    To be fair I've never really seen Bicnee go on a rant about the impotence of those who attend any other university than KCL or LSE. Isn't it wierd how different people on the forum have a dislike for certain places (see below)...

    Bicnee - Manchester
    Me - Durham, Warwick
    Gnostic - Everywhere but KCL
    Lol, I'm feeling compelled to stand up for gnostic here! He can be very nice! I don't have a dislike of any university I think (yet).

    Well I was robbed of 2 days of my life at York and so will never get them back (god that weekend was dull). Durham just annoyed me because they were not nice people when I went to visit after I got my offer (I was stupid enough to apply). Dislike of Warwick is brought about by (a) it being good for my subject but being in the middle of nowhere, thereby screwing me (need 4 year party ) and (b) the guy who showed me round the department was a **** and (c) we had to pay for sandwiches / munchies on the open day!!!

    Tell me about the sandwich prices in rootes...warwick robbed me of a hell of a loada money. But the people I talked to were cool.

    I can't really hate anywhere because I didn't visit half of my unis, just stuck them down.

    The instiutions I dislike are:
    -Oxford (they rejected me when I am clearly a genius!!! jk)
    -Durham (nice little place, though littles not my scene, but the people there seemed, well, too posh - and here comes the pro-Durhamite onslaught...)
    -UCL (made me wait an absurd amount of time for their reply, so when they gave me an offer, I rejected it straight away...HAH!)
    -LSE (it is NOT as good as Oxbridge)

    I don't believe I said it in reference to more than one person though, and that person certainly wasn't a Durhamite.

    Just to get into perspective, I dont dislike all the people at these institutions, these are just negaitve images I've got from past experiences regarding them.

    Somebody desperately needs to take up his mantle. Hmm, maybe a certain person will if they get an offer sometime next year. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, he was always nice to me, so I feel the need to actually stick up for him.
