First Impressions (Fall 2004)

Another first day of school, come and gone; perhaps my last for a while, depending on my as of yet unmaterialized post-graduation plans.

Having become intimately acquainted with much of the proceedings, I have come to one rather crucial conclusion: the recruitment process is by far one of the most ridiculous I have ever encountered.
