Hi I wanted to ask you any of you guys if you have been accepted to Ross recently or even had an interview and are awaiting the results.

Can you please tell me your OVERALL GPA and Science GPA and MCAT score?

Also if you did research... etc or not.

You are going to laugh! After reading everyone's concern about getting into schools with certain scores (MCAT 29?!?!?! 25?!?!?!; GPA 3.9?!?!?!). Well, let me offer you rest, I got accepted to Ross (and will start this january) with a freakin 20 MCAT and a 3.33 G.P.A.! SO THERE! I don't think anyone has anything to worry about. Just show that you are dedicated.

I should note that I do have two publications (four pending), two years of research (6 research projects) and I am completing a Masters in Biomedical Science. I worked for Loma Linda University Med for 5 years in clinical and shadowed. None of these are any more significant than other vitae padding attempts. I guess i should have spent more of my time in the books LOL.


God bless!

I do not think that some of you realize that many people applying to Ross and other Carib schools do not even have a 3.0 and might be sporting a sub-25 MCAT.

Worst case scenario, they offer you the MERP program and it takes 3 more months to get your MD. Small obstacle for someone who is determined to become a physician.
