Here's a wild calculation of the costs you would/might face:
- flight (return trip): Warsaw 260, Krakow 295, Gdansk 290, Vilnius 170, Helsinki 180, Stockholm 200, New York $770
- hostel (same place as the comrades): 15/night
- visa: 35

- food: 10-15/day ??
So just going for the LAN might cost you somewhere around 150-180 + price for the flight...
Remember that you do need to make up your mind fairly quickly, mainly because of the visa application.
