    Thanks very much for this! Do you think the book list given by houmd in the sticky still applies to all courses?

    good post, sounds like Windsor has made a LOT of improvements from when I was on the island. I've never heard of an online payment system though

    ruse, while it is a very well written analysis of the school, you are still in md4 and you are still writing retakes from md3. while that may not change your perception of the courses, you definitely lack credibility when speaking to incoming students regarding these courses.

    do you judge whether a movie is good or not even before the halfway point? that is what you are doing in regards to windsor, considering you still have not passed md3 but are sitting in md4 with about 6 or 7 exams to clear before the end of the semester. otherwise, you will not be starting md5 next semester either.

    you still have clinical years to go through. you still have to see how windsor handles clinical rotations and exams, yet you are suggesting potential candidates to step right up and walk in. like i said, this is your analysis after passing only two semesters (technically) when there are still 8 more semesters.

    someone that has more credibility because he is one of the most active graduates of basic science from windsor is houmd. someone that is almost done with clinicals and applying for the match and can comment on his clinical experiences, as well as his basic science experiences. while windsor has made changes, the only major one is the addition of NBME exams, which he did not take. and said NBME exams are the exams that almost everyone failed in every course this past two semesters.

    also, you have been on the island for a year and a month, if you are only in md4 now. not a year and a half as you claim.

    i'm not trying to berate you, but i don't think you, or anyone, can vouch for windsor until you are matched. while most of the work is done on your part, you mentioned accreditations and clinical sites, and windsor is severely lacking in those departments as of late. students are taking over two years to write the Step and the school is ok with that.

    do yourself one more favor, request a username change if you still decide to keep this guide up. admin, aka your professors, browse these forums very frequently. having personal information within your username is very ill-advised and is basically walking around campus with a target on your back from the professors.

    one final thing regarding you pleading the fifth on knowledge of old exams being used by students, there is a rumor that it was you that had gathered all the exams from all the semesters and turned them in to the exam controller himself on a hard drive, after one of your classmates was caught looking at the prior to an exam. i think it's a bit of a shame that you would stoop to that level, especially when you just called that other poster "immature" for "laughing at you" when in reality you know you have built some enemies by doing what you supposedly did.

    i really hope you think this through again and maybe make a post in a few years when you match, instead of before even completing MD3.

    good day
