* Failed Step 2 CS Philly
  amikacin - 12/15/17 13:14
  Hello everyone....I am devastated to find out that I failed the exam. Gave a couple of IVs already with all positive feedback from the PDs. Now I don't think I will be able to find another date within this year to write the exam as the last day is Dec 31.
I failed the CIS section and I couldn't believe it as I have always been told that I have good interpersonal skills/ bedside manners etc.
Also spoke to ECFMG and they said they will try to expedite the process of getting the permit within 3 business days but there is no guarantee. Even if I do get the permit, I still have to get the exam date in December.
I would really appreciate your advice as to how to go about dealing with this. I am an IMG.

  Update: Gave my exam in Atlanta. I was very lucky to get a date few minutes after getting the permit. Felt more confident this time, SPs were more genuine/ cooperative and was able to finish all my PEs and Notes on time. Obviously, I made mistakes and forgot to ask some questions but I counseled/summarized/ explained the findings in the end for all the cases. Also asked if they had any questions for me. I left the center feeling much better than last time. Also wished every patient "Happy holidays" before leaving the room. I hope I pass this time. Thank you everyone for the support.
@Morticia- thank you. I have seen your other posts and have noticed your willingness to help people in this forum. Seems like you are a great human being and I pray you get everything you wish for.

  Yes, houstoncstutor and houstoncsprep tutor is a liar and conartist I also took private training class AT THE PARK INN HOTEL I WAS TRICKED by this crooked tutor, uses multiple user ids to offer tutoring crap to students that dont really need it
last user id he is using is houston-cstutor or houstoncsprep he is a fake conartist scammer tutor that makes a living ripping off students in the Park inn he is a total liar and had stole over $400 dollars from me without even showing up to my room, he gave first session free to sucker you in, then he will charge you a good deal then never show up for services, he is also a accented IMG with multiple USMLE failures on multiple attempts thats why he is doing this
Please stay away from tutors that try to teach off other peoples notes or other sources they will offer you free first time then rob you blindlLY AFTER

  I also had the same experience this houstoncs-prep tutor guy this heinous lowlife individual is a LIAR he also makes negative remarks towards good classes like kaplan so he can make money off of you. He has nothing better to do than teach off other courses copyrighted material
he is ripping off poor students and he also scammed me, I definitely do not recommend taking training from this thief he is a scam and IMG trying to teach off kaplan notes, definitely do not recommend this fool

  Never take any training from a USMLE tutor that is competing with you for residency spots
I failed after taking sessions from CS tutor houstoncs-prep and more online CS tutors, they are useless and just want you to fail so they can have a better chance`

  There are several criminal tutors online that are scamming people on various forums, they take money from them and never come online for services and they never show up to train people if they are giving private training
never give your money to a usmle tutor they are directly competing with you for residency spots and they want you to fail so they can have a better chance to get in ,
this happened to me and I found out that the person tutoring me failed USMLE 3 times.
please choose only established companies and established people that helped your friends pass.
You cannot trust the pathetic people that starts teaching off someone else's intellectual property and materials they have no basis to teach or credentials and no accreditation
Be very careful when you prepare for the USMLE avoid all tutors if you can
