My tuition was 4000, just paid that
My stafford loan came in just in time!
My books came to 525 this semester (but next semester should be my cheapest one yet). Sophomore year my books were almost 800 bucks! I kept them all
Remember gals (and guys) that even though class attendance may not be "required", it should be, atleast in your own minds. Missing classes makes staying on top of things much harder. Text book reading are great, but there is a lot of content in class discussions and lectures that will really drive in the readings. Not saying that you would skip class anyways, im sure you are smarter than that!
Classes for me start a week from today! Cant wait! 9 more months, and I will be a graduate!
Good luck everyone! I hope your first weeks (and those that follow) go smoothly!
