    My adviser informed me that McMasters accepts Internationals, so wanted to check, what are my chances of getting accepted here with a 3.66 cum, 3.58 Sci and a 31 MCAT.
    Mind you the GPA is calibrated according to AMCAS, I am not sure what application service McMaster uses and how does it work.

    McMaster would use the OMSAS calculation. http://fhs.mcmaster.ca/mdprog/documents/Classof2015.pdf They technically accept internationals but they didn't accept a single international in 2012. Their acceptance rate is also close to 5% which is very low. You would be eligible to apply however, they look only at your VR score and your GPA as well as how you perform on a CASPer. I wouldn't expect much as you aren't a very competitive applicant (even if you were Canadian).

    Update, there is one international (an American) in the Class of 2018. I guess this is proof that internationals are accepted, however the tuition is very high 95k CAD a year.
