6-9k for exam fees, transcripts, translations and notarizations (my final bill is 8k after rescheduling a test once)

2-10k for traveling to test taking locations (depends on where you live)

The process of step taking will take you from a year if you are genious or closer to 3-5 if you are a human with human life, so you need to support yourself somehow, depends on what you gonna do through this time - eat ramen or ride porshe - calculations vary.

Interviews and travelings (here IMGs save quite a bit bc they dont get invited to many interviews haha) so plan accordingly.

Depends on your lifestyle and time management - anywhere from 10-30k and up
