First of all, the other transfer students are a good source.
Second, if you're still worried about being able to make friends in a new place in your mid-20s... I'm just about the most socially inept person ever (ask dresden for proof,) and even I have more social opportunities than I have time to spare. And I don't even really study much (at all, the past few weeks.)
I don't question my ability to make friends; I simply question how transfer students are viewed. I seem to remember a post in the grades thread where someone talked about how everyone at his/her school (don't remember who it was) looked down on them and thought they were stupid since they were a transfer. I'm just more concerned about the stigma...
I think you're referring to a post I made, actually.
Yes, there is a sizeable chunk of people who look down at me/see me as curve bait/whatever. I'm fine with it, because all that accomplishes is highlighting the people who are 1.) Massive douchebags I don't want to associate with; and 2.) curve bait for me
