Please follow the template below (with details about what your roles were):


You likely should apply to all DO schools that take international students. Be aware they usually require proof of funds as you are ineligible for federal loans.

I agree with Faha’s list.

Western’s Pomona campus can take international students, but their Lebanon, Oregon one does not.

I would also suggest LECOM. It would be best to contact the schools to verify their policy on international applicants.

With my stats and given that I apply early (mid June) do you think I have a chance?

You would have a competitive application for a US citizen or permanent resident. I am not familiar with how DO schools evaluate international students outside the fact that only certain ones consider them.
