    Important Read This: Warning to incoming Windsor students!

    Advertisements



    I want to warn all new windsor students. Right now on the island the school is screwing everyone over on thier exams. They are giving exams that have nothing to do with the course material learned in class. For example, Histology is getting pharm and path on it. Many times these exams contain elements which you have not covered, ppl taking histo in MD2 have no idea about pharm and path which are upper level courses. Right now the classes are petitioning the exams. If this continues no one has hope of passing any of the classes and will either have to repeat a semester or pay extra to take the exam again. This also will possibly apply to any new students coming in. Please be warned of this! And no I am not kidding.

    Sounds like something Gonewithwind would write?

    I think they are out to fail you...It would be a good idea to transfer!

    Please pass that on to the other 500 students on the island that are facing the same problem. Im sure they would all like to transfer too, but its highly unlikely that any other school would even take our credits. Im very sure that if you were facing the issue you would not be mocking it! Its not about retakes, its about what we are facing at finals time. Whether your taking the exam for the first time or doing a retake, the fact remains that the exams are unfair. And if the trend does not change, it will affect everyone - retakes or not, at the end of the year. You may think its funny and dramatic, but it really isn't. The fact is that the s**t hit the fan and people here are very upset. And its not just one or two people, its pretty much everyone down here. The transfer exams have been no different. All in all, if your are not down here experiencing it, please don't mock those who are having to deal with it. I'm writing about this because poeple should know what is going on down here, cause if i would have known, I would have made other arrangements. You don't know until you actually arrive here what your facing!

    I think you are mocking the real students that actually study and pass classes. There are hundreds before you and there will be hundreds after you. Please do not be so dramatic...

    Transfer students are "Bad News" sure there are some good ones. But, this is why many schools do not accept them. The "same song and dance" at every school they go to. Every school forum has these thread by transfer students...MUA, AUA, SMU, UMHS, ROSS and so on.... I'm sick of students not taking responsibility.

    First, thing most transfer students do is try to find old test papers. Then they party all semester and FAIL the final. Time for the "Fail and Blame song and dance." Over and over again...sad!

    I hope Windsor will soon stop accepting transfers.

    I studied and passed at a real med school! So lets just clear that up. The only reason I transfered to Windsor is because the tuition was cheap and my federal loans gave out and I needed a school I could get by paying for out of pocket. I took the shelf exam, and that wasn't as rediculous as what is going on at windsor. So please, exucuse me for be "dramatic". Im only assuming ur a windsor grad or something along those lines and have not gone through the system at any other school, so I'll forgive for your ignorance. I have passed everything at windsor, I never took a retake - I took a transfer exam! They not only screwed me but they screwed other ppl either transfering in or taking retakes, or just simply having to take the exam because they had to leave early because of illness or whatever. The consensus is the same. In the future, take time to consider the truth of the statements being made. What I am posting is not completely absurd, it is what is happening here. This has never happened in the previous semesters, yes I agree, but were are not talking about the past. If things were the same I wouldn't be on here arguing my point with someone who is obviously too narrowed minded to except that this is actually happening! Believe it or not I really have better things to do with my time - but I think this matter deserves more attention then it is getting on this site. Its a real problem! You haven't experienced this therefore you have no right no pass judgement on this matter. Please, contact other Windsor students that are here on the island right now and they will say the same thing to you as I am posting here on this site. You cannot say that I simply don't study when you actually don't know who I am or where I have come from. I suggest you save your judgements for yourself and people you know.

    [quote=windsor1234;1051863]I studied and passed at a real med school!

    So I'm guessing that this is a Fake medical school and yet you can't pass the exams at Windsor.

    So lets just clear that up. The only reason I transfered to Windsor is because the tuition was cheap and my federal loans gave out and I needed a school I could get by paying for out of pocket.

    Federal loans so your from ROSS?


    I took the shelf exam, and that wasn't as rediculous as what is going on at windsor.

    So please, exucuse me for be "dramatic". Im only assuming ur a windsor grad or something along those lines and have not gone through the system at any other school, so I'll forgive for your ignorance. I have passed everything at windsor, I never took a retake - I took a transfer exam!They not only screwed me but they screwed other ppl either transfering in or taking retakes, or just simply having to take the exam because they had to leave early because of illness or whatever.

    Well you mentioned 500 others that were screwed as well. That's being dramatic. So, basically everyone got screwed...very very dramatic!

    The consensus is the same. In the future, take time to consider the truth of the statements being made. What I am posting is not completely absurd, it is what is happening here. This has never happened in the previous semesters, yes I agree, but were are not talking about the past. If things were the same I wouldn't be on here arguing my point with someone who is obviously too narrowed minded to except that this is actually happening! Believe it or not I really have better things to do with my time - but I think this matter deserves more attention then it is getting on this site. Its a real problem! You haven't experienced this therefore you have no right no pass judgement on this matter.

    Yes, I have had my fun of 5 semester of Transfer students from "Real" medical schools complaining. I have plenty of experience with transfers to pass judgment.

    Please, contact other Windsor students that are here on the island right now and they will say the same thing to you as I am posting here on this site. You cannot say that I simply don't study when you actually don't know who I am or where I have come from. I suggest you save your judgements for yourself and people you know.

    Please, your buddies who failed with you are no better.
