I used to be one of those people. I'd treat my roommates and friends badly and look down on them. I got away with a lot because I used to study and was tagged as being 'smart'.
I felt horrible and apologized every inch.
Interestingly I took 2 years off of school and got treated terribly by everyone during the time. And then people started being mean to me because I wasn't doing that well at school.
It made me wonder, does that happen to a lot of people? Students who excel at school who make themselves seem innocent, but really they're not that innocent.

Well what I do know is that I can do basically whatever I want because I am first in my class. The teachers don't care, other students automatically assume everything comes easy to me and I never get suspected of illegal activities or subject to rumor like some of my friends.0

People who are studious and relatively good students are seen as smart, so by proxy, as more of an asset to society. If you've got something like that to offer, most people will generally give you more leeway as punishing these 'good students' will be more detrimental to everyone, as opposed to punishing someone who spends most of their free time at the smoke-pit or similar places that benefit nobody.0
