I was curious-- did you all buy new or used? Did you also buy all the recommended but not required books? I'm just trying to figure out how much I'll be spending if I get in this fall. I do plan on buying used online to save money.
Also, talk to people a year or 2 ahead of you in the program... they can tell you which books to buy and which ones to just use from the library! I remember in first year we all went and hung out in the Health Sci bookstore, and got advice from 2nd and 3rd year students... I found it really helpful! There were some "required" books that other students said were pointless to buy. I didn't buy any of those right away, and have not regretted it at all! I think I bought one maybe during the year.
Hope this is helpful!! Good luck!

I bought many of my books from
They have much cheaper prices for the most part and the books come very quickly and if you buy 2 or more books there is no shipping!
Hope that helps!
