    For those of you thinking about clown college as an alternative career, think again.

    ---------------------------------------------
    Here's something else you probably didn't know...AMCAS has also cornered the clown college market. Whether it's med school or clown school, you can't escape the wrath of AMCAS.
    ---------------------------------------------
    "Highlights" from the CICF Supplementary Application

    ESSAYS: You must write an essay that answers all of the following questions, and you must do so using EXACTLY 10,088 characters (including spaces).

    1) Why clown college?

    2) Why CICF?

    3) Have you ever seen a grown man naked?

    4) What's your debit card number?

    5) Are those Bugle Boy jeans?

    6) On a scale of 1-10, what's your
    dog's favorite boy band?

    7) What number am I thinking of?


    All applicants are required to have completed the following courses:

    Biochemistry: 1 year
    Chemistry: 2 years
    Calculus: 2 years
    Music: 1.5 years
    English: 1 quarter

    Advanced Mime: 2.5 years

    In addition, all applicants are expected to be fluent in the following:

    -Mandarin
    -Spanish
    -German
    -Klingon
    -Sanskrit(sp?)
    -Latin
    -Ancient Greek

    The supplementary application fee is $103. We only accept pennies made of steel from 1943; otherwise, you're out of luck!

    (FYI - Pennies were made of steel back then to save copper for the war effort).
    ---------------------------------------------

    I'm not trying to discourage any of you, but it's my obligation to present the facts before you make such a commitment. Good luck everyone!

    Most people don't get that joke. Thought it was appropriate in a clown school thread.

    That's not the half of it. Clown College is nearly impossible to get in to if you're not a Liberal Farts major.

    A lot of people have been worried that the only option for graduates of clown school is residency in either the specialties of 'childrens parties' or 'circus entertainer'.

    However, we are pleased to announce that with the conversion to electronic format there are now plenty of opportunities for clown employment right here at AMCAS. You will start immediately with direct patient/applicant contact. Preferably the less experience you have with admissions the better! There are many sub-specialty openings, such as: Answering a telephone (3 additional years of training), being polite (4 year fellowship), finding transcripts (almost impossible to get into!).

    If your not quite incompetent enough to work for us, then don't worry. You can always work for AACOM instead.

    Good luck!
