  1. Hmm that is a SUPER confusing chart. I think also - its "prior graduates" which is 2015, 2014, 2013, etc - so that number is inflated. Here's what I see - this is the CaRMS forum. Scroll to the slide 56 - in the 2nd round, 55 of the unmatched found a spot. 39 remained unmatched. Out of those, 10 took an "unknown journey" that no one knows about. The other 28 went into the first round of the 2016 match - out of those, 22 matched. 6 didn't match in the first round. http://www.carms.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/2016-CaRMS-Forum-Data-Deck_FINAL_EN.pdf But I agree - 2nd time around i
  2. Where are those stats? I though it was pretty good. This is what I got from the CaRMS forum: 2013 trying again in 2014: 30/35 matched (86%) 2014 trying again in 2015: 34/41 matched (83%) 2015 trying again in 2016: 22/28 matched (79%) I mean, I would have to back up the second time around because I would want a guaranteed match so I would rank many many family programs as well. But - 79-86% is far from abysmal for unmatched applicants trying again!
  3. The people that took the year off and matched again - these were anesthesia applicants that managed to re-match the following year after going unmatched?
  4. So - I know there are typically 2 strategies to adopt if you go unmatched: 1) find a second round spot or 2) re-do CaRMS the following year with hopes of matching in Round 1 to your specialty. WIth option 2 - some programs are notorious for being accepting of this. For instance, optho gunners can do an extra year of research or masters and then apply again and can have a pretty good shot of matching. But are there programs that are opposite - if you've gone unmatched while applying to them, they will be strongly opposed to you applying again in your second try? For instance - emerg and
  5. Realized late into CaRMS that I want to do anesthesia. I only got exposed to the field in late third year so unfortunately, I had no idea how much I enjoyed it until then. I have managed to get 4-6 weeks pre-CaRMS in anesthesia - mostly community, maybe one academic centre if I can swing it. What are the chances here? I know its semi to moderate competitive with a %75 match rate last year. And I know they accept "late" applicants since they get people change their mind. But I feel HUGELY disadvantaged and am wondering if I should just take the year off and go back next year?
  6. Realized late into CaRMS that I want to do anesthesia. I only got exposed to the field in late third year so unfortunately, I had no idea how much I enjoyed it until then. I have managed to get 4 weeks pre-CaRMS in anesthesia. I'm hoping this means I can get at least one letter from this. What are the chances here? I know its semi to moderate competitive with a %75 match rate last year. And I know they accept "late" applicants since they get people change their mind. What did succesful applicants have for electives? Am I doomed?
