you seem to have a tight grasp on the topics over here =]
did you apply to dow through the self-finance scheme or open merit?
also i have a pre-med equivalence score of 797/1100. my sat II scores are 660 (bio and chem) and a 670 for physics.
what do you reckon my chances are if i apply to several schools on the self-finance scheme?
thanks!August 16th, 2012, 12:01 AM #23
I'm not too familiar with applying through self-finance scheme, but I am assuming that you will be applying as a foreign student correct? If so, then I would say you have good chance of getting into a school although I can't tell you which ones as I am not too familiar with the merit. You should try asking in another thread here. I'm sure someone will be able to help you more than me.August 16th, 2012, 12:21 AM #24
that was still a helpful reply (in terms of info on Dow) =]
and yes i'll be applying as a foreigner.

It will save me time and a lot of money.August 17th, 2012, 02:29 AM #32August 17th, 2012, 02:40 AM #33
Well it's really competitive in America and requires you to go through undergrad. You also have to have a more broad list of accomplishments and extracurriculur activities.
With that said, it's not a walk in the park for Med students in Pakistan either. For us foreign students though, institutions like DIMC have made it pretty attractive and simple to get admission.

Equivalency related and aptitude test, please help, Dow Medical
Waleed Hi. Your info has really helped me thank you. But I still have a couple of questions.
First, I graduated from a public high school located in Michigan, U.S.A. Took the basic Biology, Chemistry, and physics that they offer, passed all with fine percentage. I also took AP bio, but didn't take the AP exam. The IBCC people said my score is 787/1100. IBCC people say that it has to be Pre-Med equivalent, and they have sent info to my high school for verification and if my high school approves it they will further make sure that it is all accurate as required to be further processed. But since they keep saying Pre Med equivalent wont the high school just deny it? (again its a public high school like any other one in Michigan or U.S.A). This Pre Med equivalent is whats bothering me, can you please clarify. I have just basic bio, basic chemistry, and basic physics that they offer in high school. Will I get an Equivalency certificate?
Also for Dow Medical International regarding the aptitude test. Is it hard? I heard all you need is like a 40%, is that true? So do I even need to study for it and how many questions does it consist of, and what type of questions? Can you put like a practice test maybe of some sort or just some sample questions.
Thank you.September 13th, 2012, 11:23 PM #36
IBCC will only verify that the transcripts and information that you gave them is correct from your high school. They wont be mentioning anything to them about being Pre-Med. You will get your certificate and on the bottom it will say Pre-med Equivalency.
I never took the aptitude test and wont be taking because I also meet DIMC SAT subject test requirements so I can't really tell you anything about it. I did read here on the forums about other students from past years who took it and they said it was really simple and short.

You've got nothing to worry about. The same process applies to all American high school graduates. The IBCC just wants to verify your transcript. I graduated from N.Y.C and I received my certificate in the pre-med category as well. Pre-med equivalent just means that you took bio, chem, physics, English, and math in high school. Hope this helps. Did you take your sat II btw?September 13th, 2012, 11:30 PM #38

So you can either do sat II or the aptitude test?
