    (Original post by молодой гений)
    Yeah, I'm not disputing any of that. I'm just saying that pointing out that, say, a theology graduate from Oxford will be fawned over wherever they go is because of Oxford, not the theology knowledge (otherwise a theology graduate from Manchester Met would also be overwhelmed by 30k+ job opportunities).
    Ugh, I'm not being chased by law firms for my knowledge of eighteenth century Evangelicalism or the Industrial Revolution; it's an arts student's ability to thinking flexibly, persuasively and critically that makes them an appealing employee! Any top university will produce graduates like this. It is Oxford's ability to apply even more pressure and to select from the most able that means their graduates are highly sort after... it's this idea that if Oxford chose them then they must be good.
