Is there a time in your life quite as expensive as your late teens and early twenties?

Okay, maybe having a baby, but I remember being beyond broke at 19. Between moving out, buying a car, paying for college and textbooks, I was always busted.

And then 85 percent of us get the added 'bonus' of needing our wisdom teeth removed in our late teens/early twenties. I had two trying to pop up sideways; they had to be broken out of my jaw. I still shudder at the thought. It was like Hellraiser in my mouth.

Luckily, local oral surgery practice Hill & Ioppolo has launched the program 'Wisdom for Wisdom,' with the intent of off-setting textbook costs by awarding free wisdom teeth extraction to deserving students.

The application deadline is Monday, April 30th, so make sure to get your application in ASAP. Visit lubbockoralfacialsurgery.com/wisdom for instructions on how to apply.

Good luck to you, and may all your professors assign you used books.
