    I know someone who studied at Hertfordshire and she said it was full of upper class snobs. She said most of the Law students were anyway.

    In general no, but a guy i knew who was doing law made a point of telling everyone that at home he had two washing machines and several servants....and he came from london....

    honestly in the erm 4/5 months that I have been at university now I haven't met 1 single snobby person. Not saying that they're not there but I haven't met any :P

    either way, saying that herts is full of upper class snobs is an absolute lie :P maybe she doesn't want you to go to herts? :P

    LOL i am part of the "I grew up in hatfield and aint addicted to heroin or have aids...yet".

    Its not so much of a horrid place,its more just a genuine sh*thole.I mean Hertfordshire has some nice places,just the new towns within it are pretty awful.
    I go to school in St.Albans and pretty much seen as a bit of a pikey as I am from shatfield,but it's not as bad as its reputation,though it is quite bad.

    Is Hatfield really that bad? I'm living here for 2.5 year and didn't notice that. Boring, yes, but I didn't know it has such bad reputation as you said, Krakatoa.

    Its reputation is quite strange,it is seen throughout Hertfordshire as a general sh*thole,and there are some relatively bad places,like up the Hilltop and whatnot. But its reputation from about 20-30 years ago has kind of stuck,when it was quite a bad place.I mean its not as bad as people say,obviously I am biased as I have lived here for a fair amount of time,but it is not as bad as its made out,as hooded chav's running around with knife's and Britains underclass living there.
    Yes it is your average working-class town which is awfully bleak and boring,but the level to which it is percieved to be by students and surrounding towns surpasses really what it is.

    There are a fair few chav's in Hertfordshire, but you can meet some really nice people too.

    I'm in my second year and its been great so far, met so many great people. The people are in NO way snobby. Hardly anybody I know is even well-off, let alone snobbish!
