This may be a bit different from other, step oriented posts, but I think it's important in terms of how we perceive this service:

 

Do you have any future plans for this tutoring website? You said you were an M4, so you don't have much time until you leave for residency, right? I can't say I know Alyssa's future plans, so I'm wondering why she put so much work into web development, etc when this is most likely going to be a one shot, one year "hop in hop out" sort of thing?

This is a great question. I’m actually on a research year until June 2019 (I have a weird schedule where I finished almost all of 4th year before starting on research). I’m actually planning to continue the company throughout residency and beyond. Although I disagree with many of Alec from Yousmle’s strategies (though we agree on the importance of making your own Anki cards), he is an example of someone who has continued a tutoring company during residency (albeit one that charges $375 an hour for individual tutoring).

 

I feel there really needs to be an alternative to Yousmle, Med School Tutors, and Med School Coach, who charge over $250 an hour and pay tutors only a small fraction of that. They also offer no guidance or quality control, whereas we have extensive tutoring guidelines and supportive communication between all the tutors in our group.

 

We have had a wonderful response so far and are in the process of adding several tutors to meet demand. Our eventual goal is to create a program that provides subsidized tutoring to need-based financial aid recipients, as I feel it is not fair for only the relatively wealthy to be able to receive tutoring. I already do this for a few students I knew before starting the company, and am hoping to expand it as the company grows. This free advice forum is in the spirit of that goal.

    Respected sir/madam , I’m actually half done with my FA not yet started UW but with my current pace it will take around 6 months more honestly to finish FA+UW but I’m constantly getting anxious whenever I saw P/F going to happen from this January is there a way for me finish step 1 before P/F thing to achieve the score of 250? Or should I continue with my pace and have to wait for official news? I’m super confused I’ll be happy if you can help me to get out of this situation? thank you.

    I am a currently a third year who is finishing my second last rotation on June 14th, then I have a 2 week break followed by my obgyn core rotation until July 26. I have two weeks after my obgyn rotation when I have it off and I am taking my step 2 on aug 9th and level 2 on aug12th. I have been doing uworld during 3rd year here and there. I had a few questions regarding how to proceed further: 1) Would it be beneficial to create a test for all the wrong questions on uworld vs going through the flashcards on uworld which has their tables.  2) Should I do the second pass on uworld by resetting only after addressing the wrong questions first? 3) During my two week break, would it be a good strategy to a dedicate two full days for reading the step2ck book or watching OMED videos or DIT videos ? Is it best to use these resources when I get a question wrong instead of just reading them for the sake of completing it.

    Hi- I was wondering if you could advise on how to find reputable explanations to the new NBME tests. I have taken 18 and 20 and I am just making a google doc with information about questions I have missed. I have found some information on 18 but very little for form 20. Also just curious on your thoughts about a 243 score on UWORLD practice test #1. I am only about 30% through UWORLD questions and was just wondering if that was a trusted score. Thanks!
