    re

    If I were you, I wouldn't hang onto the dream of starting out at Ross and then transferring. Or going anywhere and looking to transfer. The list of US medical schools that accept US transfers is increasingly becoming shorter.

    Schools in the past that accepted transfers do not anymore and some schools wont even accept US medical school transfers. Ive heard that 2% of people are allowed to transfer between medical schools, american and foreign combined.

    Im not sure if this part is true, but I remember reading or hearding something about this lcme? accrediation american schools are applying for now. Part of it requires that schools deny transfer applicants from an overseas school. I dont know if this is truth or rumor though.

    For the schools Ive seen, dont know where a list exists. More of a school by school basis really.

    Are MCP hanneman, Tulane, Univ of Cincinnati?, SUNY syracuse?, columbia, georgetown, BU, Brown, and Univ of Chicago? Some of these schools might not allow transfers anymore and some might. You'll have to look it up for each school individually.

    From my own reading, most schools, if they do allow transfers, will only accept you after you have completed your basic sciences and taken Step I. And then they also want all your pre medical school information like MCAT score, undergrad, grad, science grades, etc.

    Hope this helps some.

    transfer

    definetly dont assume you are going to trasnsfer. my class set a record, with 16 transfers out of the 500 or so who started with 2003 as a grad year. they all had scores that were nothing less then amazing. it is also done by luck fo the draw. the only time it happens, is when a school who will accept transfers has a spot open. so in other words, hahnemann may have takena few rossies from my class, but if the year you apply, they have no second years fail, trhen they dont have any open 3rd year spots. so you would then lose.

    on transfers

    I noticed some really prominent Med Schools mentioned there in the discussion on transfers. Its hard enough to get into those med schools, let alone transfer into them. To comment on this post, there frankly isnt that much if almost any transfer between US medical schools. When it comes to a state institution, you will be given the same chance of entry as any other applicant. Kind of an application of whats called "even application of the law" when public funds are used to support the Medical School. Your best bet if you want to try that is complete your first two years plus the USMLE 1 and submit your credentials to the state medical school in your state of residency. At that point things like College grades kick in, MCAT, and all the prerequisites for admission that were once there in the first place. Frankly, I dont see why you'd want to do that, Ross graduates are really doing well and Ross is a well respected Medical school whose graduates attain good residency positions and make fine physicians. Its a commonly know fact, that a large percentage of doctors in the US are foriegn trained and there is no adverse attitude against them. Richard.
