mine... we're so backwater that we're still using class cards compared to my former school which has a centralized computer system...

ooo...!
Nottingham's pretty terrible. Due to a clerical error they thought I was an International Student, and offered me a full scholarship. Which they then withdrew when I corrected them. T.T
I'm not sure about student paperwork though. *shall be finding out soon*

v I'm trying to mess with the IRS [Inland Revenue Service - a.k.a. The Taxman] at the moment, having left, and now returning to my home country really makes things complicated. On top of that they owe me tax back, and I don't have a permanent address. >.<

I think college paperwork is just a preamble to the paperwork of real life. I'd hate clerical work... which is why I avoided it as early as my college years.

Having connections can be useful sometimes.

ok. all i have to say.
Investment paperwork.
My clients sign more things opening a PAS account then they do to buy or sell a house.
Everything is in triplicate
Everything must be sorted, faxed, copied and sent.
Everything must be origional, but copies must also be kept.
Anything dealing with the SEC or the Financial industry has Military paperwork beat, college paperwork? breeeeeeze.
Try tax paperwork along WITH the investment paperwork... That's my job... :)

I haven't had much experience with paper work but as a more socially inclined country im pretty sure that any terrible paperwork you would find out there you would find here only worse. so as you complain keep in mind that in Canada we have a lot of trees and we don't mind getting rid of some of them.

Actually in my college we don't have to register our classes or courses because it is already done for us and we can't change it

Ugh Inland Revenue is terrible. It takes ages for them to give back the tax that they owe you and it's only when they return it that you realise just how much they took off you. ^^
My friend think Edinburgh is pretty bad for paperwork and etc. Apparently they lost her accomodation application so she had to settle for second choice of halls and when they got her results, Edinburgh mistook her for someone else and she was rejected (ie they didn't confirm her place at uni) even though she had got her grades.
But they later apologised and said that they had a glitch in their filing system or something.
