What are the restrictions on international students who apply to DO schools?
Anyone know which schools have been known to accept international students.
I got my BS in cell biology from UNC and will have a masters by the time I start med school.
MCAT =30
GPA= 3.9

You have some nice stats. I'm not sure how your international status will affect you. I know that US MD schools accept many international students so I don't see how US DO schools wouldn't as well. If they do, it should be a breeze for you getting into a DO school.

I am not positive, but I think D.O. schools are more responsive to international students than M.D. schools. You could always call the admissions offices of a few of your top choices and see how they would handle your application. With your stats you will not have a problem getting in.

international students should consider osteopathic degree especially if they plan to practice medicine only in the usa or a very few other countries of choices (such as taiwan.) it is most likely that a caribbean medical school will give anyone with stats similar to yours a better chance to continue his/her medical career either in the home country or any place in this world outside of the usa.
