    lol of course CaRMS would want you to rank programs you have 0% chance at, they get more money for every program you apply to. Look at the program descriptions for schools themselves for the more honest answer.

    No, the ones I listed have essentially 1 spot for every 1 person putting them as their 1st rank discipline. How is that hyper competitive?
    plastics, derm, emerg, and optho are "hyper competitive". Everything else is either not competitive or just regular. No need for hyperbole.

    lol ortho is not "hyper competitive" in canada. Look at the stats from last year, it was less competitive than peds, anesthesia, neurology, among others. And just under psych in terms of competitiveness. Middle of the road.

    like all specialities, I assume it goes

    for some reason people tend to falsely equate introverts with socially awkward people. As long as you work well with others being an introvert is totally fine.
    And yes, you can be "extroverted" and be terribly socially. Those people are even worse because they tend to be obnoxious/annoying instead of just awkward.

    honest question, are you just not ever going to work on a saturday during med school/residency? Like if they put you on call that day and no one else can cover, what are you going to do?

    I mean its a computer program, theres no "easy" or 'hard" run since theyre just pressing a button...unless you feel bad for the computer? 
    Reminds of the scene in The Office when Michael Scott asks the accountant (who just told him the michael scott paper company was bankrupt) to "crunch those numbers again". And then he just stares at him and says "its an excel spreadsheet, theres really no calculations im doing..."
