Hi everyone, I was just wondering what the best way to cope with rejection is? I feel so heartbroken after placing so much value on one university, so I find it so hard to know what to do next. I do not feel as passionate about my other choices. Thanks

I like to tell myself that it is what it is. There’s nothing you can do to change the rejection, what’s done is done. All about mindset and you’ll be stone cold. This goes for other things in life too.

Rejection is hard. Particularly if you have your heart set on a particular university.
But, you know what? Life goes on! If you feel uninspired by your other choices, can you take a gap year and have another go?
I think you need to hang on to the fact that you were in a position to apply in the first place. I’m not sure of the exact statistics but doesn’t that put you in the top 9% or something? Probably less.
To even be realistically able to apply to Oxford means you are bloody bright!
Don’t lose direction.
Keep fighting

You gave it your best shot, and that's what was important. Rejection once also doesn't mean a rejection the next time - if this is what your heart's set on, think of how you would like to make a comeback, and make this comeback stronger.

With that in mind, remember that you are not defined by your university choices.

I'm not always good with rejections too, so I empathise. But remember, you're brilliant - and no matter what happens next, be proud of yourself and where you have gotten to.
