Yes, finding a date for the prom can be a stressful thing for guys and girls, but I'm pretty sure this is NOT the answer . . .

"The Los Angeles Times" is reporting the boys at Corona Del Mar High School in Newport Beach, California created a draft -- like a football draft!

They rank the female students and even sell first-round picks to anyone who wants to cough up the money!

One junior reportedly paid $140 to get a high first rank pick because he wanted to go with a specific girl. Some girls understandably have a problem with this, but as one guy says, "a lot of the girls respect the draft and stick with those dates." Really?

AND IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!

Well,  principal Kathy Scott is finally taking a stand...sort of. She is "discouraging" the boys from continuing this tradition, and sent a letter home asking parents to speak with their kids about how the “prom draft” could be harmful.
