Got an email today saying I was automatically disqualified from college of the canyons Fall 2013 program because my application was incomplete.
I put my address, and accidentally overlooked putting my city and zip code. For that, they send me an automated insincere email saying something along the lines of 'sorry bud, you're done, apply again and hopefully you'll get in 6 months from now.'
I love getting perfect grades, working my butt off, and jumping through all their specialized, personalized, and time consuming application requirement loops, just to get dropped like a sac of potatoes because I didn't put my city/zip code on the application.
Sorry COC, when I'm applying to many schools, and I happen to be a human being, mistakes are bound to happen.
I really hope something positive comes out of this, because I think this is just ridonkulous. Luckily I've applied to other schools, so not all hope is lost. It just would have been nice to have the opportunity to get my fair shot.
