    Graduation could cost you.

    Procrastinating students at one business school are getting a tough lesson in supply and demand.

    Some Indiana University Kelley School of Business students might have to buy tickets to their own graduation Friday.

    A cow named Darcy, who has a habit of causing trouble, busted out of her Colorado pen and made a half-mile trek to the local McDonald?s drive-thru. Her owners joked she wanted to visit former relatives. Eventually, Darcy's family was able to round her up and bring her back home. (Published Wednesday, Apr 25, 2012)

    University officials allowed graduating students to pick up three tickets apiece during the week of April 23rd and distributed those remaining April 30th.

    The Indianapolis Star reported Wednesday some students didn't pick up tickets on time and find them being sold on eBay, Craigslist and elsewhere.

    Shannon Beatty of Fishers is upset the school didn't hold back tickets for those unable to pick them up for free on time. She says other students are offering to sell her tickets for $200 apiece.

    School Dean Daniel Smith has asked students with extra tickets to return them rather than sell them.
