Bug Description

When a user wants to join another institution at /account/institutions.php the behavior of the required fields are inconsistent with the rest of Mahara.

The optional field is marked with "(optional)", whereas the required field does not have special markings. In other places, the required field's name is red and it has an asterisk. Could this be done here as well or would that mean to refactor the entire drop-down menu so that a "not selected" choice ca be included?
