Cost of filing patent if it fails?

kelpman asked:

I am trying to gauge the cost of failure. Say you file a non-provisional patent and it is not granted. Not including attorney fees, how much would it cost you? I see on the USPTO fee page that the cost for filing a utility patent is $82 for electronic filing; obviously I would have to pay that. I also see a utility search fee of $270 and a utility examination fee of $110. I would have to pay those too, right? Anything else? Thanks.
