Cats are the superior domesticated animal.

I expect a backlash from dog lovers, and also those oddities keeping gerbils.

oh dear...iv applied to the last two...does that make me a bad person?
No - the Durham hatred is partly a personal thing (I applied there went for an interview and ended up loathing the place - serious personality clash between me and the university as a whole) and Warwick is universally despised by other unis because it is very slick at attracting students and research funding and good staff - makes the lumbering old dinosaur administration in other uni's look bad in comparison.

Thank god my school decided against General Studies, my boyfriend has to do and it's such a waste as virtually no Unis accept it now. I don't think you really learn anything, all bf seems to do is watch videos, but I guess since I've never studied it myself I would say that. My cousin however managed to get a D in it at A Level, despite getting 3 A's in his other subjects (Maths, English Lit and History).

They're content to recruit on their past reputation rather than make any effort toward better customer service (IMO of course).

my other vendetta is against the elitism at my school - over half the year is applying for oxbridge and they get so much extra attention, the rest of us feel like failures in comparisons, even the ones with straight A predictions.

Three unis -

Bristol (lazy uni)
Durham (overinflated sense of importance and tight markers)
and
Warwick (smug b**tards)

But I don't let them interfere with my professional work
heh
