    I was an athlete/nerd. Basically too shy to hit on girls. Didn't learn how easy it was until university....

    Boundary spanner. Got along with the popular and unpopular kids. But was definitely a well-recognized uber-nerd.

    I don't know. I guess you could consider me a nerd (ranked 7 out of 100) but I'm not really nerdy. Besides being hardcore into technology and Macs and Photoshop, I'm also the kid people stare at as I walk through the halls. Since I go to a private school, we have a dress code. But on dress down days, I wear all black and a barbed wire necklace. Apparently, I'm scary that way. But yeah, I'm in the middle. Friends with everyone in my class, but only known as a freaky goth kid in other classes.

    Too opinionated and principled, not very popular. Never part of the 'in crowd', but that was never something I adapted my actions to to achieve.

    In hindsight, I wish I'd been bothered by stuff less, and had more friends.

    Pretty much me. But, instead of uber-nerd... it's more of, Apple Fanboy + Uber-liberal + Future President of the world. haha. I've been told. :p

    Well, I didn't really have an identity as I had a lot of "nerd" friends but I also was friendly with a lot of the other popular kids. I guess I was a boundary-spanner to a degree.

    I was voted most scholarly.

    ...That pretty much sums it up. :eek: Although, I had many good friends and got along with just about everyone I met throughout my various classes.

    I have a lot of friends at my school, but its really big, so there aren't really any "popular people" here. I'm president of my class, and involved in a lot of different things, so I know a big variety of people. I'm in the top percentile of my class, and am really academic, liberal, etc (apparently I'm the future president as well, haha)..so yeah, I don't know what my "ranking" would be...

    I was invisible.

    Not into sports at the time. Way into computers. And in the 80's, that didn't get you very far with other kids.

    So, I had no friends. But I had an Apple II+, and eventually an Apple IIgs which I used to play Ultima III-V, Wasteland, Bard's Tale and Lode Runner.

    School can suck. But it ends. Be yourself, don't ever change to be popular.

    Remember, you only get to be 16-18 once. Enjoy it, but don't overdo it. Don't make any decisions that end up restricting what you want to do. (This is my don't get anybody pregnant rant). :)

    I'm rather surprised with my school. I'm one of the smartest people in my grade, openly get called a nerd and whatnot, yet I'm friends with practically everybody in my grade. Add into it certain social aspects that would probably result in people at other schools becoming outcasts of some sort, and yet it's done nothing but strengthen my relationship with all of my friends.

    Little off topic; but, I'm reallllly sad that my friend is going to college this coming fall semester. He was a Senior this year, I was a Junior, and we were in the same Mechanical Drafting class and I really really got to like him a whole bunch. Like, he's probably the only one of my friends that I don't have anything bad to say about them. And now he's moving away soon and I'm really pretty pissed about the whole thing.

    Interesting that you mention that. I was also pretty politically engaged in high school (even moreso now) and was/am a pretty decent public speaker. So some similarities, haha.

    i had my own group, but i talked with everybody: i.e. i was the "nice" guy who smiled all the time.

    i was also the smart kid who everyone thought was a nerd until they got to know me.

    also, i was student council pres and involved in a ton of clubs (basically all of them except the athletics... i wasn't coordinated enough for any of the sports we had. bring on the soccer (football for you europeans) and swimming!).

    At my first high school, I've probably been forgotten by just about everyone already. At my second high school, I was in with the punk rock crowd, even though I didn't fit in with them particularly well.
