Have your college admissions been a NIGHTMARE?

June 20, 2011 12:27 IST

Discourteous staff, hours-long waiting, last-minute cancellations -- was your college admissions experience been less than pleasant?

The board exam results are out and students everywhere are in a flurry trying to secure an entrance into the institution of their choice.

But as we all know, the admissions process can be fraught with running around, stress and last-minute upsets.

Sometimes, it's because we overlook something important and at other times, it's the colleges that are to blame. An inability to handle a flood of admissions forms, students crowding the campus and overworked, short-fused staff members can make the whole admissions process a nightmare!

Have you faced any such trouble when you were getting into college? Tell us all about it -- write in to (subject line: 'My Admissions Nightmare') with your story and we'll publish the best entries right here.

Your privacy is assured -- if you do not want to name the institute or provide your real name, do let us know.
