Not my school - and I went to a public high school.

Then again,my school had no concept of 'jocks', 'nerds', the bitchy cheerleaders, etc. etc.

My college is NOT a singles bar - pretty much all the girls I meet have boyfriends - even the ones I have no real interest in. SF State is the home of 'girls with boyfriends who go to other schools'.

College rocks - you can take classes you have interest in/more interest in than the alternatives.
I took Anthropology instead of Bio, and Astronomy instead of Chemistry.

In high school (as far as in-class stuff goes) you're taught to just do what the teacher says.

"I think this poem is a metaphor for the death of his cat - what do you think, class?"
Class: Yeah, uh huh. Okay.

In college, the teacher actually WANTS to hear other opinions.
