    I'm just curious to get an idea on how much everyone has spent on everything. I know that some people are way into the thousands.

    14 schools, which wasn't too bad in the primary/secondary stages, but 10 interviews thus far, 7 of which are a plane ride away. toss in the suit, a couple car rentals, and it's gotten very steep very quickly.:(

    I guess something to consider is how effective your money is. I suppose if you get in then it's great no matter how much you spent, but DoubleDoctor played the system perfectly. Congrats.
