    I Need Help!!

    Advertisements



    Hey:

    I was accepted to SMU and Ross (MD), and am waiting to hear back from Saba. Which do you think is a better school to attend? If I look at the big three as a whole, I would go with Ross, but knowing the fact that it weeds out a large fraction of its students is making me not want to go there. Would you guys say Saba is a better school than Ross at preparing you for boards?

    I have an idea. I think I'll just attend all three and commute from one island to the next via boats to attend my classes. Just kidding.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Everyone that I have seen that went as far as to be kicked out of ross definantly shouldn't have been doctors. Ross isn't a super difficult school, if you are reasonably intelligent you should get through with no problems. Saba is a good school, I knew a professor that taught at Saba and Ross and this prof (who shall remain nameless) said that Saba had a stronger, yet more difficult program. The prof was someone i respected greatly. I don't know enough about SMU to comment on it

    You should go to Ross if you are 100% sure that you want to be a DR and little things aren't going to get in your way and bum you out (electricity going out, food, being isolated from friends and family and 100 other things). If you're really serious about doing that, then that stuff will seem very superficial and not matter much and you'll go on your merry way. Also, you have to be sure that you are confident that you will be able to handle the workload and adapt to it otherwise you're setting yourself up to be in a whole lot of debt w/ nothing to show for it. The curriculum isn't easy here and you have to work very hard to get through it. Cant say how it compares to other schools curriculum since I dont have much info about them.

    Well, if I could do it again, I'd go anywhere BUT Ross.
