    Can I ask why you had a change of heart? From your previous post it looked like you were supporting the school. What went wrong?

    Wiser Now

    I did more research on the school, including talking to students outside the orchestrated atmosphere of IAU. Moreover, I learned than those people in Dallas don't have a single honest bone in their bodies.

    You are right. They will never reveal the true information. All I know the passing rate of USMLE step 1 is between 20-30% for IAU (varies depending upon the average IQ of the batch).

    They will tell you about the high NBME board exam passing rate but will never tell you about their extremely generous cure.

    I find it amusing that "Crane" has completed an anthropology review to conclude that we dont have any "honest" bones in our bodies. Your animosity towards the Dallas staff makes me wonder whether you are an ex-IAU student who got kicked out of school. And I sincerely hope that you are not a school official at some other school, because that is going to reflect bad on our profession. Either ways I could care less for your opinions here and please dont even bother to respond.

    The staunch MUA supporter "deepk"'s assertions that our USMLE passrate is 20-30%, is totally baseless. Even though I must agree that the ability to pass the USMLE depends on the degree of preparation that a student undertakes. Not what school he/she attends.

    Our current passrate for the Step 1 is around 68% and for the Step 2 is over 85%. These passrates are based on the number of students whom we certified with ECFMG to date.

    Percentage does not make sense until you tell us the raw numbers.

    "85 % of what number cleared their step 2?"

    As Jim Rohn rightly said “The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”

    So let me have my laugh and remind you that this is the most humane it will get in valuemd, with a name, email address and phone number for other humans to verify my humanity

    To date, 13 out of 15 students certified with ECFMG have successfully completed the USMLE Step 2 CK & CS.

    I don't understand why is everyone bashing the admins? Specifically Crane and deepk, do you guys have concrete facts to back up your assertions about the school and it's administration? Otherwise it just seems like trolling.
