    *most schools, not all.

    Talking to colleagues who went unmatched last year, the advice was pretty generic most senior users of PM101 could provide. "Apply broadly in round 2, lets get you conected with a masters program, next year make sure you also apply to FM/IM too".

    A friend of mine went unmatched last year and most of the advice from the college was "apply to FM". They applied to Rads and although got a good number of interviews...I wonder how friendly more competitive specialty programs (or programs in general) view unmatched students.

    A few years ago I knew someone who asked CaRMS for other kinds of data - gender and ethnicity variability amongst specialties across Canada. They were wondering whether the algorithm somehow helped programs appear to fulfill an unspoken 'variety quota' - a good mix of female:male and/or different ethnicities. CaRMS didn't reply but I wonder.
