    Hello Everybody,

    I'm a sophomore Pre-Med student and I was wondering if I REALLY need the Green Card (I'm Brazilian) in order to be accepted by an American Medical College...I know that University of Miami requires it, but what about the other Schools, other states? If anyone could help me with that, PLEASE let me know! I would appreciate very much...

    Bye!

      As far as I know, NO medical school in the United States will consider your application for admission unless you are a citizen of the US or hold permanent residency status (i.e., have a green card).

      The backdoor method of getting into a US med school MAY BE going through an MD/PhD (or DO/PhD) program, but that depends largely on the school's policies I believe.

          My experience indicates that, as a very general rule, private US med schools will consider international applicants assuming support and their ability to get student visas.

            turtleboard is wrong.

            Most of the private schools will consider international applicants providing you have proof of financial resources.

            I know Tufts and Harvard both had international students. However, you know you have to be the best among the best.

            Good luck.
