SFnative: you've got me beat, except that I am the only person in my family to have any education other than high school and my mom is a deaf-mid-life-crisis Montel Williams-guest wanna be who dresses like a 20 year old stripper.

I am British and completed by undergrad (English and French) at Oxford. What most people don't know is that it's a public university and costs no more to attend than any other university in the UK. You'll be shocked at how little this is: currently 3000/ year, and just one year ago it was 1,200!

I LOVED it there - I think it's the most intellectually-stimulating, gorgeous-looking, friendly, interesting, opportunity-filled place I could have gone to. But I think that anyone wanting to go there to enhance law school prospects alone shouldn't. I happen to think that undergrad is a once-in-a-lifetime thing - it can't really be lived with the same intensity twice. I'd definitely recommend an MPhil/MSt instead.

I miss Oxford :'(

Watcha!

The thing about the costs is true... if you're British.

I miss Oxon too. I don't think that I'll ever experience anything like it again.  :-\

If I was, we would both have gotten into our #1 choice with those stories.
