Don't worry just stay on top of it...i'm sure they received it...why MO by the way...why not a personal check? Just curious..isn't it safer by personal check? If somehow the MO gets lost ur pretty much assed out.....just call and make sure they receive it soon...they might just be waiting till it clears..

I don't think it's gonna get any better then $13-1400...unless u get a 2 bedroom for like $2000 and get a roommate....that would be a good idea...at least u save on parking if u find somewhere close ($400/semester + no gas)

I thought we just file the FAFSA and that's all...do they send us a separate packet for financial aid instructions? If so, I sure haven't received any :confused:

Hey Bmrboy19,

do you know anything about course materials for next year? I thought I remember the admissions staff telling us that we will get a recommended book list??? Also, do we rent or buy our equipment?

Thanks!

Does anyone know what the 2 weeks of orientation at the end of August are like? Will it be full day events every day? Or will it only be a few days within the last 2 weeks of August?

HAHAHA Orientation sucks balls. All day. Every day. Two weeks. BORING as hell. Good luck with that. ;)
No really, you learn about the school and all that but it does drain you.

And you dont need the 300 teeth now, you'll need two halfway through the year and then you wont need any until your summer resto block (what im doing now, and im screwed cuz i have 0 teeth lol, so yes i would suggest get started NOW so you can have a ton of teeth because they dont fill those jars very quickly. and also if you have a lot of teeth everyone will be your best friend because they will be borrowing from you)

oh and to answer other people's questions, they will give you a recommended book list but check it with the upperclassmen who can tell you better what you will actually be using. And you buy your equipment, and its very expensive. =/

Just an update

USC officially ended their interviews as of yesterday. To people who are going to SC welcome; to those who interviewed and still waiting, good luck; To those w no interview, you'll get there, keep up the hard work!!

The class is about 2/3 full.
To the freshman comming in, in august, you don't need 300 teeth right away, the first trimester you need none. the second trimester you use 1 or 2. But its a good idea to get started, but don't stress over it. Don't be like me and collect nothing!!!!

Orientation is a great time to meet people in your class. Get to know as many as people as you can during those 2 weeks, because after that, you will be divided into groups and you'll see less of each other. You will also eventually start meeting upper classman, and you're more than welcome to ask any of us for help or any questions! @ usc, there's a good mentality and people tend to help each other all the time, with very little and no competition.

on a lighter note: This summer you should be reading harrisons internal medicine and try to memorize all the concepts. Also it is a good idea to read two or three pathology books along with a few histology and pharmacology books. You can also get started on preparing for boards part I!!

Anna we do need to find a best friend in our class, although we probably have to buy our friendship one tooth at a time.

i didn't either but i called in and ryan says to log on to the USC homepage. Under "search" type in "transit parking" and depending if you're going to live on campus or not the site will give you specific directions on how to apply.

does everyone know where they're living? are people living away from campus? seansk, or others, do you know if living driving distance away sucks ass in terms of the friends thing? i want ppl to come over for things!
