Can someone please give me some thoughts on this subject? If I am completely wrong, please tell me! Here in Canada, our med schools give priority to the students who reside in that particular province, for example, here in Newfoundland, my school has 60 seats, 40 for newfoundlanders, and the rest for OOP and international. All the Canadian schools, as far as I know, run admissions on a similar basis. My thoughts then are this: If I cannot get in to my school here, basically, I won't get in anywhere since other schools requirements for OOP applicants are even higher than my school, leaving basicaly only one choice for a medical school, unless I have stellar stats, EC's etc. However, from what I can gather from this site, in the United States, you can apply to every school if you like, and everyone is given the same priority, regardless of your location? Is this correct? This makes me think that it is easier to get into a school if you are from the US? Please share your thoughts... Thanks, Mike.
