I was completing an on-line recommendation for someone to an Ivy
League PhD program today, and on the web form there was the following
question:

"Please check if this letter may not be used by the Office of Graduate
Affairs after the student registers."

The choices were Yes and No (radio buttons).

Yes it may not be used? No it may not be used?

I'm still mystified.

I think you're supposed to predict the future and say Yes if you think the
Office of Graduate Affairs will "use" your letter - for marketing or
personal hygiene, who knows?

OR

Say Yes if you want them to use it after you register.
Say No if you want them to use it before you register.
Close the browser if you want their entire database to explode.

I like that one...makes me want to register...=]

Thanks,
