Grew up poor.  Dad was in the military (who at times had to work 3 jobs at once to ensure we ate), mom worked when could.  I am the first of my family in college.

I grew up mostly in Jersey, not poor, but not well off either, I guess straight up middle class, haha.

I grew up fabulously wealthy and took tennis lessons at the nearby country club.  I had a driver take me to school.

I've always wanted to say that.

I did have a driver take me to school, though.  A city of Phoenix bus driver.  And I was rich in love and family.

i'm from the 'burbs. the kind of 'burbs with crazy high taxes b/c the public schools are so good, so all the parents are smartypantses who want their kids to have a great education.so i think 99.5% of grads from my HS go off to college, and mostly T1 ones at that  :P

we all got to college and were like, this is hard? this isn't harder than high school! i was pulling all-nighters in grade 7!
