Well, I stretched the truth a little with my comment above (it would
be hard to get into a master's program without a high school degree,
for example, no matter how money hungry the administrators at the
school may be :), but it is difficult to understand why you are even
posting here if no one can possibly understand what you are dealing
with. Isn't it an immediate consequence that our lack of understanding
implies our inability to help?
