Hi, just out of curiosity and to help me prepare for the damage applications will have on my wallet, I was wondering for anyone who has applied in the past..

How many schools did you apply to and how much money do you think you spent (approx) on the entire application process (PCATs, Pharmcas, Supp apps, sending out AP scores, flying, etc..)

500 bucks or so, I just applied to schools in California, so it wasnt that bad. And USC offered me an interview and accepted me first. Plus I live Los Angeles area so I did not have to buy a plane ticket or hotel stay. I have friends that spent way more, like close to 3000$.

Including interview travel, hotels, meals, and all of the fees for applying to schools (including pharmcas, transcripts and the like) I spent around $3000. I applied to and interviewed at several schools.

I probably spent $1500-$2000, and I drove to all my interviews (4 of them). I just had to keep telling myself it was worth it.

I spent a total of $35. I only applied to one school and got accepted. It was in my state, so I did not have to travel.
