Hi. This is my 2nd time applying and there is a very good chance I will not get in. I am currently pondering the carribean as an alternative. My primary concern is that even if I manage to do well in terms of both grades and board scores, would the fact I went to a carribean med school keep me out of competitive residencies (like neurosurg. or opthalmology)? Yes, I know about the post bac. alternatives and also the DO route, but for reasons relating to time and so on, I do not feel these routes will be good for me. In the hypothetical event that my grades will be in the top 10 percent of the class, and my board scores will be in the top 5 percent, would I still be rejected from competitive residencies? Thanks a lot.
