Summary of project This is a traditional fundraiser completed by Albany Medical College each year. We collect books from 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students and then sell them to 1st and 2nd year students. We give the original book owner 80% of the profits, while we take 20%. It is usually a large success and goes relatively well.
