    Helly my name is Dan and I will be starting School in about a month. I would really like to know what are the things I should bring with me. Also if anyone has the books for the first and second semester I would really like to buy them from you, along with anyother items that I would need in the next year and half. PLease I would like as much advice as possible...On cell phonesm should I bring an I-phone, what carrier should I use, also what books I should bring if any...PLease I new this day was coming but now realizing that I have to leave my family and just go somewhere completely new, its kind of scaring me.

    Don't be a little sissy it'll be okay. All of us did it and it's not that big a deal, especially since all of us are doing it together. Bring your A game. Everything else can be bought off other students.

    I agree with AUCMD2013, if this is what you want to do then you would go anywhere to do it. Come here with an open mind, be able to roll with the punches and most importantly come ready to study and work hard and you will be fine.

    You don't have to be mean. It was scary moving to a new country, where you don't know anyone, you don't know what to expect and you are getting ready to start medical school. None of those things are easy tasks to undertake. Yes, we all managed, but it was with the support of those around us.

    To the OP: Check out the link OlReagan posted and that should answer your questions. As for the purchase of the books, check out the classified section. There will also be a yard sale on campus where upper semesters will be selling things you may want/need. And don't worry, everyone is scared at the beginning. You'll be ok.

    Hey Dan, I'm going to the island in January and feel slightly anxious about it too. I just remind myself that thounsands of previous students have went to this foreign island to study medicine and have become doctors. If they can do it we can succeed too.

    Bring stuff like cloths, latop, sunscreen, mosquito replet, office supplies. There isn't too much you can bring in the two suitcases the airlines allow you. depending on where you live you may want to bring some kitchen stuff like dishes, pots, pans, and glasses. check with you landloard to see if they come with the place.

    It must be cheaper to pay for an additional suitcase rather than the cost of shipping items to the island.
