Etiquette Question - Alumni Dinner [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2007, 11:55
Stern is hosting various dinners in different cities, where local alums meet up for dinner with admitted students.

So I'll be heading to one of these, and I'm wondering if there's like four alums and six admitted students or whatever it is, at the end of the night will we all just throw down like ten credit cards or do you think the school somehow picks up the tab or maybe the alums do? Just wondering what to expect.

I would sign up for an anonymous email in yahoo and email the admissions and ask them. I would think the alumni would pay.

Sometimes alumni pay (either from their own alumni club funds or from school funds) and sometimes everyone pays their own. It's typically made clear in the invitations if they expect you to pay or not.

I think you can just offer to pay your share and see what happens. It's a fail-safe strategy.

Get drunk and pass out before it becomes an issue.

Some good advice all around.

Or I could go for a sight-gag and before dinner empty my wallet but just put one penny in it, so then when the check comes I'll be like, "Don't worry everybody, dinners on me." Then I open my wallet and go, "Oh no, you're not going to believe this," and turn it upside down so the single penny falls and bounces on the table. Then people would think I'm really generous even though I don't end up paying.

Yes, but then they'll say that you could go back and wash all the dishes.

HAHA.
