For international students interested in U.S. professional schools (e.g., medical school, dental school, pharmacy school, and veterinary school), there are some substantial hurdles. Some of these programs do not accept international students at all, while others only accept small numbers. Even when these schools accept international students, they often require prepayment of substantial amounts of money equal to some or all of the tuition.
