So how much money have you guys spent on this whole application process...pharmCAS fees, supplemental app. fees, transcript fees, processing other documents fees, travel/hotel for interviews, deposits....I paid for everything one step at a time, but today I started totaling everything, and SHEEEESH! I never thought this whole ordeal would be so expensive! :eek:

I think I spent about 325-350 total. I only applied to 2 schools though.

Applying to instate schools really does save you money... I applied to Pacific just like Idesiretosling, but ended up spending 750 (including new suit - I think).

Regardless though - it was the best money I have ever spent...

O ya I forgot about buying the suit, alright I spent another 350 dollars I guess, so 700 total then. damn... I have already used he suit at a couple other functions, so should be useful throughout pharmacy school as long as i don't get too fat and grow out of it horizontally.
Long hours of studying=pizza and trail mix mmmmm I'm actually eating both of those right now studying for physiology test hahaha.

A few more of those one-handed pushups should help. Just remember to switch every now and then so you're not lopsided:laugh: .

So far I'm still under $1K, but that's because I only applied to one out of state school and still have two schools out of four that haven't replied yet.

Probably $1400 including app fees with just three interviews (although I submitted PharmCAS apps to another 4 schools, 2 of which I declined interviews, 1 where I didn't turn in the supplemental, and 1 school that's reviewing my app currently). It's a costly process, but worth it if you get accepted :)

I totally thought that the $500 Albany deposit was outrageous until I heard that Touro requires $2K! ....then I found out that most private schools require around $500 anyway and then it ($500) didn't seem quite as ridiculous. Congratulations on Touro, though! :) I have some friends interviewing there this month.

Pharmcas was a rip off the only school i needed it for was western and they denied me. Didn't buy a new suit just wore some dockers and a dress shirt. I also took the PCAT and registered late. Total $500 + or - $50. Would have been a lot more if I decided to go to hawaii for an interveiw but I decided I was very happy with LLUSP. Plus 500 bones to hold my spot

To update my earlier tally, my last school I was waiting for invited me to an interview!!! But, it's going to cost me about $1000 ($600 flight + $400 hotel), so that'll bring my cost (if I go) to about $2500 :scared: . I have no idea if I should go now :( that's the exact same cost it was for me to go to my other THREE interviews! Geez, I don't know what to do...

Pharmcas: 375
Applications: 350
Acceptance deposit: 500
Plane Ticket: 250
Total: 1475

Maybe another 700 on another deposit because I am still deciding where I want to go. This would bring my total to 2175.

I agree. Although I didn't turn down any acceptance to Pharmacy school, I did turn down interview requests which was hard for me to do.
