    as a general rule, most schools do not accept transfer credits from other schools. part of the reason is purely academic, part is based on the business model.

    New regulations for US registered institutions now require the following disclaimer:

    "Decisions concerning the acceptance of XXX credits by any institution other than an XXX are made at the sole discretion of the receiving institution. XXX makes no representation whatsoever concerning the transferability of any XXX credits to any institution.
    It is unlikely that any credits earned at XXX will be transferable to or accepted by any institution.
    Students considering continuing their education at, or transferring to, any institution other than XXX must not assume that credits earned at XXX will be accepted by the receiving institution. An institution's accreditation does not guarantee that credits earned at that institution will be accepted for transfer by the other institution. Students must contact the registrar of the receiving institution to determine what XXX credits, if any, that institution will accept."

    Any school that charges tuition should stand behind the credits that are issued. If a school issues such a "disclaimer" it is because they do not believe in their own product or credentials. Historically the ECFMG has maintained that only credits from IMED listed schools can be accepted as transfer credits. In 2008 the ECFMG issued a further directive that the school must be IMED listed at the time that you take the course. So if a school is going to be IMED listed soon, it is useless to take a course. That is what you should watch out for.

    I know someone who moved from ASUM to Windsor because they are cheaper, he says class sizes are very big (over 100).in ASUM its much
    more individualized.
    Even though. In my opinion its not the school, you can be an excellent MD no matter what school you chose. You could be in the best school of the world and suck as a doctor. The question should be where do you think you can do better. Once you chose a school dont second guess yourself which school is better, justs study your *** off.
    I think will look bad on your transcript if you are jumping from school to school, it may make it harder to get a residency.
    this is my humble opinion

    To my understanding they're essentially on the same level. I haven't heard much about ASUM in general. Windsor may be cheaper but I think neither has state approval yet, which is more of an issue in terms of how long you can stay in a given state during rotations. As long as you do well on Step Exams, I want to say it almost doesn't matter where you go, then again obviously some schools may have better methods and such than other for prep, but we all know we're more or less expected to do study on our own.

    Depending on how your stats look, you might want to look into MUA, AUA, or UMHS. I suppose if I had to choose between the two, I would go for Windsor mainly because I know some people who have gone there and have heard it's "ok". As others have mentioned most med schools have restrictions on where they accepts credits from and how many. That's not new and is also the case with most, almost all U.S., schools. This doesn't reflect poorly on ASUM or Windsor in my opinion it's more about business and academic policies than anything else. Either way, good luck with your decision

    Maybe so... but it is a better risk to select a school where 80% make it rather than 20%. You can tell from the USMLE step 1 pass rate. Choose wisely earthlings...

    I would like to know where you got such "reliable" statistics.
    Is it posted on the ECFMG webpage?
    Did you get it from the universities themselves?
    Did you hear them from somone else?
    Are these stats credible?
    If you can point me to any official webpage where you get these stats, you will make me a believer.

    It seems like Windsor has a lot of young students.
