    The Dangerous effect of schools like CMU

    Advertisements



    One side of this entire situation that is dangerous and always neglected is what happens when these types of schools cannot deliver on their promise of assisting a student to become a licensed practicing doctor in the US.
    Dreams and futures are shattered when students do not realize their goals and on top of that an incredible amount of financial debt is accumulated. They may not have a chance to pay it back if they cannot realize that goal. A life-long burden no one should have to bear.
    A student who attends a school that does not adequately prepare them for exams may end up failing or because of the institution they are not able to become licensed. Words cannot explain the devastation that could become their reality.
    These institutions need to think about these things before they try this get-rich-quick scam or spring up everywhere like mushrooms.

    You would think that any student who would commit to these type of school will research all aspects of the school and its education first. That way at least they know what they are getting into. But I doubt that a lot of student at schools like cmu weight out the goods against the bads. They believe what they are told or what they want to believe rather than looking at facts. And to be honest If somebody who doesn't have the ability to make the right decision based on all the facts and evidence doesn't deserve to be a doctor in the first place. After all isn't thats what being a doctor is all about?

    Which is the entire reason for the controversy here.......

    A school without the proper credentials cannot get people licensed, and they cannot practice.

    how come there is so many multiple account out there? i think vmd should change their policy and give each person personal id through school or something before the forum becomes a joke. as i was going through cmu treads there was so many post that was made by mutple account users it makes you think that vmd really doesn't care. come on make your forum legit and get rid of these multiple account users. its funny when i joined yesterday someone said that have a another account. that should tell you something. anyone that post something that is half way bais everyone start yelling that this person has multiple account. well better get back to studying.

    Dunno. Actually,as an AUC student, the faculty joke about valuemd and do not tend to post on the forums. They have students without better things to do to with their time to smear the facts about their schools all around the valuemd forums. I would hope students do research on their schools prior to investing time and money; however, there are always people who do not pay attention to all the details, or attend hoping for the best (going with that pioneer spirit).

    Personally, I use valuemd as a good source of reference. If I want to find some real information, I use the hyperlinks that are provided by different members to find out more information about things such as state laws, 5th pathway and other important information. Valuemd is more like a portal for me and I do not rely on it for solely for trustworthy information.

    those with multiple accounts on "black listed" IPs are automatically banned after a few posts or so, sometimes immediately. other users are investigated and banned in that regard.

    i don't think it would be a good idea to have a personal ID through school...many users like to keep personal information like that on the DL, others transfer from school to school and people may not even know it. besides, i think our system works pretty well right now. any user you suspect is a multiple-account user, report it and we'll investigate.
