Texas university doesnt admit they have anything to do with UHS try finding SOMETHING on their website that has the word "UHS". UHS is a joke and your pretty much stuck with them until you get your degree unfortunately its hard as it is transferring between medical schools in usa, let alone from PAKISTAN to USA!!!

Foreign students have transferred to american medical schools before, but there's certain criteria you have to meet. First of all, you'd need a bachelor's degree, just like all of the medical students there have. Secondly, you'd need to be in the top of your class, with high percentages in all your subjects. Third, you'd only be able to transfer to schools that have had students drop out, leaving spots open for transfer students.

Not impossible, but yeah, highly unlikely.

nothings impossible, you just have a better chance of being the first Pakistani on mars... ok... the moon....

basically you would have to meet all of THEIR initial admission requirements AND be in good standing. So even if you were admitted, you would have to start alllll over again.. (specially since every med school goes on a different system)
