    seriously, there's not much you can do from america. I was lucky to have family in Pakiland to go to the different campuses and check out application stuff for me. I had about a 4.5 GPA graduating from high school, was the valedictorian, had passed several AP exams, had leadership positions, was in an honor society, and had a lot of other stuff goin on but when they converted the grades (which you have to get done) it came down to some ridiculously lower 3.something GPA.

    If you go to Aga Khan Med, they expect you to pay the dollar amount tuition up front, mind you there's no financial aid and scholarships there. I ended up picking another med university that was closer to my grandma's.........and I hated it. The youth is so different than how we've been brought up here (quite superficial to say the least). It was hard for me to adjust and make the transition...so I came back, finished my undergrad, and am at SGU med and love it here! Something to keep in mind is that when you come back here to do residency, they want to see US clinical experience, and SGU has that (you do the last 2 years of med school, your clinical years, in hospital centers in the united states).
