welcome to grad school. those incidental expenses will kill you. I had to pay 280 for my grad parking pass, so don't feel too cheated.
what are you studying? masters, doctorate, professional degree?

SO FAR:immunizations: $700shipping my crap: $800 from Japan, + about 300 on this end for customs, etc.Student ID card: $20 (don't I HAVE to have one? Why do I have to pay for this?)
student MS Office version: $90 (no complaints there, but still money)and my favorite: Parking sticker: guess how much? nope. more.THREE HUNDRED DOLLARSWhat IS that?I have a vague memory of paying 5 bucks for one as an undergrad. At least grad student passes let you park in faculty/staff spaces, but jeez, are they gonna wash my car every day too?!?
