    Trinity in Dublin

    Advertisements



    IS Trinity in Dublin a good school? I am an american, and am not familiar at all with the schools in the UK nor requirements. I have been shopping for medical schools outside the U.S., and have found some very prospective schools in the Caribbean. How good is Trinity - Dublin Medical school, and do you know how well it compares to other schools in the area/ world? Also, is it difficult to get into Trinity?

    If an american studies at Trinity, is it possible to practice in the States? Does anyone know about the USMLE step exams and attending Trinity?

    Thanks for your help everyone.

    That's a bit like asking if John Hopkins is a good medical school

    I'm British not Irish (so not particularly baised towards ireland) but be assured Trinity and other irish medical schools are first rate.

    Question might be, are you first rate enough for Trinity to want you?

    Talk in numbers. What MCAT and GPA would they like to see?

    I've been checking out Trinity as well on SDN. I believe for you to be competitive you'll need above a 3.1 and mid/upper 20's on the MCAT. I'm hoping to apply thee perhaps this time next year. FYI though its pricey.

    they are all excellnt in ireland. The irish systems typically are 5 years for US students and its quite expensive for foreigners (non-Irish). But they are very good universities.

    I do believe that the Irish system is only expensive for non-EU students

    btw Mel

    I don't know anything bout the entrance req's. for US applicants, but surely the Irish schools need more than a 3.1 and a upper 20's on the MCAT? I would have thought closer to a 3.4 and 30 MCAT?

    its free for the IRish but I believe RCS is establishing a very controversial pay as you play program a la the US that no one there is too happy abotu except those the well-connected who fail to get into the other schools via the leaving cert.
