Re: Cool in High School? - August 27th 2010, 10:39 AM

High School != University.

The way I've had it explained to me is that in university, because of the sheer size of the place there's no sort of "popular" crowd, rather small groups of people so it's not so much a matter of being cool as building your own particular group. Actually apparently quite a lot of students who were popular in high school have difficulty adapting to university as they are forced to leave their social group and work at making friendships. Also afaics there's considerably less machoism, or at least it's gentlemanly machoism so the idea of "cool" kind of breaks down...
