I would like to congratulate Marlene for successfully passing the USMLE Step 1 with a score of 88/213 which she took last March 27, 2009. She is part of the first batch of enrollees in my prep course for USMLE Step 1 which started last September, 2008. For those who were visiting the blog since last August, you will recall her ardently arguing for a position in the course. Well she finally made it.
When Marlene first came to me, I was actually taken aback. She graduated way back in 1997. Failed Step 1 multiple times even after taking courses. Could I really help her pass it this time? As we all “know”, OLD grad + Multiple failures = basket case. However, the purpose of setting up this course was to help those who need the help most and she would certainly qualify. She promised me that she will study hard if I will help her pass the USMLE. Well, I guessed we kept both ends of our deal.
For those who want to find out more. She has written her exam and prep experience in my forum at http://forums.askdoc-usmle.com. The prep course is set up to help you raise your scores. By how much, depends on how hard you are willing to study.
