    ...Did you develop an obsession with Universities, their rankings, their endowment, their statistics etc?

    Since I joined TSR, one of the main things I'm thinking about is University.

    Did you also develop this?

    Nope, couln't caer less.
    I'd rather be in a place I liked than be sure of X graduate prospects or Y student satisfaction.
    I mean, who else really cares where you went to (unless it's well renowned for your subject, or it's Oxbridge)?

    Certainly not with league tables. If anything I am even more repulsed by them after seeing how ignorant people rant on about them with no evidence whatsoever.

    Other way round - I signed up so that I could talk about uni choices and courses etc.

    I'm not into that kind of thing any more.
    These days my hobbies are vitamins and abortions.

    Haha! I went through a period of being a bit obsessed with unis, then I realised that actually...league tables aren't everything. When I see threads along the lines of "I'll die if I don't get into Oxbridge"...yeah that annoys me. TSR has been good for helping me decide which unis would suit me/helping me with ucas stuff. Thanks TSR! :p:

    It's made me a lot more aware of the processes you have to go through to apply, but I'm not really at that stage yet. However, information about sixth forms and colleges, which has been super helpful.

    Did I really just say super helpful? Oh dear.
