Okay, so I have the option to goto medical school in India. I'm freaked out about that though . The whole change and what not. Speaking of which, I'm in the United States, and I'm indian (go figure, we all want to be doctors). Anyhow, a colleague of my dad, his son went to the 6 year MD program, and is now attending residency, but I don't know where. So, I've been reading all these forums, and it boggles me to see how the students of these forums ATTACK on another because of the school which they attend. It's hard to tell whats fact and whats false. I would really appreciate honest answers .
I currently and a junior in high school, in the United States (New Jersey). I have a 2.4 GPA and a 1200 SAT. I am an EMT, and an active member of the American Red Cross. I have many more extra-curricular activities (I'm sure you got the idea). I really want to get into this school, it seems to be a decent. What do you think my chances would be? Also, I won't be taking financial aid, fyi incase that effects admission decisions. I know most people would tell me to goto undergrad here and then goto med school, but my parents want me to do this so they have the satisfaction of knowing I have provisional acceptance into med school.
Another thing that I'd like to know is how many people participate in NRMP each year, and approximately how many actually match? Thanks to all for your input!
