I am a US citizen, who completed her undergraduate degree in the UK in Economics, and am finishing my post-bacc in the US. Help with degree conversion?
I am applying to medical school this spring, for admission to the 2019 intake and need some advice about degree conversion. About me:
1. I am a U.S. citizen but I finished my 4 year undergraduate degree in the UK , where I achieved a 2:1 in Economics. A 2:1 roughly equates to a 3.0-3.4 GPA. As the program was highly specialized, I finished with a Masters of Arts degree.
2. I then finished my MSc in the UK with merit. I did not take any science classes during my undergraduate or post-graduate degrees.
3. I moved back to the U.S. and started a post-bacc program. So far, I have completed Gen Bio (I and II), Gen Chem (I and II), Biochem, Organic Chemistry, Physics I, Physics II and have a 3.95 GPA.
How do I go about submitting my undergraduate and post-graduate transcripts to US medical schools? Will they acknowledge an international qualification and is this a disadvantage?
