    Hello,
    I got accepted to the BTMD 2017 program but I am having a hard time finding a loan that will cover the cost. How are you covering the cost of tuition?

    Buyer beware. Those who are in are looking to get out and you wanna dive in. Retake some courses and your mcat and apply broadly to DO schools please.. Every carribean medical school is a gamble.

    I see you posted on your class facebook page about AUA and carribean med schools. You don't wanna listen. I wish we listened before starting this gamble. Even if it takes you four years to get into a US DO or med schools, you would thank me for this advice. Some people start med school in their late 40's. You are still young and will do yourself good by avoiding the misery of Carribean med schools

    Hi I just got accepted as well. I been reading a lot about the program. There are some negative comments (all form peiple who didn't pass) but all comments from ppl who pass said is a really good prep for MD1 term. It is extremely hard and only few pass the program. For what I read, only 20% will pass the program, but this is not official (is from what I read form blogs) so please don't take my word for it. On Monday I will be calling AUA and get more info. There is an AUA blog that students who pass the class started I I thought it was a good read.

    Hi everyone! Just going to give you guys some insight as a current BTMD student.

    - BTMD is incredibly difficult, all of us are using USMLE study resources to try and do well in the classes
    - This program is not structured like a "bridge" these are medical school difficulty classes without the medical school resources to help you do well in them - you must teach yourself quite a bit
    - There are 3 classes: Physiology, Biochemistry, and Neuroscience
    - Passing for a class is 65, but you must pass the program with a 70 average overall (meaning you need to score higher in some classes - you can't make 65's across the board)
    - Averages for the Physiology final was in the 40's, average for the Biochem finals was in the 50's, and I have not taken my neuro final yet.
    - The program costs $12K, you will not find a student loan or scholarship for this program since it is unaccredited (you receive no academic credit) so you have to take a bank loan, use bank credit, saved up money, etc.
    - There is an option for a payment plan of 4K each, with payments within 30 days of one another.

    If I am being honest, I would not recommend this program to anyone. Ross has a similar program, if you fail the Ross program you are offered a refund of your tuition. If you fail this program you can retake it for another $2K, but no refund of your original payment.

    Quite honestly, it's not worth the money. Even if I pass this program (which I believe I will) I would not recommend this program to anyone until it receives some infrastructural changes.

    Books

    Would u recommend other books beside the ones they recommend?? When I spoke with AUA and asked what was the percent of people passing the course they said 90%. Would you say this is not accurate ? Thank u for the post !!

    The BRS (Board Review Series) books, and Pretest Books for practice questions. You can find PDF's of them online if you look hard enough - so don't waste your money on them (in all truth don't waste your money on this program if you can help it - it needs work).

    AUA isn't really connected to the program, BTMD students get fed into their school; but its run and operated by a separate organization/entity it seems. So I'm not surprised they don't know that 90% isn't accurate in the slightest. We've been told about 40-50% of students end up passing and moving forward. My class size was about 30 people, and I believe there are 25 of us left (a few withdrew). That means if statistics hold then only 10-12 of us will move forward.

    In your class, how many students do you think will actually pass the program?
