medical schools

<p>can international students apply to medical schools in the united states? any info on this?</p>

<p>They can, but most schools request that these students do AT LEAST one year of undergraduate study in the US or Canada. (If your an international from Canada, its fine).</p>

<p>If you do your undergrad in the states, will it be easier?</p>

<p>Yes, it'll be a lot easier, because the educational system is more uniform. When are you planning on applying to medical school and where are you from? I'm from Canada and will be doing my undergrad in the US next year.</p>

<p>well, I'll be doing my undergrad in US next year too, right now I am in Singapore. I have heard that international students have a hard time getting into medical schools in states. The schools want higher GPA's and MCATs than domestic candidates plus you have to pay full tuition which is astonishing amounts, there is no financial aid.</p>

<p>If you're dead sure about medicine, try Brown PLME: <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Some schools e.g. U of Rochester only let you apply to med school if you went there for undergraduate.
When I was still young I wrote an email to Harvard and JHU asking whether they accepted internationals. They said it is possible but one of them (don't remember which one) specifically said preference is given to American students+Residents.. But then, that was like 5 years ago. Things might've changed.</p>

<p>anyone know anything about the MD/PhD program, and how competitive are they?</p>
