What do you like most about this school?

"Looking back, I enjoyed a few things while on the island: the isolation from typical hometown/university town distractions, and the close knit student community. I felt bad for those around me that didn't have the courage to leave their comfort zone and interact with new people or join clubs/organizations (I was one of them for a while, though I did get more studying done at the time). Off the island, during my clinical blocks, it was beneficial to experience many different hospital systems and clinical styles in varying locales. Some of the students around me couldn't handle the lack of omnipotent control over their schedules, though I found that the students who had connections (not me) or those few students with all of their t's crossed and i's dotted (again, not me) were pretty much able to go where they wanted. I tended to go with the flow." | Report Response

What do you like least about this school?

"It's important to know that a handful of states have additional requirements that need to be met before they accept international students for a residency spot. California being one... Near the end of my clinicals there was a weird situation that occurred with a hospital that I rotated through where it may or may not have been acceptable for California residencies. This whole thing was pretty confusing for me and even though the administration did everything they could to try and fix the situation, I chose not to pursue obtaining residency in California as a result. Not a huge deal, I still interviewed for several very selective residency spots and got my second choice. I've since settled down in the state where I completed my residency, and looking back as a licensed/certified MD, I sometimes wonder "what if" I had pursued the residency in Cali (where I initially wanted to be). The other thing, getting acceptable clinical rotations to meet those state requirements are often difficult to obtain. From what I understood at the time, those spots were prioritized for locals of that state and/or students with merit. It was likely in my control (using the merit argument), but the whole situation was a bit convoluted for me until actually going through it, and therefore was the aspect I liked least of Ross U. If you go international, and you want to train in a state with an exception, make sure your ducks are in a row from the get go." | Report Response

"zero professional guidance, exceptionally poor exposure to good medicine and good mentors throughout 3rd year cores, exceptionally poor teaching preclinically for the vast majority of 1-2 year, dealing with administration is very difficult and takes a very long time" | Report Response

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"Having read the other review here about Ross University SOM, I was compelled to provide students considering this route with another perspective. I studied hard and passed all my exams/boards with good/great scores on the first try. I secured an excellent residency spot with my second choice. After completing my residency, I got my license and board certification and now I'm living the dream as a clinical assistant professor for a major university. In addition, my close network of friends all obtained equally good residency spots - many FP and IM but also EM, OBGYN, surgery, etc... I personally didn't know anyone who went into rads/ortho/anesthesia/derm and the like, but my friends didn't apply for those spots. Friends of friends did get in though. FYI, a match list is posted on the Ross website for all to see going back to 2005... So, it's really not a mystery. Ross grads do match into good residencies and the ones that are determined and put in the work are well respected by their peers. Having worked in a faculty position at a US medical school now for several years I will attest, the education does not differ between schools. Medical school is medical school, they all teach the same thing... It's the students that differ. I do feel bad for those who did not make it, but it's for the best because being a physician is not an easy path to take. It only gets more difficult and the responsibility only increases as you progress through school into residency. At Ross, just like any other medical school, you will be tested. But at Ross, factor in that you will likely be away from family, friends, familiar comfortable places and foods. It's not for everyone. It's an opportunity. If you want it bad enough, and if your determined and driven, you will succeed!" | Report Response

"Going to Ross ensures your exposure to medicine will be terrible, you will do no research, and you will not have much of a chance at anything except the lowest tier residencies unless you have prior ties to those schools. You will have more red tape to go through after graduation. You will have a 50-50 chance of matching even if you get through the preclinical years, which less than half of students do. If this is the only choice you have to get a medical degree in the US and that is the only thing that will make you happy then take it, otherwise stay far away." | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
