Medical School in India for an NRI or nah?
So I'm a senior in a Texas high school that is ready for my 4-year college career. But I have been hearing from people that it is better to attend college in India with a pre-med background so that I would be a certified medical professional in 4-5 years, as compared to 4 years of college & 4 years of med school & 2-3 years of residency in the U.S (11-12 years). Obviously the better option would def be medical school in India, but my question was that since you have to choose your career path (MBBS) from the 10th grade and have to pass exams to go to college, how would that work out for a 12th grade NRI student that has just completed high school. (I have taken many science courses but am not on any sort of "science or MBBS" pathway, there is not such thing as that in the US)
Also, if I do plan to go to India, my preference is New Delhi, and I've been hearing a lot about AIIMS medical college. Is that the best and do they accept international students or is there something better in New Delhi?
I would REALLY appreciate if someone with some experience could help me out and tell me if it is actually worth it. thanks thanks thanks!
