Reading all these replies is but entertaining and worrisome.
I work in HR at a college and I have a few to add:
-Making a copy of your degree you received at graduation doesn't count as an official transcript
-Yes you do have to fill out tax paperwork if you want to get paid.
-The pretty certificate the hospital gave your parents is not an official birth certificate for use as identification on your Form I9 that is required by every employer in the US
-Neither the passport that expired 4 years ago.
And it's people that hold masters degrees and doctorates that I have to explain this to the most.
