Lets go with individual incomes.

I would guess that my boss makes right around that and she was pregnant at 15. She just got her GED a couple years ago.

"Not having funds to pay for college" would cover lots of people making over 250K. I'm sure many high wage earners are GI Bill recipients who may not have gone to College otherwise. Many more would have gotten some financial aid or grants to cover their college tuition. Most Dr's are high wage earners, and have or had loans to cover as well. My parents saved and helped a bunch with my college education, and I still walked away with loans. I certainly wouldn't consider myself disadvantaged. Of course I didn't have a $250K airplane and $1K of fuel/month like my neighbor and friend did. So I guess I was at a Disadvantage.

There aren't too many people who could just right a check to cover college tuition

Are you looking for factual numbers or a WAG?

Just a guess. Simply your opinion. Use the poll at the top

I would have bet that this one would have gone down in flames but the AB bash is still going strong.

I am still betting that as people start posting drunk it gets took down soon

AB bash still going? I'll have to drop by and maybe add a little fuel to that fire.

I definitely agree. As the even progresses the drunk posting will increase.

Is that $250k per annum? Or for a lifetime? If it's for a lifetime, a lot of disadvantaged people would make way more than that if they lived a long time. I would say it's well over 100%.
