Hi everyone, I just found out a few days ago that I was accepted to USyd off the waitlist, and I am still trying to make a decision on this offer. I am hesitant because I am still hopeful to give UBC (Canada) a shot this year. I won't find out if I have an interview at UBC until late Jan-Feb. So I have a few questions: 1. Is it easy/possible to be granted a deferral from USyd? Have any of you int'l students requested or been granted a deferral? 2. Also I remember reading a thread a while ago about the advantages/disadvantages of being an IMG, in terms of coming back to Canada or US to do residency/practice. I know there have been long discussions on this board about this and how it is slowly becoming easier to come back to practice. I asked my interviewers about this, but they didn't know much about the process. Who should I contact to find out the hard facts and process of this? USyd? UBC? Any help/advice would be much appreciated! I was thinking of flying down there just to see what its like as I've never been to Australia.
