well, im not sure about other states, but this is basically what a prep is considered in PA...
Someone who lives on the mainline- t/e(thts me!:]), radnor, brwyn mawr, & sometimes west chester. we normally go to private schools (notre dame, agnes irwin, rosemont, springside, episcipoal, malvern, devon, the Prep, baldwin, cdssh, etc.) also, tho, some public skools like stoga:], & radnor are considered to almost be like private skools except they are ginormis. we normally play a variety of sports, hang out with people tht evry1 knows (like, if u were 2 say their name, even if they dont go to ur skool, evry1 would know), have like insane parties, & hook up
a lot (but were not sluts). as far as religion were Catholic...end of story. ethnicity...normally irish (yup, the McMansions). normally we live in fairly big houses with about 2-3 acres...however not all are huge. we do take the bus:], we arent dropped off by shofers, and generally are parents dont drive us cuz were like afraid to take the bus or something(my parents wouldnt take me period). in addition to all the sports we play, we normally swim for our country clubs. generally, we all do field hockey, lax, bball, track, & swimming.for what we wear, on days were just like hanging out, sweatpants (from a sport that we did), the big baggy kind, & a shirt (like for ur class or something). if were getting dressed up, then normally hollister, a&f, ae, etc. we normally all shop at the king of prussia mall, but exton & springfield are popular2. were actualy pretty down-to-earth, despite popular belif, & were not all geniuses (defs not me!)!
preps dont always wear collared shirts.
