    Hi,
    I currently hold an offer to study at the University of Edinburgh for Biological Sciences.
    I am pre-med and plan on coming back to the states for medical school. However, I understand there are issues with applying to medical schools in the US with an international degree. I do have the exception of a 2 year associate degree at a community college in California, as well as both US and EU citizenship. I was born in the US, and I have completed my k-12 here also.
    I can't seem to find any threads with the exceptions I have that might alter my chances of getting into a medical school in the US. If anyone has any experience with this, I would be very appreciative if someone could explain if my situation would either help, or make no difference.
    Thanks!

    This is such a specialised situation. You should contact the medical schools in the USA and discuss their policies with them directly. There are a lot of issues with medical degrees from the UK and going back into the US system. Not sure about earlier in the process.
