Thumbs Up From a Score of 156 to 222

Kicked out of a US medical school for failing Step I USMLE 3 times, I have finally passed with 222 in the carribean. My highest score was 156; my previous scores were 144 and 148. The US school I attended didn't give me a 4th chance so I transferred to AUA School of Medicine and did the 5th semester and then took the USMLE K.O. Review program in Atlanta (http://usmleko.com).

This course offered me everything; and their notes was key to me passing. I got close to 90% of my exam questions from the K.O. Program notes. Of course there were questions on the test that you couldn't have read about anywhere but that was in the minority.

I took the USMLE K.O. 3-week course and then studied the notes about 10 weeks after; knew the material cold and did USMLE World. World helped prepare me well but it was more challenging than the actual test, which is good. If you can handle World you can do the real test. My only regret is I studied the big stuff and overlooked some petty petty basics that caused me points because I thought they were too easy to appear on the real thing, but there it was.

Anyway I made it and I'm happy.

Umm, yeah. Failed Step 1 three times, kicked out of US med school, and then 222 on Step 1 = very little chance of matching in any residency. And why would someone join a Step 1 prep forum specifically to post this? Total spam...it's so deceitful when companies do this sort of thing.
