Yes BTS exists
The school is not that expensive either...it will cost about $60,000 for the degree program 4 yrs.
Most students are younger, but we have a great older more mature student population which brings the mean age to roughly 26. Its about like any DO school. Many, like myself, were waitlisted at many US schools and instead of re-applying many more times we decided to just get on with it.
I brought my entire family as did some of my better friends at the school. We hang together and do family stuff just like in the states, but we have better parks courtesy of the British Government. I will run for Student Government because I too see the incredible potential of this Medical School and want its reputation to be second to none in the international category.
They have a lot of staff from American Universities coming to see this school and they all LOVE what they see. They like the staff, faculty, and the student population. They see we are bright and could just as easily been US medical students, but because the system is not perfect, we are here. Most of us are happy to be so.
