    AUA or ROSS???

    I recently got accepted to both AUA and ROSS and now I have the difficult decision of deciding which one I will be attending in September. I know they are both good schools and m having trouble deciding which one to attend. I know a doctor who went to ross who is doing fantastic in his career, but then again he went there awhile back, 80's probably. Any advice on which you think is the best?

    tough decision i agree. i go to AUA and have only heard bad overall reviews from ross by their transfer students. aua only school that are not certified is in California. there are three different 5th semester locations offered; staten island NY , Atlanta Ga, and Miami Fl. (true story)
    other than paying about 11% (without a cosigner) or 8% on private loan with a co signer AUA gurantees a loan if you have a 650 credit score and a 2.0 overall GPA.
    a positive about ROSS however is that they have a good reputation in the US and AUA's is still growing.

    Only being in semester 2, One things that the transfer students did say about AUA is that the teachers here are much better for first semester. Anatomy is taught by many different teachers and each teach in their own specialty; the Dr.s of anatomy are great teachers and the Dr. in histology tells you exactly what you need to know in order not to just pass the shelf but to do GREAT on the SHELVES. which the transfer students all agreed that the teachers at ROSS gave them too much detail without the emphasis on high yield topics.

    second semester however is entirely different. many people stopped going to all or most of the classes because the 6 hours of classes a day (2 for biochem, 1 for genetics, 1 for neurology and 2 for physio) cut into the time that was really needed to do independant study and most importantly sleep.... the teachers basically read off powerpoint slides to you for the BC and gentics and are all taught by the same teachers. Neurology is (him and the histo as well as the head anatomy teachers are all former proffessors at ross and i belive SGU as well) and the class notes are used by students in ross as well.

    either way if your worried about having to repeat an entire semester go to AUA if you want to practice in Ca go to ROSS.. if you have bad credit go to ROSS.... either way it doesn't matter where you go it matters how you study while your there. study hard enough and you will pass themost important test which is step 1.

    The classes at Aua seem so small, is that a good thing or a bad thing? I would think it was a good thing, more like private tutoring. It makes me wonder if it will be open in a few years, thou.

    Small class size is a relative term.....My AUA 4th semester classes had 160-170ish people in them. That might be smaller than Ross, but they are still large classes.

    i think everyones main objective is to make sure they kill their STEP after basic science. from that perspective, i feel ross would give you the edge.
    secondly, students mostly transfer from ross to aua because they failed at ross.
    you won't hear about aua students transferring to ross. furthermore, those students that transferred from ross to aua seem to do pretty well here.
    to me that implies the competition at ross is more challenging, hence, a better grasp on basic science is required to get through.. which helps for step1 prep.

    why do you feel that ross would give you the edge on step1?
    When you say you will not hear about students transfering from aua to ross, do you mean because they would not be accepted or because they would not want too?

    what do you mean in the last paragraph? how does that compare to Aua.

    would one have much more opportunity as far as specialty etc coming from Ross or sgu as apposed to AUA, assuming the same grades on steps.
