    What goes on during orientation week/matriculation

    Advertisements



    For current students: During the week of the 25th what is the process of events. I take it schedules are given out and you are orientated to dorms and the campus but anything else eg. A white coat ceremony like in the us or anything? My parents are coming with to visit family in Europe but are there any events the will participate in during matriculation?

    Technically, it's basically a settling in week. They get your paperwork all signed and your picture taken for your student id, your dorms organized (you have a couple free days, during which you can find an apt and opt out of dorming), drive you to stores to buy electronics, supplies, and other things you might need. There was also supposed to be a day of touring the town, but since my year had dorm issues that made that drag out we didn't do that. Friday there is a white coat ceremony (or was one for my year, at least). You must buy both a lab coat and an anatomy coat and give the former to the dean's office where they'll add the school emblem and give it to you during the ceremony with your index (which is promptly taken away -__-.

    Where would you recommend living... Dorm or APT? What about the books but them here and ship or purchase in poland.

    Moldy would answer that better, i never did either.
    As for books, buy the big ones, with pictures that you want colored (for 1st year that'd be guyton, moore, netter), any that you want to keep small (baby guyton, for one) in the US and just photocopy the rest. I've done the super heavy carry-on thing twice with multiple transfers without problems.
    As for the copied books, I have several from last year I wouldn't mind getting rid of for say 1/2 of what i was charged to get them done. If you're interested I can post up a list.

    Just so you know the ballpark, BRS Embryo cost 17zl to copy, developing human cost 35zl (originally). 40zl is probably the most we've ever paid for a single book. So yes, it's def a good idea to copy the books you don't need in color

    photocopied books (i'm willing to get rid of);
    gross anatomy BRS
    900 anatomy Q's (the book our anatomy profs make you buy)
    embryology BRS
    the developing human (embryo book)
    lippincott's biochem
    Essential Clinical Anatomy (baby moore)

    probably i'd say 75zl (~$25) for the lot?
