i'm new to this board as of tonight. i was reading some of the posts people are writing and someone put that they probably had to go to the caribbean for medschool, and they seemed really bummed out. is this such a bad thing? reason i ask is because i was planning on going there from the get-go. i live in upstate NY and the idea of going to school in a tropical setting is exciting. bare in mind, i did LOUSY on my mcats, mediocre GPA, etc. but i havent heard any horror stories about the caribbean, and i was wondering why the caribbean looks lousy to people. anyone?
