I have finised the BS and i don't want to loose years in studing in a medical school whose system is different like some europian medical schools.

The average accepted American allopathic (MD) med student had a GPA of 3.65 and MCAT of 31. International applicants tend to be held to a higher standard, which you don't meet. Also your verbal score is very low.

Osteopathic (DO) med schools have averages of 3.45 and 25.5, but you are low for them as well. If you are willing to do some GPA repair and retake the MCAT, you could look into this option, as DO physicians do have an unlimited scope of practice in Lebanon. SDN has a PreMed osteopathic Forum wher you can ask questions.

When American students have such low numbers, they often consider applying to the Caribbean med schools. You might look into that route. More information can be found in SDN's International Medicine>Caribbean Forum. Look further down on the forum list to find it.
