    some irritating 'i hate oxbridge' type of person negged me and finished with a really dumb 'who knows'. didn't really read any of my posts properly at all -

    "Stupid, stupid post. Elitism/snobbery or just pig-ignorance, who knows?"

    whoever you are, just like to point out, the main problem with my post was making judgements about people i dont know, not snobbery...so you're wrong in that respect too.

    If my grades were good enough *sighs dramatically and somewhat dreamily*, I doubt I'd actually like to go to Oxbridge. I may apply, just to see if my application would've been strong enough, but I would have been fearful of the perceived snobbiness of the students there. I was talking to one of my flatmates about this, and she said they weren't snobby at all, and she feels more at home there than she does here.

    Also, I'm quite aware that the accomodation is rather expensive there, and the workload is immense. I'd also be a little put off with all the formalities, which is why I chose the newest college when applyign to Durham. The collegiate system sounds wonderful though!

    Yeah, least I had a reason.

    Viewed using Firefox on a few different Linux distributions, it appears to be a shade of grey

    How deserving??? Christ, how are your SATs going? Derserving, my ass. It's to do with your intelligence and aptitude for study. Not that because you think it'll be fun to study in a castle and that you hope your best friend will be a ginger kid called ron.
    WTF? :rofl:



    My SATs actually went really well thank you; should be hearing from the American unis I applied to in good time.

    I doubt that considering your postings suggest that you're considering psychology in clearing.

    Do you honestly think Cambridge would have thought your girlfriend deserved an offer if they knew that she wasn't up for a very high workload and didn't want a heavily science based course?Do you actually think she didn't research camb? Well, she did heavily. She applied there because she though it was likely to get an offer, more so that other places. If you know anything about medical interviews at camb, you'll know that is is heavily scientific as opposed to being ethically bases. She felt quite comfortable knowing that and combined with her grades and BMAT scores she had a great chance of getting in. That's why she applied there. If camb was her sole offer, she would have been more than happy. Also she was more than happy with the workload, she just preffered nottingham.

    Are you telling me that when/if you apply for uni, you'll take into account the applications of others and how deserving they are?

    Your post was hilarious. How old are you, I'm guessing about 14.
    Wow I'm really getting under your skin, aren't I? We've even started throwing in (wrong) age guesswork :p:

    There's no point arguing with you, it's your girlfriend so you can't see past your rose tinted glasses. What you girlfriend did was rather selfish but I'll let it rest for now.

    You did.
    'Sorry, I know this is late, but could someone please tell me if any psychology courses were in clearing at all? Particularly interersted in Loughborough, Nottingham, Sheffield, Warwick, Aston, Southampton, Leicester, Bristol and Leeds.'
    Unless you're now going to try and get yourself out of this mess by suggesting it was 'for a friend'.

    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:
    Definately green.

    Do you mean to say that you only applied to the one university you hoped to go to? As if you didn't, then surely you're being just as selfish.
