Sorry to derail this a bit, but I had a question for Suzanne:
I am thinking of attending Mahidol University in Bangkok (I'm American) for a bachelors in Premed/Bio Science
Do you think this is comparable to a US degree? I've been in Thailand off and on for 2 years and would love to study more of the language and culture. I know most of the Lecturers in the International Programs are American/Australian/British and they all have at least 1 PhD (Usually several) in a Science related field
My goals are to be able to pass the US Pre-medical Test, but I don't want my applications to be thrown in the trash because they think international schools are a step under the community college around the corner.
