    I mean it's pretty standard for everyone going into the match....? Crush CK, do away electives at places you'd like to match/have a legit shot at matching and get great LORs. Get a pub or 2 if you can. Do everything you can to fill up your ERAS app and at the end of the day...hope it all works out.

    Thanks for the reply...

    I guess I was more so looking for a Canadian perspective on the Match, most of the posts I've seen as from US Citizens.

    As you can expect, it is harder for canadians than USIMGs. The canadians I know in this years match have about half as many interviews as the US kids with about the same paper app. I also think it really depends on your specialty. Surg/EM have been pretty crazy these past few years. Peds/FM i haven't heard much of a difference

    Also bear in mind that the "2016" element of your question may complicate things significantly -- not only for Americans, but certainly for non-citizens of all stripes. Read up on the ACGME and AAMC statements regarding the Match post-2016, plan accordingly, and go from there.
