A 50% student discount brings the price down to $900 for four days or $250 for one. What student can afford that?
There are a great many highly-ranked universities where you can take a semester-long course for less than that. I'm surprised that anyone is willing to pay that amount. We need a few more bubble bursts to weed out this kind of silliness.
I'd also question the wisdom of charging such high rates. The lower the fee, the more people attending, the more people attending, the more people recommending the talks to others. It would be a nice thing to make accessible to a larger number of people. Then again you've got to make a living somehow, and there's always free PM meetings.
