I am a new 7th semester student at Ross, having turned so yesterday, and am currently in my third core rotation, with my fourth core rotation scheduled. When my first four cores were scheduled, I was told that when I became a seventh semester student I would be able to schedule the remaining two rotations, surgery and pediatrics.
I called the clinical call center today and the woman on the phone laughed so hard she almost dropped the phone. I was told that it would be weeks before I would be able to schedule the cores, but if I didn't want any down time I should schedule my electives and worry about the cores later.
In part from an Ask Ross reply: "We are aware that you recently turned 7th semester ; however, as previously stated you will be contacted shortly to schedule your missing cores."
I will update as I get more information, or weekly. I post this because I think many Ross students have some question as to availability of surgery and pediatric rotations. This string will not prove or disprove a shortage of clinical spots, but it will reflect my real time scheduling timeline.
