    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?

    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.
    Ross will not accept students from AUA

    You will have more opportunities at Ross as far as specialties etc. because Ross and SGU are more well known and there are many more states to choose from as opposed to AUA. As far as the actual education at AUA, it's pretty good as long as you put the time and effort in.

    If one does not get the specialty that he or she wants. Would another chance exist down the line in the way of a fellowship, or some other way.

    have you seen a lot of students who have gotten shut out of specialty's, strictly because of the school they came from. I know it happens but I am trying to get a better idea of the options. thanks

    everyone's been speaking mostly about the federal loans and licensing in california..

    but what about students from canada? licensing in california would not effect us, and neither do federal loans(?) , so aside from those things, what would you guys think of AUA vs ROSS?

    Read the Canadian IMG Section on this website. I am a Canadian myself and would love to go back.. but trust me it's near to impossible to get back to Canada.

    I think I am probably going to be living in the states after I graduate.

    In my opinion if you are seriously planning to return to Canada to practice medicine go with either SGU or AUC.

    Between AUA and Ross, I would think they would have an equal chance.. only advantage Ross would have is that its an older school.

    I'm Canadian too. I think we need to be careful about state licensing even if you're planning on returning home. What if you don't get a residency here, you may be forced to spend a couple years in the US. Better to be safe than sorry.

    My question is this? Exactly how many states (aside from Cali and company) don't recognise AUA?

    impossible to come back to canada? are you referring to getting a residency in canada? or even impossible to practice in canada? why would that be impossible? don't we just have to finish the md, and the usmle's, finish residency, and we'll have everything equivalent to the canadian mle's right?

    Easier said than done, you first of all need to get into residency programs which sponsor you since you're an international. The more states open, the more programs. With Cali, you're also saying goodbye to Arkansas, Alaska, New Mexico, Tennesse and North Dakota. Plus there are more states looking to adopt it, with the latest rumour being that it might be Georgia.

    Now you might be thinking "why the heck would I want to do residency in Arkansas or North Dakota, it's all farmland anyways" Well those are the places which will give us (I'm Canadian as well) internationals the best shot, the reject residencies of anytown USA.

    It's probably next to impossible to gain Residency in Canada directly out of AUA (US med school grads find it extremely difficult). Not sure why practicing in Canada would be impossible after completing Residency in the US and practicing for a few years. Depending on the Province, Canada is attracting MDs educated outside of Canada. Ontario for example has made USMLE 1-3 equivalent to MCCQE 1 & 2.

    I'm not sure if I'm writing this in the right place, but I hope someone can correct me if I'm mistaken. Does NY approval only mean that students can do more than 12 weeks of rotations in New York? And if that is the case, couldn't New York, and any state for that matter, adopt the Cali list? Is it possible for every state to adopt the Cali list and as a result any grad from any school without Cali approval would not be able to practice in the US in the future. Is this hypothetical situation a possibility? I really don't intend to start any fights or anything, but I am very curious and hope someone may correct me if I am mistaken.
