RE: HT Practical Test

Patsy, maybe that is the way it was at your school, but at mine they gave us
a unique number not related in any way to the SSN. The thing is, now days
with an SSN a person can hijack your entire identity. Not very smart to use
SSN for anything except the absolute necessities.

I know this SS # requirement can be annoying and even threatening, but
it is going to be difficult to change the system which goes way back, to
at least when I was in college, grades were then and still are posted by
SS#'s rather than by name with the idea of protecting a persons
identity.  We all now know that for many purposes our SS# better
identifies us than our name, but old dogs die hard.  NSH/ASCP didn't
just make up this idea of asking for the SS#, they do it because the gov
requires this of them when filing taxes or giving out CEU's.
