    So I have been accepted into the Jan 2015 term in the Keith B. Taylor Global scholar program at SGU. But i am hesitant because of the stigma on Caribbean schools. Can a graduate from the Caribbean or SGU or anyone with information enlighten me on how tough it was to get residency? and what their experiences are.

    from the charts and graphs it seems like IMG match at around 40% ? How did you arrive at 75 % ?

    if you go to page 15 add up non US and US Citizens total that matched vs the overall # you get close to 70-75%
