    Shipping at Barnes and Noble (Ground UPS)is reasonable. I purchased 5 books today and shipping was $8.25. Even after paying the shipping, I still saved $44.75 over the bookstore prices. Pilot

    Hi-- I'm just wondering-- I'm from out of state (going to OSU-COM as well) and haven't received a book list or anything, just the basic life-support sheets we have to know... Did they send you a booklist via snail-mail or did you have to pick it up at the bookstore? I'm hoping I can just get mine during orientation next week, but if barnes and noble's shipping is over 3-4 days, I may get stuck with that $40+ .....

    No list. There is a section set up for incoming first years at the bookstore. I listed all the books from this section in my previous post. I don't believe that all the books are required, but I don't know which ones are optional. I went ahead and got them all. I'm one of those people who would rather have it and not need it, than need it at 4:00 am one morning and not have it.

    Enjoy moving. We did it in May, and nothing went as planned. I hope you have more success than we did. Pilot

    Homonculus, you wont get stuck with that $40. Remember thats a reimbursable expense.
