Any suggestions ideas anyone? I know for sure we need to bring an external hard drive, maybe a printer, a good laptop lock, and lots of warm clothes for the snowy winter.

don't bring a printer. They're cheap enough here and they're too heavy (you get 2x50lbs on the flight... weight becomes important) to warrant bringing over (plus the plug issue). Make sure all the electronics have ac adapters that go 110-240v or so, as that makes converting them to the local plugs easy (just buy a plug adaptor) vs hunting for new ac transformers that kill your devices half the time.
The one thing I wish i'd have brought was my ihome. They have far fewer ipod accessories here than the states (I was literally told to look for an alarm clock with a doc in Warsaw), so get all that sorted out stateside. Oh, and get your cell unlocked... that way you can just stick a new sim into it and you'll be ready to go.
cosmetics/personal products I'd bring if you have room (more for girls, I guess... unless you're picky about aftershave or somesuch). They have most things here (same brands, etc), but since they're made in diff factories you WILL see a difference in many things. Then again that depends oh how picky you are about those things. Oh, and (again, for girls) nailpolish remover. I don't know why, but the stuff you get at 99c store is like 10x stronger than the stuff here... it's worth it to bring a bottle.
The same principle applies to study supplies and whatever else. A good rule of thumb is to assume you'll find close approximates, but not the exact items you do in the states (though often you will), so if you like a specific item/brand and you can, take it with you.
Thanks El i also recommend the magic jack. I sent one to my mother in law in Moldavia and it works great i can talk to her as much as i want for free. Its well worth the 40 bucks. get one if you can i highly recommend it!

Do we need to bring cadaver tools, and a stethoscope?
So do we need cadaver tools and or a stethoscope?
I was told that gloves, shoe covers, etc we should get once we get here... I'd assume those go along the same lines (unless you have them already, i guess... not sure)
