You don't need Oxford to do what you love. There are many more opportunities out there waiting.

I know, but I kinda had my heart set on it. Durham seems like a poor substitute. But I like every uni I applied to so I guess I'll be happy anyways

What do you need by "You're better off"?

It's a meme. Top tier schools have good employment stats because they attract good students. Not because of reputation

Yeah, but I'm more likely to get employed with "Oxford" on my CV (résumé if you're Murican) than, say, Durham.

Doesn't matter though. Finding a job isn't hard anyway. What's hard is moving up in your jobs. And when they're considering promotions, obviously your uni doesn't even enter into it.

No that's bullshit. I've been to both normal and ivy league and ivy league schools definitely spend more and care more. You sound like a jealous prick.

I studied at a top 10 school too for MSc, and did undergrad at one out of the top 200. I don't disagree that top tier schools have some advantages, but the advantages are vastly exaggerated. See

Never think that sub-Einstein-level contributions to society are the equivalent of working a minimum wage job. Whatever you do in life, it is going to be great. Take a page from our president. Look where it got him.
