___________________________________

COMES NOW, Nausheen Zainulabeddin, Pro Se, pursuant to Fed. R.

App. P. 27(a)(4) files Reply in response to Appellee’s opposition to

Appellant’s motion sanctions, with Appellee’s request for sanctions or other

appropriate relief.

RELEVANT BACKGROUND

1. Appellant has set forth relevant procedural history in depicted form in

Exhibit 1 of this motion.

2
2. On August 21, 2017; Appellant conferred with opposing counsel via

e-mail that she is planning on including FOIA Response from US

Department of education, Office of civil rights regarding her

complaint, Investigation and appeal from March 20, 2014 to

December 16, 2015 for OCR Case no. 04-14-2321 and 04-14-2487.

Appellant stated that she needs extension, because there has been a

delay from FOIA response, but she was stated that it will be sent by

the end of August 2017. She also stated that she prefers to include her

FOIA response in her brief with respect to judicial economy, since

USCA for the Federal Circuit ruled on the merits of the case, but

denied jurisdiction on July 27, 2017. Appellant’s intent was to not file

a Petition for Writ Certiorari to the US Supreme Court and resolve the

collateral issue stated and approved in her in forma pauperis

application for her appeals to this court. The relevant documents were

included in her in forma pauperis application at the district court

(granted under federal question jurisdiction).

3. On August 23, 2017; Appellee accepted her seven-day extension to

file her Appendix.

3
4. On October 2, 2017, Appellee filed motion to strike Appellant’s brief

for incorporating FOIA response in her opening brief.

5. On October 10, 2017, Appellant filed an amended brief (excluded

FOIA Response) and response to their motion for sanctions.

6. On October 31, 2017; the court denied motion for sanctions and

granted her amended brief.

7. Appellee filed their Reply brief and Supplemental appendix, on

11/30/17 and 12/07/17, respectively.

8. Appellant did not receive Appellee’s supplemental appendix within

specified time.

9. Appellant filed her reply brief on December 28, 2017 by retrieving the

supplemental appendix via pacer.gov and filed a motion to file reply

brief out of time.

10. This court granted her motion to file reply brief out of time on

3/01/2018.

11. On February 13, 2018 at 1:12 p.m. EST (duration of call relatively

one minute); Appellant called the case manager, Mr. Caruso regarding

a question if she should file a motion to this court requesting a

4
permission to file a supplemental brief for an injunctive relief

(Appellant’s preference due to context of her case) or should she

simply file a motion for injunction. The Case manager, Mr. Caruso

responded that filing a motion for injunction relief is sufficient (figure

1).

Figure 1. Phone call to Case Manager, Mr. Caurso regarding motion for

injunction versus supplemental brief.

12. Appellant had planned to file supplemental brief which would be

appropriate due to type-volume limitations, intervening case law, and

her pending suit at the federal court of claims that is directly related to

5
this case. Therefore, Appellant filed time-sensitive motion for

enlargement of motion for type-volume limitation on March 13, 2018.

Appellant mailed the motion via USPS Priority mail, that contains

additional service of redirecting the motion while it is in transit. This

court considers the motion is not filed until it is received by the court.

And due to the fact the motion is a time-sensitive, and directly related

to her case pending at the Federal Court of Claims. In fact, she had

received a two-week extension to file her Motion to Dismiss at the

Federal Court of Claims for that reason as stated in her motion (copy

of judge order was included). Thus, the time-sensitive motion would

be moot if the motion is not ruled on by the court within seven days.

13. On March 19, 2018, Appellant conferred with the counsel of why they

had not responded to her time-sensitive motion since 3/10/18. She

also stated, that by now, her time-sensitive motion is moot since it had

to be ruled on by the court within seven business days. Thus, she

stated an in her e-mail to opposing counsel which can be construe as

her intent to simply withdraw the motion since it is moot. Regardless,

6
the Appellee filed a response to her motion, which was unnecessary

(Exhibit 2).

14. Appellant mailed her response on March 23, 2018 and was filed at

this court on March 26, 2018. She filed her response to motion to

dismiss on March 28, 2018.

ARGUMENT

Appellant’s motion is time-sensitive because as stated in her original

motion for enlargement; that she intends to seek preliminary injunction

for reinstatement to medical school as a rising third year medical student

(Figure 2). The motion is time sensitive, which can be further understood

with respect to USF MCOM’s substantive policy. In 2014, nearly one

year from her dismissal from medical school in 2013; Appellant initiated

petition for readmission proceeding (Exhibit 3). She conferred and

requested the Vice Dean, Interim Dean and then subsequently new Dean

of USF MCOM from February 2014 to May 2014; if she can file petition

for readmission on the date that was stated to her by former Vice Dean,

Dr. Monroe in her meetings from July to September 2013. She was stated

that she could file petition for readmission by Dr. Monroe on March 14,

7
2013 (i.e. one year from original dismissal date), and thus would enable

her to start third year with the new class (Exhibit 3).

Figure 2. USF MCOM tentative 3rd year start date.

The new Vice Dean, Dr. Bognar stated that based on his interpretation of

the policy in the USF MCOM Handbook, she can file for petition for

readmission on March 14, 2013 as the former Vice Dean had suggested.

However, Dr. Bognar suddenly changed his position and stated she can

file her Petition for Readmission on May 28, 2014 (i.e. from the last day

of internal grievance proceeding, 5/28/13). The sudden change of date,

8
caused unsurmountable hardship and further exacerbated by the sudden

dismissal in 2013 and administrative error relevant to the complaint of

this suit. The new Vice Dean stated the new change of date, causing

additional three-month delay was due to alternative policy interpretation

by Dr. Steven Specter and also Registrar, Ms. Cook. As early as March

2014; she had provided all relevant documents to the new Vice Dean that

will be presented in support of her petition for readmission. She also

stated verbally and also via writing to ensure that Dr. Steven Specter has

no association, knowledge or interference with her Petition proceedings

due to conflict of interest situation. Nevertheless, as evident by defendant

misconduct during discovery proceeding at the district court, i.e.

withholding production of relevant documents. The registrar forwarded

all of her communications regarding her petition for readmission

proceedings to Dr. Specter stating “FYI” (A-1617 to 1622) (Exhibit 3,

Figure 3, 4, 5). Appellant was given confirmation by Dr. Bognar that Dr.

Specter will have no involvement in the last administrative remedy

available to her, thus she did not want him to deprive her of due process

by abusing his power.

9
Figure 3. E-mail to Dr. Bognar and Registrar instructing that Dr. Specter
involvement in Petition for Readmission proceedings will be conflict of
interest situation. And confirmation that he will not have any
involvement.

Figure 4. FYI to Dr. Specter, i.e. Conflict of Interest.

11
Figure 5. Dr. Specter interference in Petition for Readmission
proceedings and his “alternative interpretation and thus sudden change in
policy” causing hardship.

