Hey, I’m applying for private schools (not catholic or uniformed, just prep schools) for next year… From what I heard, a lot of the people who go there have parents who are CEO’s, presidents, and just plain rich and their children are snobbish and wear the most expensive brands. My parents have successful careers (thus allowing tuition) but i dont wear locoste or have coach bags or any of those rich things.
Would this make me not fit in, in prep schools?
Yeah, sure… some kids are really wealthy. Most parents are "somebody’s", most wear designers, but their no snobs.
Obviously you’ll get one or two who think they’re everything, but my family is pretty wealthy, I wear designer labels… but I also wear other labels. I don’t mind shopping at a target or something.
Honestly, Coach is not designer, so it is pretty popular since it is relatively affordable, but other than that no one cares about logos or anything.
Again, you’ll get one or two people who think private school people are snobs and they themselves act like snobs, but that’s it. Everyone else is normal. You’ll fit in, trust me
I have SOOO many friends on scholarship who could care less about labels! No one’s going to say "Ew! Your not wearing Lacoste! Your not very popular!" Personality comes WAAAY before money!
A non uniformed, non religious school is exactly like a public school, accept with fewer people in the classes, so it’s a friendlier and more welcoming environment!
