    Here in Australia there are a ton of Canadian medical students. Getting into med school in Canada is ridiculously hard, so all the parents who can afford it send their kids to med school in Australia or Ireland. It’s more expensive, but they can transfer that degree back to Canada.

      It seems like Canada is a very friendly place for individuals wanting to do medical school. I met a lot of people who trained there when I lived in New Orleans and it seems like an awesome experience.

        Really!? Haha I’m hearing a completely different story. But I guess it also depends on what medical school you go to. The ones in the Golden Horseshoe are very hard to get into, while ones in Calgary are easier.

          I wonder what the difference is between the two schools are? Is it a difference in the regions or the actual schools?