12
In one of the meetings with the new Vice Dean, Dr. Bognar, had

instructed Appellant to create a tentative calendar for starting third year

and petition for readmission proceedings. He also gave her insurance that

alternative policy interpretation will not have any impact on her being

able to complete medical school on time; her reinstatement needs to be

granted by June 9, 2014 (Exhibit 6).

Figure 6. Reason for time-sensitive motion for injunctive relief.

13
Regardless, Appellant did not want to be deprived of three months, thus,

she conferred with the Vice Dean regarding the hardship that sudden

change has imposed and he stated she can file her Petition, but may

receive denial (Exhibit 3). On April 22, 2014, the interim dean denied her

request to petition and stated she can file her petition in May 28, 2014.

Appellant discussed with the new vice dean that she did not deserve to be

in a disadvantaged situation in comparison to her peers, due to default;

which in fact, was due to University’s error. Subsequently, the new dean

replaced the interim dean on May 5, 2014, and the new Vice Dean spoke

to the new Dean, Dr. Lockwood to review the interim dean decision. She

was stated to wait until May 28, 2014 (Exhibit 3). The reason Appellant

did not want to start three months later was because it places a student in

a disadvantage situation, deprives the student of their status quo in the

designated class, delay in all future administrative proceedings at school

with respect to the class and will impose hardship and stigma in the

administration. Furthermore, she was unaware of this new petition date,

thus, imposed additional strain on her family with respect to finances,

14
costs and at that time she had to move out of her apartment since her

lease was ending at that time, May 28, 2014 (Exhibit 3).

The time frame and proceedings that was counseled by Vice Dean

regarding Petition for Readmission proceedings, are similar in nature

with respect proceedings for injunctive relief, since the class start date are

the same. Appellee should have replied to Appellant e-mail or filed their

response to the motion within 2-3 business days, because the pressing

motion was contingent court schedule at FCC (Exhibit 7).

15
Figure 7. E-mail to Department of Justice for Case pending at Federal
Court of Claims. Request for extension to file pleading at Eleventh
Circuit. Order granted by Judge of FCC to file forgoing pleading on
March 29, 2018.

16
However, the opposing counsel replied to the motion on the day it

became moot. Though, counsel may have the right as per Eleventh circuit

rules, to respond to a motion within ten business days, as stated in their

motion of opposition. However, appellee did not exercise with due

diligence, reasonable care and respect to the merit of the motion based

the context of the situation. Furthermore, Appellee mocks by filing the

motion on the day the motion becomes moot. Furthermore, additional

stress that Appellant had to endure due to “out of court retaliation”, an

emergency flight to Chicago on March 20, 2018 due to USF FCU

“technical procedures” (i.e. waiting nearly one month and calling her at

calculated time, i.e. when she was leaving out of town, to tell her that she

is liable for accrued towing fees of one month and completely depleting

her financial state, i.e. federal student loans, Exhibit 5). Thus, the fact

Appellee filed the response on the day when the original motion became

moot, primarily due to “technicality”; disrespecting Federal court of

claims proceedings, interfering with alternative court proceeding.

Appellant has stated her intention to withdraw the motion, since it is

moot now. Furthermore, the intent was to deprived her of time to prepare

17
a motion to dismiss at federal court of claims. The court can infer based

on Appellee’s conduct at this court that sanctions should be imposed and

or appropriate relief.

Appellee continues to misrepresents facts and states the argument

regarding the hazard of pursing litigation due to their administrative error

of not disclosing her diagnosis on time for two years. Furthermore, they

consider her due diligence proceeding as “vexatious”; when the

defendant has not responded why facts and evidence relevant to collateral

estoppel, after her dismissal in 2013 was never omitted by her former

counsel and defendant. After her case was dismissed in April 19, 2017;

Appellant took an emergency flight to Tampa, FL and recused her

counsel and filed motion for reconsideration to include pertinent

documents, i.e. Petition for Readmission proceedings from February to

August 2014, and US DOE Investigation from September 2014 to

December 2015 (Exhibit 1).Defendant did consider them relevant since

they are included in the exhibits list in the pretrial order. Furthermore, it

is apparent that they had forced her to submit NBME disability services

application after reviewing her documents and statement; with

18
knowledge that it will be denied and give them the basis as “evidence as

it is included in their exhibit list in pretrial order”. Such argument

became baseless, when Appellant received approval from NBME DS in

April 3, 2017, and thereafter, her transfer school lost accreditation for

ECFMG eligibility on April 13, 2017; and her case was dismissed nearly

1-2 weeks before pretrial conference date, on April 19, 2017.

Furthermore, Appellee joins two unfortunate situations without

foundation, i.e. TIPS Report to Tampa Police for suspicious activities

since pursuing litigation from 2017 to 2018 and her first cousin’s death in

2012. Appellee unprofessional tone and also context of usage of two

separate situations mentioned in her opening brief in August 28, 2017

(cousin’s death) and TIPS report reference in her recent motion filed on

March 26, 2018 is a misrepresentation. As stated in her opening brief, her

29-year old first-cousin had ADHD diagnosis and she could have

benefited from Appellant’s diagnosis if it was revealed to her on time by

the University in 2010. Appellant, or any human for that matter has a

right to know their medical diagnosis, so that they can take appropriate

medications, seek treatment and make recommended adjustments to

19
better manage their condition. If Appellant had known about her

confirmed diagnosis and that she was eligible for disability services, she

could have stated to her family member who was at an at-risk situation.

Her cousin in summer of 2010 was contesting her nursing school status

for reinstatement. Nevertheless, her cousin’s life took a negative turn,

and ultimately led to her suicide in December 7, 2012. It is noteworthy

for the court to know that Defendant used the deaths in her family to

conceal their gross negligence from 2010 to 2012 (Exhibit 4). After her

cousin death, the Doctoring preceptor fabricated her mid-term doctoring

evaluations. In Doctoring Course Director’s deposition; her former

counsel asked Dr. Stock why her midterm evaluations were changed

from passing to failing after the date it was signed. The last day of

midterm evaluation was November 28, 2012; that is the day the students

meet the doctoring preceptor to discuss their evaluations. Thus, a change

after the designate date, without the student’s knowledge is fabrication of

records, Figure 8. During deposition, doctoring course director, Dr. Stock

refused to answer the question regarding fabrication of records. Placed in

a difficult situation; she requested to speak to the counsel represented the

20
University in the middle of the deposition. However, she was not allowed

since it deviates from the court rules and procedures. She subsequently

had no answer for the fabrication of record for the deposition.

Furthermore, as stated to this court, Dr. Stock interfered with her Petition

for readmission proceedings in 2014; preventing her from obtaining her

doctoring evaluations from 2009-2012., stating “no ammunition should

be given to this student”. This was because it would question the

credibility of the fabricated second year midterm evaluation dated

November 28, 2012. Whereas, it would expose the same second-year

midterm evaluation she had passed in her first attempt of second year in

2011 (Exhibit 4, Figure 8 and 9).

