*** Michigan, stop asking my parents for money

<p>why the heck is Michigan asking for donations from my parents when I'm still attending..</p>

<p>Apparently because somebody gives them donations. Is it really that big of a deal?</p>

<p>If you can barely afford to pay tuition, I can imagine that it'd be pretty annoying. You should call them though... there's nothing we can do about it.</p>

<p>My family just laughs!</p>

<p>They don't actually look at your parents and say "I bet they'll donate," they just mass spam. </p>

<p>The reason they mass spam is because it works.</p>

<p>Are your parents alumni or have they donated before?</p>

<p>We get asked to send money to our daughter's current school as well. It's business.</p>

<p>Stanford used to call when my dd attended there. We just laughed. Once she graduated they stopped calling us and started calling her.</p>
