    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.
