    Need some help with Ross?

    Advertisements



    Hello, im new to this site i just stumbled upon it.

    I need some help with if i'll be able to get accepted to Ross medical school.

    I graduated from a university with a BA in Biological Sciences and a GPA of 2.8 ( not sure my science gpa or how it will look when my grades will be averaged because i retook some classes )

    I was part of many clubs including some medical organizations and greek life.
    Im currently working as a scribe right now as well.

    Im retaking my MCAT in two weeks and hopefully ill hit over 500.

    will i be able to get into ross?
    and also what is MERP that ross offers.

    The GPA is on the lower end but its not hopeless. If your MCAT score is really good maybe you may get offered direct admission/MERP. If your MCAT score is average or lower than Ross' advertised stats, then I'd think slim to no chances especially since your GPA is already below average. So be sure to do relatively well on MCAT and you'll be fine. If you did grade replacement and did well DO might be a better option tbh.

    also, FYI MERP is Medical Education Readiness Program. This is directly from their website

    "The [MERP] is a 15-week medical school preparatory program focused on preparing aspiring medical students for success in medical school. MERP is offered to students who have been granted conditional acceptance to Ross University School of Medicine.MERP's mission has two components:

    • Provide students from diverse backgrounds with additional academic preparation to foster their success in medical school
    • Help determine the readiness of these students to meet the demands of a fast-paced and rigorous medical school curriculum like the one at Ross"


    Anyways, best of luck on your MCAT and your application as well

    Depending on how well you score on MCAT and how long it's been since you graduated, you might not have to MERP and can go straight to the island...really depends on you as a whole candidate.

    Like the other folks said it's hard with this GPA. In their website they say "GPA will be considered in application" and we all know that Ross is one of the top ones. It depends on the MCAT score so it is not impossible. Hope you did well in MCAT and will be accepted to Ross.

    Ross has an average MCAT of 497. Score above this and your chances of direct admission will increase.
    My GPA is 2.8 and science gpa is 2.6 and I have a 501 MCAT, I have an interview in 2 days. Youll get an interview, I think most everyone does. My guess is if you do well in the interview youll get straight admission.

    They are so desperate for students at this point, as long as you qualify for loans, you will get in.
