    I wasn't. I see that there are many smart people here, that probably were.

    I grew in the 5th largest city in NJ. We probably have 100 cities.

    We had a very large graduating class. I was in many of the same classes as the Valedictorian, she was the child of two doctors. If I had been in easier classes I could have gotten straight A's. Anyway, I was a little lazy in school.

    Not High School, but I was at my Jr. High School graduation.

    Alas, there were 31 others ahead of me whom I would have had to slaughter if I were to be my high school class validictorian.

    No, I was in the top 10% of the class, though. Both my parents however were the Valedictorians of their prospective high school classes.

    High school? Far from it. Real far.

    By the time I got to college though, I did respectably. Not the valedictorian, but I graduated with honors in two majors. Which admittedly, isn't quite as impressive as stripping one's way through seminary. :rolleyes:

    Wasn't the Val, no. Was good friends with her though... and the Sal, too. I did pretty well; 10th in my class of 450+ ((462 if I remember correctly... Not that it matters. :] )).

    I graduated 27th out of 500 and some kids. BUT, I dated the Valedictorian all during 12th grade and we went off to University together! She is a DA in a southern city now, and we remain friends.

    No, but I was top 5% of my class and top 3 on the SAT.

    If I would have applied myself, I could have been. But alas, I only ended up in the top 15 of my class. :(

    Yes I was, not because I was smart, but because the rest of my classmates we're morons.

    I wasn't had no intention of being so. I was a kid who never applied themselves. Even in college I find it hard to do so.

    nope. too lazy.

    only smart story i have is that they sent me "upstairs" when i was in first grade to the second grade class for reading. old brick schoolhouse - everyone was in the same room per grade. no ac. old radiator style heating. i remember the janitor throwing sawdust on the floor if someone puked. made it easier to clean i guess.

    my 5th grade teacher screamed at me once in front of everyone. loud lady with big hair from oklahoma. "sometimes you just sit there like a bump on a pickle!"

    I could have been, but, unfortunately, high school doesn't reward learning the material; they reward doing mindless work. I consistently scored the highest mark on all tests, but ended up in the exact middle standing wise.

    I did great in grade school. I got straight E's (for Excellent). Then 7th grade came and I became a B+ student.

    I probably could've been, or close to it, if I hadn't been too depressed to study. (plus a bit of laziness, admittedly.)

    I graduated 45th of 280 students.

    Yes, I was in high school. (I used to hate telling people, until my English teacher once told me that if you worked very hard for something, then you shouldn't have a problem admitting that you did.)

    Like Mindseye, I will also be graduating with high-honors from my university, too. Unlike him, though, it had very little to do with stripping, although, some might have been involved to change a grade or two. :tongue:

    (Just kidding! Sheesh!)

    I suppose you could say I was- in the night class I took to get my HS diploma, I had the best grades and had the distinction of being the best.
