Let this be a word to the wise OLs: there is no faster way to ostracise yourself from your classmates than being a jerk about your grades. Thankfully, we go to a pretty laid back school, and there is a tactful way to discuss jobs/grades among friends, but if you're looking for ways to tell other people how awesome you are, you should reevaluate yourself.
Honestly I don't think there's that much disdain against him in general because of this (I know I don't). I don't think I've ever actually heard him come out and say "hey I got two 100s," but I have heard people ask him about it (true, he did not deny it). Most of the people who know have heard about it 3rd, 4th hand etc.
It is definitely true that telling more than 0 people your grades is likely to make them widely known. But you don't have to flaunt.
