    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.

    So here is what I have heard; 3 days of class at some brampton plaza with one day of clinic with a doc thats apparently from st.kitts. In this class, there will be a tutor which is apparently just some windsor student around to help you. For the clinic they said you have to see a minimum of 5 patients and then you can leave if you want to. They said those will count for two rotations. That is a lame excuse for rotations. I am ignoring this and focus on taking the step.

    So from what i have assumed from other people in the similar situation as i am many people are not taking the apollo thing. Some people are some aren't its 50/50. Also students that attended the meeting, majority of them got the email for the apollo program and some people didn't by mistake. Still confusing, but all of this is a wake up call, to get serious and finish with the step. If anyone is taking the apollo program, and reads this, can they please kindly tell us what is it about? Who the tutor is or whats being said... cause many of us are still oblivious to whats happening.

    you need to get all your students who theyre trying to put in this, start a facebook page, agree to the fact that you are under no circumstances gonna let these person who makes babiess force you to take a prep course or something when youve already started your studying, write a letter (not a nice one, make it clear that you arent doing this and the ones well outside of brampton cant do it), and send it to admin. speak to the new dean as well. do whatever you need to do but ignore them when it comes to this and have some cohesion. if none of you sign up for this then tough luck to windsor but if half of you end up signing up then already too late.

    also theres a 'similar thread' link below for this thread and the first one says caution do not use the apollo program ****

    yeah but seriously dont get scammed into doing it

    oh and under no circumstances should you be attenidng these fake rotations even if they say theyll give you hours for them because these might not hold up under a residency aplication so ignore that even more

    The thread about caution don't use apollo, is not the same thing windsor made up this apollo thing.

    I've spoken to 3 other people about apollo and we have decided to ignore this and focus on studying. I would want to know the people who the 25 that confirmed for apollo, and make sure there is a general consensus to not do this apollo thing at all, its to total scam to get us to give the school money for nothing. It was said that natasha will inactivate everyone who does not do this program. Well she better inactivate everyone not just us who have denied apollo.

    its ridiculous, especially if you live no where near Toronto. Not only would you have to spend thousands of dollars on this course, but also need to account for finding an apartment and living expenses for those 3 months

    find the 25 or however many you can and make your intentions clear to the admin together that it's not feasible plus you just arent doing it

    Did anyone receive any other kind of email saying they have to do a self assesment test or something? I called the monee office but they are no help and have no clue, they tell u to talk to dr sandeep or natasha who are incharge of this? I personally know three people including my self the fourth who is not taking the apollo program, its suppose to start next monday to thrusday from 9 to 3. It is ridiculous, waste of money, time and just more stress. I like the idea of the facebook page... or something to reassure that we are okay if we don't attend this prep course.

    But if anyof you did get that other self assesment mail please can you tell me what its about or how to get about it. Thank u.

    think about all the studying you could've gotten done if you didn't waste your time overreacting to this news, especially when multiple people have told you....to start studying and not overreact to this news....

    Google search the term "whois" - this is a service that allows you to see who owns a website/company and when they registered it. When you get to the site enter Apollomed.org

    Visiting this website tells you that Apollomed.org was created on May 26, 2015 LOL and registered by Natasha.


    I would post links or screenshots, but my account is too new.

    Them providing credits for coursework is also illegal in Canada without proper approval, that probably won't go down too well.
