I obtained my master degree in biology in China.
I worked at a US university as research technician for 3-4 years.
At the same time, I studied my pre-med at a decent university at night time.
I took MCAT too.
The admission bar set for international students is higher than Americans.
Around 170-190 international students out of 1100-1300 international
applicants are accepted every year. (including Canadian students)
Apply as many schools as you can. I think at least 30-40 US medical schools
will accept international students. Do not apply for Texas schools or
California schools, or most State schools, if you have no particular reasons.
As long as you have a good MCAT score(eg. >=35) and a good undergraduate GPA
(eg. >=3.7) from a decent school, international applicants will have some
As long as you do well in interviews and you have enough interviews, you
should be able to get acceptances.
If interested in research, you can apply for MD/PhD too. MD/PhD programs in
good universities are harder to apply than their MD programs. But MD/PhD
programs in mediocre universities are easier to apply than their MD programs.
