How To Apply To Ross Med

Apply to RUSM Medical School

At Ross Med, you can apply to begin your medical school journey with three flexible enrollment dates throughout the year: January, May, or September. That means you don’t have to wait to start your medical school training—you can begin when you’re ready, at a time that makes sense for your life.

Three Steps to Apply to Ross Med

Take the MCAT and Review Requirements

First things first: Review our admission requirements to make sure you have everything you need. You should also take the Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) before applying—though it is possible to add your MCAT scores after submitting an application to Ross Med.

Complete the RUSM Application

If you’ve already started an application through the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®), the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine® Application Service (AACOMAS), or the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS), we make it easy to upload your common application to the Ross Med portal.

Send Supplemental Documents

It’s likely that you’ll have some supplemental documents to submit after your online application is finished, such as official transcripts. Send those to Ross Med when they’re available, and your application will be complete.

FAQs about Applying to Medical School

It’s normal to have lots of questions as you get ready to apply to medical school—so we’ve compiled a few answers to the most common ones below.

How to apply to medical school?

You can apply to RUSM by filling out our online medical school application or by submitting your AMCAS, AACOMAS, or TMDSAS application.

When to apply to medical school?

Ross University School of Medicine operates on rolling admissions, and application submissions close only as classes are filled. Medical school applicants are welcome to apply up to a year in advance of their intended semester. However, all prerequisite courses should be completed and MCAT scores made available.

How much does it cost to apply to medical school?

There is no fee for submitting the Ross University School of Medicine application.

What medical schools should I apply to?

As medical school admissions criteria may vary slightly, it is important for applicants to become knowledgeable about each institution’s requirements prior to submitting an application and apply to the programs that best match their credentials.

How many medical schools should I apply to?

Applying to multiple schools of medicine may increase your chances of admission, but applying to several schools at once may lead to emotional stress because of the many details and requirements, and financial stress, as other schools charge application fees. Applicants should apply to the number of schools they can comfortably undertake without diminishing the quality of each application.

Can I apply to medical school before taking the MCAT?

You may submit the Ross University School of Medicine application while preparing to take the MCAT exam. Our Admissions Coordinators will work with applicants to complete the rest of your application. However, MCAT scores must be available prior to the Admissions Committee’s review of the applicant’s file for admission.

What do you need to apply to medical school?
  • A completed application
  • Official transcripts from each college and/or professional school attended
  • At least two letters of recommendation (at least one must be academic)
  • MCAT score
  • Personal Statement
  • CV/Resume
Do I Need a Certain GPA to Apply to Medical School?

Good grades (particularly in prerequisite courses) are essential for gaining admission to medical school, but there is no exact grade point average (GPA) required. That said, the higher your GPA, the better your chances.

Can I Apply to the Same Medical School More Than Once?

Yes, you can apply to the same medical school—including RUSM—more than once. But to be considered for acceptance after a previous rejection, your application should demonstrate improvement in test scores, experience, or other areas.

Does RUSM Offer Scholarships?

Yes, RUSM offers a number of scholarships that are awarded by selection or application.
