Hello:

I had a question about the quality of rotations in New York. I heard that SGU offers better clinical rotations than Ross because SGU tends to keep its students in the same hospital or within one area. On the other hand, Ross has its students moving several times to do rotations in many hospitals.
I am a bit concerned about this, so does anyone know how much truth there is in this statement?

I applied to both schools and did very well in both interviews so I am trying to get enough information about both schools before I make a decision. I am having a hard time deciding which school would be better because I have heard good things about both schools. I read on another post that some programs give preference to SGU grads over Ross or they will only take SGU grads as the only FMGs. I'm not sure how much truth there is to these statements or if they only apply to the competitive residencies. I had pediatrics or OB/GYN in mind and those are not very competitive.

Thanks, I appreciate the help. :)

Well most people will probably tell you if you get into SGU go there. If you don't get in, then go to Ross so from a decision standpoint it is really pretty easy. :)

Just curious, but what are your reasons to choose SGU over Ross?

Thanks :)

Just like you said, but not just the location of the rotations but also the quality of the rotations in ACGME accredited hospitals.

Thanks. Other than the rotations, are there any other reasons you would take into consideration in choosing SGU over Ross?
