Ahem. I think I don't... read her as abusive, exactly? Which definitely informs my perspective.
She's involved in a lot of stuff, narratively - she's connected to William, connected to Damien, gets an award for a theory that made Ellen absolutely furious in HH, and knows stuff about Musette. She made a spectacle out of breaking up with Damien, and I find that 1)interesting, 2)hilarious, 3)impressive, 4)something I desperately want to know more about (was it before or after she dated William????? People who want to know whether it wasn't all a stratagem to get in William's good graces want to know!). She's a divergent perspective and she's got lots of opinions, so that's interesting. I mean, in WH she comes across as a bully and a coward (throwing her weight around during Initiation, and when she finds someone who won't take her BS, she's so scared of losing face that she plays the "I like a girl with spirit" card and pretends to be impressed), but she's still fun. With Angela, it's a question of whether she values being unpleasant or being powerful the more, and whether her need to be unpleasant at people won't bite her in the ass. It's pretty impressive that someone with her personality got elected Class President, and I'm also curious on what kind of ambitions she has.
Plus she's got the sort of abrasive personality I find hilarious in fiction, and her backing down by pretending not to care when freshmen refuse to take her bullying could make for a fun/interesting dynamic as a sidemance as well.
Also if we can date two-thirds of the William-Damien-Angela kerfuffle it would be pleasantly symmetrical to be able to get involved with Angela.
But she's not a good person, no.
And I like the idea of Jacob because he's got this interesting parallel/mirror thing with MC, and for a guy who's otherwise pretty unpleasant (will we ever know what exactly he was doing to poor Manuel?), he's got his friendship with Minnie, which looks genuine.
