Drop Case Western - no more international students starting 2017/2018 cycle.
Dartmouth likes non-trads.. not sure if you're non-trad enough for them, but give it a shot anyway
GWU gets a ton of apps.. so who knows
Wayne - Some people question their quality and their large class sizes
SLU - requires escrow, FYI.

For case western,
That's just for the university program right? College program and MSTP are unaffected?

I was going to target this school hard, was even going to do a post-bacc in the states just for the linkage here.
11 failed courses and still pursuing med school. http://premedpostfailure.blogspot.ca/

I can speak on Wayne State. Large class sizes are not a problem, in fact it encourages many many different clubs, activities etc. to cater to everyone's needs. We also rotate through 3 level 1 trauma centers all within 20 minutes from the school and never have a problem with too many students on a team.

 

Also training in Detroit is amazing and of very high quality. The diversity of populations and pathology are unmatched and you will come out well trained and ready to tackle most situations if you are eager to learn.

 

The tuition rates however could be better lol.

Thanks so much for your response! Definitely made me more hopeful :) 
Are you able to say which American schools you interviewed at? Or better yet, which ones you were accepted at? I know that applicants often like to keep these facts concealed, so no worries if you've got no comment. 

Best of luck with the Canadian cycle! I'm sure with that MCAT and GPA you'll get some love.
 

I will PM you!

 

Also, regarding your school list, in addition to bearpuppy's comments:

- SLU is currently on probation 

- NYMC (like SLU) require 4-year escrow

Being on probation isn't a big deal, it happens quite often to many schools at accredidation time. They'll fix the "deficiency" and be on the way. 

Many Canadian schools have also been on probation, or very close to.

I know it's not a big deal. Just wanted OP to make an informed decision.

I don't know the status of MSTP.. I assume it would be affected since federal funds have to usually pay for MSTP, so if you're international, a school has to be willing to cover you out of their own pocket. 

I believe you're correct on the College Program.
