    Do you regret selecting the school that you did? Also, do you feel the school that you chose does a good job of helping the students get through?

      My school was the best option for me given that my background was in the Arts and not the Sciences, and I didn’t write the MCAT. Had I written the MCAT I probably would have applied to the Top 3 Caribbean med schools at least (ie. St. Georges, SABA, Ross, etc). I would definitely apply to as many places as you can and then do your research on whichever schools accept you. But really it all comes down to you. If you’re a hard worker, you’ll go just as far as someone from a different or “better” medical school. It really is mostly self study though, you get the info you need in class but there is a decent chunk that doesn’t get covered that is relevant to Step1. For that, most students refer to external resources that are highly beneficial – ie. Kaplan, Pathoma, SketchyMedical, Picmonic, BRS books, DIT, Becker, what have you.
