are several different types of New Trier students, often intersecting. 99% of New Trier students fall into at least
one of these types.
1). Rich asshats
with way too much money and way too little attention from their parents. Therefore, they try to grab attention by spending their ample supplies
of money outlandishly, and/or on drugs.
2.) "College factory" geeks who spend Friday and Saturday nights studying so they can get into
Princeton. What school you get into
in New Trier is very important. New Trier requires extraordinary tests of academic devotion
to reach the upper echelons, and can assign
upwards of 5 hours of homework a night. These
students are very competetive about college spots, and will overload on distinctions and extra-cirriculars. Some of these
people have parents who only care about the prestige
of where their student goes to college. Those in category 1, however, don't give a shit because they often
have gyms and libraries named after them
at certain schools
by the wretched New Trier culture and conformist
system that they create their own wretched culture and conformist
system that operates as a proud underclass
in the school.
4.) People with
causes such as Amnesty International, PETA, the Green Party and Greenpeace who like to talk
a good game but really don't accomplish a damn to help anyone, and then drive their parents' SUV to buy shit at Walmart.
5.) Right-wing douchebags who think the fact that they have
money makes them
exceptionally special in the world. Will wear suits at every possible
occaision, and fancy shit on all others. Most have
never met a poor
person or a black person.
1.) Paris Hilton. Lots of people
like that in NT. Tons of cash, DUIs, fashionable shit, entitlement, heirs to large fortunes.
2.) Girl RW, who made copies of her exam study guide
which was far more thorough than the one the teacher gave, or who cried when
she flunked a minor English assignment Freshman year. Goes
to Yale. Or Guy AO, who claimed
to be valedictorian by comparing his GPA with others
(NT does not do class rank). Guy AO's parents worked at Harvard, and he proclaimed that he "didn't need
to write a good essay to het in there." He was rejected in his early application, but still had the option to apply regularly, leaving
him to proclaim, "now I don't want to go to Harvard." Goes
3.) Like most Goths
liberals. Like some actors. Only like being liberal
because it makes them
feel good, not because they like to help others.
5.) Steve Forbes. Just think
of the stupidest, most ignorant asshole you know and then think
dumber and more insensitive. A long line of famous these have come from New Trier, including Donald Rumsfeld and Charlton Heston.
