    Well, first off you have to be fluent in Spanish. Their GPA cutoffs are not high, a 2.5 GPA is their minimum cutoff, I think. Most of the schools highly favor in-"state" students, although University del Caribe takes more out of "state" students than the rest.

    Hi I'm currently studying at Ponce SOM in PR and they take 5-10 out of state students here a year.
    As far as cut off points I would say GPA>3.0 and MCAT >26 would probably get you an interview here. I would try to apply to both Caribe and Ponce, if you get accepted to both pick Ponce it's definitely the better of the two.
    As far as lifestyle goes it can't be beat!
    Laid back people, sunshine 365 days a year, nice beaches. If you speak some Spanish you would like it here.

    Good luck,
    Adam
