    Transfer questions...

    Advertisements



    While I know it is ill-advised to enter a carib school with the hope/intention of transfering into a stateside school since the odds are against you, I do have some questions.....

    I have read on a few other schools forums that there have been successful transfers into the us. Im sure these few individuals had a combination of good performance in med school good gpa/mcat and good step 1 scores.

    My questions are has anyone been able to do it from AUC?

    Is it possible after the 1st year or is it too hard to coordinate cirricula across schools?

    Any success stories out there?

    Just Curious.

    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

    Since I have been in clinicals, I haven't heard of anyone, but when I was on the Island, I knew or heard of at least one person per semester that successfully transfered into the 3rd year after 5th semester. My guess is that it's mostly luck and timing, because most of these people didn't have what I would call "outstanding" grades or USMLE's-- they were above average, yes, but most were not your 4.0/245 type of students.
