Haha, no but they did a pretty good job revising it and coating it up with some brown sugar... I needed it because I am not a very good writer at all.

you should also add hotel and flight costs.

plus, I just spent $800 on two new suits for interviews. This whole process cleans your pockets out.

Whatever is leftover after rent from the pittance I make at Starbucks will go towards new jeans/application funds

Indeed. This will be the first time that I have ever paid interest on a credit card.

I think spending 800 dollars on clothing is ridiculous. And what is the point of getting 2 suits anyways?

I will wear the suit I bought for my graduation (I think it was $150).

haha... well, it was two suits, four shirts, four ties, and shoes all for $800. Men's wearhouse has great deals right now. But the only other suit I have is from freshman year in high school, and I have out grown it. In addition, my graduation is coming up and I also have to attend a few weddings. I figured it would be a good longterm investment.

If you lost weight... then just get it altered. If you beefed up, then you'll have to get a new one.

Hey everyone,
I've been sitting here thinking about how ridiculously expensive the entire application process is. First the DAT, then sending scores, then the primary apps, then the secondary apps, then interviews...
THEN comes one of two school deposits (anywhere from $300 to $1500), graduation fees, graduation party expenses (unless you don't celebrate), background check, travel costs for checking out apartments, immunizations, application and deposit fees for an apartment, moving/relocating expenses, furniture and supplies for your apartment, buying scrubs, buying business casual clothes..........................etc. etc. etc.

so be savin up that dough!
