First, I cant describe enough, how happy I am to have found this forum! It feels good when you know you are not alone! & there is so much help! I have a Bachelors degree(Zoology major) and a Masters in Computer Science; both from India. I came to the US not more than 6 years. I looked up for the pre-reqs on a medical school website and decided to go for credential evaluation(which btw sucks coz I have been trying to get all the 'required documents' from India for the past month and still dont have my evaluation!). I think I have covered few of the pre-reqs during my Bachelors hence looking fwd for waivers. I am planning to take rest of the courses at a local Community College. Volunteering at a hospital and shadowing a Doctor are on the list. After a year or so, I intend to start preparing for MCAT. Have I got it right so far? I am sure I am missing something. Is there a thread which lays out steps of how to proceed? Is a high school advisor/counselor the right person to talk to? Or should I visit a state univ? I am not completely aware of the school/college systems here. The title of the post sounds naive; almost lost, I should have had all the info by now, but I agree, I dont. Looking forward for your guidance. TIA.
