The College Board is going to start selling high school students’ email adresses to colleges so they can email the potential students, rather than the traditional direct mail method. I still remember all the crap I got when I was applying to college and how annoying it was. If I had gotten that all over email at the time I would have flipped out and reported most of them as spam. I’m not sure this is such a smart idea, since many people will probably just get annoyed at the unwanted emails.
