Oxbridge + Other Universities

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
Has anyone found that if they apply to Oxbridge other universities will not consider their application? I have heard this sometimes happens and don't want to be rejected by other places if I apply to Oxbridge.

    wont happen. notts and warwick (one or both, i think) consider applications to oxbridge as a sign of ambition, and as such are more willing to grab u.

    i'm considering applying to cambridge, but i dont have any worries that the other unis on my list (warwick, notts, liecster and 2 more that are yet to be decided) will reject me.

    bottom line: no worries mate.

    If there's anything more important than my ego around here, i want it caught and shot now

    The mast majority of institutions will actually speed up your application if they see that you are an Oxbridge candidate (esp. London colleges). This is not only because they receive your application sooner than most others but because they realise that the are dealing with academically strong candidates and also that Oxbridge colleges are not large to accommodate all these bright sparks.
    (I speak from experience)

    80s nostalgia ruined my life.
