    Is it hard to get accepted into a big four carrib med school if you previously attended a US medical school, but withdrew? If a carrib med school did accept you, would you be adversly affected in the residency match or do they not care about whether you previously attended a us school or not? I assume the NRMP would have access to info on all students from the aamc or somewhere.

    you should probably post this in one of the "big 4's" forums (sgu, ross, auc, saba being those schools)

    I don't know how it would affect you being in the Match but I do know of people who transferred to Ross from U.S. schools and they all did well in the Match this year. You will definitely have to explain what happened during the course of your training that made you withdraw.

    Previously attended US medical school

    Well I know my previous schoo in the US had a set amount of time you had to post a passing score for the Step 1 and if you did not then they dimiss you. That is what has happened to me even though I had a legitimate reason. So I will ask my question as well since it is somewhat related. Does anyone have any advice for me as I am a medical student who has completed my first two years but have not been able to post a passing score which resulted in my dismissal. Is there anywhere that any of you can suggest I can go where they will give me some/all of the credit for my basic sciences? If not then what else can I do? I do not want to waste any more time so I would appreciate your comments as quickly as possible.

    Post run too

    But really check with the school administration...that is the way to really understand, small schools are usually more flexible.
