So i know there are millions of posts about this, but I guess I have a specific question. With the 10 year memoratorium thing, when does that start? And how does one apply for PR?!? I'm Canadian. Let's say I start med school as an international, meet some Aussie surfer babe and get married in 2nd/3rd year and get PR for 3rd or 4th year, will I still have to do this 10 year memoratorium?!? If I get PR in the middle of med school, would I be considered on the same level as Aus citizens in regards to residency spots in Aus?!? I actually graduated from Engineering this past April, would it be better if I moved to Aus to work for a year or two, apply for PR, and then apply to med school once I have PR?!? I really want to do medicine in Australia and hopefully stay there afterwards. However with this whole mess with PR and the 10 year memoratorium thing I'm afraid I might just have to settle for residency in the US. Also, I'm obviously not expecting to go to Aus and marry some girl while in med school, I just used that as an example of what if.
