you are wrong...an MBBS is an MD equivalent in the the US.

and if you have done nothing to ruin your chances to get into a canadian med school, you should try that 1st...if you then do something (crappy gpa crappy mcat) the foreign schools will still be there.
however, the domiciled bangladesh med schools will most likely be not available to you, since they are very competitive for the spots...only the best and brightest in bangladesh are even able to get the chance to get a spot...unless you have some connection only the private schools will be options for you.
and do you speak bengali? while classes may be in english, the rest of your stay will be a bit difficult if you only speak english.
