    High School Students at AUA

    Advertisements



    I am currently a high school student and was planning to apply to AUA for the 6 year A.S./M.D. program. I was wondering whether this is a good idea and whether or not there are many students right out of high school at AUA?

    If your ultimate goal is to practice in the United States, then it might be a good idea to do your undergraduate studies at a US University. State licensing boards look at IMGs favourably if you have atleast 90 or more credits from a University in the United states. But again that criteria may vary from state to state. The best option would be to check out the state licensure requirements in the state where you wish to practice.

    If you know you want to become a doctor and nothing else. Come to AUA for the program. If you're not set on what you want out of life or what you want to do - don't force yourself to a foreign medical school, chances are you wont last long. But if you want to save time and are committed to it you can be successful after high-school. Just make sure you're ready to be away from home and have to work hard for up to 8 semesters or more. You know yourself better than others. If you're not sure, then don't force yourself. I am a AUA Pre-Med graduate that went directly after highschool, I made it through Basic Science and just passed Step 1. Its not easy, but it is doable with hard work and a strong work ethic!

    Nice job Z. If you get a chance I think Mr. Gelles in the NY office would like to check your availability over the next few months: maybe participate in an Info Seminar? Time allowing of course. No rush.

    Pre-Med is like a really expensive community college, if you finish here, you get an AA just like you would in the states.

    Most people complete their Pre-Med requirements before applying to AUA, and if they got a bad grade in a few classes, they might be placed in a modified Pre-Med program, where you can just complete those classes you did poorly in, pass them, and move into the Med program directly as long as you have a 3.0 GPA.

    On the other hand, some students come to AUA with degrees, or post graduate degrees, but might begin the Pre-Med program from the beginning.

    Since your really young, you should try to get a degree from the states, work hard, and get into a US med school. People usually go to a foreign medical school because they didn't have a chance in the states.
