    So I've mostly included Russell Group Universities, but here's my impressions of these different universities. Agree/disagree? Your opinions?


    University of Birmingham - relatively intelligent people who you could go get a pint in the bar with; mostly decent down-to-earth types who'll probably end up being a manager later in life


    University of Bristol - posh kids who couldn't get into Oxbridge


    Durham University - even posher kids who couldn't get into Oxbridge


    University of Cambridge - half posh public schoolers, half geeks who can't maintain eye-contact for more than 10 second


    University of Oxford - see above


    Cardiff University - any sheeps for ****ing?


    University of Edinburgh - girls with names Tilly and guys with names like Oliver who come up to Scotland to work semi-hard


    University of Exeter - posh country tw**s


    University of Glasgow - where the smart Scottish kids go


    Imperial College London - day 16 and still no sight of a female; smart kids with loads of internationals


    University College London - cool liberal people who have a brain and internationals


    Kings College London - where you go if you didn't get into UCL


    University of Leeds - where slightly dim public schools go


    LSE - very smart serious people afraid to smile


    University of Liverpool - why is this even a Russell Group?


    University of Manchester - mix of regular decent types and posh kids who want to go to a big city to have a good time and still a good degree


    Newcastle University - full of posh, public school kids who have names like Jeffery Wonder-Wotsit who've immigrated from the South and people who couldn't get into Durham; full of posh girls with their legs open


    University of Nottingham - where middle-class kids go to meet other middle-class kids


    Queen Mary - I thought this was a Sixth Form College?


    Queen's University Belfast - most down to earth of all the Russell Groups


    University of Sheffield - nicey nice types who couldn't get into Newcastle or Leeds


    University of Southampton - middle-class kids whose idea of a good time is... well they don't really have a good time due to being a bit dull


    University of Warwick - smart kids who like concrete


    University of York - boring kids who want to be around other boring kids in a boring area and get a decent degree


    St Andrews - basically an extension of Durham


    University of Bath - full of nicey nice people again and hasn't been discovered by the public schools yet


    Loughborough University - not the brightest but damn they can play rugby

    I don't understand why you even bothered or thought these were at all right. Your university says nothing about you.

    I mean, it'd be pretty funny if the descriptions were witty. But they're mostly recycled and repeated 6 word phrases that a 5 year old could come up with

    I turned down Durham, York and Exeter to go to a university that shouldn't be in the RG, damn I'm crying here.

    Seriously though, I don't know why Liverpool gets so much criticism. It's excellent for many areas and it's part of the RG because it's research based, that's all the RG is. :lol:

    At least I got off lightly since I'm a 'nicey nice' person (Bath).

    And you seem to have a very naive case of assuming that just because I voice what could be described as harsh descriptions on these universities that I don't attend one. I actually attend one of the universities I had a harsher opinion on and one that's near the top of most league tables, mate. Just opinions.

    The point is for them to be short and sweet. Jeez, lighten up it's a light-hearted thread.
