    Hello I am currently in Y10 and live in the UK...

    I have good grades and have a useful and large amount of extra-curricular...
    My dad is a surgeon and i would also like to become a surgeon...This question is not directly about surgeon/medicine Req...

    My dad and i were talking and i seem to really like the idea of studying from uni(undergrad) onward in the US and hopefully practice medicine there one day...

    Lets say My ultimate goal is to go to a top American University such as Harvard University...
    As I'm currently in the UK i will be doing qualification like my GCSE and AS and A-levels...

    What are the international application process for a uni(Harvard) in America...Will i find it more difficult to apply then a American educated opposite?
    What difficulties may i encounter and are GCSE's and AS/A-'levels valid in America...

    Also to enter a top UK University(E.G:Cambridge) it is mostly about grade(A*)---How does the equivalent American system work to go to a top University like Harvard...

    Also,Will i have to start doing anything else in comparison to my peers currently(As of GCSE...) to prepare myself for studying there...

    PS:I WILL MOST LIKELY MOVE TO AMERICA WITH MY FAMILY WHEN I GO TO STUDY THERE AND IT WILL BE MORE PERMANENT RATHER THAN A TEMPORARY EXPERIENCE...

    Any other advice will also be greatly appreciated...I would love to here from people who have undergone this process themselves too!

    Thanks.
