    In your opinion.
    No, my statement was entirely objective.

    It was yours which took nothing more than your opinion and tried to pass it off as fact.

    Also UCL is a better medical school for producing clinicians.

    So why not do the entire course there?

    And it was too difficult for you to string together that it was not a fact.

    I could say "UCL produces doctors who can fly"

    Would you still have any doubt that this was not a fact?

    No, but I would still say that you were talking ****, and objectively I would be correct. My opinion doesn't come into it.

    It could be credible you have no idea, as it is something that is not measured.

    A lack of research and a slight chance of possible credibility does not change the fact that you were talking ****.

    Perhaps. After all it's obvious that the only reason we chose Oxford or Cambridge was the fact that we're prestige obsessed posh gits more interested in research than practising clinically anyway... why else would we come here?

    God no. I heard that at some medical schools you actually have to meet patients! I don't want to have to talk to anyone who's sick and poor!

    To be honest I think that we most definitely could not meet patients. What if they were not upper class?!?! I think I would drop with shock :p:

    It is very presumptuous that it was me who gave you the negative rep.

    I've removed this post from the profiles thread as it's only for profiles of people who have received decisions from ALL the places they applied - you appear to still be waiting for a decision from Sheffield so please post this in the profiles thread once you've received that decision as it will be very useful to add to the medical school lists then.
