    NONCOMPETITIVE
    Nonnatural oceans need carbon, oxygen, minerals, plants, etc. The idea though, is very exciting.

    Here's the important part of your post. If you don't get in to Canada, then matriculate in the states, there should be absolutely no question about this, DO NOT give up your USMD acceptances hoping to apply again. Most US schools will screen applicants with previous acceptances and you'll be shutting a lot of doors. And, as you say, the US is a viable route. Now if you get into Canada, usually the advice is that for most people who plan to work in Canada, there is little benefit to USMD over Canadian without US citizenship/green card. It's usually more expensive, and you have to go through the STEP system etc, deal with visas, harder to network/do electives in Canada, etc. You are correct that optho is extremely compeditive on both sides of the border. For sheer numbers the US is better, but you are at a disadvantage for US residency needing a visa. I do not know how much of a disadvantage, and if it cancels out the numbers advantage. In any case even if you gun optho there is a realistic chance that you'll unfortunately not match (or decide to pursue a different specialty), in which case I cannot see an advantage going USMD.
    Realistically, most Canadian MDs do not apply to the US match unless they are dual citizens as you're at a disadvantage for STEPs (doing it on your own time and USMD teaches to the exam unlike Canadian MD) and at a disadvantage needing a visa, although you are a tier above IMG.
    Personally, take the USMD and run if you don't get a Canadian acceptance, and go down the path you describe conflict free. If you get in to either MUN or UdeM stay in Canada, and I personally would even if I was do or die optho. You're correct that you will be somewhat better off for optho having the french programs open to you, and going to MUN doesn't close the door to this, not having a home program is a disadvantage but someone at MUN has ranked optho first for the last 3 years of the match (although carms doesn't say if they were successful or not) so clearly there is some infrastructure. And unless you're gunning plastics or derm really no other advantage to USMD. If you get into both UdeM and MUN then I would go UdeM for the reasons you specified.

    You frame these experiences in terms of CanMEDS competencies. It's not about whether you succeeded or not, rather about your growth and development in terms of these competencies.

    You have no obligation to disclose this. Just apply for jobs and if you get in to medicine then quit. I am sure your employer would be understanding. If not, you don't owe them anything. If you have a job and a company decides they don't need you anymore, they wouldn't hesitate to let you go...

    Feel free to apply now, you don't have to tell them you're applying to medicine, unless you sign a contract, you can quit with notice at any time. People leave for better jobs all the time, you can work during the summer too if you want. If you are not planning to work at all if you get accepted, then maybe hold off until you find out to save yourself the trouble if you have good odds of acceptance.

    Correct zoxy. The Canadian government accepts refugees out of the goodness of its heart, accepting immigrants is a necessity to keep the economy going.

    I wish more folks realized this. The Canadian government doesn't accept more immigrants out of the goodness of its heart. It's mainly to support the government's tax base and to keep the public sector gravy train on its tracks. It's the main reason why there are such strict criteria for immigration. And I say all this as an immigrant myself.

    That is why we have an aggressive immigration policy (temporarily derailed by Covid), to replace the retirees - so there will be more taxpayers. I do not see lower compensation for physicians.
