it isnt all about the academic side. my friend turned them down, as all the times she went there, she couldnt imagine herself being there. theres also accommodation, night life, expense etc etc to take into account.
another person at my school turned down law at oxford to do chemical engineering at miami

I know at least two people who turned down Oxbridge and I went for about 7 weeks then dropped out. It really isn't all its cracked up to be imo.

For £1 billion I might turn Cambridge down for law. As you can probably tell, I definitely don't prefer anywhere else and really want to go there!
But I'm sure the people who do turn Oxbridge down have their reasons. Oxbridge aren't definitely the best choice for everybody for every degree course, despite some misconception. And a lot of people might simply not like the place, not get on with the people they have to spend a lot of time with and just generally dislike the atmosphere.

Yes, my brother turned down Cambridge for LSE (for economics).
