    Any Med School v. Carib?

    Advertisements



    Is going to ANY med school in the US better than going to a carib school.....even if their board passing rate is less than that of the respective carib school?

    Yep. Usually. Or you could end up finishing overseas, like me.

    Yes! Getting a residency is so much easier for American grads.

    It is what it is, man.

    Yeah, I just read of a US school that pays for your board prep program on Step One and Step Two as part of the tuition package.

    i know several US students that fail out. it happens quite often, it seems like each class has 3-4
    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.