21
Figure 8. Comparison of Second year Doctoring Evaluations in 2011-
2012 and fabricated doctoring evaluation in 2012-2012 evaluation after
cousin’s death.

22
Figure 9. Inconsistencies in doctoring evaluations in academic year
2012-2013 (when discovered USF MCOM error of misrepresentation and
cousin’s death) versus evaluations from 2009-2012.

Appellant has the first amendment right to report activities that she

reasonably considers as veiled and personal threats due to hazard of the

vexatious litigation proceedings. She provided relevant documents and

facts for the court; in which one can infer why Appellant is reasonably

concerned of such coded indirect threats. Though, Appellant does not

23
have financial means to expose defendant’s retaliation via surveillance;

however, she can point to unusual coincidences in which it is apparent in

the face that there is presence of “out of court” misconduct by defendant.

Appellant has tried her best to bring to this court the intrinsic fraud that

has led the single-judge court to determine the disposition of her case;

when the constitutionality of a state statute that conflicts with the intent

of Congress of Federal Statute, HEA 1965 for Federal student loans as

per contractual relationship with the United States and relevant evidence

that was deceptively omitted by defendant and stonewalled as evident by

Defendant’s conduct in vexatious proceedings.

Conclusion

For the forging reasons and reasons set forth in Appellant’s pleadings

viewed holistically of defendant’s conduct. Appellant pleas this court to

impose sanctions on defendant and other appropriate relief.

24
I declare under penalty of perjury that the forgoing statements is true and

correct

Motions 
Nausheen Zainulabeddin <nausheenkhawaja@gmail.com> Mon, Mar 19, 2018 at 8:45 PM
To: "Mans, Lori" <lmans@constangy.com>

Dear Ms. Mans, 
 
I have not received your intention to file an opposition for a motion to enlargement for the motion that I had intended to
file, i.e. motion for an injunction pending appeal. 
 
The time­sensitive motion that was filed on 3/13/18 (dated 3/10/18), will, in fact, be considered moot since it was not ruled
on by a specified time; i.e. file for a motion for an injunction within 10 days of filing the motion for enlargement. Please let
me know if you intend to object the motion for enlargement if you do not; then I believe the case manager can rule on the
motion if the party does not object to enlargement of the word limit.  
 
Since this is time sensitive as stated in the motion, and I did not receive your intention in regards to objecting the
enlargement of the time­sensitive motion, and the motion pending, filed on 3/13/18. Nevertheless, the motion will be
considered moot by tomorrow, 3/20/18 (since the motion was signed on 3/10/18). 
 
Thus, I plan to file a motion for an injunction within the word limit, 5200, due to time sensitivity, since I have no option and
also since I did not a response from you, within a specified time so that the clerk can rule on an un­objected motion
quickly. 
 
I had planned on updating the case manager regarding your intention as soon as I received your e­mail response (if you
did not have an objection), since the clerk/case manager can rule on unopposed motions that are procedural in nature.
However, I did not receive an e­mail confirming or your intention to object; regarding my intention to enlargement the
motion for 1000 words; the motion could not be ruled on by specified time as it was its purpose, thus, will be moot by
tomorrow. 
 
Nevertheless, please let me know if you had intended to file an objection for enlargement. 
 
Thank you and I apologize in advance for the inconvenience. 
 
Nausheen

8/1/2016 RE: Petition for Readmission (Zainulabeddin, Naus... - Zainulabeddin, Nausheen

Dear Marissa, 
 
The last appeal in May does not affect the timing of the petition.  Dr. Monroe clarified this to me in our last meeting; she
had stated that I would be eligible to apply for readmission from the date of my original dismissal which was March 14th
2013 (at the APRC meeting). I do recall Dr. Specter had stated the same last year. From my understanding and the
guidance I have received; appeals are not an "action of dismissal", but a plead for the original dismissal to be
overturned or sustained. I can not locate my original dismissal letter dated in March of 2013. Is it possible you could
please locate that for me and email Dr. Bognar and me the actual date on the dismissal letter. I would also like to have a
copy of the letter so I can attach it to the readmission letter and if possible you can send me an electronic copy or I can
pick it up from the Registrar office. In addition, I wanted to know if it is OK to provide supporting documentations along
with the readmission letter?

Dear Nausheen,
 
Thank you for your email. My role in the readmission process is to provide documents and take notes on the
proceedings, but I will consult with Dr. Bognar about the process for scheduling such a meeting. Dr. Specter is
usually the person who helps to schedule these meetings after a letter has been submitted to the Dean of the
college.  
 
Please see the text below which I copied from the Student Handbook:
 
6. Petition for Readmission Following Dismissal
a. A student who has been dismissed from the Morsani College of Medicine and who is no longer enrolled may
seek readmission by written request to the Dean of the Morsani College of Medicine. Such requests require
compelling data to support an argument for reinstatement and may be made no sooner than one year after the date
of dismissal.
b. Consideration of such a request, if accepted by the Dean, will be reviewed by a Committee of five members of
the faculty of the Morsani College of Medicine to be appointed by the Dean ad hoc. That Committee will make a
recommendation to the Dean for his/her consideration and action. The decision of the Dean is not subject to
appeal.
 
Dr. Harry van Loveren is currently the interim Dean, and you may forward a written request to him. His office is in
the CMS building if you would like to drop the letter off with the front desk, or you can mail a letter to 12901 Bruce

Dear Dr. Bognar,


This is the course of events/issues I wanted to discuss with you during our meeting
on 3/6/2014. I have also uploaded all of the supporting documents I have stated in this
letter in Appendix which is at the end of the letter and in a drop-box folder which I will
be sending to you (supporting documents in drop box sharing folder are abbreviated as
DBF No in the letter) and if required you can cross-reference at your discretion.

On Feb 2010 I declared my medical ADHD diagnosis to Dean Student Affairs of


University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, Dr. Specter after struggling on
exams and failure in medical science graduate course, which prevented me from
obtaining my masters degree (DBF No.5). Dr. Specter violated of the University's
policies USF MCOM Handbook Section IV, E, 1, a, iii, (c) in not placing me on Leave of
Absence to take a neuropsychological evaluation to determine the underlying cause of my
academic deficiency and if I would be eligible to classify for IDEA and ADA and would
benefit from resources provided by Student Disability Services of academic adjustments
and auxiliary aids to successfully pass the academic year of 2009-2010 (DBF No.3). I
was misguided in the academic year of 2009-2010 and hence subjected me to failure of
first year of medical school (DBF No.5). I was subsequently referred to take the
neuropsychological evaluation sponsored by USF MCOM during the summer of 2010
(Appendix 3). However, the referral service Dr. Schoenberg was negligent in completing
the results in a timely manner (there was four month delay until the results were
completed and I also did not receive an informed consent of my underlying deficits and
appropriate protocol to pursue (Appendix 3). The medical provider also failed his
fiduciary duty to refer my results to the Dean of Student Affairs (Appendix 2). In
addition, Dr. Specter also failed his fiduciary duty to obtain my results and subjected me
to misinformation, false results and contributory negligence (Appendix 2).
I was dismissed from MCOM after failing all examinations in academic year
2011-2012 (DBF No.5 & DBF No.6). After going through appeal process, I ultimately
“discovered” my true results after two years on February 6, 2012 (Appendix 2). I was not
provided with a medical report and the results conveyed to me verbally for past two years
by Dr. Specter were false (Appendix 2). Due to the misconduct, negligence, tort, breach
of fiduciary duty I could not be on ADHD medical treatment (DBF No. 4), apply for

