Hey everybody. First time poster on this forum- however, I have been on it many times in the past few years! A little history- I live in Vancouver and just got refused by UBC for the third year in a row- I have interviewed there 2 times. This has been the only school I have been applying to, as I'm finishing up my undergrad next year (part-time 4 course semesters for the most part) and I've had tunnel vision on UBC specifically. I'm now sick of not being in medical school and looking to apply abroad in addition to the Canadian medical schools I plan on applying to this upcoming cycle.
I've got a 515 MCAT (127 CARS), 91aGPA, TFR was 66 the past two years (above average interviewee TFR), but have sadly received below average interview scores the past two years.
I was hoping to hear any advice/opinions/general thoughts on the application process (how well my qualifications transfer, additional testing, financial considerations, etc.) and long-term considerations with medical schools in Ireland, the UK, Australia, or the US and how they may compare. I've heard various opinions about US medical schools, especially if I were to seek a surgical residency, for example.
