Neuroscience: chances for an international medical graduate
I am a final year medical student from a developing country. I would like to ask about my chances of getting accepted in a Neuroscience program in US, and which programs will I have good chances in:
My GRE scores are Q170 and V157.
TOEFL iBT 108
My medical program is 6 years. My cumulative GPA is 4.0. I kept the 1st rank for 5 years.
I have done some Neuroscience research, submitted a paper that is currently being reviewed in a very high impact journal (but this will take 1 year or even more, so actually I don't have any publications)
Presented my research in an international medical student conference, got the best poster presentation award in Neurology.
Travel grant to attend this conference
A research fellowship in Netherlands
Few clinical electives in Europe, the last one was in University College London.
Acceped for 2 more clinical electives in 2013: one in Alabama and the 2nd in Oxford University.
I understand that getting into an Ivy league is extremely competitive. So, I am thinking of Pittsburg, SUNY buffalo, Utah and Vanderbilt. I have no clue if I have any chances even in those
