    Canadian going to Irish Medical Schools


    I am going into 3rd year of Bachelors of Science at University of Toronto. My GPA right now is in the low 3s but in the next2 years i hope to make it go higher. I have been looking into Irish med schools and called Trinity College Dublin and they told me the GPA cutoff is low 3s, no MCAT and no interview and that each application is assessed individually. That all seems too good to be true. I was wondering if current students could tell me their experiences and how they find the system and if they have any idea if going to US med schools would be a better idea. Do the rotations have to be in Dublin and how were the expenses like? and how are you guys managing them?

    Your best resource for information about all of the Irish schools is Atlantic Bridge: US and Canadian students studying medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine in Ireland. They are the application service for North American students and they are straight shooters, information wise.

    In my opinion, Ireland would be an excellent option for medical school. Trinity-Dublin is a world-class institution.

    However, it will still be an easier transition into practice if you study in the States. Of course, a low-3's GPA will not get the job done for study in the US, so there is some work to do over the next couple of years. Good luck!
