The college application death march

Over 300 hours of work by people with mad IT, internet and record keeping skillz.

Over $1000 in fees and expenses.

Still.not.done

I don't think any American child whose parents don't have the skills, patience, free time, document storage, money and anal retentiveness required to conquer today's college application process has a hope in hell of getting accepted to a decent school no matter how good their grades are.

Quite a barrrier to higher education we've erected to keep out the bright children of poor, busy and not very tech savvy parents.

When did this fairly easy process turn into some straight out of Brazil?
