    Not if you're a high school student, unless you just graduated and are entering higher education in the fall.

    K-12 includes high school, so yes you qualify. Well, if you're an employee there.

    Yeah. The way they worded the message you attached is a little confusing, but the terms and conditions don't leave much doubt.

    If you have been accepted by a college then you can get the offer.

    The discount is weird. I got my MBP in store and got the student discount. I had no proof that I was going to college and didn't even mention the discount. The salesmen just gave me the discount.

    Even when I was online and I was about to order one, nowhere did it make me provide proof of enrollment or anything like that.

    That works as long as the institute you are attending provides a student ID

    They would check with the school, not the buyer so they wouldn't know unless they got turned down for the discount.

    From your original question it sounds like you're a high school, which means you don't qualify for the discount. Therefore, all these extras queries are just you wondering you can circumvent the requirement. Mac Rumors doesn't condone this type of discussion.

    I called in and gave them all my information. The gal asked if I was in school, I said no, but was considering going back. She gave me the school special...free printer and iPod Touch. I don't think it's really that big of a deal. It pretty much sounded like from what she said, Apple will give these discounts to anybody whether or not one is in school, it doesn't matter.
