A = number of Canadians who applied to US

B = " " " " were not accepted by US schools

C = number of Canadians who also applied to Canadian schools and were accepted

D = A - B - C

D = A - B - C

I think he meant students in Canadian medical schools, not Canadian students in American medical schools.

So, my formula won't help then. and I was just trying to be helpful.

B = no. of graduates who died before going south

E = C - D? If so, perhaps, this is more helpful. Math and stats are not my best subjects.

Thanks for the answer a41, only just noticed it:p , I wasted my time with my formulae as you had the answer in plain sight (with the white dots) all the time.

A = number of Canadians who applied to US

B = " " " " were not accepted by US schools

C = number of Canadians who also applied to Canadian schools and were accepted

D = A - B - C

Lets say 100 Canadians applied to the US (A = 100).

Of which all 100 were accepted (B = 100)

And then number of Canadians who applied to Canadian schools and were accepted was just 1 (C = 1)

D = A - B - C

D = 100 - 100 - 1

D = -1

Therefore according to you, we have 1 American student that applied and got into our Canadian med school. >_>

Mea culpa:( and I shall go to the penalty box. This is no excuse, my formula is no good, but we all know that the correct answer is 17 from a prior post.

I will try to refrain from further formulae. And, it would seem, another thread hijacked.

I think the original question could be rephrased to "how many Canadian MDs end up in the states for residency?"
