Default Top 10

Curious how many brainiacs (AKA nerds) we have on TBH
How many graduated top 10 of their HS class?
Not top 10% but graduated #1-10
I was #6 of course I only had 9 in my class but letís not get too focused on that

Represent you brainiacs

NoÖ..but you failed to put the proper punctuation at the end of your second sentence so your first post is now suspect as to its veracity.

I graduated 5th in my HS class of 175ish. My academic scholarship paid for my degree at UTSA. Not sure how, "smart" I am, but Im am thankful to have had great parents and some really good teachers. The Lord has blessed my wife and I with lil brain kiddos as well. They think its cool to be nerds and I wont tell them otherwise.

To all you folks in the top echelon, you're welcome! If it weren't for folks like me down on the other end, you'd have nothing on which to build! Middle of the pack for me, but my wife was H.S. valedictorian with a 3.9 something in college. Dang badminton!

I would have done a little better if the teachers would've let me stay in the class.
For some reason most of them thought I could learn more in the office. Their expectations and my goals weren't even in the same book. I guess it worked out for the best. I did graduate with a bit of cheering.

Towards the bottom. But I had high enough SAT scores to get myself accepted plenty of places and even few scholarships. I love to learn but showing up to class was never my thing. Also took 8 years to get my undergrad. <—- slacker
