What kind of gpa do you need to get into Caribbean medical school.

Is it still possible to get into AUA with a 3.0 B.A. and no MCAT?? I was told by someone that attended AUA, yes. that was her case too. She is now in her third year doing her clinicals in the states. I am taking my premeds. BIO1 =B, Bio2=C, Genchem1= B, lab A, Genchem2=B, Need organic1/2 and Physics1. I also GOT an A in english, and an A in Stats.
I am thinking about taking medical terminology or A&P 1 or bio chem1 after applying. which would be the most beneficial of the 3?

Do well in your org chem classes and you should be fine. Biochem is a good susbstitute for org II if you can find one. It is more beneficial for med school than org chem. Good luck

FYI - Per AUA's Admissions Committee: Biochem only subsitutes for OChem 2 if the applicant also has a bachelors degree.

Do transfers to AUA need 90 credits of undergraduate work EVEN if they've completed their basic sciences? (Transferring to Clinicals)

I do have a BA and so if I choose to sub Bio-chem1 for o-chem2 - is O-chem1 going to be a good pre-req for biochem1???? Do most schools transfer Biochem one as O-chem2??

Overall how many courses are math affliated in medical school? I am good at math but I hate it. It is so boring I love biology!!!

If you have a passing Step 1 result your application as a transfer into Clinicals would be reviewed first by the Admissions Committee in Antigua who will render an opinion then defer to the Clinical Dean in NYC. Our preference is to only admit transfer students whose academic background fits the same profile as a new incoming student to Basic Sciences. With less than 90 Semester Hours of undergraduate credit you may have licensing issues depending on where you will seek licensure in the US.

The higher the better. Try to get your GPA up a little and you should be fine!
