Hi there all I'm a student in the UK starting med school in Oct and interested in the american way of doing things. I know the basic stuff like you have to do another degree before med (unlike the UK), but what I'd like to know is, what are MCATs? And what sort of Grade Point Average is normal (or even what your GPA is?) for wannabe medics? And what is Allopathic medicine? And How much are you expected to pay to go to University?? It's ?1050 max for UK students per year - less than $2000 I think.. Anyway, sorry about going on, but I am interested. Fiona PS By the way, when you're at school and aged 18 (ie last yr), what year are you in? Sophomore? Or is that something else? OK, I'll stop asking questions now!!
