Match 2016 has started

Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:59 pm

Hi, I applied to a select number of residencies this year.

For some reasons FMGs still apply to so many residencies without reading the criteria, this is so so unwise.

Many residencies in 2016 do not:
Match FMGs
Graduation within 3 years
Will not sponsor visas

After spending Thousands on applying through ERAS FMGs are surprised to have rejections within seconds or minutes of application.

Good Luck

I believe it has to be right, and I want to be in a better place.
