    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.

    Honestly, you could be right as well. It is just as likely Windsor set it up and made her lead the whole thing; however, from what hussa109 said previously, after he/she went directly to the apollo office, Apollo itself said they were not associated. Plus the fact that the domain was registered under Natasha's name, at least that is what "bigmistake" previously said. Assuming Windsor was the one who initially started the whole thing and then handed it over to Natasha, she had to at some point realize this program was bogus. She's a shrewd woman and something like that would not slip her eye especially when her job at Windsor required her to be thorough with the details.

    But even giving her the benefit of the doubt and assuming she knew nothing, now she does. Natasha has not reached out to the students that were cheated(extorted really) to rectify the mistake of pushing the program nor to explain what the hell is going on with Apollo now. Honestly I am just annoyed at the fact that the students who got screwed are not receiving any help at all and it has been months, poor things lol.
    so if i am to understand this correctly, apollo is a separate program that natasha tried to partner up with and then she bought a site on the program's behalf and ran a scam using that company's (apollos) name?

    someone should call her at her residency for answers. that badmaash anoosh is in on this scam too, i guarantee it. he set up houston clinicals as well.

    call monee and ask ashley to check your status for sending the verification from windsor's end of your good standing to ecfmg. after they send it, it is only a matter of hours before ecfmg sends you a new permit.

    if you apply today, expect a new permit and three more months period by first week of december.

    on a side note, thanks for all the help PnS11. I've been following you on this forum for a while and very few members actually give legit & helpful advice like you continue to do. Appreciate it!

    Well I mean first, take everything with a grain of salt. The only people who truly know whats going on are the people directly involved ie. natasha, sandeep, etc.

    But yeah, from what I can pull on this forum as well as talking to some of the people who had to deal with this mess directly, that is general consensus; the apollo program was a scam with Natasha leading the way and no one was told damn thing.

    Those two were probably trying to get a cut of the money for sending so many students to the apollo program and giving them business lol.

    i'll bet that is how they got the texas rotations acquired too. all students tuition, a portion is going in their pockets. i can't believe thats where my cash went.
