"Do your research. Ross is going to sell you the best possible experience, but that may not always be the case. Talk to students who are on island before accepting."
"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!"
"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."
