Ah, the old days of having to mail these in; kids have no idea! Glad you made it out relatively ok!GLLLLLLLLLThe UC application is hellish to fill out and due today; do not wait until the last minute as they have had crashes in past years that have caused issues submitting by the deadline.
What a racket-charge the consumer to do your work. Oh well, Cal & UCLA submitted.
I nearly wrecked my mom's car on the way to drop off my UC application in the mail at LAX on a Sunday (last day for postmarking). At that time (not sure about now), only LAX and SFO had post offices open on Sunday. Anyway, on the freeway, I was going too fast on the transition from the 2 to to 5, it had been raining, and I came around the turn and saw stopped traffic. I locked up the brakes on the Volvo 240, spun 270 degrees and went partially over the embankment off the shoulder. Had to back up, and turn away from oncoming traffic. I went off the next exit (Dodger Stadium) and the only damage to the car was that the front panel on the glove compartment broke it's clips and popped off. No flat tire, no scratches, nothing.
Dropped off the application, going much slower the rest of the way. Application was accepted and I got in to all 3 UCs that I applied to. I've never told my parents about the incident.
Seems like you applied to lots of places; where did you end up enrolling?
