In my typical fashion I have allowed a strict time limit to govern a very important choice of mine
Here's the deal:
I'm applying to Chemistry at Oxford, both Worcester and Keble interest me, and I have been siding with Worcester as one of my friends is applying to Physics at Keble.
The thing is, after more research I have decided I would prefer to be at Keble, BUT my friend is undoubtebly better academically than me.
My question is:
Will the fact that someone else from my school who is better than me is applying to Keble affect my chances of getting into Keble (i.e. the admissions tutors notice that there's a higher standard coming from my school?) Or, is it the case that such an effect would only apply if he too was applying for Chemistry at Keble? Thanks.
