    Best Memories at RUSOM

    Advertisements



    Hey former and current students could you please hightlight your best memories at RUSOM! Whether is was making the highest grade in class.......Getting a 4.0...Professors...Friends...Hang out spot...etc...

    The main purpose of this thread is just to see if there are actually any positive things students got out of RUSOM because I hear so many horror stories from disguntled students!

    Not much really...just a few scant memories, usually post-mini exam. But I think the BEST part was the day I left the island after completing 4th semester...that seriously had to be one of the best, early days of my life (esp since I haven't had a child yet or, if some would even concur, the day you get married to the one you love, etc), but yeah, that day I left was pretty high up there.
    Good luck.

    Cuando2,
    Are you currently doing your clinicals right now? Internship? Residency? How is that going for you?

    I am in residency, and it is going well. Once you are free from Ross, you will feel so much better. You will not have trouble finding a residency either, so don't worry about not making it.
    Good luck.

    Nothing tops skipping the 3rd sem final back in summer 07 due to an incoming hurricane. Craziest 48 hours of my life hands down.

    That WAS awesome! I was like, yeah taking the average and I'm outty! I managed to get on a plane 2 days early being on stand-by for 10 hours! I'd also have to agree about the day I left but honestly a great deal of pride came from that day as well, knowing that I had made it through it all. Makes you feel like you can do anything.

    Also, I loved being involved in the campus! I ran a couple clubs during my time there and was part of SGA - while it probably won't matter for my applications or anything, it was so worth it! To have the chance to make a difference and help time go by a little faster was something I was so very glad to do!
    When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high and you want to smile Hidden Content , but you have to cry Hidden Content , When care is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but don't you quit!

    You can never tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit - It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!

    Even though going to Ross sucks (esp for the amount of money you are paying), but if you have the means and ability, get into a US school. If not, stick with either Ross or SGU. The other schools may "look" nicer and seem like a nicer place to live, etc, but MANY MANY more people recognize Ross (and SGU) in random parts of the US compared to the other schools out there (if I'm not mistaken, nearly every caribbean island has a medical school on it now, all known by some random acronym like SUM, SUS, ASU, AUS, AUA, etc)
    Good luck.
