    If I'm not mistaken, it will be updated before the end of January-- at least that's what they said in my letter?

    There's currently a poll ongoing about which is more famous: Oxford or Cambridge. Thought this may be of interest.

    PS: Go for Oxford.

    When I lived in the States, I didn't pay much attention to unis as I was too young. However, even I knew Oxford was among the very best. Oh, and there was something about a place called Cambridge ...

    My Oklahoma relatives had no idea what Oxford was. They know of Harvard, Yale, Stanford etc but everything else is foreign, even Oxbridge. I told them I had an interview and they were like "Cool! That's good! Is that a university?" xD can't beat Oklahoma for blissful country-living ignorance

    Oxford is a perfect example of being famous while having no talent. Right up there with the Kardashians.

    As a Texan (@fablereader was born in Texas), the only good thing to come out of Okie territory was Oklahoma!

    All the songs are worth singing. Repeatedly. It's the nostalgia thing.
