    This is a nice change from the norm; or at least it could be depending upon how it pans out...

    EDIT: Very much OT, but please can someone help me -- are the words 'Tout comprendre c'est tout pardonner' in my signature green or dark grey? I have a mac and I wanted them to be dark grey, but I'm using a PC at the moment and it's turned green for some odd reason. I'm just wondering if the Windows world thinks I have absolutely no colour coordination? :p:

    My older cousin rejected Cambrudge on the basis of the extremely high workload and the location. She went to Edinburgh University instead.

    I'd say dark grey.

    I know someone who rejected Oxford, and it was because of the pressure and workload, so she went to one of the London unis instead, though I can't remember exactly which one.

    Its lime green on IE, probably grey on firefox.

    And there have been several threads on this topic before - so use search. Also have you read through the 'negatives of Oxbridge' thread in the same forum?

    Good -- must just be this old PC I'm using. Thanks anyway.

    EDIT: Looks like we have divided opinion. How odd... Maybe those who see it as grey are using Firefox?

    I didn't get to the point of getting an offer, but I withdrew my application to Cambridge after two interviews on the basis that I received an offer from LSE which was my preference to study politics anyway. I still wonder whether I would have got an offer, but I don't regret my decision at all =)

    Ah I see, did she know about how high the workload was before she applied, or find out at the interviews?

    I did try and search, well scanned the first couple of pages and couldn't find anything...and I was just curious for actual relevant personal experiences, not just what's bad about oxbridge.

    Harvard is generally ranked higher than Oxford, not that that really means anything.
