    So i want to go to medical school and would be applying this october. However i want to study in america but I don’t really understand how it all works.
    Would i do an undergraduate degree over there and apply to medical school after, or do an undergraduate degree here in the uk then try and apply for medical school in america?

    What makes you want to study in America? Where do you want to live long term?

    Without knowing much background I would say study something in the UK with a study abroad year in the USA, that way you would have a chance to experience America without having to commit to many years there.

    US universities tend to be very expensive and securing a visa to stay in the after your studies can be difficult.

    Additionally, the US can be more culturally different than you might imagine, moving continents is a big life decision.

    First question - how would you intend to fund it? A US Medical school will costs between $250 - 350k.
