    Waiting for rotations

    I was just wondering if anyone else has been asked to wait until July to start their rotations......and if you are waiting, what are you planning on doing until you start.

    why would you want to transfer to another Caribbean school? And if you did want to transfer, why St. Matthews? I think the only one even worth considering would be SGU

    Actually, Ross doesn't. I know friends who tried, and they do not accept AUA credits. I was just saying in theory, the only school worth transferring to in the caribbean would be SGU. I was just saying its really not worth it, unless you have circumstances that prevent you from completing your work at your original caribbean university

    Ross takes transfers AFTER you pass the step 1 which is what the OP was asking about.

    why would I want to transfer? Because I'm tired of this school. Because I dont want to wait 4-5 months to land a green clinical spot after the step

    Copied and pasted from Website. Also, as I said Ross would take transfers from AUA only AFTER step 1 but that doesn't mean you would be able to practice in all 50 states. To practice in all 50 states you need to start AND finish in a school that has all 50 states.

    From Website http://www.rossu.edu/medical-school/...etstarted.cfm:

    Transfer Applicants
    Students enrolled, or previously enrolled, in a limited number of medical schools may apply for admission with advanced standing. Such applicants must arrange with the medical school they are currently attending for an official transcript of their academic record to be sent to Ross University. Students who have taken the USMLE Step 1 or Step 2, successfully or not, must also provide copies of their test results.
    Additionally, transfer students must meet all the requirements for admission to Ross University; namely they should have earned a bachelor's degree or equivalent from an American, Canadian, or other international recognized college or university. Occasionally applicants qualify for admission upon completion of 90 credits (i.e., three fulltime years) of post-secondary studies. The pre-medical studies of transfer students must include the following prerequisite courses: one year of inorganic or general chemistry with labs, one year of organic chemistry with labs, one year of general biology or zoology with labs, one year of physics with labs, college-level mathematics (preferably to include calculus or statistics), and one year of English. Students interested in transferring to Ross University are required to provide MCAT scores as a prerequisite for admission.
    Transfer candidates who have completed part or all of the basic sciences will be placed in the appropriate semester of the Ross University curriculum. The level of placement in the curriculum will be determined by the Admissions Committee in consultation with the Promotions Committee. For candidates who have successfully completed the basic sciences and are eligible to sit for the USMLE Step 1 (or have already completed Step 1), the level of placement in the curriculum will be by the Dean of Clinical Sciences. Typically, transfer candidates in this category will be admitted to the AICM.

    You sure about that? I recently passed my step 1 back in September. I called Ross after getting my score, and they told me that they do not even accept AUA credits and it doesnt matter that I have step 1 completed. The lady said I would have to start back at Med 1 if I wanted to transfer. After calling AUC, they said they would consider it based on my step 1 score, but I would have to repeat 5th. SGU wanted me to write a letter explaining why I wanted to transfer before they considered it.
    I also was inquiring "just to see" what my options were in case I had to wait a while for rotations. I had a 3 week break before my first rotation, didn't consider contacting either SGU or AUC after what thye had told me.

    You may want to check your sources on the conditions on transferring to Ross. I have a friend who went to Ross, transferred to AUA for 5th, tried transferring back after Step 1 ...and Ross said they wouldn't consider her

    I called Ross after passing my Step 1 in Oct. They informed me they do not take transfers from AUA, whether or not you passed your step doesn't matter. Basically if you want to go to Ross and they accept you, you have to start from semester 1 if you are a transfer from AUA. I was trying to transfer to a school with a stable FA situation. I called SGU, SABA, AUC, Ross, and a few others. SOme of them will transfer you into the 2-3rd smeester depending...but none into their clinicals. Sigh.

    I spoke to three different people about this at Ross and I was shot down every time. They may accept transfers from other schools (limited according to their own website) but not from AUA.
