    Residency match stats for Ross

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone!

    I know Ross has a good reputation for finding residencies. I am convinced Ross offers good quality education and especially appealing is its recognition in all 50 states. And their affiliation with 70 hospitals.

    I am still a little concerned looking at the residency match list on the website. comparing the numbers over the last five years.

    Year 2008 - roughly 400 matches
    Year 2007 - 300 matches
    Year 2006 - 251 matches
    Year 2005 - 280 matches
    and so on...

    But, my understanding is every term at least 400 students are enrolled into Ross. thats 400 x 3 = 1200 for the entire year. Yet, out of those 1200 enrolled, only a maximum of 500 (during 2007) made it to residency.

    Even then, What happens to the rest???
    In case, these people wait and reapply for the next term, how come the number for the next year remains almost same???
    In fact, it would be beneficial, if the Admin posts a list of ALL graduates and their outcome after couple years from graduation.

    hmmm..not sure but I heard that even though they accept 400 students per term...the amount of students who actually pass to sem 5 is about 100? But I'm not sure...

    like this other guy said, not everyone passes and gets all the way, that's the main reason why only 400 or whatever students Match. Of course some poeple match a year late, but it's not like 1200-400=800 students get pushed back. Almost all the excess you're counting fails out. I haven't started at Ross myself yet, but from what my friends there have said until now, I'm pretty sure every semester in the past didn't have 400 students, I think Jan and May starting semesters used to be smaller. Now I guess they're taking excessive nubmers of students who knows I'll prob start soon in a class of 800 haha. Maybe someone else can tell us how it is. Although what goody2shoes said about only 100 out of every 400, I doubt that's true, atleast I hope that's not true, otherwise the school would have No reputation if 75% of all students blatently Fail out.

    I don't know how many people matched but as far as class sizes go, most classes start off around 400 (especially the sept class) and by the time they leave the island, they are between 250 and 300. The graduating class in '08 was about 750-800 students.

    People worry about such superfluous stuff, especially those that have not even started. Look, here is the facts from a graduate. The place is hard,sometimes unfair, but if you work hard and not worry about anybody but yourself, you will make it thru and a find a residency spot period!!!! Who care about numbers this and numbers that! Just study and you will not be a ross casualty.

    Its great to be a Florida Gator and IM Board Certified!!

    So what is the residency placement percentage in terms of Ross' graduates?? Also, what is their USMLE passing rate percentage?

    one thing nobody has mentioned here. Ross does NOT require grads to report residency placemnet. my year, we had about 500 grads total. i knew of only one who did not get a spot. but only about 200 reported to Ross. so the numbers are skewed by that fact. as fro the 400 starting number, thats has been very variable. at one time class size was 12 per semester. when i was there, we started with 295. only 212 took semester 1 finals(as Gator says, the place is hard, people quit more often then fail). we ended up with about 165 from my semester graduate on time. when looked at compared to the 295 number, that looks poor, but when you take out those who quit(including 12 who transfered with full credit to US med schools after semester 5), the percentage looks much better.

    its med school. its hard. its dominica. it hard. its Ross. they accept a few who shouldn't have been givien a shot. thats hard for soem to accept.(the ones who shouldn't have been accpeted usually).

    you know you can call new jersey and get those USMLE pass percentagesd or pie charts or whatever. What they don't tell you is that it is hard to get up to and through 5th and that those who don't pass the comp don't even get to take the USMLE. Making sure that the numbers actually look higher than they actually would be if all the students took the step. What I am trying to say is that there is always something more to it....just do the work and don't play a percentage game, all in?

    Are there stats available for this? Are there many out there who never pass the comp and aren't able to take the step?

    I don't get why everyone's always riled up about exact numbers. I'm prettttty sure noone here's weighing going to a US school vs a Carib school/Ross. I could make up a number right now and make some of you happy. How about 86.7% or how about 46.2% or how about 67.1%? Does that really matter, if you've decided on going the Carib route, good call, as I'm about to start soon myself too. It honestly doesn't even matter if we're doing the SGU vs Ross vs AUC debate, it's still similar. I bet no entering student including myself even really knows the Step 1 first time pass rate or whatever for US schools. Then what is there to compare to. Unless a Ross official tells me the pass rate or whatever is something whack like 15%, I'm not changing my mind personally and backing out. For those of you 4 years ahead of us and getting residencies anywhere and posting on here, you're proof enough of the school and the hard work required and that;s awesome I just hope I can share your glory someday!
