I don't think i've ever heard it first hand (though my memory sucks, so who can be sure) but i'd definitely heard about it. I'm think the meme i heard specified college rather than school in general, but again it's hard to be sure at this late a date.

I figured it was probably true, in part because jr high and high school sucked so it seemed (and i hoped) that college _had_ to be better than that.

And despite lots of stress and drama college _was_ awesome, in large part because i had so many other geeks to socialize with. Oh, and there were lots of cute geeky girls, and by my senior year i actually got to _date_ one of them! :)

And college continues to stand out as a highlight after the fact since it seems so hard to make local geeky friends outside of it.
