That low score is probably going to screw you. Do you have time to reschedule before you leave? And at least try this time? You'd get your score in a month or whatever it is. If not Ross, you could try the cheaper, lower tier schools.
First of. If you don't have source for money semester 2 and on, don't waste your money on semester 1. Second, Ross will not take you with any score as transfer from SABA. This topic has been address many many many times.
You're better off pushing back your starting semester to figure out a different loan option.
Med school is stressful enough, you don't want to worry about finances on top of that.
My plans got screwed up a bit, just take the extra time, study for the MCAT, get a part time job, enroll in some post-bacc classes. You can get federal loans for this. It helped my chances. They said they were impressed with my performance in those classes (take hard ones), as well as my MCAT improvement. And in any interviews you can certainly explain what happened. It is a reasonable reaction to a crappy circumstance, however, make sure you explain not putting effort on the MCAT was in retrospect a poor decision. That won't be a big deal, I pretty much said I did some stupid stuff in undergrad (W's on transcript I didn't need, getting horrible grades one semester, etc) and I learned from my mistakes. Being young explains a lot. Carib schools, even the top ones, are forgiving. In the US, they aren't. The fact that you got into a Big 4 already shows you can do it. This isn't as bad as you think. It's just going to push stuff back.
I suggest you take 1 year off before heading to med school unprepared like you did now. Improving MCAT, work out financial problem (finding another co-signer is more realistic than work your *** off in some retail store and SAVE UP..) then reapply to Ross for Jan '12 semester. Take it or leave it..
Hope it help.
If you want to do something, then you will find a way.
If you want to do nothing, then you will find an excuse.
What, how many of these threads do you have? You could have just posted it in the main forum.
