    Should prospective applicants be worried about accreditation status given the current situation for Ross??

    I know they are currently doing classes in Knoxville while the island is recovering.

    As someone currently looking to go there, if anyone has some insight or has spoken to them I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Yes, you should be concerned. Whats even more concerning is the fact that they aren't even talking about it or mentioning it at all during interviews.

    Who's the best source to discuss this and/or ask these questions to in your opinion?

    So I spoke to the senior admissions counselor this morning and casually slipped in the question. According to him, the plan for Ross is to be back in Dominica by January. I asked for some more clarity but he said that was the plan as of yet. I'd probably like to ask another person.

    You can and should ask the admissions people about this. Whether or not they answer or answer truthfully is another story. They've all been coached to say January at this point, but just a few months ago it was May 2018 and then it was September 2018...

    To be fair, none of the low level admissions people at Ross know much about anything. They all just go by the scripts they are given, however, there is a difference between painting a rosy picture during recruitment and lies by omission.

    When I interviewed at Ross last year the interviewer told me that she doubted the school would be back in Dominica by May or September. I don’t think you guys understand the actual damage that was done to the campus and the island. You can’t rebuild housing and amenities for 1400+ students in just a few months, especially since it takes time for supplies to ship in, and more time to actually find workers to build everything.

    I spoke to my doctor who actually attended a caribbean school (not Ross). He told me that when his school had to relocate due to a storm everything was fine but once they went back to the island it was a lot harder. He also said that things wont be the same anymore and it will take the school a long time to adjust back on the island after it being destroyed. So most likely Ross wont have a lot of resources on the island.

    That's what I'm assuming will happen at this point. Possibly they extend an extra semester in Tennessee. Long term I assume they'll be back in Dominica 2019.
