Hi! I'm a year 12 student from the UK and I'm looking for some advice! I had previously never considered applying to an American University (because of the cost, mainly), but I'm beginning to really like the sound of the liberal arts style of learning. I'm planning on applying for medicine in the UK and I much prefer the traditional style of learning (with a sort of science/clinical divide), but there are few universities that offer that style (as I understand) in the UK; the American system appeals to me in that respect in that I could gain a firm understanding of the science before graduate medical school.
I know very little about the application process and I have read that the standardised tests have become optional this year (due to COVID-19) for some Ivy League universities, so I'm thinking, maybe I'm not too late to consider applying?
Any advice on whether or not I am too late, financial aid for international students and how the application process works would be greatly appreciated!
