For Heaven’s sakes and your sanity, comprise a Word document of all addresses of the undergraduate offices of all the schools you are applying to.
I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted looking up each individual school’s address for the admissions office.

I’ve heard that it’s a pretty standard job — call a few alumni, get shitted on for annoying them or bothering to call for more money even after they’ve donated a shit ton. But, the days that you actually get money, are nice. I bet working there is pretty chill. I could never deal with old, white men though.
Update: Here’s a blog post from Bwog on what’s really going on inside the Calling Center.
Grinnell set a floor on the share of every freshman class – 15% – whose parents didn’t go to college.
aka. 15% of every Grinnell class will be first-generation college students.
