Oxford unsuccessful in attracting leading student Elly Nowell


Magdalen college, Oxford today received a rejection letter from a prospective student who, on reflection, decided that Magdalen college did not quite reach her standards!

Seriously it’s well worth a read. Highly amusing rejection letter. Go have a luck if you fancy a laugh.

“Being a successful student should depend on the student, not on whether or not a couple of academics have deemed you to shine in a twenty minute interview.” #EllyNowell #Oxbridge
