    Finding a Medical school wit my criteria

    Advertisements



    I am in my first year of college. I did VERY poorly in high school.
    My college GPA is at 3.5
    These are the classes I have taken in college that are med related
    Biology 1
    Physics 1

    Can I get transfer to a medical college in Pakistan or somewhere in Asia? I do not want to do the medical here in USA because of the amount of time it takes, not to mention the competitiveness considering the fact that I'm practically out of the game, because I don't have a 4.0 GPA! I am ready to take the SAT if it is necessary, but my high school GPA is extremely poor due to the fact that I was not serious about life up until I got into college.

    Any helps would be nice

    Time wise it's about the same as here, don't forget you need to give yourself two years to write the steps, so it'll come to 6 years plus 2 years = 8 years just like here. I believe the average GPA was not a 4.0 for entrance around a 3.6 and MCAT was a 28. Plus there is the DO option as well. Only advantage of asia over here is the price, but I know in India you have pay a huge 'donation' if you're an NRI, don't know much about pakistan/rest of asia.

    I suggest you stick to USA

    how are you taking college courses if you still haven't taken the SAT? if you're taking those courses in some online university or something then they will probably not be accepted by US colleges/universities for transfer credit and you'll have to retake them again once you've been accepted into a 4 year university.

    Schools

    Re-take the MCAT get your BA/BSc, try MD LCME or DO Programs.......if no luck with that.....then do your MPH/MSc.....then re-apply again......(One extra year)

    Then consider European/Australian/Israeli Medical Schools

    Third option is AUC or SGU......

    Final and LAST option is anything else.....

    Cheers, and Good Luck
