As you know pedigree is impt.
Speaking from a senior perspective, NUS hey days are long gone, and the Dukies are mostly subpar. The strength of Australia and UK med schools is reflected in their grads making it through the rigorous meritocratic selection for residency despite a lack of home ground advantage. Although I would say anecdotally Irish grads are still quite lousy, on par with the Dukies.

DUKE NUS tuition fees are super expensive. I have a feeling that DUKE NUS lecturers are overpaid or the Duke materials are exorbitant. The course should be reviewed before more students borrow money to fund their medical course. However, many medical students from NUS or DUKE NUS do drive BMW/ Mercedes. LOL.

Why is family wealth an impt factor in the equation as u suggest? Residency spots r competitive. I agree tt pedigree is impt - if your parents r well known doctors then you maybe hv an advantage but if they r not in e medical fraternity its not like they can buy a residency spot for u

btw most YLLSOM grads r quite rich too. 70% are RJC ppl anw

looking at the residency match list, there is always more locals than IMG. so unless he provides some evidence, i find it hard to trust him.
