Salam,
In order to get to a good med school you need a good grad and your MCAT score should be high. Some school are quite competitive than others. My advise if you ever get a chance to read this feedback is to have some extra activities in your resume. For example volunteer in your local hospital or your community.I f you cant get in into one of the schools in USA, you could always have a chance to apply to American school in Caribbean. I heard they are less competitive and usually for people  who couldn't make it into US medical school in USA. Best of luck from: Moroccan in USA.

Dear peer, it's really easier, than you think. Previous responses are reasonable on the matter of advising you some good colleges. I'd like to point out the admission process: American colleges approve of applicants' efforts and abilities. I've got many friends from medical universities, so I know what it's all about. You will have little time and many sources to research and study for your PhD grade. My friends recommend help of professional PhD consultants http://phdify.com/ - you would find it useful for your future grade. Never give up and aspire for the best while your studies! Wish you lots of luck and great time of studies!
