How are you going to get a well paid job with that kind of thinking?

Wait. Stop for a second.

What was the reason you rejected Warwick and accepted Kings instead?

International rep, a higher ranking for my subject and everyone around me telling me to do so.

You'll get a good job with Kings as well depending on you gwtti g a 2.1.

But if u really want to go to Warwick phone them up and ask if they will still accept you.

Might as well give it a go.

I couldn't. My family all think that going to King's is basically a guarantee of a job and they view it as highly prestigious.

Will my prospects be lower at King's than at Warwick?

Do tables actually matter?

Very much aware of that. My worry is that its perception could go down because its student satisfaction is so low, which drags it down to such a ridiculous level in the tables. People don't look at different metrics on league tables, they just look at the overall ranking.

I had an offer from Warwick, a uni that ranks in the top 10 consistently on all league tables, but I turned it down in favor of KCL, which ranks #25 according to Complete, #35 according to the Times and #63 according to the Guardian.

I keep telling myself that it wasn't that bad of a decision, but I just can't ignore those league tables. I can't get it out of my mind. I could have gone to a top 10 and instead I'm going to... #63... It's ranked lower than De Montfort and Oxford Brookes according to the Guardian.
I realise this is due to student satisfaction skewing it and all, but I keep seeing posts on here where people claim that the most elitist employers do care about league tables. I sincerely doubt these employers look at the methodology behind the tables enough to understand what might be bringing a university down. I've seen job adverts that specifically say "top 30 university required". I couldn't even apply for those jobs apparently...
5-10 places doesn't make a difference, sure, but 60 sure as hell does. I want to get into a well-paid career and I don't think I'll ever be able to make it if I go to King's.

I haven't slept in a while, I'm having intense chest pains as a result of panic attacks, I'm absolutely terrified, I've lost all hope and what little self-esteem I had. I feel like I've tossed all my hard work (A*A*A) away. I have the grades for Oxbridge and instead I'm going to #63.
I ****ing hate snowflakes. "terrified" lmao

Yeah I just looked it up and saw this as well. OP you need to grow up. Just seen another one where warwick is 49th and KCL is 12th. Open your eyes. Kids these days think they deserve it all and take how lucky they are for granted.

I think if you want a magic circle contract afterwards, then Warwick is more of a target uni then Kings.

I think you need to grow up a bit more and pick the uni and course you think you would enjoy more. Stop listening to your parents/family so much.

If need be take a gap year, if you want to go to a different uni.

But stop relying others to make this decision for you.

If I was u, I would’ve done exactly the same. I went to kings for a summer school and honestly loved it so much, the student body is so lovely and it’s in a fab part of London. Honestly you’ll love it there. And it’s an amazing university like world class uni. So enjoy

But I thought magic circle was the one place where King's did better than Warwick...
There's that one last upside gone...
