Oxbridge don't favour the college very much in the following year, and applicants to Oxbridge are mysteriously less sucessful..
    I wish they wouldn't spread such myths. People reading this, I can only implore you to ignore teachers who think they know best when they have no insight.
