Hi. I'm posting this on a new account as I don't really want this on the one I use...
I just got home to a letter saying I had been rejected by Oxford, and as you can imagine, it was quite disappointing. Academically I did well (GCSE mostly A*s, 4As at AS) and I thought that the interviews were good (obviously they weren't). I'm not one of those cocky people who just expected to get in, but equally I thought that my application was good enough that i could perhaps actually get in.
I didn't really want to go anywhere else. For the course I was applying to, I always preferred Oxford, and I worked so hard trying to get there. I spent hours reading and reading and doing so much work towards my subject, I pretty much devoted the last 6 months entirely to this and blocked everything else out. Getting rejected is awful and I feel like **** and like I've let everyone down.
To everyone else who has got rejected, how have you dealt with it? I'm lying on my bed and am so depressed. I have never felt so awful and don't know what to do. I could always reapply if my A2s are good, but being rejected sends out the message '"you're **** and we don't want you. Go away", so there might not even be any point.
I'm so lost
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
