Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

On BYU's "stalker net", what does it mean when under the Person Status it says Special Exception?

-One who is not special

A: Dear Unspecial person,

Pick your poison. The reason is either:

A. Part of BYU's mission is to separate the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats, the dross from the silver, etc. "Special Exception" means that person has been identified as a "sheep" and receives extra church benefits, such as priority temple parking and front row conference tickets. If you are not labeled "Special Exception," you may assume it is because they have not yet evaluated and categorized you, for the "goats" have a special label of their own. Hope you make sheephood.

Or

B. That "special" someone has taken more than 16 credits in one semester.
