    Thanks buddy. 
    I think your academic exploring will help you in times you least expect it. Some of the greatest things I learned were from taking courses that weren’t mandatory for my degree, but were from elective courses that I had a genuine interest in. Though it may feel “foolish” now, your diversity of experiences will probably give you an advantage or opportunity in the future—it just haven’t happened yet. 
    I wish you all the best in your studies.

    The system does not make you "study something you don't want for 4 years" There are so many fields that one can go into, you don't need to be in a certain program to get into medical school. Thus, if one chooses to be miserable for 4 years of their life studying something they don't want to....that's their prerogative.

    Trust me when I say that those with Bs still get into med school
    Otherwise I'd probably still be doing statistics right now.

    Probably not a real post. But on the off chance it is: Dude get a hobby and some life experience. Search for a thread titled "admitted to med school but never kissed a girl". Do you want that to be you? Go outside and stop obsessing over something that literally makes no difference.

    Don't tell me to "come on man." Have you taken a good look through this forum? More specifically the accepted/rejected/interview invite threads? There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of people over the years that have been invited for an interview and admitted and many of them had lower stats than you. There are a sizeable enough portion with GPA's on the lower end who could only hope to be lucky enough to be granted an interview, and some of them do get in. What you keep doing here is nonsensical. For someone who is supposedly so well rounded and academically inclined, you need to get help.

    Ok maybe you'll one day make a thread titled "Admitted to med school but never kissed a guy."
    Go. Outside.

    This is the pinnacle of pre med neuroticism. Go outside and have some fun. Stop thinking about GPA and MCAT for a few hours.

    For what it’s worth I appreciate your no BS approach and calling people out for their clear stupidity and ignorance. OP is the last person who should go to medical school.  Viewing getting your MD as an opportunity to open a business and make over 200k. What a sick joke, people like OP are all that is wrong with this pathetic rat race. And before anyone says it, yes I am bitter.

    I don't try and discourage people and I have never said "anyone's stats suck"...go find anyone of my posts ever. I think its awesome that many people here will encourage people who have any sort of stats to go for this....I am simply saving some people from getting their hopes up....I have been in this process for far too long, and have seen many good people turned away several times. I have seen people who I think would be fantastic MDs get their dreams destroyed...so I provide the other perspective...of what are your true motivations/do you really want this for the right reasons/are you willing to face disappointment multiple times which is a reality etc. I'm glad you won't be replying anymore...no one needed your comment to derail the thread...

    Sickofitall got a reaction from JohnGrisham in USask MD vs. Ireland?   
    All Canadian MD schools are pretty similar but USask is often regarded as the worst if you really want to pay attention to rankings and all that nonsense. And yet it is still 100% no questions asked better than going to Ireland. You can have a decent shot at basically any specialty you want and avoid the entire hassle of being an IMG. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of dollars you would save.  I don't even know why this is a question.

    If people are wanting to take legal action regarding a single medical school rejection, then I think admissions is doing their job correctly in keeping you out.

    Could not have said it better. Writing to a local newspaper? Petitioning the office? Nah people. Not going to work. Universities can do what they want. At best, a current legal challenge is in motion regarding residency positions for CSA's. That actually could potentially result in some changes, as there has been a similar instance of that in the past. But if you're mad that you got rejected by a medical school you just can't do anything. Sorry, nobody cares. That's the harsh truth.  This is the system we live in. Your better than average stats does not give you precedence over someone else. Being entitled will not help you. You can't brute force your way into medicine. The issue, as with a lot of things, is with government funding for residency spots. More funding= more residency and medical school positions=no unmatched grads==no suicide ideation=happiness.

    Just checked my email: Regrets. IP, 84% average, 509 MCAT with a 129 CARS.  NAQ dropped a significant enough amount to make me wonder wtf happened since I applied with the exact same application as I did last year but with a couple other activities and more hours.. Well that's it guys. I'm tried of this arbitrary rat race.  I'm going the Australian route. Good luck to those who get acceptances and for those who didn't, hope you do next cycle. Farewell premed101.

    cheers I'll probably need it, hopefully I will either be able to get a primary care residency (family med or psyc ideally) back in Canada or through the Australian Commonwealth Intern program but who knows. Highly unlikely I'll return home anytime soon based on data from Carms. Canada needs to fix their medical school and residency issues. When students with overall grades in the A- to A range, decent MCAT scores and plenty of good extracurricular activities are rejected for a few cycles straight it really says something is warped with this whole system.
