Really? I hope it's not like that at uni, most people seemed to grow out of herding like that in 6th form!(Original post by Mr_Steve_Stifler)
Because I'm just cynical, the friendship groups are just going to be identical to that of college. Preps with preps, sluts with sluts, goths with goths etc. Nothing different, pre-selection is an unshakeable force which will determine how well you fare.
I'd just go out into the real world and make friends if you're scared of messing up on the first day. Then at least you'll seem to be busy with many friends anyway. That way people will assume you're quite popular and want to be friends with you instead of you running around trying to impress them which isn't going to work from my personal experience, hence why I have no friends in college now but a lot of friends outside of college - its weird like that.
We have the answer...
