I have to vent to you guys b/c Im sure you all have been there. LOL I just went to pick up all my books for my first semester of nursing school this morning. I had counted on maybe $200, $250 or so, $300 on the high end. When I got to the desk to check out, it rang up to...get this...$629.34!!!! I swear, I couldnt even hide the shock on my face. Two of my books cost me $165 a piece and my two lab books were $80 a piece. They didnt even have any used books to sell me b/c every one of my classes was using books in the newest edition and they were all new <sigh> Its too late for me to order them used off Amazon
b/c class starts in less than a week, plus shipping would probably be ridiculous anyways. And they are new editions so they wouldnt have used anyways, KWIM? I just cant believe it. Will every semester be like this??? If so, student loan office, here I come!
Thanks for letting me whine a bit. Dh is gonna kill me when he hears this story! YIKES!
