    Bambi reacted to keipop in COLLÉGIENS OFFRES MÉDECINE 2021   
    Si ça peut te rassurer, j'ai été dans exactement la même situation que toi (liste d'attente entrevue McGill -> refus, mais acceptation direct en pharm/opto avec exactement la même cote R). So là, avant d'être accepté direct à UdeM, j'avais pensé que j'avais raté mon Casper, mais quand j'ai été accepté direct (pas liste d'attente, rien) dans tous les programmes auxquels j'avais appliqués qui demandaient le Casper, j'étais un peu perplexe ngl. Mais finalement, quand j'ai reçu mes rankings à McGill, turns out c'était mon CV qui était problématique (et un peu ma cote R aussi) et non mon Casper :')
    Donc, take-home message, inquiète-toi pas trop pour ton casper, ça se peut que ça ait bien été et que ce soit plus ton CV qui a moins bien scoré dans leurs yeux!

    Pour nous ce serait en effet plus facile de prendre une décision éclairé en connaissant notre position sur la LA... Mais pour l'université ça doit être plus compliqué, 2 fois plus de formulaire à envoyé et a comptabilisé, plus de paperasse etc...je pense que l'université veux pas se casser la tête alors a la place ils nous refilent le mal de tête 
    P.S. J'ai aussi reçu mon formulaire de choix de campus!  J'ai mit TR comme 1er choix pour maximiser mes chances (même si c'est pas encore clair si c'est vraiment le cas, but better safe than sorry )

    Honnêtement tous les collégiens que je connais mettent Montréal seulement (tous cotes de + de 37 avec pas de refus Laval), alors oui je pense que si vous tolérer aller en Mauricie c’est un avantage dans le processus d’admission.

    If you choose Trois Rivieres as first choice, you maximize your chances of acceptance.

    Bambi reacted to bearded frog in Help Me Decide (USMD vs. Potential Canada MD)   
    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.
