Toady is my first day in this forum and I am very excited because I have been trying for a long time now to collect information about studying Medicine in Ireland. I am an Irish native from Co. Roscommon but have lived in the United States for the majority of my life. I am in the process of earning a B.A. degree in Biology and would love to go to Medicinal School in Ireland for the simple reason that I love the country and I hope to move back and practice over there. I, however, am very concerned about getting in to school over there. I would love to go to school at Trinity or UCD but, as a sophomore in college, I only have a 3.2 GPA. I also don't have much medical experience having only worked in a nursing home as a dietary aide. However, I am starting volunteering at a hospital next semester and I am planning on becoming a Nursing Assistant this summer. Any idea on how hard it will be to get in with this GPA. My school is know for not inflating grades and if it would be hard to get into Med school there with this GPA I would consider transferring, but want this to be my last resort because I have made many great friends at my college. I would appreciate any advise, suggestions, comments etc. and sorry this is so long!!! Thank you!
