New ones, reviews of old ones, changes and thoughts.
So the statement was true. That all PR med schools will require fluency of Spanish. In that, one of the schools indicated that classes COULD be taught in Spanish and the other requires bilingual those are enough to say that if you are not bilingual, you just are not going to survive. It is all or nothing, just one class each semester is taught in Spanish is going to make English speaking only student fail the school.
It is true that quality of US medical schools is better than PR. And, usually admission requirements are high than PR. Although all medical schools are using almost same text book but due to high quality research facility and lab US medical schools are better than PR. If you can get admitted in US medical schools that would be best. Here is a list of top medical schools in us. You may choose any of them.
To listen to a graduate level lecture, you not only have to be fully understood the language, but also you need to know all the technical terms in that lecture. Therefore, there is no room for a non-native Spanish student to attend any med school in PR.

I remember getting an unsolicited brochure and application packet in the mail from Ponce, I remember that name, and maybe one of the other ones... they were recruiting U.S. students on the basis of MCAT scores, I think, because otherwise there is no way those offshore admissions offices could have known I was applying to med school
Any accredited medical school program is probably going to give you the phenq reviews resources you need to prepare yourself, in a sense it is what you make of it and you get out what you put into it, in the form of studying. Self-motivation irrespective of context.
That having been said, I believe that Puerto Rico, being a U.S. territory is a better bet for academics than the Caribbean schools in non-U.S. nations
Very true that one needs to prepare them self. I would also like to add one point in support to your view is if you want to be in competitive market, Porto Ric o is better option.
And yes knowledge of Spanish is mandatory as lectures and other communication uses that language.
