I’m definitely not upper class, I think I straddle the line between working and middle class;

How do you define middle class anyway

Like lower middle class/bordering working class. I'm probably working class tho, if I'm honest

Mine is a bit iffy.

I've been somewhat raised middle class but that's largely through glomming onto my grandparents retirement

In terms of personal achievements and assets, strictly working class.

In the next year i'll graduate (better late than never) and likely buy a house outright through inheritance, so that kinda shoves me several rungs back up to middle again.

My background is lower-middle, though. (As in, the lower end of middle-class.)

I guess I am perhaps "middle-middle" now, but I still feel a bit young to be changing what class I feel I came from, lol. When I'm older, I guess I'll consider myself middle-middle.

Tbh, in today's society, I'm not sure how helpful these "class" considerations are.

Anybody who got into Cambridge, especially for a super competitive subject like medicine, is upper middle class at bare minimum irrespective of family background (yes I stalked your profile)

I’m not sure; Oxbridge by definition are fairly upper class universities, it’s fair to assume anyone who gets into them is likely middle class at minimum

Depends how you look at it, they are to me. If you have to work for a salary... the claim to middle class is on a shaky peg, independent wealth is the key IMO.

I would disagree with this. Upper-middle class is genuinely a very wealthy background to come from. I can assure you that I am nowhere near "upper-middle class". Getting into Oxbridge isn't necessarily linked to class background.

Yeah I guess, anybody that can rely on their investments for money and doesn’t need to work at all is arguably upper class
