    Hi all, I've got an offer to study Med in Magdalene. Trouble is I'm Singaporean so the course is painfully expensive. Anybody know of any scholarships or bursaries I can look at? Thanks in advance!

    Okay, I'm not even being funny but this is genuinely depressing me so much. I'm not even happy about my Cambridge offer. I'm really not. I'm so unhappy. Yeah, I've got Cambridge, but it's not Oxford. Ever since I was young I've considered Oxford superior to Cambridge, regardless of whether that holds out in reality. Oxford is my dream university. When I was taken on a trip to Cambridge in Year 7, I was like 'Bah! I wish it was Oxford instead.' Now it's so entrenched in me that Oxford is better, that Cambridge is really just a second-rate Oxford, that I can't be happy. I'm constantly trying to rationalise to myself and justify that Cambridge is just as good as Oxford, but it's impossible. Oxford is more famous, more beautiful, its graduates have better prospects, etc. Every single time I see Oxford mentioned in popular culture, I just die a little bit more inside.

    I'm not even joking, this whole thing is making me so sad. And things like the above just convince me further.

    What's wrong with me?

    The grass is always greener... And this is the first time I'm hearing that Oxford is more beautiful or has better prospects as a university, especially for the latter which would differ very much based on the course.

    This is quite the definition of "first world problems" :P

    Firstly: sources?
    Secondly: you don't have to accept the offer
    Thirdly: Get. A. Grip.

    As an Oxford reject who never even got the chance to get an offer from Cambridge, one which I would love to have rather than feeling like a failure sometimes... this post seriously upsets me. Cambridge is not less superior compared to Oxford. Graduates don't have worst prospects. Both are top universities in the world, among the Top 5 in every field. Some rankings puts Oxford higher than Cambridge, some do the opposite. I understand that you might feel like Cambridge is a "downgrade" but believe me it is definitely not!

    Just in case you haven't noticed, yet, vaaaaaaast majority of firms in London (or uk) are NOT US firms.......
    And I'm also suspicious about credibility of the source.
    And if you're really so unhappy with the offer from Cambridge, you have every right to decline the offer. It's your choice. Nobody's going to stop you.

    Found the source http://www.chambersstudent.co.uk/med...university.pdf

    It also says: "In short, what we're saying is: ignore this survey almost entirely, and choose the university where you think you will be happiest."

    Oh and, maybe an MC is more your thing than a US firm in London:
