You are getting to the point where you will start not being liked by everybody you meet. It's just the reality of life. If people judge you and 'alienate' you without really knowing you or your story, then they're not the people you'd want in your life regardless. Just keep your head up, keep/make a few friends to keep close, and get your work done. You saw something in your school that made you want to pick it over the other, so take advantage of whatever it is made you do this! If you don't know yet, then find that 'it', have it be the surrounding location, the good food, the prestige of the school, etc. There has to be bad times in life to make the good times feel good. Everything happens for a reason.
