Thank you for responding!
I am looking very very far down the road here hehe ...Now I know the reality. Like countless others, I would fight to the death to go to any Canadian med school. And I know it all eventually comes down to abilities and hard work.
But say in one's wildest dreams... for the sake of discussion
I know that McMaster Health Sci is the indisputable #1 undergrad programme for med-bound students in Canada and that Canadian doctors are trained to the same if not higher standards than American doctors. But I do hope to eventually go to a higher-tier med school in the US (Ivy whatnot; expenses, worth, and the actual relevancy of prestige aside for the sake of discussion) for a better chance of residency and employment in the US (Capitalism = $$, almost twice as much as Canadian counterparts after tax I believe?)
From what you said, strictly speaking, it easier to get an AMCAS 4.0 at Western. If I may, I think perhaps the main question here is probably that, would I rather sacrifice a very good shot for Canadian Med school for a slightly better chance at US Ivy?
I am just curious though; since McMaster is known for its inflation (which is a very good thing for Canadian med school), would its inflation be so "well-known" as to hurt your chances at top-tier US med school application?
Also, how often do Canadian med school graduates find good residency in the US (such as JHU)?
