Awhile ago, at a college orientation, I had a very pretty roommate who said something like "when you're standing next to an unattractive girl, you just know you are better than her." It was awkward because I'm average looking so at first, I felt like she was targeting me but we got on very well. Was she speaking the truth or was she being shallow? I think she was partially speaking the truth because this type of thinking is prevalent in our society. Attractive women seem to have much more value placed in them. Also, guys, do you do the same thing girls do when meeting other guys? Do you compare looks? If you're an attractive guy and you meet an unattractive guy, do you automatically think you are better or are "one-up" on them?

That girl sounds like someone who's going to drop out after her sophomore year.
Here's the deal on attractiveness, it's subjective.
Meaning that one person's version of it is contrasting to another.
If people find her generally attractive more often, then that's their opinion. It's not everyones opinion. And after they get a mouthful of her very jaded point of view, the attraction will diminish.
As far as her targeting you, she could very well be doing that. I've known lots of people that are abusive, and keep someone around they throw indirect comments at like that.
What I don't understand is that people put up with it. I've known people that were aware, and others who were not.
Those that were aware justified it by saying they couldn't find other friends. And that's what people who are abusive pray on, being able to isolate someone they victimize.
So, whether she was fair haired or not after that little disclosure, I'd say college life is too short to spend it with a potential friend who is so vain.
Lose her contact info, and steer clear of her when you get to college. She's not worth your self-respect.1
