As an MS4 applying for residency this year, I'm curious to know how disadvantaged we Canadians are in applying. I'm aware that "USFMG's" have very little to worry about as far as residency applications go, but I'm starting to have serious doubts about my application being simply chucked in the trash once "they" find out I'm Canadian. I'm aware that Caribbean grads basically need to demonstrate higher board scores (etc...) than US/Canadian grads, but are Canadians even more screwed than our American counterparts?

Go Leafs.
