It's in the applicant manual, along with the instructions on how to apply. I don't know if it is expected to increase or not though

their "instruments/books" fee is a bit absurd. i think i spent 500-800 this year and definitely overspent on stuff. you could easily get away with a white coat, stethoscope (150 on sale @ the start of the year) and then find books/online resources that are much better than buying hard copies of everything.

i know next year i will be buying very limited books - probably mostly for clerkship.

every student in our class (minus one, who won a master cardiology) bought the cardiology III. we get a 150+ dollar discount as students @ the bookstore. and the classic II is marked down a lot as well if that's your thing.

the flippable bell.diaphragm thing is handy and some preceptors expect you to have it for certain physical exam maneuvers.
