Restart your client. Or download a pre-downloaded version of the blockchain.

Not really enough details.  Are you using the standard windows client?  What version?  Are you behind a firewall?  Do you use AT&T broadband?

Before port forwarding, try this...

Shut down your client in the normal way, give it about three minutes to completely shut down, and then restart it.  Do nothing to it for an hour.  If when you come back you still have 0 connections and your block number is still in the 130's, come back and ask again.

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences.

You are limited to 8 outbound connections without opening up of port 8333, so that's normal.  Slow is normal also, because of the work that the client is doing while bootstrapping the blockchain is significant.  The network speed is often not the primary limiting factor.  Since you are connecting through your school's firewall, your odds of getting them to open 8333 for you are almost zero, so if you start getting more than 8 connections then it's because your client has found another client running on the school's side of the network.  If you are at a large university, this is almost certain to occur eventually.  Just have patience, go down to the student center and let the thing run.  Playing games on the computer is just going to slow everything down that much more.

You have to learn how your router work to open ports. Saying "i'm on mac" is totally useless in helping you do that. (but allow us to make some funny jokes)

You need to deterimine what is blocking incoming connections to port 8333.  Outbound connections are obviously not blocked, because you have 8 connections.  Most likely you have a broadband router that functions as a firewall, or settings in Mac OSX that block all non-standard ports over 1000 or so.  It's not a Bitcoin client issue.

Nothing.  That is the optional transaction fee, and has zero to do with downloading the blockchain or receiving funds.
