For a form consisting of about 100 fields that are divided into 6 categories and none of the fields sets are dependent on previous ones (i.e. not a checkout process or the alike)... When should you create steps instead of using a single page layout? Keep in mind that we want to give the user the freedom of filling the form in any order he/she wants.
Just to clarify, this is a form for which prospective students of high schools and colleges already aproved in selection must fill. A gigantic form with personal data.
