Happy May! Where has the time gone?? I’ve been busy studying for my Psychiatry shelf and I’m happy the warm weather is here! I’ve got a bunch of new stuff coming soon to the blog, including posts for premeds who will be applying to medical school soon. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out.
Continuing the Match Series, I’m extremely excited (and proud!) to introduce a good friend of mine. Frank studied at Ross, an Caribbean medical school, and matched at his top choice for residency! Keep reading to see where he ended up and how he did it!

What made you decide to apply to Ross? Did you consider other program types?
I did apply to other US medical schools, but I was late in the cycle. I got a handful of interviews, but ultimately was only wait listed. I applied to Ross on a whim, was accepted within 2 weeks, and decided to go. I didn’t want to wait until the following application cycle and I figured an MD is still an MD, no matter where I train.
