This is much like me saying I'm in the midst of raising $10MM in initial round financing. They might be asking, but they ain't gettin'.
The big thing they're pushing is for the school to be deeded property and mineral rights in alumni wills. They've got $700MM to go to reach that Billion, I expect them to frick it up well before they ever reach $550MM in the endowment.
This is the last thing I am going to say on the matter, but I have no idea where you are getting those numbers. You're like this guy we used to have on OrangePower who claimed everything OSU did was some kind of financial conspiracy (Vodnik was his name). Oklahoma State is in the best financial shape, as a university, it has ever been in. And last I checked, the university has far more than $300 million in fundraising; it's well over $500 million.
But like I said, I'm not going to argue because you obviously don't have a clue.
