That was great, now somebody needs to make a US version. Quick side question: is it harder to get into Canadian schools than US schools (one of the backups was apply to US/Caribbean schools)?

From what I understand it is at least as hard to get into Canadian schools as it is to get into US schools. (there are more US schools though)

I think I saw this last year. Still a little funny though. I still think it is weird that you can apply as a sophomore in Canada.

Not really, but most Canadians think it is. See this thread for more.

Yeah, US schools are easier to get into than Canadian ones as far as GPA and MCAT scores go (at least non-top tier US ones). For one thing, they calculate GPA different (only A+ is a 4.0 and A becomes a 3.9). Then, the GPA cut-off is 3.7, but most people that really have a chance to get in have 3.9+. MCAT cutoffs are either 9 across the board or 10 across the board (some have a cutoff for writing: R), and then they couldn't care less, so having a really really good MCAT doesn't make you competitive.

So yeah, a lot of Canadians apply to US schools as back up. Personally, I really like the States and would probably go to most US schools over Canadian ones just because of lifestyle, future, and regional considerations, as well as research opportunities. I am (I think) competitive for Canadian schools so I'm not doing it as back-up.
