Default CS Success Story - GoldUSMLEREVIEW- SOAPMatch

First of all I am a Saint Georges Student who was brought up in New York, Staten Island. I am Italian and one of the first upcoming doctors in my family. With that said I would like to share my story Everyone I am here to write to you all to let you know of an Amazing course I took that made the IMPOSSIBLE...POSSIBLE FOR ME and I cannot thank Dr. Azerrad and Dr. Farooqi from GoldUSMLEReview enough for everything they have done, I am eternally grateful. Seriously do not know what I would have done without these Doctors at my side. The professionalism and the knowledge that was demonstrated and taught at this course is INDISPENSABLE. I have incorporated the basics and mechanics taught into my everyday life. and even after the course they still keep in touch with you to see how everything is going and if anything extra is needed they will do their best to help!
So here we go - My Story - I had originally took the Step 2 CK October 1st, with my Step 2 CS October 13th of 2014 using FIRSTAID and student partners from Work/School - I felt pretty good.
Differential Diagnosis were very fresh in my mind. I took my first exam in Philadelphia confidently...but my result was unexpected, I FAILED the ICE portion. My Results came back to me December 4th...I was absolutely DEVASTATED, this meant I could not be a part of the match for 2015 and getting residency was going to be a painful...long... road for me. I Re-registered for January 21st in hopes to have my score back in time for SOAP like my Clinical Adviser told me to do. BUT I was at a loss of what else to do!!! How to study!?!!? I didn't know what to change? I could not believe I failed in the first place!!!!! Angry and upset..I analyzed and decided to move forth. I went back to basics and studied FIRSTAID to the tee!!!
Lucky for me my Coworker on my elective told me about GOLDUSMLE and they took me in right away after hearing my story. We stayed all day Friday and discussed the interviewing portion down to its core, history gathering and how it should be properly done. The 2nd day was another full day and when I say full it was from [8'oclock to 7 or 8'oclock at night] - We went over each system and physicals piece by piece, practice over practice and shown pitfalls in our own approach to adjust accordingly. Lastly Sunday another full day, A Mock Exam where we had 5 hours of patient feedback in what they saw as we moved from room to room. The best performer gets a Golden Stethoscope award. Which I received!! After all this we did patient notes over and over until 8 PM when we were finally let out, but it was amazing.
I took my Exam January 21st in Atlanta Georgia, and going through this exam..I could just feel the difference in my performance from October, after being in bootcamp with the doctors and the guidance of GoldUSMLEReview. My Result...Well!!! I officially passed!!!! Just found out Last week March 4th 2015!!, Happy as can be!!!! I am eligible for the SOAP MATCH!!!! Participated in the SOAP match and got myself a Radiology Advanced Placement Residency!!!!!!!!
Thank you again Dr. Azerrad and Dr. Farooqi, It truly was a pleasure and thank you for being the key I needed to get me to this point to where I am today. I Recommend GoldUSMLEReview to EVERYONE!!! I wouldn't be where I am today without them.
- Sincerely, Michael -MSY4- Soon to be Radiology Resident 2016
