alphadogg writes "A sneak peek at the annual Computing Research Association's (CRA) report on computer science enrollments at colleges shows that strong demand for technically-savvy workers is luring students in a big way.

Degrees awarded increased 0.9% and new enrollments rose 13.7%"

    "Sorry, sir, but we just don't feel that you're qualified for this entry-level programming position"
    "But I'm Bill Gates!"
    "Yes, and your application clearly shows that you dropped out of college before obtaining your Bachelor's Degree..."
    "But I'm *Bill Gates*!"
    "Sorry sir, please apply again when you have the required degree..."

Your program is sick! Shoot it and put it out of its memory.
