So I'm entering the 2012 med class at UQ this January and I can't help but notice certain immigration numbers in and outside the medical school. Why are there so many brits and south africans in Australia? And why so few Americans? I'm currently an American and can't figure out why more don't immigrate down under. Is it an economy thing becuase ours is now crap. When I tell people I am moving there they are suprised and seem to be envious yet I know of only 3 Americans in my med class and according to Wikipedia the US occupies a very small portion of the Brisbane population.
