One thing to factor in those 40K plus alumni at lots of schools includes PT and EMBA's, and I would bet that they tend to not give at the same rate. Personally, I wont donate much beyond my first year pledge until my loans are paid off. I still donate to my undergrad, but I definitely am more satisfied with my Kellogg experience. I just find it hard to justify giving money to a school I am paying what amounts to a mortgage for most people each month towards my student loans. If I wasn't paying $20k a year towards loans I would find it easy to find $200 each fall.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
