I am currently an undergraduate student, my major is in Biotechnology. I study in Puerto Rico, and over here it is a 6 year program. I am interested in studying medicine in Spain (I have also the opportunity to study medicine in the Dominican Republic which is accredited in Spain). I am fully bilingual (English and Spanish), and at an intermediate level in French. My great-grandfather was Spanish, so I guess I could work out the citizenship part, and also being Puerto Rican is a huge help regarding the Spanish citizenship, and my actual one. My current major is accredited in the USA, but I truly want to work/live in Spain. Any help regarding medical school in Spain? Cost? Ease of applying? Would it be better for me to study in the Dominican Republic? It is really easy to get accepted there (DR).

If this helps, I have a 3.60 GPA and 1.5 years of biomedical research.

Any input will be deeply appreciated
