    Can somebody help me out? I know I saw this sompelace and my memory is shot......

    I saw a list of school items that plebes will need to purchase specific to their major once they have completed first tri. There was a list of items for engine majors and a list for deck majors and it looked like things they needed for class use now that their classes have become more specific to their chosen major.

    My recollection was that these items were available through the NEX and the list I saw had a price for each "kit" (for lack of a better term). Can't recall if I saw it on this forum or the KP website or someplace completely different. Unfortunately I can't recall exactly what it was called so I am having trouble looking it up.

    The reason this came up is because DS emailed today asking me to transfer $$ into his account so he could buy things that sounded exactly like this. He is asking for far less than what I recall these items costing and I want to make sure he's not caught short.

    Anyone?
