    Non-MCAT Med Schools in the Caribbean

    Advertisements



    Can anyone please help me identify which of the Caribbean Med Schools that have optional MCAT for admission.

    There is so much information out there to sift through, wondering if anyone had a list already, thanks.

    AUA and Saba also require MCAT. It would be correct to think - if they don't require the MCAT. Don't go there.

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.

    Can I ask why? given that it IS actually one of the MAIN reasons people in the US apply to Caribbean schools.

    Actually the main reason people in the US apply to Caribbean schools (unless they are too immature to know better) is because they were not good enough for US schools. Anyone who uses 1/2 of their brain will exhaust all possibilities in the US before embarking on a destination that is filled with potential "land mines" (i.e. Liscensing problems, problems getting a competetive residency, moving to a foreign country and adjusting to their laws, etc.)

    But as jamesnylon says, if they dont require the MCAT, look at the other ones first. If you don't get in those, re-think your decision.

    Lets say that there are 7500 people that didnt make the 175 spots at the average us med school each year. Sure. many apply at 2 to 10+ schools so cumulative app stats may be slightly inflated.... but I find it hard to think that there are only 175 worthy applicants. Some of these go to sgu. I am glad to have the chance to.

    SGU -requires the MCAT and a fairly good GPA. They have as of four months ago a 1:10 rejection. They are just like the lessor US medical schools now. If you get in SGU - your will be accepted in 50 states and get a bit of hassle about going to an island school. Same applies to Ross & AUC grads. Saba has some issues with over confident folks who tend to be a bit cocky - I like their older students vs the young Canadians they are so fond of. AUA MUA-Nevis and St Matts do a pretty good job if you work hard there. As for the rest well Spartan has been around and has some good grads. So do some other schools coming along. You have to look at the risks. No grads - what are the residencies. Get the picture? Are you a risk taker or a stud muffin?

    saba and mua don't require the MCAT and they are decent schools, especially with residency match. But I advise taking the MCAT - good prep (especially verbal) for the USMLEs
