I think that this could be helpful to those applying soon. How much have you spent on trying to get in? This means everything: MCAT classes, airfare, the new suit, secondaries, anything that you can think of other than undergrad tuition. For me: MCAT prep materials: @$250 AMCAS app: $505 for 13 schools Secondaries: $550 New suit/shoes: $500 MCAT registration: $125? (I think, I took the test in 2000) Airfare/hotel for inteviews: $500 Postage: @$20 TOTAL: $2450 I think that's about it for me. I only went on one out of state interview and did not take an MCAT class. If this catches on, I will try to come back every 5/10 posts and figure an average. Maybe someone a little more stats savvy than me can figure out the standard deviation, etc.
