What does it say that Stanford's gifted program's form only prints out half the information you've entered. And that you have to fax or mail it? OK, I know, it's so they can have a parental signature on file but what, there are so many desperate gifted children whose parents are ignoring their talents that the program must be protected from them registering themselves? I think the *kids* need to be signing these forms.
Well, it's a step above the DeAnza College application with it's randomness in acceptable formatting of dates and phone numbers. WTF? Was this like some challenge for the upper divisions - design a form to run on weird outdated hardware, and divide into teams but don't talk to each other?
Oh, and by the way....
Thanks for applying to De Anza College. Your admission for winter quarter 2009 is confirmed.
Yup, that's me. Wish me luck
