    Dismissal/Transfer chances?

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I completed 5 semesters at RUSM, and failed to pass my comp. I had originally requested time off before my last attempt because my father was in the hospital, a best friend had passed away, and my fiance left me (She was 2 semesters ahead of me, and found someone in her rotation), so I was admittedly a wreck, however RUSM did not give me the time off before my last attempt and I had failed it (I was 3 points off on the attempt before that, the month my friend passed away). I ended up transferring to UMHS a while after being dismissed, once I no longer needed help in the grieving process(it's been 14 months since I left the island, 8 months since my friend passed away and 5 months after being dismissed), and I passed my fifth semester here with flying colors. I'm expecting on scoring near where my NBMEs and Uworld Practice scores are, close to 235. (NBME 17 and 18, and exam 2 Uworld and exam 1 Kaplan). What are my chances of being able to transfer into the clinical sciences, or any 50 state school for that matter?

    Thank you

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I admire your tenacity to move toward your goals through the adversity. At this time, AUA is accepting candidates only into the first semester. Applicants who have taken courses at other medical schools may be considered but only if they are willing to restart their medical education if accepted. It's rare for a student who is several semesters into their medical to earn a seat at AUA, but it is possible. However, given UMHS is your second school, your best chance at residency may be to perform as well as possible on Step and finish up with UMHS if your appeals at Ross are exhausted. Good luck.
