I feel like I've failed in life Watch

    Last year I applied to Cambridge uni, got an interview, and was rejected. I realised that I had to get in or else I could never get a good job in the future. When I got rejected I came to the realisation of what it all means. I failed at life, I cannot get a good job, and my uni experience will be awful. Everyone will look down on me and think I'm a failure.

    Relationship-wise, no girl will want to be with someone in a bad, low paid job (which is what I will get from another uni). No girl will want to be with someone who is not as clever. To top it all off, I am not very handsome or attractive so I have failed my appearance and my career. I want to kill myself. What should I do with the rest of my life?

    Ffs, not getting into Cambridge is NOT the end of the world.

    But yeah, just kill your self. It's a win-win situation as you and the rest of the world will benefit :yes:

    ...You're actually kidding me, right? I mean, someone who applied to CAMBRIDGE can't seriously be that stupid!

    Imperial/LSE have higher graduate prospects anyway.

    I can't believe you're actually saying that not getting into the 3rd best university in the world means you fail at life. There's a couple of hundred other universities in the UK fgs. Grow up. If this is your attitude, I'm glad they rejected you.

    Haha, it's exactly posts like these why TSR seems to have such a satirical reputation. Snap out of it, failure is a stepping stone to success, and I wouldn't not getting into Cambridge a failure anyway. You will be regarded a pitiful failure if you kill yourself for such a stupid reason as this. People have gone through much worse.

    Hey you didnt fail at life. PLENTY of good things can and will still happen, being at a certain universtiy doesnt guarantee you a well paid job. Its now down to you frankly to take this rejection and show Cambridge what they missed out on. Then you can *****slap them and sh*t all over their faces from great heights. But you've got to accept it, give them the the middle finger and get on with making yourself better.

    Plus if you do sh*t on their face youd be a total bad ass and Im sure youd be able to pull with that story (maybe)

    Haha well played :rolleyes:

    Although I'm pretty sure I didn't get AAAA (probably AAAB), so my place is hardly guaranteed.
    And a part of me would actually prefer to go to Warwick anyway, so I'm not even bothered :p:

    How does one become a virgin (with the exception of birth, which they'd have already been through).
