Summary of project I along with two other students worked on this project. We had T-shirts made saying "MED SCHOOL" on the front, akin to the Animal House "COLLEGE" shirts, with our med school name on the back. We took orders from faculty and students, and then bought and distributed the shirts. We raised over $600 dollars on the 108 shirts that we sold.

Lessons/suggestions This ended up being more work than expected, but it was good to let people order the sizes that they wanted since we did it last year differently, and a lot of people weren't happy with the sizes that we ended up having.
