Just a warning for int students who want to go to US med schools

May 4, 2015
I just want to let int.students who want to study medicine in US know that they should be careful choosing majors. When the students do off-campus internships during undergraduate, their majors will be determining factors of whether their school/immigration department will approve CPT(a sort of permit that allows off campus work related to students' major field)

So please, if you plan to be a medical student in US, don't go into majors like English, accounting, business, or any non-science majors. Even engineering can be a hindrance. I just had this problem yesterday and am trying to sort it out.

I know many students will have math/science majors like biology,chemistry,mathematics, etc but in case you don't plan to, be very careful.

You have made 8 topics about "internships" already, just keep it in one thread instead of treating SDN as your diary.