48
academic adjustments and auxiliary aids to USF Student Disability Services in a timely
manner and hence subjected me failure of academic year of 2009-2010 and 2011-2012
(DBF No.5). After discovering my true results, Dr. Specter apologized for his mistake to
the APRC committee and me and I was reinstated back into USF MCOM on Feb 16 2012
(DBF No.6 and Appendix 2). I asked Dr. Specter numerous times if my tuition could be
reimbursed for the academic year, which I was subjected to negligence; hence I was
denied (DBF No.3). All of my failure grades remained in my transcripts and were held
against me in the APRC decision on March 14, 2013 and in the APRC appeal and Dean’s
appeal and ultimately led to my dismissal (Appendix 1).
When I was reinstated back into medical school for the academic year 2012-2013;
I gave my report to my Psychiatrist and got back on ADHD medications (DBF No.4) and
applied for accommodations (Appendix 4). In March 2012, USF Student Disability
Services approved my application for special accommodations; reduced distraction free
environment and extra time on examinations (Appendix 4). With appropriate standards
for my disability, I was able to pass all of the objective examinations successfully in the
academic year 2012-2013 (DBF No.5) except EBCR (DBF No.2 and DBF No. 3).
Unfortunately, on December 2012 my 29-year-old cousin who I grew up with
committed suicide and on Feb 2013 my grandmother passed away (Appendix 5). I
requested extensions on examinations and was granted. However, no further extensions
were granted after my grandmother’s death and I was “hazed” to take an examination on
the spot or otherwise I would receive a “0” for the last exam in Course 7 (DBF No.1 &
DBF No.3). I took several examinations few days after my grandmother’s death (which I
had to make up due to my cousin’s death) without being fully prepared. Fortunately, I
was able to pass them, except EBCR exam by one question (DBF No.2). I was notified
about failing courses a day before my dismissal and hence, did not have the opportunity
to appeal my grade or further discuss the administrative errors associated with the course
directors (DBF No.1). In addition, grades on my transcripts affected by medical
negligence and Dr. Specter’s failure of his fiduciary duty were also held against me in the
APRC meeting on March 14, 2013 and in the appeal hearings and ultimately led to my
dismissal (Appendix 1). I underwent two-appeal process in a state of shock and after
experiencing two recent deaths in the family and medical negligence for past two years.

49
Dr. Specter was also present in all of my appeal hearing, which was clearly a conflict of
interest (DBF No.1). Though I had passed the CBSE above the passing benchmark (DBF
No.9) and successfully remediated courses (DBF No.2) that were affected by the recent
deaths and other administrative errors (DBF No.3); my appeal was not accepted and
hence, I was not allowed to take USMLE Step 1 and start 3rd year with my class
(Appendix 1).
I met with Dr. Monroe several times after the appeals stating all of the concerns
(Appendix 6 and DBF No.1 & DBF No.3) and even stated that I had an USMLE NBME
score of 220 after two month of study period (DBF No.9). She stated that it would be
appropriate to apply for readmission next year (Appendix 6). Such negligence violated
my rightful procedural due process to take USMLE on time and proceed 3rd year with my
class. Due to administrative errors and negligence, I have been subjected to setback of
three years of my career, more debt, and financial and emotional injury to my family and
me. I want to state that my parent’s income is below poverty line. And subjecting a
student and its family to such negligence and hardship was beyond acceptable despite the
fact that a student had passed all of the exams and courses.
After my dismissal, I experienced post adjustment disorder and with time coped
to the best of my ability. I requested Kaplan Medical Team if I can repeat an Kaplan
Medical USMLE Classroom Anywhere Online Course again since the first time I was
enrolled I was not on medications and did not have accommodations. My ADA Kaplan
application to Kaplan Disability services was accepted and I was granted to take the
course for free (DBF No.9). I attended all of the classes for four months and watched
online-demand videos and completed quizzes (DBF No.9). I subsequently was able to
further strengthen my background knowledge and continued to work on my weaknesses.
I have completed 2-3 USMLE Q-banks (USMLE RX, Student Consult, Robbins Qbank
and Kaplan Qbank) and passed practice Kaplan Diagnostic with a 210 and NBME
Simulation Exam with a 220 (DBF No.9). I am reviewing subjects periodically on regular
basis to maintain it fresh in my working memory (DBF No.9).
I have also gathered all of my previous educational records from childhood to
present so I can successfully apply for NBME accommodations (DBF No.5). I recently
took Neuropsychological Evaluation sponsored by Florida Department of Education

50
Vocational Rehabilitation on 3/7/2014. My evaluator at the end of the test notified me
that the informal results from her observation during the exam seemed similar to the
previous Neuropsychological Evaluation that was conducted on 08/05/2010 sponsored by
USF MCOM. To apply for petition for readmission and NBME accommodation on time
and to potentially start the 3rd year with the class of 2016 in early May, I have requested
the head of the department of the organization that recently conducted my
neuropsychological evaluation exam if they can have the formal results ready as soon as
possible.
Another concern I had was regarding my status on USF website on Oasis (DBF
No.8). After passing the remediation and dropping scholarly concentration course and
using Colloquium in lieu for the mandatory elective requirement of 2nd year curriculum
(DBF No.2); my status on Oasis changed from 2nd year to an third year active student and
I was registered for a 3rd year Med Professional Class (DBF No.8). I assumed that there is
a mistake because according to USF MCOM Handbook, a student is not considered a
third year until they have successfully passed USMLE. However, it was an utmost
concern, when I applied to Federal Loan Servicing for Economic Hardship and
Forbearance on my student loans. The Fed Loan service representative stated to me on an
email on 1/29/2014 (DBF No.8) and many times before in a telephone conversation that
USF MCOM Financial Aid office has been reporting to them that I am still considered
“in school” status. I have corrected the error with Fed Loan Servicing and now I am
under Forbearance status due to Economic Hardship (DBF No.8). However, I just wanted
clarify the discrepancy regarding my status on Oasis.
I have addressed to you a short synopsis of the series of events that have led to my
current situation. I have attached in this document a short abbreviated appendix of the
supporting documents of what I have stated in the letter. The appendix includes the
Dean’s appeal decision dated on 5/28/2013 (Appendix 1), the emails from Dr. Specter
and Dr. Schoenberg proving that I had been a victim of medical negligence and breach of
fiduciary duty for two years (2010-2012) (Appendix 2), Neuropsychological Evaluation
conducted on 08/05/2010 which states that the report was not completed until 12/2010 (4-
month delay) (Appendix 3), accommodation acceptance letter from SDS on 3/2013
(Appendix 4), death certificate of my 29 year old cousin and grandmother (Appendix 5)

51
and a letter I gave to Dr. Monroe after the appeal on 7/1/2013 and her response to my
letter dated 10/25/2013 (Appendix 6).
I want to state that I feel uncomfortable working with Dr. Specter for readmission
due to conflict of interest. I am humbly asking you how to proceed with petition for
readmission and possible course of action to take to remedy the situation.

