    A first should be a terrific mark. But does going to the Uni of Nottingham make it slightly 'less'?

    I was rejected post-interviews from Oxford, but received an unconditional offer from Uni of Nottingham. I am wondering if it's still worth the time and money doing my degree in Nottingham and getting my first? As opposed to reapplying to a 'better' university?

    I fully intend on working very hard and securing my first, but I don't want to be disadvantaged by the fact that I got it at Nottingham.

    Any advise please.

    Thanks.

    Wait, what makes you think this? Stop reading into this crap about Law being only for Oxbridge students, Most if not ALL students from RUSSELL GROUP get training contracts and pupillages. Nottingham is Russel group.

    Nottingham, like Oxford/Cambridge, is a Russell Group university. You're perfectly fine with a degree from Nottingham.
