Hi guys! I like all of the different ideas the threads about Irish schools have put in my head, and I want to throw one out to see what people think... I read a few comments saying that RCSI is so much more expensive than UCD, Trinity, or UCC. However, the latter three programs are five years vs. the four year program offered at RCSI. If you are in your residency after graduating RCSI and are getting paid during that fifth year rather than at school paying tuition, the total money over five years works out to be approximately even for all schools, but RCSI just gets you back out into the world a little sooner. Any thoughts/criticism about this idea is greatly appreciated! I want to make sure I'm not the only one seeing it this way (like maybe I'm overlooking something that I should know). P.S. Does anybody know exactly how easy/hard it is to get into a residency program in California after attending a school in Ireland??? Thanks.
