    What do you guys think "Chronological Order" means? I always thought it meant listing things from beginning to end (e.g. 1990 to present) and that "Reverse Chronological Order" would be specified if you were to list things from present to 1990. Well, my boyfriend disagrees and says chronological order can mean either 1990 to present or present to 1990. What do you all think? The reason I ask is because the UC application asks you to list things in chronological order.

    To me it means what you think it means, past to present:

    1999: Ate hay.
    2000: Ate more hay.
    2001: Continued to eat hay.
    2002: Applied to med school.

    (I assume this is what your post-sec experiences look like, as you appear to be a cow!)
