Can I claim my tuition payment on this year's taxes?

I attended my last semester of college in the spring of this previous year and paid about $6k in tuition, some in January and some in February. When I got my 1080-T from my university, though, it said that I could only claim $414 (about one credit's worth) on my taxes for this year. It seems like this is because they billed me for the semester before the end of 2006, and put it on my 1080-T for last year. Since I actually paid them this year, though, can I claim it on this year's taxes? [more inside]

College Tour Packages

Are there companies or agencies that arrange college tours packages for parents and teens. I'd especially like a tour where they separate parents and teens (for part of the tour/info session) and customize the college info for each group.

College Admissions process?

I took a job as director of admissions for a post-high school internship. Prospective interns have to go through an application process to attend. What is concerning is that last year we had approx. 1500 applications started but only 448 made it. We denied approx. 50. The rest either dropped out or never finished their application. This doesn't seem very efficient to me but I'm not sure if I'm even in line with a traditional college. So, if you have ever worked in an Admissions Office for a college: 1. What percentage of those who start an app actually make it? 2. During training what should I teach first? Product knowledge or phone/customer service skills? Thanks for the help!

Worst A Cappella in the USA

I'm writing an article on the proliferation of student-run a cappella groups on college campuses. Unfortunately, quantity does not equal quality. There are several competitions which give awards to the best groups regionally and nationally. But does anyone have opinions on which are some of the worst a cappella groups in the U.S.?
