Hello

Does anyone know, if there is any chance to match in canada with a MCCEE score of 276 or will they dont even consider my application for an interview?

Hi,

That score is considered quite low, and is barely a pass. The lowest I've heard getting an interview is 295. The only way to get your application seen is to do an elective somewhere where they at least review people who have done electives at their institution.

USMLE scores won't matter in Canada...sounds like you'd have a better shot at the states!!
