  1. ***NOW UPDATED WITH THE 2019 MSAR*** The new MSAR values are given at the top of each school's description with a heading MSAR 2019. Note that this means using MSAR values released on 2019. They're for class entering fall 2018. Hi fellow non-Americans,As noncitizens, we face greater difficulty than Americans - there are schools that flat out reject any international applications, schools that say they accept but never really interview anyone (looking at you, Tufts and Baylor), and schools that are super friendly towards us. Of course, they're all on MSAR, but unless some screams MSAR at you you won't look at it. It took me a while to come up with a list via MSAR, supplanted with wisdoms of **DELETED** and SDN. I'm now writing to share that with you so you won't have to go through same process. Everything here is based on 2017 MSAR, and things can change. So go buy that MSAR and start looking at it!Applying is just one aspect. There's also the financial problem - US MD schools are quite expensive, and we can't get federal financial aid. No FAFSA for us. Probably don't have a cosigner to get private loans, too. So unless you can come up with a brilliant way to fund half a million dollars, your acceptance is going to be rescinded. That's not nice - so something definitely to think about before applying to 40 schools. There are schools that will provide some sort of funding - loans, grants - to non-Americans, but there aren't that many. Keep this in mind before sending your application. Ontarians can take OSAP and loans with co-signer from CIBC, RBC, TD, etc for max $250,000 CDN and ~$40,000 OSAP. No clue about other provinces.Quoting @Goro, International students need to be Harvard/Stanford calibre. While this may be an exaggeration (sorta), do keep in mind that if there is another American candidate that's exact replica of us, he/she will probably get in over us. Higher stats, ECs are expected from us. Sucks, but that's life. Also doesn't help that most of international-friendly schools are clustered near the top.Few quick points: Public schools are less likely to take in internationals than Americans. Go for private. Kentucky loving Canadians is a notable exception to this. Top schools are more likely to take in internationals AND give financial aid. Forget about Texas and California. Schools taking 1 international students are excluded on this list. Quoting @gyngyn, they're likely to be inside candidates. He recommends 3 or above. There are couple schools taking 1-2 internationals on this list, though it's mostly because they've taken more in the past. When it says 'no Aid', its for Canadian/Internationals. Not for Americans. When it says 90hr/1yr/Bachelors required, that's for International students outside of US/Canada. If you're Canadian or internationals student who went to US undergrad, dont need to worry about this. US Permanent Residents = US Citizens DACA = for the most part, international students Thos with CoA ??? = I couldn't find the total cost of attendance. I might've written total tuition costs next to it. Also keep in mind that CoA is just an estimate! Schools providing Financial Aid: These schools are willing to provide some form of financial aid to international/Canadian students, whether in forms of Loans or Grants. Mostly rich schools high up in the ladder.Columbia (Vagelos) MSAR 2019: 3.89/520, 4 International Matriculants (474 app / 31 interviewed) MSAR 2018: 3.87/519, 5 International Matriculants.

West Virginia MSAR 2019: 3.86/509, 3 International Matriculants (317 app / 19 interviewed) Random addition to the international list ***HALL OF SHAME OF BARRICADING INTERNATIONALS GOING FORWARD*** Albert Einstein College of Medicine NOT ACCEPTING CANADIAN/INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS FOR 2019-2020 CYCLE!

Requires 90hr of post-sec Ed on USCAN. Oakland Beaumont***We Hate Internationals But We Love That $weet $econdary Fee!***In other words, applying to these schools is a waste of your precious secondary fee. Baylor East Tennessee USC (Keck) Louisiana, McGovern, Morehouse, NEOMED, Rutgers (both of them), All Texas schools (+Baylor) Brown, Tufts, all PR schools, Arizona, All UCs EXCEPT UCLA, Chicago (Pritzker), Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisville, UNC Chapel Hill, Utah 2019 Analysis: Sadly (or SAD! in American way), three schools dropped out of international-friendly list: NYU, Einstein, and Rosalind Franklin. I heard Einstein might re-open their doors to internationals (like Case did last year), but not sure for the other two. SAD! BUT Meharry and West Virginia joins the list of admitting 3+ internationals/class for this year. Yay! Note on Meharry and Howard: Know that these two are HBCU, or historically black college. 90%+ of their classes are black or African American. If you aren't member of the target group, then your application likely won't be considered. Just something to consider before paying the secondary fee. Harvard, Stanford, Yale, SLU, Loma Lida, and SLU remained as the most international-friendly schools of America for this year. But that rise in Stony Brook is impressive. Wonder what happened? In contrast, the drop in numbers for Boston, UCLA, Virginia and Wayne (although still lots) is disappointing. The discrepancy in # interviews and # acceptance for Stanford, VCU and CMED is confusing. No idea what happened. That's it - good luck with your applicaiton!That's it. MSAR says 71 schools are willing to take International/Canadian applications. After some analysis, the list comes down to 42 for Canadians and 33 for internationals. There are schools that have taken more in the fast - ie. Utah took in 3 internationals 2015-2016. They aren't included in this list as none made it last year with only 5 interviews. Or schools like Duke that took a couple for 2016 but none for 2017. Schools not listed here and listed 'accepts International/Canadian applications' are likely to just shred your application and take your $$ as donations. Chicago (Pritzker) apparently 'used' to be int-friendly. None made it for class matriculating 2016. Your call. Wrote this up while dodging my PI's smoldering gaze at me, so there may be typos here and there. Point them out and I'd be happy to fix them up. Feel free to rip me apart if something's not true, and good luck.
