The Great Dropbox Space Race!

How it works

Earn points by referring your classmates, friends, and professors to Dropbox (they just need to sign in with their school email and install Dropbox if they haven't already), and by getting them to complete the "Get Started guide". As you and your classmates earn more points, everyone from your school registered for Space Race will get more free space. Cosmic.

The Details

Rules
You must register for Space Race with an eligible school email address (if you have an existing Dropbox account you can still join)!
If you've signed up for Dropbox with a non-school email, no problem! You can verify your school account on the Space Race page.
Your school gets 1 point for each person who registers for Space Race and installs Dropbox on their computer (if they haven't already).
Your school gets 2 more points for each person that goes through the Get Started guide (including you!)
Free Space!
Just by signing up, you get 3 GB for two years.
Each level your school achieves means more free space. That means the more classmates and friends you rally to Dropbox, the more space every Space Racer at your school gets, up to 25 GB for two years!
In addition to earning points, you'll still get the normal 500 MB bonus for each referral.
You'll have 8 weeks to get as many people as you can from your school signed up for Space Race!
[...]

P.S. Check out our Terms and Conditions [dropbox.com] for more details on eligibility.


EDIT:
For those who are concerned... What happens if my paid account or promotion expires? [dropbox.com]
If your paid account expires or is downgraded, or the space granted to your account by a promotion expires, all of the files in your Dropbox folder will still be available to you on your computers, phones, and via the Dropbox website. However, Dropbox will only sync the amount of space allotted to your Dropbox account. This means that new files added to your Dropbox will not sync to other computers or be available online until the amount of disk space used in your Dropbox drops below the amount of Dropbox space allotted to your account.

Im curious as to what people are using these new cloud services for?

I've got a Desktop, Laptop, Tablet and Smartphone... Just an easier way to keep all my important files together (without setting up a NAS or keeping my desktop on all the time as a pseudo-nas) Oh and, go Cal!

I am guessing it goes away. Two years is still a pretty long time. Seems to me like dropbox will be doing these deals from now on for large earning events.

Examples:
login to a PRELOADED Dropbox on your Tmobile Samsung Phone and get 50GB free for two years

Free 48GB Additional Dropbox Space for 2 years (Android only, CWM and root explorer methods)

Well, by then I'll hopefully be making some real money, enough to actually buy a Pro acct. Until then, free student space!

You can already add it to an existing account.

There's a link to "log in" on that page. Just log in to your dropbox account first, then use the link in the OP, and it should tell you to supply an edu email address.