Dear Dr. Bognar, 
 
It was nice meeting you today.  Thank you for agreeing to guide me through the petition for readmission process and
acknowledging the conflict of interest situation. I have attached a letter that summarizes key points from our meeting today.
The supporting documents mentioned in the letter are in a dropbox folder which I will be sharing with you through my health
email address. The complete letter with supporting documents will be in the folder called "Top 5 to read" and the document is
called the No.1 File. The letter will guide you to the documents with confidential information which I feel comfortable sharing
with you due to the situation such as  death certificates, medical records, complaints and also appeal for grade change
documents and etc. The documents contain a lot more detail than what I presented to you today in our meeting. 
 
I apologize for requesting to expedite the process, however, third year starts on May 5th for the class of 2016 and NBME
requires 60 day processing for accomodations and one to be enrolled in the MD program. If you have any updates regarding
how to proceed through the petition for readmission process, please do not hesitate to e­mail me. I will continue studying for
USMLE Step 1 and working on my readmission letter this weekend. I have attached Readmission letter outline in the Top 5
folder as well. I will be sharing the dropbox folder through my health email. I would kindly appreciate if you can email me an
confirmation that you have received and can successfully access the contents in the drop box sharing folder. I would
recommend reading documents in the Top 5 Folder first. I have also included my current neuropsych report which I just
received from my evaluator, however, it has to undergo few minor corrections and can send you the corrected one after it is
complete at your request. 
 
Thank You and I apologize for going over the time limit in our meeting today. And hopefully Match Day
was a success!

NBME Accomodations Issue

Wed 4/2/2014 12:24 PM

NBME Decision.pdf;

Dear Dr. Bognar, 

I had a question regarding the NBME accommodation issue. Last year while I was undergoing the appeal process, Dr. Specter
suggested to me that since the application for accommodation takes lengthy time; I should submit my request as soon as
possible. I submitted my application to take Step 1 on 4/10/2013 (was dismissed 3/14/2013). After going through several
websites and forums and NBME guidelines; it came to my realization that one should not apply for Step1 if they have been
dismissed even if they are undergoing the appeal process. After discovery of this information; I called my NBME disability
coordinator right away and told her about my situation (dismissal and undergoing appeal process and that I have a lot more
information/records to include in my application; but can't due to my dismissal standing) and to put my application on hold
until the decision comes forth regarding my potential reinstatement. If NBME records its phone calls; they can retrieve my
request to put my application on hold due to my standing. However, my application was reviewed anyways and the decision
was given to me. I believe it may have been due to a letter Dr. Specter gave to NBME that I had successfully passed the 2nd
yr curriculum (with treatment and accommodations); and my telephone conversation and statement that I currently
dismissed, probably contradicted and thats why they proceeded with the application and gave their decision. (I am not sure).
Ultimately, I withdrew my application to take Step 1and was able to get partial refunded. 

However, I wanted to know what to do about it if reinstated. How do explain this discrepancy to NBME? I have completed a
NBME accommodation application and folder (still requesting some letters from my current physician, Dr. Maher), however, it
would be beneficial to have an experienced Disability coordinator or someone who has worked with application for
accommodations  to look through your files and records and see if there is anything that maybe missing and would need
further documentation (i.e Bobby Collins, Dr. Stevenson, USF SDS?) We can discuss this as well as the petition for
readmission letter in our meeting on Friday. However, I have attached NBME decision from last year (based on the fact that
my application was incomplete). And I will bring the NBME Folder with me to our meeting.

This is the email received from FedLoan that our financial aid reported "in­school" status. Note that I have corrected it to
Forbearance, however my Oasis still states that I am a 3rd year MCOM student for the class of 2015.

Subject: From Nausheen Zainulabeddin regarding meeting on 4/4/2014 

Dear Dr. Bognar, 

Thank You for further advice regarding the petition for readmission/reinstatement. I apologize for all the files I may have
given to you and confused you to what is important. The only document that I essentially wanted you to read was the No. 1
Letter to Dr. Bognar in the Top 5 Folder. Everything was just supporting documents of the statements I made in the letter. I
have decided after our meeting that I will be sending my letter to Dr. Loveren next week with the additional letter I sent to
you regarding the discrepancy in the interpretation of the policy stated in the handbook, the accepted date to apply for
readmission which was was stated to me last year and how the new date stated to me recently would prohibit me from
graduating and starting residency on time. In addition, I would still appreciate if you could clarify how much "elective" time a
student could potentially use for Step 1 studying (in this case for the petition for readmission and application for NBME
accommodations). From my knowledge and guidance that was provided to me last year, it is 4 weeks and the next rotation
starts in early June for a student to be eligible to graduate with their class and start residency on time. As a side note stating
from experience,  a student should not be encouraged (if it can be prevented) to not start residency on time because it can
have financial/psychological impact on the student and their family and accrue more interest on their loans and loss of
potential earning as a physician. 

I also had a question which I mentioned in my initial meeting with you regarding my registration status at USF which states
that I am a MCOM student with a "third year standing" and our financial aid department reported throughout the year that I
was "in­school standing" until I further clarified this discrepancy to FedLoan representative and my status is now changed to
"forbearance". I have attached to this email stating the error. Please let me know of why there is an error regarding my status
and report to FedLoan. 

I had some few questions and since time is a crunch, I am just trying to work out an effective way to move things as quickly
as possible if reinstatement is considered. I want to clarify that I don't want to anything unless it is approved under the
ethical standards of our college and if my interpretation deviates from the accepted norm, please advise me and I will correct
my action. There are three processes that would require at expedite level if reinstated, first is financial aid/FAFSA, 2nd is
completion of 3rd year training modules/paperwork which a student is required to finish before the 5/5 training date, third is
USMLE registration and NBME accommodation application review by an USF MCOM Faculty/USF SDS who has expertise in this
area before sending it to NBME.  I have completed the NBME application, NBME personal statement and supporting
documents required and have requested appropriate letters from my current physician, Dr. Maher and VR counselor. I can
complete the training modules/paperwork, FAFSA and MCOM Financial Aid application if it is accepted within the ethical
standards. I have been studying for USMLE Step1 with Kaplan live online Step 1 course for the past year (more than 6
months) despite having an passing MCOM CBSE final exam score on my first attempt, an Kaplan diagnostic score of 210 and
NBME practice exam of 220 before starting the course and I have been doing UWORLD questions on daily basis and studying
from First AID 2014 at least 8 hours everyday. I want you to know I am ready to move this process as quickly as possible and
prevent any further unnecessary delays.

