    Will I get in to SGU Ross or SABA? What do you folks think?

    Also, what GPA scale do these schools use?

    That's about what I had, and I got into Ross (and I'm doing just fine, in fact, better than some with even higher scores that are also here.) Don't go for the "First Step" program if they offer it to you. Insist on full admission or go somewhere else. The "First Step" plan is bogus. You can always transfer in later.

    Also, it appears that Ross is, once again, being sold. Details are still sketchy, but it looks like they are trying to sell it to some U.S.-based "post-secondary" school. I just hope that post-secondary doesn't mean Devry or ITT Tech (or similar). I can just see the scrolling TV ads now...

    Get your training from DeVry! Degrees offered in...

    Things here change more often than a politician's mind!

    I think you should be solid shape and should be very competitive for any carribean schools. In fact, it's even competitive for less-competitive US state schools or private schools, and definitely solid for DO schools as well.

    Apply to a wide range of schools and see where you are interviewed and go from there. I suspect a good application and interview may be able to land you WL or admits in a state school or two in the US, unless you are from california, of course... :(

    jo80,
    don't sell your self short. If I were you I would at least apply to DO schools before I even attempted to go Caribbean. ;)
