  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

  2. Yes I too am confused by this and I think this is new this year. Would like to know the answer too. Maybe will call OMSAS tomorrow about this situation and will report the findings.

  3. This is literally the worst example. If you watched the Winter Olympics recently you would have heard about this story: https://www.google.ca/amp/s/globalnews.ca/news/4035507/how-a-skier-who-can-hardly-jump-made-it-to-the-olympic-halfpipe/amp/ There is always an alternative way to achieve your goal. I am quite concerned about your ability to demonstrate empathy. Medical school admissions are not black and white. Having been on the interview committees for medical school selection on a few occasions, I can assure you that there is a greater portion of luck involved in the whole p

    Undergrad Program?

    You're right, UofT and Western have a lot of undergrads who end up in medical school. Keep in mind that these are larger schools with programs that draw more "premeds" to them so rather than self-selection (which they say they do not do) these statistics are probably the result of sheer numbers

  5. *Sigh* I wasn't gonna write on this thread cause I thought you were really just a troll... but seeing your reply above it's pretty clear you're actually unaware of how terribly informed, for a lack of a better word that I could use on this forum, your opinion on this matter is. Those students learn real medicine, partake in real clinical situations, have to do the same national tests as every other US MDs, have to fight for the same residency spots (with major handicaps on this regard compared to other students), etc. Let the hospitals taking them in for residency or later as staff worry about

  8. This post frustrates me to no end because it assumes equal opportunities for all students who apply to medical school. You have an immature understanding of the world if you're going to assume that cultural, socioeconomic or health factors shouldn't be taken into consideration when determining an arbitrary level of "excellence". While you're correct in saying that hard work and persistence are important, so is financial stability and wellness. If you have an issue with practising with others who may have taken a different route and can't come to terms with the fact that people have different p

  9. I know this is probably a troll post but personally I would rather see hard working, altruistic, genuine, IMG's land residency in Canada over the handful of narcissistic CMG's with a god complex who probably lack in bedside manner and think the world revolves around them.

  10. ECs count very very little. Research might help a bit but is generally not cared about in non competative settings or just a check box in most competative programs. Elective performance trumps everything. In my experience what mattered was: 1. Work ethic 2. Likeability or how well the person fit into the program 3. Knowledge

  13. I respectfully disagree. This seemingly popular belief of "resident pay is low because staff pay is high" or vice versa is a non sequitur. The pay staff physicians receive is representative of their skill and their contributions to society, and is fairly deserved. It does not retroactively render residency pay irrelevant, since staff pay is payment for work done as staff, not as residents. We have a professional degree which, as you said, is getting harder and harder to attain by the year, and work experience/set of skills that are really quite exclusive, in a field which is essential and
