    Usmle APOLLO review course? More time to write step!!!

    So does any one here except for me know whats actually going on, people who attended the meeting in brampton on may 23rd got a email saying we have to register THIS weekend in this apollo program and start attending by monday. WTH!!!! (excuse my launguage)

    I thought attending the meeting and talking to the doctors one on one would help me out, sending my nbme scores to them would show them i am serious and just need more time. And now i have to pay for this apollo program/ electives for 12 weeks so I can take the step by September!!!!! HOW? WHY?

    I know people who finished md 5 in april 2014 and January 2014.... they have not finished there step and are still preparing for WHAT ever reason.... they aren't in the situation i am in....

    Who do i talk to? Where am I suppose to get that kind of money? Please if you guys have any opinions regarding this matter do comment so i can get a insight.

    september 30th is plenty of time. sign up for becker, pass program, or kaplan and get it done by then. i know students that have done pass and found it to be very good and said it was better than kaplan and becker as well. do that instead of apollo. i will get in touch with someone i know that took pass recently and see fi they can post ther experiences.

    there are no "doctors" at windsor. stop referring to them as such. it is people waiting for residency or people that have tried for years and have not gotten it so they have taken a desk job at a diploma mill that is windsor. do not take their advice seriously on how to study and just take the prep program and take the exam.

    the exception is natasha who is a student, so her opinion is valid, however other admin members are there to catch the money falling from your pockets

    I just received an email from apollo saying its clinical experience and in class facilities for $3600 and you can add PASS program for $400. It said it will go through all the subjects and individually look at your strength and weaknesses.

    pass program is in illinois or florida or something. not in brampton. this must be pirated videos they are giving for $400. the program is much more than that, usually in the thousands. similar to becker.

    sounds like you students are being taken for a ride with apollo and all this other trash. time to start petitioning and protesting these changes. it doesn't sound fair at all.

    Yea I agree, thing is I don't know anyone who has been contacted by apollo, those I know who got the initial email about this apollo thing choose to ignore it and not get the confirmation from windsor. Windsor did say in this email that if you do not do that 12 week thing you cannot get your extension till September 30. Is there anyone is doing this apollo thing?? Because is this turns out to be complete crap, which knowing windsor is not a surprise, then I'd wanna know other people who are denying this 12 week thing.

    put your head in the ground like an ostrich and ignore it and just do your work and take it before 9/30. its that simple.

    Honestly, many people that i know got the email are also ignoring it... for financial reasons, and thinking from a logical perspective whats happening to students living in Vaughan or Oshawa are they gonna come down to Brampton to take this program??? NO they wouldn't.

    Maybe by tomorrow we will see or get a better understanding of what the others are doing.

    But guys I know we've heard of many stories.. but does anyone know if someone ACTUALLY got dismissed... or faced horrible consequences? Cause when i attended the meeting, I even saw people who finished md5 in 2013 and stuff and I am sure everyone has their own personal issues... but how true is the "your files will be dismissed", I mean who has the authority Dr natasha or Dr Sandeep?
