Recommended Posts

About myself:

GPA: 3.92 (just got verified on AMCAS)

MCAT: 36(B13/V10/P13)

EC: I'd rather not comment on it since it's too subjective.


School list:


Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine

Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

George Washington University Sch of Med & Hlth Sci

Georgetown University School of

Medical College of Wisconsin

New York Medical College

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicin

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Scien (on probation????)

Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University

Stanford University School of Medicine (don't judge...)

Tufts University School of Medicine

University of Connecticut School of Medicine

University of Hawaii John A. Burns Sch. of Med.

University of Virginia School of Medicine

Wake Forest School of Medicine of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (no longer accepting Canadians)


I basically first compiled a list from the sticky thread on Canadian-friendly schools (http://www.premed101.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19065), and then I used a MCAT/GPA ranking list (http://medical-schools.findthebest.com/) to spread out my choice evenly among the top 100 schools.


But after reading a few threads here, my concerns are:


1. I'm sure my list is far from "good"/"safe". So please give me some suggestions on adding "safer"/"easier"/"Canadian-friendly" schools. Much much appreciated. Money is not an issue here since I do have some savings.


2. How easier is it really to apply for US schools compared to applying in Ontario? I mean they only take a few international students per year...anyways I'm so depressed right now....


Thank you very much in advance for all the advices and suggestions.

You can get into a USMD school, very competitive application. No need to apply DO unless there is a red flag on your application.


Good shot at Canadian MD schools too.


Wayne state and Oakland should be on your list.


Added Wayne last night already, will add Oakland right now. Thanks for the advice.
