    What's that supposed to mean?


    Aren't you a stranger on the internet as well?


    Why should she take your advice about not taking advice from people on the internet?

    Well just get the perfect grades and you can go where you want.

    King's is a more prestigious University than Loughborough but less than St Andrews, but it ranks lower in Maths.

    I am not a stranger.
    Many users here (former students) know me in real life
    My name and email is in my website
    and
    I have supplied my full name and contact details in my formal communication with the TSR management yesterday.

    All the best

    Are you trying to pick fights with everyone today?

    It means that another persons university preference isn't something worth considering when deciding what to do with your life. Asking "what's uni x like for subject y?" Is going to get answers that are useless to everyone concerned.

    I'm in my first year and just by scrutinising your terrible grammar and pointless incredibly flawed points, I could already tell that you weren't a 2:1-1st class student, no need to point that out.


    It's a well known fact that a student with a 1st class at a University like King's which I'm on course to achieve, without participating in any pointless, time and money consuming societies would still land me any job i want in London. Or better yet I could even do a masters degree at Harvard or Caltech and start my own company, while you're discussing how fun your days in societies with other intellectually exiguous scumbags.


    Your irascible nature doesn't deter me, you're not on my level dear.
    I got into imperial business school with less than a 2.1? **** I'm a genius.

    Imperial promotes societies but kngs is too prestige? LOL

    Kings is the crap London uni, im not on your level I'm above you.

    How does it feel going to top Universities to further your education based on your participation in societies rather than what's in your head?

    Oh don't firm King's.


    Apparently it's a crappy Uni.


    She's just being arrogant because she goes to Imperial. And it wasn't even based on merit.

    What a shame.
