Dollar Sign Total expense and other doubts

Hello people!
I am from India, graduated in 2009!
Took a years drop for All India exam but couldn't qualify. It's not that I am using MLE as a replacement of Indian residency but got to know more about MLE recently and have been rather interested.
I would really appreciate if someone could tell me if I'm too old for MLE now and what is the approximate cost of MLE.
Which year's match can I apply for?

what is MLE? The USMLE? You can take that however old you are. If you are willing to move you can get residency whereever.

Default The cost is almost $12,000

Before you get your first salary you have to pay
$800 for step 1 exam
$800 for step 2 CK
$1200 for the CS
$800 for step 3 (if needed for H1B visa)
$2500 in ERAS

So your upfront cost is over $7000!!

This is not counting the expense of your accomodation, logistics, books, travel, ....etc

I think the cost of doing USMLE for an IMG is not less than $12,000
