A recent survey of nearly 1,400 fourth-year medical students from 20 schools found that about two-thirds spent $1,000-$5,000 to interview for residency programs. On average, students applied to about 36 programs and went on to be interviewed at one-third of them.

The amount spent did vary by specialty and students tended to spend more when applying to residencies in specialties that were perceived to be hard to obtain. For example, 19.5% of students who applied to surgery residencies reported spending more than $7,000, and yet only 8.6% of all the students surveyed reported spending that much.
