Calabro’s parents were divorced, and she lived with her mother in Oklahoma while her father lived in Tennessee. Calabro had an excellent academic record in high school. During her senior year, her father offered to pay her expenses to attend a distinguished, private university if she received at least $10,000 in financial aid. At the time that Calabro was applying to colleges, she knew that she was eligible to attend the University of Oklahoma and receive a full scholarship, sufficient to pay tuition, room, board, books, and student activity fee. Knowing that her father would be willing to finance her college education at a private college if she received $10,000 in financial aid, Calabro applied to and was accepted at a number of private schools, including Vanderbilt University. In the fall of 1991, Calabro enrolled in Vanderbilt University with her father paying expenses that exceeded her scholarship. During the Christmas break of 1992, however, Calabro’s father informed her that he was no longer willing to pay for her college expenses. At that time he had prepaid her tuition for the spring of 1993 at Vanderbilt. Calabro continued to attend Vanderbilt and completed her course by taking out student loans that became due upon her graduation. Calabro brought an action for promissory estoppel mal77643_ch12.qxd 12/26/08 12:02 PM Page 356 against her father, but the trial court granted a summary judgment in favor of her father. Was this a correct decision by the court?
