It really depends on how many schools you are applying to. Heres a link to the AADSAS fee chart. https://aadsas.adea.org/aadsas2006/instructions/processing_fee.htm

Also, supplemental fees can be found here:
https://aadsas.adea.org/aadsas2006/supplemental/ins_designations_supp.htm

It might not be the same as next years, but it'll give you a pretty good estimate.

you're looking at about a grand just for aadsas, then an avg of about 50-70 bux a school for secondaries and school fees, then an amazing amount of money for interviews ... oh wait, don't forget the 800 or so for DAT, and if you take a kaplan course, there's another grand.

i've spent thousands and thousands of dollars, i try not to think about it.

the DAT costed me $950, that's because i got really good scores though. the better you do the more they charge you. Kind of like taxes.

wait until you're paying for tuition or even paying the interest on your loans with loaned money, then you can really whine :cool:

I kind of did a quick rough calculation on how much everything cost this year (AADSAS for 12 schools, DAT, supplemental app fees, flights, hotels, some food). It is close to 2500 bucks and I have only interviewed at 4 of the 12. I stayed with people at Case and I'm going to at Pitt. I also did not have to stay the night at UNLV.
