D = Fail
You are a straight-A student with an uptight pretty-two-shoes personality. You probably wear sweater vests.
You are an overachiever, spending too much time studying and not enough having fun. You probably wear something sensible based on the day’s weather.
You’re a B-student and a bit of a follower, which isn’t necessarily bad, because you’ve got a lot of friends, but you can have original thoughts, too, you know. You wear the same ironic t-shirts as your friends.
You’re not bothered by your C-student mindset, because you’ve got a mean streak and adults-can’t-run-my-life way about you. You don’t care what you wear; they’re just clothes.
You’re the naughty kid, who might do a stint in juvie if you’re not careful. You rotate wearing the same week’s worth of dirty clothes, most of which are black.
