    Attending Ross after withdrawing from a US med school

    Background:
    2006-2007 : started M1 year at my state school and took a leave of absence due to poor grades.

    2007-2008 : Restarted my M1 year (while on the "academic achievment plan" AAP) and passed with a 3.3 GPA

    2008-2009 : Started my M2 year while still on the AAP and failed the first set of exams. My school would not let me take leave, but I am guaranteed to fail one course which is not taught in the summer, which means I will fail the M2 year. My school gave me two options: withdraw or go in front of the executive faculty committee. If I go to the executive faculty and they vote to dismiss me, it goes on my permanent record that I have been dismissed. If I withdraw, it goes on my record that i withdrew. The dean told me that if anyone called the school, that her only response would be that I withdrew facing disciplinary action.

    I plan on withdrawing because I have one professor on the committee that is not on my side about staying, and because I am not risky. I would rather take the education I have and go somewhere else than to have a dismissal on my record. Also, I have been told that very few people successfully make it through the committee and stay at school.

    I called Ross University about transfering. They were very encouraging about applying, but the more I read, the more worried I am about getting a residency after going to Ross with my past record.

    What I want to know is - do you think it is possible to salvage my education by going to Ross? Do you think I would be able to get a residency? (I would like to go into EM, FM, or IM)

    Thanks!

    dude just withdraw, and start over in the caribb, clean slate. I know of 3 kids who never disclosed their 1st US matricualtion and are now licensed attendings. just keep your head down, study, and stay under the radar.

    1) why bring up a 2 yr old post with nothing significant to add?
    2) yes disclose it, if found you risk being dismissed, or not being able to be licensed or boarded due to lying. then you have a huge debt and possibly legal charges for trying to lie to state medical boards. Dumb idea.
