Other programs have way lower match/placement rates. We also had a student do well here their first year and apply to med schools in the states and got accepted into a US med school as a transfer. I asked students of Saba, Ross, and AUC and from what I learned saba was the most competitive. That would be interesting. My buddy graduated from a Caribbean med school, and is now a radiologist who just got job offers from Duke and Stanford. Then again, I don't think anybody every truly is. That being said, I'm definitely getting a good schadenfreude feeling from it so I didn't mind the read haha. Ok I used a lot of numbers here.

Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Etc.

Etc. You could SOAP into fam med. It doesn't matter if you're a doctor or an electrician or a housewife raising kids, everyone has something valuable and important to contribute. If you screwed up in school in undergrad, take advantage of the experience and try to use it to learn that humans are not above one another. Saba had always fascinated me and ever since coming to medical school, I knew this was one of the islands I definitely wanted to visit before I left.

If 952 students enter, but each class has an average size of 1300, and only 610 match with another 250sh SOAPing, that's not looking so hot. Student loans? It's dramatic and he's a pretentious douchebag but it's worth a read. Meaning 60% of students matched AT ALL. They're in extremely undesirable locations in undesirable specialties. and etc. If you can pass all 5 semesters and the comp as the end, then you are every bit as ready as any other US student. Reminds me of when someone in my family sobbed at Match day because she "only" matched to a mid-tier University IM program. What made you decide on saba, rather than any of the other Caribbean medical schools? Not a day goes by I don’t wake up wishing I was dumb – that way at least I would deserve being demoted to primary care." Well how do they match? Applied gen surg and didn't match?

US Seniors matching had a 50% match rate INTO THEIR FIRST CHOICE. It's around 80% MATCH RATE for ACGME residencies with another 6% being able to SOAP, which is what Carib MD's apply into, which is obviously way higher than the 50% match rate of IMG's overall and the 30% of students who need to SOAP into a residency resulting in around a 66% placement rate.

Saba has no mercy, and even had a reputation as such amongst other Carib schools from what other students tell me.
