the answer to this question is very variable and depends on the university you are applying to.

usually:
1-TOEFL FEE-165$
2-application processing fee,variable(0- 150$)
3-room (500-1200/month)
4-food (variable 250-300$ a month)
5-malpractice insurance (around 200$ a month)
6-courier services, depends on how many colleges you apply to(50-100$),if you get the DHL student express coupon,it will be 800 rs per application. speed post is 500 rs but i would not use it.
7- visa fees( 160$)
8- elective fee (0-3600$)
9- Flight tickets (1000 $)
10.Local transport , airport shuttle(200-250$)
11. local flights, if you have electives at different places (200-500$)
12. vaccine titre( 100 $)

hope this helps and you get the idea. goodluck!

Default ? :)

@maverick doc - thanks for such detailed info. I have a question about malpractice insurance. If the hospital doesn't provide it, how do we go about that? Are there any reliable agencies you could recommend? is there any difference if the insurance is for a student or for a graduate?

I would really appreciate your advice

ok. all you need to do is
1.email this guy peter@academicins.com.
2.tell him you are a medical student in need of malpractice insurance.
3.he will send you an application,fill it and send it online.
4.next he will give you a quotation
5.pay the amout by a demand draft and air mail him the D/D.they do not accept wire transfers(what a pain,!!)
6. he will send you a PDF confirming the malpractice insurance coverage.
7. print it and send with the rest of your application material to the college of your choice

you can request him not to mention the university name in the coverage papers if you are planning on applying to multiple place during the same time.
