    All these people who go on about how rich they are going to be after going to LSE etc need to grow up. It is actually quite laughable how obsessed you are with money. Frankly I would rather be happy than working in some fat cat industry working out new ways to rip people off.
    Ever read American Psycho?

    Personally, my heroine is Francois Sagan - obtained a place at the Sorbonne, dropped out and wrote the modern French classic Bonjour Tristesse at 19.

    Ironically, as I write this I am listening to Queen's I Want It All:

    I want it all
    I want it all
    I want it all
    And I want it now
    Ain't much I'm asking
    I heard him say
    Gotta find me a future
    Move out of my way

    Ironically, the following track is I Want to Break Free

    University isn't the only key to success.

    /Most of them - Assistant Manager at Maccy D's is classed as a 'Graduate Entry job'. Sad huh!

    You're a graduate from a 4 yr St Andrews degree and you're still describing yourself as a "boy"?
    LMAO!!!!!

    But he is still a boy don't you think? Certainly acts like one.

    I've given up all ideas about engineering a successful revolution. Benabot sounds brilliant.

    It is funny how some of the most sucessful graduates on here don't have all singing and dancing A levels, didn't go to the very best universities but have a very down to earth attitude.

    You should go to the best university you can afford but don't look down on those who don't as places like TVU will be best university for some people.

    I agree...but some people go to extremes to make themself look pathetic, very amusing.

    Oh and Raj2 please stop sending messages trying to be patronising about my university of my choice...it isn't big...it isn't clever but it is certainly immature!If you can't cope with me going to a different university and it's bothering you so much, just top yourself, because if you can't cope with a simple thing like that in the world...then God help you when you get in the REAL world! When you go to university there are people from all different walks of life, and then you will learn. Those who go to a top university are no better than me nor more superior than me.

    Nice.

    What you choose to do with your life has no impact on mine whatsoever, I do however feel you are being unrealistic when you expect employers to view a City or Greenwich degree, of whatever standard, as favourably as they would to other universities, it simply *isnt* going to happen. As you appear to have a problem accepting this i think it is best if we leave this.

    For the record i have no great problem with people going to univerisities that are 'below' them but i just don't understand it. From my experience the individuals i've known who should be at uni's 50 places higher have not enjoyed their first years at all purely because the other people on the course do not have the same work ethic. The examples i have in mind are friends at City, Lincoln, Plymouth and Goldsmiths.

    Depends what you want to do...I want to teach A Levels, so I know I will get a job, thank you.

    Now leave me ALONE!!! Get a life and leave others to do what they want with theirs.
