    I don't think the referees need to be students you've had via TH. Anyone who would write something nice about you seems to be fine, which is what makes it all so pointless.

    Exactly! Like the guy you shared your cell with in Pentonville. When are people going to realise that, at best, most references are absolutely useless.

    Actually, I seem to remember once showing my disdain by offering Micky Mouse as a referee.
