Why are people so phony?
A few years ago, I was in a very competitive, Ivy league law school, with lots of type A personalities. My classmates were very culturally insensitive (I'm Indian), and I didn't have any friends in my class. I had lots of friends outside of school, but I hardly got to see them because I was always busy studying. It made things worse that no one in my law school class wanted to socialize with me. It was really hard because I'm a very friendly person. I would always try to be nice, but people brushed me off. Anyways, I ended up deciding that the Ivy law school was not for me and I transferred to a state school. I'm happy I transferred b/c the experience was great. My new classmates were friendly and I ended up graduating with honors and I now practice law.

people are phony in places where it matters to them: jobs, Ivy league schools, etc...
