    I NEED A MENTOR - Medical school admision

    Advertisements



    Hi There

    I am totally depressed, confuse and lost. I decide to come to America to study medicine. My wife at first agreed but later turn around and said she is not going with the ideal.

    I am in my second year rounding up my pre-requisite for Medical school. Now my problem is funding (Scholarship), admission process, and MCAT drama.

    Finance - I can not afford it and most scholarships don't give an international student from England any chance. I will get a loan but how do i go about it?

    GPA - I have 3.7 and I only have 4 class left to take which i will graduate in June 2019.

    MCAT - I started reading it now but I don't know what to buy and where to go

    School: I seriously looking for a school in the US but if us will not accept me is there any cheap university that I go for < 2500 per semester. This way i can work on my holiday to pay rent and maybe slept in homeless people home or beg or do whatever just to survive.

    I really want to become a doctor and this is killing me that I don't have a mentor or someone. Please, what do you guys advise?

    Well medicine is still very elitist de facto. Even worst in Canada.
    If you don't have the money or parents to pay for you, and no loans, you'll have only 1 option left: make a lot of money and then apply to med school.
    See, it all depends on how bad you want to be physician.

    Are you willing to work hard for a few years and make some $100 000s?
    Most of the people will give up at this point.

    ...oh and not to mention: many med schools ask, as a requirement, a X number of volonteering hours. Amplifying the very elitist aspect of studying medicine.

    Join medical college who offers clinical clerkship in accredited hospitals. With this you can earn some money for rent and other expenses.

    I would say apply to medical schools in the UK and Europe since you are English. Medical school in the US as an international student isn't viable. It is extremely hard to gain admission and then you have to find a way to pay the ridiculous fees.

    The only viable way to get into medical sch ool in the US as an international student without paying exorbitant fees is to apply to md - phd programs which give you a stipend. With your GPA you may be able to get into a program.
