    International Students

    Advertisements



    I have a friend who is an international student here (in the US). She has just decided that she wants to go to medical school but doesnt have the numbers for a U.S. school. I suggested Caribbean shools to her. Does anyone know if it is more difficult for an international student to get a US residency if they have studied in a caribbean school.

    Is it possible?

    Also, is it more difficult to get loans for education?

    When applying for residency each program will specify with type of visas they sponsor, so she would need to apply for those residencies that would sponsor her needed visa. As long as she doesn't want a competitive residency she should be fine.
    As far as loans I assume that would depend on her home country.

    Yes, it's more difficult, but quite possible. End of story.