Dear Dr. Bognar, 
I wanted to let you know that the information you had received regarding me being eligible to apply for petition for
readmission in May 28 is incorrect. My dismissal was in March 19. I had exhausted all of the internal grievance process and
decision was dated by Dr. Monroe on October 25 2013. That would mean that I would be eligible to apply for petition for
readmission in October of next year (which is not what you have been told). The policy stated in our handbook doesn't
indicate that a student can apply after they have exhausted all of the internal grievance process. The information you have
received was incorrect, from my "new understanding of the policy", I should be eligible to apply for petition for readmission. I
hope this delay does not impede me from starting with the new class on time and further delay my NBME accommodation
process.

Dear Dr. Bognar, 
 
When I had spoken to Dr. Monroe, Dr. Saporta, Dr. Specter last year, they had stated that I could apply from the original date
of dismissal. I had clearly asked if it meant March 15th or is it May 28. I come from a financially struggling family; and this
information was important to me regarding finances, signing my apartment lease to maintain Florida residency status and
preparing for appeal process/boards/application for accommodations. I had also contacted many lawyers in the area who felt
my dismissal was unlawful. However, my parents didn't have financial funding to support the demand process. Since
readmission process is less expensive; I clarified this date aspect. They stated it is from the date of dismissal and not the
process (including the appeals). The policy stated in the handbook is "vague" and does not indicate that you can apply after
you have exhausted all of your appeal proceedings. They clearly stated to me that the timing would allow you to start with
the next class. You have also served as a Vice Dean before and you instantly stated that it is the date of dismissal as well. I
would also appreciate if Dr. Specter does not play any role in my readmission process as I had stated to your in our
meeting and the letter (conflict of interest). If you read Dr. Monroe's letter dated on October 25, 2013, she clearly stated to
me in our meeting and the letter; that you can apply after one academic year from the date of dismissal and the committee
will decide if you should take Step 1 (meaning eligible to start with 2016 class). I also wanted to know if you had the time to
read my files, readmission letter and etc? I wanted to make an appointment with you early next week. However, I felt maybe
you needed sufficient time to read the files/letter and Friday maybe appropriate. If you have reviewed the files, I will try to
reschedule the appointment with Ms. Rivas, early next week instead.

Hi Nausheen,

I need to clarify a couple of very important items for you. 
 
First, with regards to the  ming of your appeal, we have again very carefully reviewed and the soonest that you can appeal is

8/1/2016 RE: Petition for Readmission- Appointment/Letter - Zainulabeddin, Nausheen

late May 2014. The date of the last step in the dismissal process, including the final appeal, was May 28, 2013.  
 
Secondly, the next step to pe on for readmission (as outlined in Ms. Cook’s prior email to you and taken from the student
handbook) is as follows:
 
6. Petition for Readmission Following Dismissal
a. A student who has been dismissed from the Morsani College of Medicine and who is no longer enrolled
may seek readmission by written request to the Dean of the Morsani College of Medicine. Such requests
require compelling data to support an argument for reinstatement and may be made no sooner than one year
after the date of dismissal.
b. Consideration of such a request, if accepted by the Dean, will be reviewed by a Committee of five members
of the faculty of the Morsani College of Medicine to be appointed by the Dean ad hoc. That Committee will
make a recommendation to the Dean for his/her consideration and action. The decision of the Dean is not
subject to appeal.
 
Dr. Harry van Loveren is currently the interim Dean, and you may forward a written request to him. His office is in
the CMS building if you would like to drop the letter off with the front desk, or you can mail a letter to 12901 Bruce
B. Downs Blvd, MDC 2, Tampa, FL 33612. Please keep in mind that your last appeal was in May 2013, and I do
not know if that will affect the timing of your petition.
 
To my knowledge, you have not submi ed such a le er to the interim Dean, although again it seems that it would be most
appropriate to wait un l late May 2014.  The le er you have constructed and a ached is addressed to “Deans Commi ee”. 
Such a commi ee would not be formed un l such  me as the Dean agrees to consider your appeal.  I hope this helps clarify
next steps.

Thank You Ms. Cook for the email, 

I acknowledge the 10 day standard for students, however, when I had met with Dr. Klasko on May 22 2013 regarding the
Dean's Appeal, he stated to me in the beginning of the meeting that the Dean usually has 7 days to give the ultimate decision
to a student. I thought maybe that standard also applied to this situation as well for the interim Dean (in this case it would be
Friday). However, I have stated my situation and humbly requested the need for expedite processing to Dr. Van Loveren. Just
keep me updated.

Hi Nausheen,
 
I have copied Dr. Bognar on my response for clarification, as I do not see a response time limit for the Dean in the
Student Handbook. I know that we generally ask students to respond to actions within 10 business days of receipt,
which translates to about 2 calendar weeks.
 
If the Dean decides to appoint a subcommittee, it can take some time to gather members of the committee. Once
the committee and the timing of the meeting are determined, however, you would receive notification from either

officially received my readmission letter on April 11, 2014. I wanted to know if you could find out for me if my interpretation

student the opportunity to present their case in front of an Dean's committe or denies the student's request. And will I

Date April 25, 2014

To: Dr. Bognar


Vice Dean of Educational Affairs
Morsani College of Medicine
University of South Florida

Dear Dr. Bognar,

I received a letter yesterday regarding my petition stating to wait until May 28th 2014 to
file for readmission, due to USF MCOM’s interpretation of internal grievance process
(Appendix 10), which is different from NBME (Appendix 6), in which they do not accept
a student’s USMLE Step 1 registration despite a student is undergoing internal grievance
process and LCME (from my understanding of the instructions stated in the website). I
acknowledge that each institution has its own standards and it would help and avoid
future conflicts if it was aligned with the standards of NBME (appendix 6) and LCME.
Especially, since Dr. Monroe had stated to me that I could apply in March as it is stated
in my notes with my physicians from last year (August 9, 2013) (Appendix 2),
appointment dates with Dr. Monroe confirming that we had discussed this issue (august
1st 2013) (Appendix 1), signing my lease until the end of next month (Appendix 7) and
Federal Loan Forbearance until 5/15/2014 (Appendix 3). This new “change” will be of
inconvenience to my family and I since our household income is below poverty line
(Appendix 5). I acknowledge that each institution has its own standards; however, I feel
if a student had been communicated and stated differently, it should not be counted
against them (Appendix 1).

