  1. I had some tough courses in undergrad, and unfortunately came out with some less than stellar grades. It was good enough to get into med school, and I thought those were behind me. I recently learned, though, that several programs in neurology actually request undergraduate transcripts (seems ridiculous to me, but those are the rules). If I apply to a program that requires it, will they potentially share my transcript with other programs at that school (e.g., internal med)? Second but related question: if I apply to residency at the institution where I did my undergrad, will they have acc
  2.

Combined with the fact that my specialty of choice is uncompetitive enough that I'm pretty confident I would get one of my top 4 choices in Canada, so I probably would never even see the results of the US match. The only way I could see it being w
  3.

I'm wondering if it would be worth it to write the USMLE to apply to American schools for residency, but I would only be doing it to potentially train in "desirable" cities (i.e., New York, Boston, places in California, etc.). This would probably only amount to approx. 1
