Yay! lets move on to replace the entire STAFF of Central Washington University!
I'm tired of going into the offices and yelling at people just to get something done.
Registrar's office:"I'm sorry we seem to have lost your transcript from that school...there is a file in here with a different last name, I think that was a mistake."
Me: "Does it say Coffeyville Community College?"
Reg. Office: "Yes, but the last name is different."
Me: "did you see on my paperwork where it says 'marital status?'"
Reg. Office: "oh...if you could come down to our office to varify that this is your trascript we'll be happy to help you."
Me: "I don't want to waste my time. That IS my transcript."
Reg. Office:"If you do not come down and varify then we will have to ask you to have the school re-send your transcript."
Me: "Do you see the social security number on the form?"
Reg. Office:"Yes,[recites number]."
Me: "That's my form. I'm not coming down there to argue with you. I'll gladly talk to your supervisor, though."

...idiots. all of them.
I even went down to the financial aid office just last week to confront a staff member face to face for losing ANOTHER one of my grant forms and when I walked into her office, she was instant messaging three of her friends! Don't these people work?!
...most other students have had these same problems. ask them.

Ya might wanna worry about identy theft. Yer SS# should never be recited over the phone by an organization that insists you're not who you say you are.

I understand your frustration with the beurocracy of a grant application.

Never ever pee on sombody that is in a position between you and your goal. Keep in mind they may be dumber than you. Then think of your goal and tell them how they can help. If you piss them off they will fall back on the system and we all know how effed up a system can get when controlled by dumb people.

Good luck with this