However, I wanted to clarify a discrepancy associated with my dismissal letter dated May
28, 2013 (Appendix 9). My meeting with Dr. Klasko was initially scheduled for May 21,
2013 at 11 AM. However, Mrs. Brickner stated to me on May 17th 2013 that he had to
reschedule it to May 22nd 2013 at 12:00 AM (Appendix 8) (in which there was a delay of
20 minutes of initiation of the meeting and lasted only ten minutes). Due to that, I wanted
to correct that the petition should not be filed at least from one year from that date—or
May 29, 2014. I felt it might be important to correct this mistake for future legal
standards. I have attached my dismissal letter dated May 28, 2014, rescheduled
appointment memo dated May 22nd 2013 and my letter from Dr. Van Loveren dated April
22, 2014 (Appendix 10).

Sincerely,
Nausheen(Zainulabeddin((

aspects which I did not include during my appeal process. I have also attached the letter in this email, when you

From Nausheen Regarding Dr. Loveren's Letter

Fri 4/25/2014 9:55 AM

To: Bognar, Bryan <bbognar@health.usf.edu>;

Dear Dr. Bognar, 

Ms. Rivas stated that you will not be available to communicate via an appointment for more than a week. I felt emailing you
would be better due to your time constraints. The attached document is a letter to you regarding my interpretation of the
delay and an mistake that maybe important  to be corrected regarding the date of dismissal (May 28 vs May 29) in Dr. Van
Loveren's letter. 

Thank You and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Subject: Zainulabeddin Notarized Financial Appeal (Deadline April 25, 2014)

Dear Ms. Fuqua, 
 
After going through the BALS website in entirety and searching through the attorneys and their credentials, it came to my
understanding that BALS can provide help. Though Education Law is not its speciality, however, I do qualify under the ADA
client rights and can seek help from coordinator or under the Areas of service (other) in which an attorney from BALS who
specializes in education law could potentially help (Randi Patsky) from (https://www.bals.org/who­we­are/professional­
profiles/alphabetically­o­z). I went ahead and got my two documents notarized and have attached the accompanied
supporting documents for the statements in the two documents. Since the document is created by me and the statements are
of mine. I felt a signature of mine was sufficient and didn't require me to travel to South Tampa for my parent's signature
(and you didn't state in the emails or phone conversation that a signature of my parents was required). Please note in the
bottom of the page it states page numbers; due to that and to maintain the integrity of the documents, I requested my bank
representative to notarize both of the documents. I will also mail the documents so you can have the original copy of the
notarized documents (postmarked today). I have met the Financial Appeal deadline as of today (April 25, 2014). 
 
Thank You and please let me know if there is anything else is required. And I appreciate your guidance and patience with the
financial appeal process

Dear Dr. Bognar, 
 
Thank You for your helpful suggestions today and keeping me updated regarding the administrative changes. I
acknowledge that since you mentioned in our April 4th 2014 meeting that since legal questions has been raised
regarding my case; I assume the presence of 3rd person in our meeting is because you feel comfortable having a
third party (pattern I have noticed: Ms. Rivas (5/2/2014) and MCOM legal council representative (4/4/2014). I will
check back with you on May 9th (Friday) or May 12th (Monday) regarding my petition for readmission status. I
want you to know that I am very compliant regarding following policies and procedures as an individual and as a
student at USF MCOM. And I fully understand and respect the standards set in place. Before I sent my request to
Dr. Van Loveren regarding his decision in a letter dated April 22nd 2014 I consulted Higher Education Law books
and policies to see if my request was ethical and appropriate and also consulted a family member who recently
finished law school.  
 
These are two cases which are similar to my scenario.  
Olsson v. Board of Higher Education of the City of New York, 402 N.E.2d 1150 (N.Y. 1980)
 
Blank v. Board of Higher Education of the City of New York, 273 N.Y.S.2d 796
 
I have included the summary about the cases from the Education Law textbook which I have been consulting
(attached to this email).  From the cases mentioned and the letter I sent you dated April 25, 2014 (with supporting
circumstantial evidence), I feel it is appropriate to request Dr. Lockwood to reconsider the decision and allow me to
petition for readmission at this time. 
 
Thank You again for your patience and cooperation and I apologize that our meeting ran later than usual.

Scenario 1.pdf; Scenario 2.pdf; USPS.com® ‐ USPS Tracking™ Dr. Bognar Package.pdf;

Dear Dr. Bognar, 

I want to personally thank you for giving Dr. Lockwood the letter, giving him the opportunity to read about the
situation, explaining Calendar 1 and 2 set of events and the impact of miscommunication due to administrative
changes had on my timing of petition, due process to attend I2C and learn with my peers. And letting me know
ahead of time regarding the decision. I had sent the documents via USPS package and I included an personal thank
you card to you as well. According to USPS tracking message (attached to this email), it states that it has been
delivered to MCOM.  
 
For your convenience, I have attached calendar of events which I created after your suggestion to this email (hard
copy print may have been too small of a font to see). Scenario 1 (petition eligibility now and able to start residency
on July 1, 2016) and Scenario 2 (Petition eligibility May 29, 2014).  

I had sent you an email on April 5, 2014 (after our April 4th 2014 meeting) regarding the error from USF MCOM
registrar since they are still reporting me as a 3rd year full time student with an "in school status". I spoke to
Federal Loan representative yesterday and they stated that they recently received the "in­school status" message
from National Database on April 8, 2014. However, I have corrected it again and will be requesting forbearance.   

I wanted to ask you an important advice.  I know you had done everything on your end to bring up my case to Dr.
Lockwood which I genuinely appreciate. However, I do feel that sometimes meeting the person and hearing it from
their side helps the decision maker understand the situation better. Thats why I decided to give you the personal
letter and files on 3/21/2014 (not 3/6/2014).  Even though you had accepted my request to communicate via email
due to our March 6 meeting cancellation, time sensitivity and urgency of the situation to potentially start I2C on
5/5. Ms. Rivas did state to me that the next available date for an appointment was the next day, however, I was
scheduled for an neuropsychological evaluation. Due to that, I gave you a short synopsis via email on 3/11/2014
and waited until 3/21/2014 to personally meet with you to discuss the issues and upon your request give you the
personal letter with supporting files (dated March 8, 2014). 

I feel that regardless of the set date for petition, an meeting with Dr. Lockwood would enable him to understand the
situation and make an appropriate decision regarding my future status. And due to the situation, I feel it is
appropriate to ask this request. I acknowledge that he is a new dean and may have a lot on his plate right now.
However, I will request Mrs. Brickner if he does have some time for an appointment. In my last meeting with Dr.
Klasko, Dr. Monroe was present as well. I believe that the protocol is to have an Vice Dean (you) present if Dr.
Lockwood accepts my request to meet with him regarding my petition. 

