I've been looking into the details of applying to Poland and it honestly doesn't look like I'll be able to apply.
First of all, all their 4 year medical school programs require pretty much 2 years worth of all the sciences and math, which I don't have.
Second of all, the best school isn't in Warsaw (where my family live), but Krakow which would make any family help impossible. Also they require the MCAT.
Thirdly, I'd need to take an entrance exam in biology and chemistry.
There is also the option of doing a 6 year degree, with the first two years being just the sciences, however that is reserved for students straight out of high school AND they also require IB Biology (which I have) and IB Chemistry (which I don't). Plus I'd be starting the program with a bunch of 17 & 18 year olds and I don't know if I could handle being a full 12 years older than everyone.
Sigh, its just NOT a good alternative for a non-trad like me. And it sucks 'cause I really hoped it would be a good alternative.
It really looks like its Mac or bust for me now...
