    Just pull up your PBL list and read the line number at the bottom of the list.

    amazing eh

    that's half the size of the previous semester's


    now imaging if 40 of these had to repeat. then the class would shrink to about 100, which is the size of a typical US med school class

    Class Size

    Does anyone know why the entering class size has decreased by nearly 50% from the previous semesters? Is it because the university now requires students to take the MCAT exam? Or has the university become more selective?

    Thanks,
    William

    Ross

    Im sure that its a combination of those plus I would assume that many people are still in college. Most people graduate in May.

    size

    I imagine when that class gets to second semester, the small size will allow them to have a really good experience with anatomy and lab etc.

    its january

    january clases were traditionally smaller. I know Ross has inflated their size of late, but when I was there, a january class of that size would be considered huge.

    Class size in anatomy lab isn't a problem anymore. Dr. King did an awesome job redoing the entire lab program. We now have 15 I-Macs in the lab and we record all of our dissections for the rest of the class to see. We also have computer atlases that we can use in class. He also changed the dissection schedule, everyone dissects once a week now as opposed to every 2-3 weeks.

    other schools are on the up and up.

    The last 2 January classes have been larger than this current January class. Why the drop in enrollment?

    There are probably several factors that played a role. I guess it really depends on each student.

    2-3 years ago, when i was researching and applying to caribbean medical schools, there really were only 3 solid choices that everyone seemed to agree on...SGU, Ross and AUC. But, in a short span of time, Saba and SMU have built up their programs such that if I were to do it all over again, I would have considered these schools. Mostly likely, I would have not enrolled at Ross and would have gone to AUC or SGU.

    For me, cost was a big issue as well. AUC is cheaper and with the rise in Ross tuition, I would seriously re-think going to SGU instead. 3 years ago, SGU may have cost $5,000/semester more than Ross but recently, that difference is about half that. I'm sure there are people who got into both Ross and SGU and opted to pay the small difference to attend SGU.

    From what I currently see and experience, the clinical students from AUC and SGU are just as good as my classmates at Ross. So, this begs the question: why suffer through Dominica when you can get the same thing for cheaper in St Maartin?

    Perhaps prospective students have mulled it over themselves and made their choices to best fit their needs. I wonder if enrollment at AUC, SGU, SMU and Saba are down 50% for their January classes.
