Hello All,

I am new to this forum and i was wondering if Australian Medical schools give preference for Australian citizens over citizens of other countries?

Also, does anyone know what a competitive U.S. gpa is for admission? I have read the minimum requirements for those who did their bachelors in Aus or NZ but haven't found any info on competitive U.S. gpas,

Hey Jon
Essentially the Unis in Aust have separate quotas for local students and overseas students. For eg for dentistry at sydney there were 80 student places in 2006, and of those 15 were for international students. At a guess I would think that most med schools would have similar percentage breakdowns for their quotas.

Your best bet is to speak with the individual schools as their numbers may change from year to year.

Given there are separate quota for the international mob I would also guess that you guys woud be ranked against each other in terms of the GPA so long as you have satisfied the minimum entry requirements.

good luck - hope it helps
