I work in Enrollment Services at the University of California. One day a friend showed an application that had been received from a prospective student. After all the standard academic information that is requested on college applications there is a section for noting academic honors. It says, "List Academic Honors Received and Describe Them". Beneath this the applicant had written in a neat hand, "The Bank of America award. Round and in the shape of a ribbon."
