    International Students going into US residency?

    Advertisements



    Hi. I'm an international (F-1 visa) student taking an undergraduate course in the US and preparing for medical school. I understand that it is near impossible to get in US med schools; so, I'm looking into schools in the Carribeans, in hopes of entering the US for a medical career, before applying for med schools in my home country. SGU would be my first and only goal for now. Here, I would really appreciate some good advice.

    1. How likely is it for international students to be admitted into a "international" med schools like SGU when compared to US(citizen/resident) students?
    2. What is the standard (GPA/MCAT-wise) for non-resident students in these schools?
    3. After graduating schools like SGU, how likely can non-US students get into residency in the US?
    4. Are there any other schools that many international students have successfully entered for MD course and subsequently into a medical career in the US?

    Thanks guys

    Try browsing the forums (especially the What Are my Chances threads) of the schools you are looking into.
