    Any form of course on the following:

    Art History
    Film studies
    Automotive engineering &
    Egyptology.

    (Obviously I'm more into the subject matter than the institution, hopefully even the worst educational establishment will stimulate my brain an ickle bit).

    You seem intelligent enough. Go for graduate school.

    Although, I'd prefer Oxford over Cambridge myself.

    Oxford doesn't have the Cambridge Footlights, for reasons that are probably self-evident; so, no.

    I am, and forever shall remain, an exhibitionist at heart.

    I'd do English at New, Oxford but learn loads of languages on the side. Then probably Cambridge (Trinity, Gonville), a year at ENS and a PhD at Yale, Stanford, Cornell.

    Cornell does NOT suck. Might not be as kickass as the rest of the Ivy League, but it doesn't by any means, suck.

    It's over-rated. The Ivy League was started as a sports alliance, nothing to do with academics.

    In all honesty, what departments of Cornell are highly ranked or prestigious? I can think of non-Ivies like U Chicago with better departments and academics.

    I think it's unfair how the term Ivy League directly portrays some kind of academic superiority (especially abroad where people don't know as much about American institutions) because there are many universities in America like U Chicago or Northwestern that provide equal if not superior education.

    Yes, it's overrated but it still doesn't suck. Then again, I'd go to Swarthmore, Amherst or Williams over any ivy league any day..

    Yep. Swarthmore is excellent, yet the name doesn't depict prestige...a load of *******s.To be honest I hadn't heard of it until last year.

    Why did you stay in the UK? It probably would have been about the same amount of money for you given the exchange rate and how expensive education is in America.

    Nothing to do with the money. I like it here. Am moving to the US as soon as I'm done with my course though.

    Antithesis to me then. I'm moving to Europe as soon as I finish graduate school (which is in 6 years or so).
