Is anyone else (depending on grades) going to Merton College, Oxford this October? If so what are you studying and what offer did you get?

Stop making me feel envious!!

I wasn't good enough for Oxbridge and so didn't apply there, but I really wanted to, especially Merton for Law since it's really prestigious.

Anyway just wanted to say that, haha.

Carry on with the thread.

I'm hoping to apply for Economics and Management in 2004 at oxford, probably at Pembroke. What subject ya looking at, and what was your offer?

You could always try if it means that much to you.

Nah, I know I have more of a chance with philosophy, and I'd probably enjoy it more too. It's just Law's a more prestigious and useful degree to have...i'll probably end up doing a conversion.

Do what you enjoy more. I agree with you about the conversion, but it's probably not a good idea to talk about that at the interview etc. as they probably wouldn't appreciate it.

I've been made an offer to study Law at Merton with grades AAB (one of the A's in English).

When I applied I had no idea how prestigious MErton once and when I got there for interview I really felt out of my depth. It seems that the top schools "rank" their students and tell their most able students to apply to the prestigious colleges i.e. Merton, St Johns, Balliol. Then there was my reason for applying "nice gardens".

Still I managed to get an offer despite two interviews that i thought were disasters, if you really want to study at Merton then go for it and do not let anyone make you feel inferior/not good enough
