The AAMC data is available for you to view (tables A-3 and A-4) at: 2018 FACTS: Applicants and Matriculants DataHow much of a detriment is it to apply to MD programs as an international student (non-Canadian)? I have a B.S. from the US, I've lived here for almost 6 years now and work in a respected job/company and have no accent. My parents and I have also saved up to pay for tuition without Financial Aid.
I'm well acclimated to the culture and one of the major talking points of my PS is that I'm able to assimilate into different environments due to my background as an expatriate.
In 2018-2019 there were 1195 applicants with legal residence not in the US and 97 matriculants from that group, which comes out to a 8.1% matriculation rate compared to a roughly 40% overall matriculation rate for all applicants. For applicants with residence unknown, 86 of 301 applicants matriculated, for a 28% matriculation rate.
Having a US bachelors degree & English fluency will work in your favor.
