SAGE BOOK OF ADVICE
The Class of 2014 hopes this guidebook helps share some of our collective knowledge about what to expect with classes next fall, what books to buy, and where to live. We also want to tell you more about Portland and most weighing, how to survive your first year of medical school (it is possible). We hope that you will find our accumulated wisdom useful. In addition, in the fall you will be assigned a second year student to be your "Big Sib." This person will be another resource to help with your transition into medical school.
