So I got into Leeds after working really hard for 2 years after a-levels and I was so happy, I never even imagined someone like me could go to a RG university, I never set my standards that high. But whenever I go on TSR I feel right s**t, people talking about Oxbridge, UCL, Imperial and putting down universities like Leeds etc... makes me feel worthless, even though I’m super proud I made it this far.
So stop reading tsr or stop taking those sort of opinions seriously. Why are you so traumatised by what random strangers say? i presume you don't know these people personally.
And what are the actual facts here: Leeds is at number 91 globally as a uni. That is not bad is it?

P.s. Top 5 don't always live up to expectation and aren't right for some.

Thank you everyone, I understand that not everyone posting on this site is genuine, but it’s easier said than done to stop comparing yourself when you see the same posts 100 times a day Leeds is a good uni, I just hate that people on TSR think you’re a failure if you don’t attend the top 5 universities in the country
No, it's actually very easy to stop comparing yourself. Why do you put so much stock in what other people think? You don't even know them and they don't know you. No one will care that much, you're not that special for people to give that many ****s about outside of your family and friends. Leeds is great, so is studying medicine. But honestly, my opinion doesn't matter. If you're thinking negatively about it based on comparison it suggests that you aren't happy with where you're going. Work on yourself and build yourself up to not let negativity in.

Develop your own personality and stop caring what the herd thinks. Especially degenerates on TSR.

Yes, exactly and precisely! Comparing and negativity is the fast road to depression!

Not to mention a waste of our most precious resource: time. You can spend it where you please, but you can never get it back. Use it wisely.

Yes, true. Sounds like wisdom to me!😄

I'm sorry to hear this

You can't believe everything you read. There have been comments of stigma about oxbridge where any other uni is less than. You'd be surprised at the amount of people who lie about where they're going. :yep:

your success shouldn't be diminished by a bunch of internet strangers. :groovy:

Leeds is a great university and you should be extremely proud of getting in.

TSR isn't representative of the population and there can sometimes be a little bit of snobbery around, don't let that get you down.

Ot should be said that it’s not TSR itself that makes you sad but your thoughts in reaction to what others have said and your comparisons. This is firmly within your control

Leeds is a fantastic uni! Lots of the people who are spending time on the SR bashing certain universities clearly have too much time on their hands, doesn't really reflect very well on them as a person haha!!

just because people on the website got into better unis than you? Who cares? literally who cares? Just get on with your life. TSR is a fantastic place to make friends and share ideas. If you think getting off of this website will help, it wont, because you will also meet people irl who have gone to a "better" uni than you. If you cant even ignore it on this website then good luck irl. Just be happy with what you've got and stop caring what other people think. you will be much happier

I don't think that would be wise, staying on TSR allows you to ask questions of people already expert in your field like Ecolier.

Anyway, you might be just the person to help another poster on another occasion.

The University of Leeds is good. You need to be proud of yourself, not dissatisfied and worthless.
There are many people who miss being you.
