    Hello, I am an international student. I transferred from China to a university in US. It looks like I can graduate and get a bachelor degree in 2 years. That means the total time that I study in US is 2 years. But I saw some medical school saying that "Successful applicants will have obtained a Bachelor’s degree from a US or Canadian college, or the equivalent, by completing at minimum 3 years of undergraduate or graduate level college coursework." or need 90 credits finished in US. Do you think it is necessary for me to study for one more year for applying for medical schools? My GPA is good enough and I will try to have a nice MCAT score very soon. But I am so confusing now...
    Thank you so much!!

    Also, most of my prerequisites were taken in China, instead of in US. Does it matter?
