<scans list> YAY for Imperial.

though being at an elitest university does have advantages. I'd love to
have a "F*** you all, you're F***ing ****, I rule!" attitude coming out
of uni, it'd raise confidence lots.

All it really means is that folks from expensive schools still can't
find their way to the Midlands and beyond. This was always true,
Nottingham used to get a few "nice but dims", and that was about it - I
think they liked the pretty campus.

Oh dear. I had heard exeter was 'sloaney' but I am still hopefully going there cos its (relatively) quiet and looks like a nice place to live.

God knows what they will make of a proper dead common northern eejit like me.
