I have that too.

I'm also the only one who doesn't drink.

I forget that I am so much better than my friends (not trying to be cocky here, but I am), so I expect the same standards of them as I do of myself when working... :(

Remember to give allowances...

I don't think you should be either. I know I have a couple of friends that I wouldn't call 'geniuses' (to put it mildly), but they're okay, they're not 'stupid' or any less of a good friend just because they don't know something!

Just a warning, if you realise that you're above average, please don't be a complete git and become an uppity arse about it... Sorry to be upfront, but it is REALLY PAINFUL to everyone around you and eventually, yourself.

But good luck through college! I hope you have a wonderful experience and come out with lots of awards and degrees and all that! :D

I don't think it's a matter of how smart someone is. Instead, it's whether or not they chose to make use of the intelligence they have.

That is almost what you could call a divine truth... in any case, I believe that wholeheartedly.

Neither. You don't have to worry about them. If they've gotten into college they're doing okay so far...intelligence isn't the only thing you need to succeed in life, so let them be. If they ask for your help, give it as much as you can. If they aren't asking for it, don't assume they want or need it. They'll manage their own lives - many less-than-clever people do, some better than intelligent ones. And if they don't do so well, it's not your responsibility to "fix" their lives no matter how smart you are.

And I guess you should be happy you're intelligent, but them being less clever doesn't make you anymore clever and it won't make your marks any higher or your life any better. Don't dwell on how you stack up against others or vice versa. It doesn't really get you anywhere.

Anyway, it's natural to be a bit worried about your friends. But just be a good friend, not a mother or a teacher. They probably don't want that from you.

I feel like this...
I also feel like I'm dragging one through college. They told me if I wasn't there friend they would have dropped out.

The funny thing about humans is that most of us believe ourselves to be the smartest person we know, don't just dismiss your college friends like that, maybe they're just immature, or want to have a good time, maybe they spend their free time going out for the unique wild experiance of college instead of staying home and reading, and don't forget that knowing facts is never a measure of intelligence, don't write your friends off so fast.
