    Total effective cost b/w SGU, AUC, ROSS

    Advertisements



    Can someone fill me in as to what's the total cost between these schools. Initial calculations make AUC more cost-effective by nearly $50,000 just on tuition alone.

    AUC

    Basic Sciences:
    Semesters 1-4: $13,200/semester (52,800)
    Semester 5: $14,300 (14300)

    Clinical Sciences:
    Semesters 6-9: $14,600/semester (58,400)
    Semester 9.5: $7,300 (7300)

    TOTAL = 132,800

    Single bedroom; single occupancy (total occupants: 1): $5,000/semester
    Double bedroom; single occupancy (total occupants: 2): $4,200/semester

    Total rooming for basic sciences ~ 21,000

    N.B. I'm assuming you don't have to live on the island for the clinicals and thus no cost for that. Is that correct? Do you ever have to make trips back to the island after the first 2 years?


    SGU1,2,3,4 = $65,843
    5,6 = $24,577
    7-11 = $98,665

    TOTAL = 189,085

    Malpractice insurance terms 7-11
    Total for all terms = 1700
    oral exam fee = 970
    graduation fee = 521

    Ok what are these fees and does AUC and ROSS have them?

    Whats the room cost in SGU? Their faq doesn't cover it


    1) What's the cost for Ross? Their tuition part of the website leads to a dead page

    2) Food?

    3) Internet? Is it dial-up-pay-by-the-minute?

    4) Can you stay in the dorms the entire 2 first years or are you kicked out after the first term?

    From what I've been able to found out it seems SGU dorm costs are included in the tuition cost. Is that correct?

    Thus the total cost would be around ~190,000$ + food/travel expenses + living costs while doing rotations.

    Also with regards to the SGU scholarship, what sort of stats are needed to be competitive for it. Would a 3.8GPA, 30+ MCAT with a masters degree be competative at all?

    Any response is appreciated. thanks

    There are needs based and merit based scholarships, see link Financial Services - St. George’s University

    Your stats look good, they're higher than average, see link Medical Sciences Student Statisitcs - School of Medicine - St. George’s University

    i think its always a little more difficult to do this math than it first appears. Costs on one island aren't quite the same and what you spend for other needs/entertainment at one place (and even later in clinicals) isnt the same in another. So consider whatever math you do a ballpark open to a lot of variation.

    I would say SGU is the most expensive (by far) and AUC and Ross are about in the same boat depending on where you do your clinicals. If you do them in NYC, be ready to shell out some more cash.

    while true, the sum difference after total costs come in isn't as great as merely looking at tuition suggests.

    What are the other factors to consider?

    - Cost of living on given island
    - Costs associated with moving during clinicals (ie. if cores aren't readily available such as at Ross)

    - others?

    I've actually spoken to admission officers on the phone regarding fees of my top four choices which are SGU, Ross, AUC and SABA.

    For SGU, in total for the four years including tuition, fees, housing and books, it is estimated at $250,000. While for AUC it is $170,000 and Ross, it is around $220,000. I suggest that you also consider SABA which is the cheapest at $140,000. Hope this helps.
