Almost all medschools have attritions and that includes the US schools with excellent test scores. I'm quite sure schools like Harvard, Yale etc have attrition rates as well. By your estimation, should we say your chances of doing well on the steps will represent how well you did on your MCAT, afterall you're down here with us. Look here, stop trying to kill other people dreams, and if someone wants to come to the carib and indebt her/himself in the hope of becoming an MD, let them do that and stop being a doomsday prophetess. We're here because of the combination of bad grades/MCAT score and no other reason, period.
