A prep generally refers to girls. They are always happy and sweet, and sometimes cheerleaders, not the slutty kind, but the all-star competitive kind. Preps are not all of those stupid high school girls that love Hollister and wear an inch of powder make-up. Preps love high end designer clothing such as gucci and prada, but most often wear less expencive couture such as Juicy, Sevens, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Lilly pulitzer, True religions, and rock and republics. Preps play tennis, golf, ski, go to country clubs, and vacation often. Preps are only blonde if it is natural or they have tasteful highlights. They only wear black to funerals, because there are so many prettier colors to wear. True preps are scarce in north carolina and other boring states, I am the only prep at my school.

A popular person in high school.

Good things:

Have best time of their life.
Have lots of sex, usually.
Have lots of friends, and lots of hot girls/boys.

Bad things:

Out of highschool, probably won't succeed.
Probably contract aids.
Max was a prep; was very popular and had lots of fun in highschool. When he left highschool, he became a no lifer on the streets.

Preppy girls are snobby bitches that criticize people that arent rich and wear lables.They makes peoples lifes hell sometimes!They think some who is diffrent from them is a freak when they dont even know the freakin person.
They walk around like they are the shit and wear little ribbons in their hair with their louis vuitton handbag that cost way to much,and think they can do what ever the hell they want just because they are "popular".For the people who are preps you need to get a effing life! there is way more to life then being popular and expensive clothes,when anyone mentions the words thrift shop they automatically think you are poor and gross and tease you for it because you cant afford Gucci and the other shit they wear.
They care way to much about what people think of them,and spread crap that isnt even true,and the stuff that is true shouldnt be spread all over the school,all they do is gossip and hurt peoples feelings.
Prep:Look at my new sweater...it only costs $123,000.00
Anti-prep or who ever:omfg thats so cool...not!that costs more then my freakin house you dumb bitch!!!!
A prep is someone who wants to look good. They may wear american eagle or abercrombie or express. They also wear lacoste and burbery and all that good shit. But preps aren't all smart and don't always end up in good colleges. If they do, it's becuase they're parents buy their way into the college if the kid is too dumb to get in. So preps just wanna look good even if it means shopping at american eagle.
I don't need an example to explain it, if you can't see the real picture of what a prep is then that's ur own fault.

A prep doesn't neccesarily come from "old money". Yes, it is true that we have money, but as was mentioned in another definition, we know how and where to spend it. Preps most often spend their lives trying to "get ahead of the pack," and most of the time, whatever we do is for the purpose of outdoing ourselves, and more importantly, outdoing other. Preps spend our lives trying to be the best we can be. (Yes, our entire lives, true preps are part of the preppy lifestyle and culture, and its not just something that is over when you are no longer a teenager)
We don't neccesarily shop exclusively at Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren, Saks, etc. We also may shop at American Eagle, Hollister, Nordstrom, Lord and Taylor, or Abercrombie. Or we may mix it up and shop at any combination of the above. One thing, however, is certain: A true prep would not be caught DEAD in clothes that came from Wal Mart or any other similar store.
A prep is extremely invlolved in, and almost obsessed with education. We view education as the basis of our lives. Although we may not attend a true "prep school" in our early years, we almost certainly go on to an Ivy League University, or another university at the same level. Most of us speak at least one other language, most often French and/or German, and we normally study overseas for at least a semester, if not for longer, in order to continue developing the culture with which we were brought up.
Contrary to popular opinion, we do not hate other "groups", such as punks, goths, nerds, losers, etc. They simply do not take the time to associate with us and get to know us, and we don't waste our precious free time, of which we have little due to our academic, extracurricular, and social calendars, trying to make someone befriend us whom we know would only put on a front toward us. I do, for example, have a small number of friends from other groups with whom I associate, simply because instead of talking *about* me behind my back, they talked *to* me and found out that preps really aren't bad people.
In short, preps are those students in your school who use proper grammar, correct peoples grammar without fear of being picked on, speak two or even three languages for fun, not just because of a graduation requirement, apply themselves to school wholeheartedly, yet still fit in a full extracurricular and social schedule, and have to look their best everyday. The people who you swear never sleep! (and lots of times we don't)

A person who sacrifices everything that makes them Themselves so that other people will like them. They aren't always douchebags but ALOT of them are. Only the more posery preps wear Abercrombie(Zombie) and Hollister. Even when you say they don't you're wrong because the preps DO make fun of other people, (punk, goth, nerd, geek, normie) for not wearing 60$ jeans. They use words like "Krunk" and "Dawg" because MTV tells them to. Preps almost always have inflated egos, They will do things like threaten a passive for listening to Rock who is about 8" taller than them. They will ridicule people who listen to Metal and rock (System of a down, RAGE, Deicide, Jimi Hendrix, HIM,Clash, MSI) and call them losers for not buying "Young Jeezys" new cd. I usually just try to avoid them but their EVERYWHERE. If your Girlfriend comes back to your place with a pait of ripped jeans for you that she bought for 69.99$ at Hollister, then you might have to put the bitch down.
Prep: "Hey Jessie, look at that loser listening to that crap System of a Down. What a goth. We should make fun of him for standing there, listening to that stuff. MTV never liked it so It must be Dumb!"

Prep#2: "Just ignore him. Hey look! 5% off all pants that cost over 60$! Let's go!"
