    Sorta kinda but not really. We really dont talk about grades though. They joke about the school im going to because its a good school but sometimes I do and say really dum things.

    In my Asian group of friends I'm in the middle or the lesser intelligent one. In my American group of friends, yes, I am the smartest one.

    Yes. I have a really good memory and tend to pick up everything I read, so I know a lot of random crap, which people equate with intelligence.

    In my group, we are all smart. However, I am prbly thought of as the one who works hard for his A's but isnt as "naturally intelligent." In my school as whole, I am prbly looked at as a top student.

    In my main group of friends, I am just one of them.

    In most groups, I am the 'smart one'.

    I tend to stay with a smart group. I'm probably the smartest in terms of knowledge outside of school, but I have ridiculous friends in terms of school smarts.

    I get the best grades and test scores, but I'm not very smart compared to most of my friends...they're just all lazy as hell XD

    There are a few of us who are bandied about as "the smart ones." It oftentimes depends on subject. I probably work more to cultivate the image than anyone else, though.

    no =[ im kinda smart... but my inability to turn things in on time has forced me to be on the bottom end of the list.

    First of all, I'd like to comment on how amusing the extraordinary amount of modesty on this thread is.

    Second of all, it depends on what group of friends I'm with. But with my main group of friends, which mainly consists of Asians, I am DEFINITELY the "stupid" once by principle, given that my GPA was significantly lower and course load less rigorous than theirs. But can I keep up with them? Certainly. The only difference is that they either try very hard in school or they're inherently smart, whereas I don't try in school and am not blessed with the aptitude to completely blow off school and still walk away with a 4.0.

    My classmates think I'm smart but I think I just did really badly on my chemistry test.
