    When I was there for interviews we formed a little group of northerners- 2 of us from Teesside one from Sunderland and one from Bolton (who got in) and a girl from northern ireland. I heard some other people *****ing about a girl from yorkshire which was mean! I'm glad to be in northern territory in Durham x

    well i was pooled at camb and didn't get in - im not particularly bitter and given the chance i would have gone there but... durham is fantastic for so many other reasons. That it's a good uni is a given and at the level that it is differences in actual quality of learning are marginal. Reputation is what counts and durham is never likely to have as good a rep as oxbridge but frankly...

    WHO GIVES A ****?

    only the idiots who would use such a term as doxbridge... where morals would slap them id settle for a withering look and a *****y comment amount them... possibly relating to their appearance/outfit.

    :eek: someone actually wore a t shirt saying that... I hope you were particularly rude to her...

    the stupid thing is if you're stupid enough to say "doxbridge" you make it perfectly clear that you are A) an oxbridge reject B) bitter and C) a durhamite

    I'm sure it's the name of a netball/hockey thing, hence the t shirt

    I get up at 7 as my mum makes breakfast and goes out then, if i didnt get up then I'd have to make my own breakfast and food helps me get another 3hrs sleep

    I'm looking forward to some structure, but not the structure which leaves the house at 8 and arrives back at 7pm

    I'm gonna disagree with you there, squire. It's YOU that counts. Reputation doesn't mean a whole lot once you graduate.
