    You need to take the MCAT if you want to apply to AUC, Ross and SGU. Saba doesn't require it but it seems like they're moving towards that now.

    If you gonna be a nurse anesthetist, I dont think It would be a good financial decision going to med school especially in the caribbean. I heard that a nurse anesthetist can make $150, 000+/year . This is what most primary care physicians make; and most people who go to the caribbean tend to find residencies in primary care. However, If you wanna go to med school in the caribbean, you should try to get into one of the BIG 4 (SGU, AUC, ROSS,SABA). Any other school will be a big risk because these other schools are not on the California list of approved medical schools and a lot of states are adopting that list now,i.e you will be restricted from practicing medicine in all these states (about 13+ of them now). With your experience as a RN, I think you can get into one of the BIG 4, but you will have to take the MCAT and score 25+ on it. Take a MCAT prep class like the Princeton Review and study for at least 3 months then you should be fine ...good luck

    finish your nurse anesthesia MS and do that. It doesn't make sense to accumulate more loans when you will probably be making as much, or if not more as a nurse anethesist. That is crazy how much they make. Primary care physicians really get shafted(salary wise) for the amount of schooling and dedication they put in. You are also 33, you wouldn't be a PCP until you were 40, just finish up your MS IMO.

    What are the two of you talking about? Most primary care docs make a good bit more than $150,000 a year, and most anesthesiologists make significantly more than that! I don't necessary agree with this person going to medical school, but if that's what they want to do, then it's up to them.

    ICU.traveler - If you want to go to any of the decent caribbean schools, you're going to have to take the MCAT, plain and simple. DO NOT go to one of the other schools, just because you're too lazy to meet the requirements for the better caribbean schools. You're already at a disadvantage from the caribbean...no need to make it worse!

    Most primary care docs make a good bit more than $150,000 a year????
    Can you back that up? As for anesthesiologists, I know they make $275,000+/year. However, I dont know if anesthesiology is considered as primary care...

    haha thanks slevit, should I be worried about Dr. B? or is there something I should know?
    Don't think there's a 1st semester teacher with a last name starting with "B" anymore.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national average for FP/GP is $161K with OB/GYN getting $192K (on the high side of primary care). Differs by region, of course.

    Hey all, i have a cGPA of 2.839 and sGPA of 2.7, this is my final semester at my university and im taking 20 credits..I'm doing relatively well this semester, getting mostly A's, A-'s, and perhaps one B..i assume that my gpa will go up and top off at maybe a 3.0 (hopefully)..i plan on taking the mcat in march and will be studying for 3 months in a kaplan course with no other distractions (no classes, job, etc) so i should be able to score pretty well

    also, for this past semester ive been interning with an oncologist and a few other MDs

    the reason for my low gpa can be attributed to my lack of focus, motivation, and direction..i had no idea what i wanted to do until this past semester when i started interning..i've done extensive research and ive determined theres absolutely no chance for me getting into med school in the US right now unless maybe i complete a MS program, but i dont want to waste anymore time

    i plan on applying for fall 2010
