Hey, looking for some hope as a Canadian student hoping to specialize. From the 2019 "Combined Phase I & II Statistics for Applicants" (https://natmatch.com/dentres/statistics.html) the proportion of Canadian grads that actually match seem incredibly low - almost unrealistically and discouragingly low.
For instance, for the 230 OMS spots available, 2 Canadian grads matched or for the 294 Ped spots, 4 Canadian grads matched. Is there some hidden factor or hidden statistics that I"m unaware of? Seems nearly impossible!
