Most people cherish their 4 years in college as a time of freedom and personal experimentation. Girls are plentiful and the worries of the real world have yet to hit most college students.
Well, not so for the alpha nerd. He has spent years studying his heart out, either of his own desire or his parent's guiding will. Thus, he has excellent academics and is generally very smart. The alpha nerd is the likable guy who the girls want to make over. They are also highly sought after among nerdy and sci-fi girls on and off the campus.

The alpha nerd usually has the potential to become an alpha male. However, he's missing a few of the key components. He either never bothered to learn it, or is so focused on a subject that they never paid much attention to girls.
As such, they are very intelligent in their chosen fields, much so than their frat counterparts. Despite their lack of sexual success, they usually go on to do very well in life. The alpha nerd is extremely attractive to certain girls who consider themselves “a bit dorky” and like other guys who exhibit these traits.
