      After looking over both the uscf and fide requirements I would have to commend uscf for being very straight-forward and state that fide seems to be unneccesarily obscure. (but maybe its just me....?_)

    @ sirichardburton, I agree, USCF is more practical. 2000-2100 FIDE is not even expert title, it is extremely difficult to achieve 2000 elo level over the board. At time FIDE standard is ridiculously low, I played an IM with 2000 FIDE rating.

    No it is not obscure. It just not for players of your strength. Silly part is those titles that given for something else than pure playing strength. But they are not that  numerous anyway

    No need for "official" titles. Why should I pay for something like that? Makes no sense to me.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            How much does it cost to get the title?

    My understanding is that the USCF pays the title fees for US affiliated players. Other countries may be different but the FIDE website publishes a list of the fees.

    Ah, for some reason I thought they did.
