Abstract: A model $M$is said to be gross if all infinite definable sets in $M$ have the same cardinality (as $M$). We prove that if for some uncountable $\kappa$, $T$ has a unique gross model of cardinality $\kappa$, then for any uncountable $\kappa$, $T$ has a unique gross model of cardinality $\kappa$.
