Chutzpah Of The Day Award

And the winner is: The University Of Pennsylvania.

Not only do they have the chutzpah to charge $30,000/year (that was almost 10 years ago, who knows what it is now) in tuition, but they also ask you for more money as an alumni. Fair enough, I suppose.

But then to send out a "Draft" version of the donation list - with the message "don't see your name on your list, among all your classmates? It's not too late to give!" - well, that's real chutzpah. It's almost bordering on extortion.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's effective. It just takes guts to ask someone for more money when they haven't even finished paying off their school loans.
