    Well, I can name three or four:

    St. George
    Ross
    AUC

    are certainly the top three, and are usually ranked in that order although I'm not sure thats necessarily valid.

    Saba is probably number four. The only significant difference between Saba and the top three (to me) is that Saba isn't approved by the State of California and the others are. This limits the US States that one can practice in. Saba is supposed to have an on-site inspection by the California Medical Board next month, so we'll see how they do.

    All will give a quality medical education.

    After that.....as they say, your mileage may vary.

    uh-oh

    Watch out! You opened a can of worms now, lol!

    I personally have no opinion, , but do browse this board for a while, and you will see which schools are highly thought of by people, which one's are considered scams, and so forth.

    Then do your own research with the 3 or 4 schools that impress you the most. Shop like a wizened grandmother looking for the best produce...ignore the the shiny packages and the "new and improved" ads, but squeeze and thump each product while listening and smelling for any tell-tale signs of over-ripeness, bruising, or down-right rotteness.

    schools

    If you really want productive answers, Id rephrase the question. What youre asking merely will get people out to make big claims over weeny issues (nothing is more ridiculous than a bunch of IMGs insulting each other and their schools as every US grad is laughing down at them). What you want to know is:
    1) pass rates on the usmle (if youre looking to do residency in the us)
    2) % who make it to boards with their class and dont decel or drop out
    3) can you get licensed in the state/country you want to practice in?
    4) do people from that school get good residencies (ie in what you want)
    5) within the context of the above look at cost, lifestyle etc.

    as you can see this makes the question far more complex and, frankly, useful to you.
