Hey! I took my test in Philly this April. I found all the SPs were nice and responsive. There were also a quarter of examinees IMGs. Although my result's still pending, I highly recommend to take the test in Philly. I've heard some surprises in other centers but mine was smoothly. Best luck!

Hi usmledreamer,
I recently took CS at Philly and I would like to tell you that the general idea about IMG friendly centers are completely false. It is a standardized exam for a reason. Do not give in to all this hype. I too thought that Houston and Chicago are the easiest to pass but that is all bull****. Prepare hard. I went to the USMLEGOLDREVIEW course in NY. I chose it because:
1. The dates suited me. (ideally take it 10 days prior to your exam)
2. It was a convenient location for me
3. It isn't that expensive as compared to Kaplan

Remember as long as you cover most of the questions and are friendly you are golden. I would advice you to take the exam where you have a place to stay and study in peace as opposed to going to a place for the first time and figuring things out after you get there.

This is just my 2 cents but its upto you to decide as it is your life and this is a very demanding exam.

Regards and all the best!!

Default Step 2cs sp

Two years flew by. School's out. Now its time for you to sit through an 9 hour exam -- Step 2cs of the USMLE. It doesn't matter what you think you know. All you really know is that you don't know enough. My name is Ricky and I'm a Step-2cs tutor. I've been there, done that and gotten the t-shirt. I've been tutoring for the past few years and I'm very passionate about my job. You know I can help you because I used to BE you. I know what you're feeling. I understand your doubts and apprehensions. I will give you the knowledge, strategy and above all, the confidence to sit for the Step-2cs examination. I use online meetings (Becker/Kaplan style) to offer both written and live instruction, guiding you through your preparation at your personal pace. Included are my personal notes and anytime help via skype.
