    a snob is a dialect word for cobbler or shoemaker....

    Oxford has a shoe named after it, so perhaps it has more snobs than the others :dontknow:

    I sort of meant which of these has students with a reputation for being the most rah/snobby/arrogant.

    I couldn't add a poll so please just vote by naming which one you think fits this bill.

    what's snobbiest supposed to mean
    Snob: a person with an exaggerated respect for high social position or wealth who seeks to associate with social superiors and looks down on those regarded as socially inferior.


    Snobbiest (my definition) : Essentially the institution with most of the above type of people as students.

    then the question should be which university has the most snobbiest students. Stop trying to slate a university for being snobby and ruining its name when it's the people
