My cousin is a nurse who recently graduated from the University of the Philippines (the most prestigious school in PI). She is now going to move to the US, and has expressed interest in applying to US medical schools, but does not know how to go about it. Apart from taking the MCAT and somehow relaying her undergrad grades to med schools, I didn't really know what else to tell her, since I don't know how much different it is to apply from other countries. I'm an MSII, but I have not met anyone yet who is an international applicant, so I have very little information to offer her. I should say that she is not applying to med school with an international visa. She is a US immigrant who will be moving here permanently (if that makes a difference). I would like to hear from other people who have some advice for her regarding what steps she needs to take in order to apply. I understand how competitive it is (heck, I went through the same grueling process), and how much more it will be for graduates from foreign universities, but I would still appreciate any advice anyone could offer.
