Miami Beach is about as cliquish as it gets unless you are super rich and then you will make all types of new friends. If you buy people drinks in Miami everyone will love you but if you are not all about imagine and money I would not bother moving here, women are all about how much money you have.

Scottsdale and parts of Phoenix are like this, but Reno is not.

Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Kansas City get the same ****. Seriously, though, let those people believe that you have to have gone to high school in those cities to ever fit in there, because people who are that ignorant and judgmental probably aren't the kind of people you'd want around anyway. Don't even bother trying to convince them otherwise. Just make fools of those people by becoming better cities without them.

Uptown Dallas as well. It's been described as having similarities to Scottsdale. Other Dallas neighborhoods are more outgoing and conversational.

I'm also a transplant to the region and have the same experience as you. I think the reputation comes from some of the outer suburbs that are full of the stodgiest of natives to the area like Maple Grove or Forest Lake but in my experience Minneapolis proper isn't cliquish at all.

I find the cliquey mentality so strange after university... Don't most people move to different parts of the country at least several times anyway?

No, most people stay within 20 miles or so of their childhood home, many stay in the same town.
What world do you live in?

lol i agree...people act like everybody are first class world travelers, like no. Most people when they graduate usually either stay put or move to a city somewhere else in the state or a nearby state.
