Being broke has been an unfortunate reality for many college students, all that is about to change. Last semester there were many days when I woke up hungry and tired. I had to compromise on where and when I could go out to eat. I even considered getting a part-time job just to have enough money to get by. As the semester was nearing an end, there was a point I had to split a McDonald’s Chicken nugget meal with my friend. I could only afford half of a chicken nugget meal, and I can assure you that that was quite a low point of my college career.
However, when I woke up one morning at the end of the semester something particular peaked my interest. I looked to my right I saw a two-hundred-page finance textbook. I had never even opened this book the whole semester except for one reading. This drove me furious as the book cost me $230. To my delight, the bookstore assured me they had the best buyback policy around. At the end of the semester in the same store, they offered me an astounding $4. I could likely buy more ramen with those $4. It is time we break this system and change it. It is time that students stand up for themselves, and we create an alternative to this outdated and corrupt method.
College textbook prices have risen 1077% since 1977. In fact, one of the reasons I chose to work at Omega Notes is because the firm is actively working to reverse this trend. Omega Notes is created by and for students. We allow students, regardless of region or school, to buy and sell class notes. What sets Omega Notes apart from its competitors is a highly student-friendly pricing structure. We don’t ask students to buy a cumbersome bazillion month subscription or charge hidden fees. Students make money every time their notes sell.
Savvy students have made thousands of dollars selling their notes through our site. We want students who take great notes never to have to worry about paying for their textbooks again and at the same time achieve some form of financial independence. Over the last few months, Omega Notes has been working on a new proprietary platform that connects students and faculty members. That’s all I can reveal right now but trust me, you’ll want to stay tuned for this! I encourage you to join us today and stop buying half of a McDonald’s chicken nugget meal.
