    to answer you very truthfully... none... not Hungary and not Poland... they both have really terrible worldwide rankings... any university in Canada or the US will be much better than the universities in poland and hungary... so if you can just try to get into a med school in us/Canada or if you know a western European language try to go to that country's med school... just think about it like this, if ppl did really well in their undergrad and knew they could get accepted into a good med school they would not even think about going to hungary/poland ... med schools in the US and Canada know that its super easy to get accepted into and graduate from these programs so to them these programs are not that reliable... I say this to you because I am studying in Budapest and have the same problem... every university I talk to in Canada does not accept my studies... I am studying dentistry and if I want to go back some day to the US or Canada first I must finish at least 4 years of study here, then write 5 exams which almost everybody fails at least 2 3 times and takes a year to finish then if they accept my grades they might give me the chance to start from 3rd year at a university in canada/us... which means i am going to loose a lot of money and time... I wish someone had told me these things before I decided to come here cause even doing another undergrad is far more worth it than coming here and not being able to get out.... while it sounds like a great alternative for ppl who cant get accepted into canadian or us med schools but its not worth it... for in the end it ends up being the harder route... sorry for the gloomy reply just wanted to let you know the reality of coming here
    good luck

    If you can get accepted in the US/Canada, definitely enroll there. Especially the US.

    If you are forced to choose between Poland and Hungary though, go with Poland. I am studying in Poland, and I am having none of the trouble that Xano is having in Budapest. My education is accepted everywhere in America. I will be starting my residency in America soon.

    dtm1114, where do you go to school in Poland.? I am thinking about applying to a few programs: Jag, Warsaw, and Poznan. If you were to choose one of the programs I mentioned, which one would it be? Thanks

    Apply to all three, unless you have outstanding stats and are assured to get in wherever you apply (in which case, you should stay in the US anyway).

    If I were in your shoes (granted, I am not in Poland, but I looked into their programs before going elsewhere in E-EU) I would choose the schools in the precise order you typed them... Jag, Warsaw, and Poznan. All three now have 50-state approval in the US.

    Congrats on matching, dtm1114!

    Would you throw in Silesia/Lodz/Lublin? I am also thinking about PECS in Hungary if they can transfer over some credits. We'll see within a month.

    I personally would not, but that is just me. I have a friend who is tolerating Lublin, but would not recommend it. I have read mixed reviews of Lodz. Like Lublin, Silesia is affiliated with HMI, which is not exactly a feather in their cap.

    There are others who could comment specifically about PECS... but I would steer clear of Hungary at the moment myself, based on the recent political news out of there.

    I go to Jag in Krakow. It's legit.

    Try to go USA first though. International schools should be a backup
