    Hmmm, good question. Some people think popularity is being liked by a lot of people. Some think it is being liked by the "in" crowd (usually the attractive people or the rich people). Prep refers to "college prep" meaning someone who is preparing to go to college--usually slacks and polo shirts for guys...not sure what preppy is for girls. I wouldnt worry about it. Like who you like and leave the rest for the vultures.

    Well....when you get to high school, the popularity thing goes away, it really doesn't matter as long as you have some good friends... Usually if you're pretty or handsome you're automatically liked by everyone of the opposite sex and hated by the ones that are the same. Popularity isn't judged by the stuff your saying....name brands aren't even in right now.

    Popularity in schools mean that all the kids think that you are cool for what you have or what you do and they know you and you have a lot of cool friends. But, in teenage years you will never know!

    Source(s): IN our schools there were popular kids and they were the exact definition above.

    prep stands for someone who acts like they go to collage and are still freshmen.

    the only thing "popular" people do is act like someone there not the only opinion that matters about yourself is yours!
