| Feb 19 2008 | I lived alone in high school as an emmancipated minor. I went to a high school college fair. I was talking to someone from another college in a booth next to Amherst's. The Amherst rep chatted me up finding out what I was interested in and what my grades were. Then they asked where my parents were (everyone else's were there of course). When I said I lived alone, and supported myself, and my parents were not available, they turned on their heel and walked a couple of feet away from me and immediately started talking to a parent/student combo. Afterwards they actually ignored me when I asked them a specific, though perhaps not polite, question. High SATs, good recs, good writing ability, good grades.
