HB weekly smoke sesh, let's get it.

No shit!
Can I pm you some questions?

And about the price of books, try not to buy the books from your campus bookstore. They jack up the price to make a profit off them.

about textbooks, i think its best to find a friend or an acquaintance who has taken the class already. they will generally let em go for far cheaper than what you will find in any used book sale or online because its cash and less of a hassle if you meet up with em. some schools also have facebook networks dedicated to students who want to sell their books to others, which is one of the few services that really cater to students

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

If they change to a later edition don't worry about it, editions aren't the biggest of deals.

What type of courses typically don't use the textbook? It's a given a math course would but a Greek/Roman class probably would use it too right?

You usually save money in this situation because you don't have to pay for the book to get bound. For example, I took a Biology class last year that required a $100 looseleaf book versus the $150 bound book. Yeah, I couldn't sell it back afterwards, but I would have only got like $20 for it hardback, which means I would have been down $130 versus just spending the $100 and getting to keep the looseleaf at the end of the class. And you should be able to sell the looseleaf copy to another student for a couple bucks as well. It's really the way to go if you're given the option.

eBooks are, of course, the best option, but they're never going to become standard given the retarded amount of money that a school book store brings in.

Philosophy rocks. There are no bigass textbook, instead, more of non-fiction books. Spent around $90 for all 7 books so far.

And I gotta rep:

Average when I was applying was 3.5, 1800, 26 to get in. If you have that, with some extra-curricular, you should be good

I don't see the big deal with textbooks. The tuition is where the rip-off is. I mean, it's already $75 to submit an application that takes only 5 minutes to go over.

Its not gona be healthy if you do that. You're gonna have to eat alot of easy mac, ramen, hot pockets, and other microwave food that comes in bulk. You should definitely get the standard meal plan. It really saves you money.

Yah obviously, but he's looking to save money. When I'm saving money, I still wouldn't wanna starve myself. I'd rather eat more shitty food, then be hungry constantly and eat average food.
