    Raising Admission Standards.

    Advertisements



    Greetings:

    I have been hearing a lot of people speculating on whether or not Ross has decided to increase their admission standards for entering students into their medical program. I am just curious as to what some of the GPA and MCATs are for the most recently accepted students. I know it varies by individual but I just want a rough idea. Thanks a lot.

    MCAT scores?

    I'm sure that there's a lot of variation, and that many factors are taken into consideration when choosing to accept an applicant.

    Speaking with one administrator, I was told that they are looking at a minimum of a 21 on the MCAT, but I'm sure that there are exceptions to even that.

    Just including an MCAT requirement in the admissions process seemed, in itself, to deter many people from applying even. It's odd...I wouldn't consider a 21 to be an unachievable score with a bit of preparation.

    response

    This speculation that admission standards are increasing is sort of hogwash. My friend just got accepted with a 2.8 and an 18 or 19 mcat (can't remember which). I think that Ross really looks at the school you graduate from and the course work taken. There are lot of people posting that they had 3.0's and approx 25 mcats. I am willing to bet that these people probably took a minimal amount of science courses (only what Ross requires for entrance). My interviewer hinted that Ross still doesn't put much stock in the MCAT.

    Thanks to all who posted a reply. I just wanted to get a *rough* idea.
