    That raises an interesting question, does AIS have an Alumni Association or a Booster Club where wealthy graduates make contributions?

    Im not saying they should (as I dont think the schools rely on private financing) but it would be interesting to know if a mechanism like this existed.

    Like Pasag said in his first post, I'm yet to hear an argument that convinces me why they shouldn't have to pay.
    True, there's a difference between changing fields and being paid a fortune after a career just because of who you are.

    Edit: No need for 'but' in this sentence!
