    i can't see a correlation between the university someone goes/went to and their behaviour as a person.

    Actually, in four years at Oxford I've met some of the nicest, most intelligent yet most self-depricating people in my life.

    Of course Oxford produces jerks - where doesn't? However, the additional ones produced via a sense of superiority from the brand name are cancelled out by the people (who, by the way, often don't tell you they've been to Oxford) who are too intelligent to think that the name of their university is something other people will want to know about.

    No, if anything it has the opposite effect. Those arrogant people who think they're going to rule the world with their three A*s at A-Level come to Oxford where they quickly end up at the bottom of the class :lol:
