In some ways, yes. I mean sororities and fraternities are basically cliques that require quarterly payment. Even a lot of the other residential communities (co-ops, freshman dorms, etc) which are less blatantly exclusive can be cliqueish. But anywhere you go is going to have cliques, and Stanford does a good job overall encouraging community and inclusiveness, and it’s pretty easy to find a niche (or several) where you fit in.
I want to take math 51, physics 6something, CS 106X and some Thinking Matters freshman fall. Will I inevitably take my frustration out by assaulting a group of Korean tourists in front of MemChu and get expelled? It may also be relevant that I am a charming, sensual lover.
1. If you’re taking Physics 61, why wouldn’t you take 62 at the same time?
2. My advice to all freshman is to leave 5 units for making friends fall quarter. You might want to consider bumping the CS to another quarter if your plan allows it.
3. I don’t know what you being a charming, sensual lover has to do with it, unless you plan on romancing all of your TAs and not having to do any work for your classes? In which case, I’d recommend adding CS 107, just for the lulz.
You can be kind of self-deprecating in your responses to questions. I have no idea who you are, but you're successfully running a tumblr so clearly people identify with what you have to say. At the very least, you have that going for you. I don't know what you actually feel, but if you need one, have a smile. You've given me plenty.
