My school charges over 3 bucks a tooth, and were responsible on obtaining our teeth ourselves. -_-

Have you tried calling Columbia Dentoform directly? Their phone number is (718) 482-1569.
Yes they wont give a discount unless the school orders it themselves in bulk. Otherwise its 3 dollars and up. Youre probably wondering why the school doesn't just order in bulk for us. Well the answer to this along with the answer to most issues that stems from the faculty is "Welcome to Howard"

Long story short, we were suppose to be given a bag of teeth to practice on. Unfortunately something happened and we never got it, so we had to buy our own teeth to work on with our own money as well as turn in to meet the project deadlines. Then we finally got out bag of teeth at the end of the semester, and our bag of teeth doesnt contain the teeth we need to practice on for our upcoming project. Very complicated and ridiculous i know, but thats what happens when the administration at Howard is the way it is. Nothing gets done no matter how much we complain that its unfair.

My school has all of us buying our own teeth. We'd get a class spreadsheet going at the beginning of every trimester to order in bulk and negotiate for a slight discount. It's an idea you could try.