Thank You and I hope you like the thank you card.

check back with you on May 9th (Friday) or May 12th (Monday) regarding my petition for readmission status. I
want you to know that I am very compliant regarding following policies and procedures as an individual and as a
student at USF MCOM. And I fully understand and respect the standards set in place. Before I sent my request to
Dr. Van Loveren regarding his decision in a letter dated April 22nd 2014 I consulted Higher Education Law books
and policies to see if my request was ethical and appropriate and also consulted a family member who recently
finished law school.  
 
These are two cases which are similar to my scenario.  
Olsson v. Board of Higher Education of the City of New York, 402 N.E.2d 1150 (N.Y. 1980)
 
Blank v. Board of Higher Education of the City of New York, 273 N.Y.S.2d 796
 
I have included the summary about the cases from the Education Law textbook which I have been consulting
(attached to this email).  From the cases mentioned and the letter I sent you dated April 25, 2014 (with supporting
circumstantial evidence), I feel it is appropriate to request Dr. Lockwood to reconsider the decision and allow me to
petition for readmission at this time. 
 
Thank You again for your patience and cooperation and I apologize that our meeting ran later than usual.

Thank You Dr. Bognar, 
 
I delivered the package today (5/27/14) at 10:50 AM to Mrs. Brickner at the Dean's office. I have attached the delivery
confirmation signature that Mrs. Brickner signed upon the receipt of the package. And emailed Dr. Lockwood the receipt of
the package and that he should be expecting a new package from me from Mrs. Brickner for my petition for readmission ­
(May 28, 2014). I believe the standard now is to wait up to 10 business days for his decision.

Subject: RE: Discuss ques ons rela ve to appeal
 
Dear Dr. Bognar, 
 
Thank you for accepting my request for an appointment to answer questions relative to my petition for readmission.
I would like to cancel the appointment since my letter is due before 8 AM tomorrow and it would be too late. Since
Dr. Van Loveren stated in his last letter dated April 22, 2014 that I could: 
 
“...withdraw, modify or supplement the “Petition” and accompanying packet at any time before that
date (May 28, 2014)... (please see attachment)
 
I prepared a new package and petition and will be dropping it off to Mrs. Brickner this morning. I did email her
yesterday regarding the new petition package and a receipt I prepared for the package. I have attached the delivery
of the package receipt and pertinent documents to this email. The petition is about the same as the one I had sent to
interim Dean, though, I just changed the format (i.e., double spaced, APA style, corrected grammatical errors,
deleted redundant statements, reorganized the appendices and addressed to him (besides Dr. Van Loveren). In the
package, I included an electronic version (USB drive) and hard copy format (documents in perfect binders). 
 
I had a question regarding including a summary of my financial situation; however, I decided to not mention this
aspect since it has already been addressed to him in the week of 5/5/2014. The only other question was regarding
making an appointment with him, however, I have organized a petition that he would be able to understand the
situation and if required request an appointment with me at his discretion.
 
Thank You and I will keep you posted about any updates and concerns.

a. If, in the opinion of the APRC, a student’s academic performance does not meet the
USF MCOM institutional requirements for continuing enrollment, the Committee may recommend
Handbook Section IV.E that the student be dismissed from enrollment in the Morsani College of Medicine. The
student will be notified as soon as possible once this decision has been made.
(4) (a-d b. A student will be subject to dismissal if he/she has more than one F grade at any time,
fails a course while on Academic Probation, receives a deficient grade for a course for a
second time, fails to meet the requirements of remediation, or upon any other evidence
of poor academic performance or deficient professional behavior as determined by the
APRC.
c. A student whose performance, though passing, is borderline or marginal in several
courses will be subject to dismissal if the APRC determines that the student does not
meet the competency standards of the Morsani College of Medicine. Similarly, a student
whose performance, though passing, consists of a record of multiple deficiencies or
failures with subsequent remediation will be subject to dismissal.
d. A student will be sponsored by USF Morsani College of Medicine for USMLE Step 1 and 2
exams for a maximum of 3 times each under ordinary circumstances. Following a third
failure on any one of these exams the student will be subject to dismissal.
e. A student may be dismissed from the Morsani College of Medicine if his/her
professional behavior and ethics are not in keeping with the standards of the College.
Graduation is predicated on the determination by the faculty, as recommended by the
APRC, that a student is suitable for the practice of medicine in terms of professional
attitudes and values. The APRC may recommend to the Dean of the Morsani College of
Medicine, the dismissal of any student whose behavior is not consistent with the
standards of the medical profession, or when the student’s presence in the medical
school is considered detrimental to the student in question, others in the Morsani
College of Medicine community or patients. The APRC will evaluate, when requested,
cases of students whose professional behavior and/or ethics have been questioned and,
if deemed appropriate, may make a recommendation for dismissal from the College.
f. If there is a recommendation that the student be dismissed, the student may request in
writing an appeal hearing before the APRC within ten (10) school days of the time the
original decision was made.

4. Grade Appeal Process

a. Basis for Appeal

i. A student may appeal a course grade if the student has evidence that the grade was
assigned in an erroneous manner. This is not a process for appeal of established
departmental grading policies. The following procedure provides guidelines for the appeal
process. All persons concerned with this process should make every attempt to adhere to
the approximate time schedule outlined in the following description of the appeal process.

b. Appeal to the Faculty Member for Review of the Assigned Grade

i. Within ten (10) school days* after the receipt of the grade, the student may appeal in
writing to the responsible faculty member any assigned grade that they dispute. The faculty
member will review the course grading guidelines with the student to ensure that the
process is understood and has been followed. If it is found that the assigned grade is
incorrect in the judgment of the faculty member, he/she will initiate the appropriate
change. If the change is made at this point, the matter is concluded. The faculty member will

34

122
respond in writing to the student within ten (10) school days of the student’s request for
review.

*All actions related to the appeals process are expected to be taken within two (2) weeks of
receipt; however, in instances where holidays or vacation intervene, action must be taken
within ten (10) weekdays on which classes are held.

ii. If the faculty member is no longer with the University, the student shall confer with the
departmental chairperson who will then make every effort to receive written input
concerning the matter from the former faculty member. If it is not possible to receive
information from the former faculty member regarding the grade, then the student may
appeal the grade as described below and the departmental chairperson will represent the
interests of the faculty member who issued the grade.

c. Appeal to the Department Chairperson/Associate Dean for UME

i. If the question of the assigned grade cannot be resolved between the student and the
faculty member, the student may appeal in writing to the chairperson of the department in
which the course was taught or for interdisciplinary courses to the Associate Dean for UME.
This appeal must be made within ten (10) school days following the initial faculty member
review. The student shall include all relevant information relating to the appeal with the
written appeal. After receiving such an appeal in writing from the student, the chairperson
shall review with the faculty member the substance of the student’s appeal and seek to
determine its validity.

ii. If the chairperson/Associate Dean determines that the assigned grade is, in his/her
judgment, inappropriate, the chairperson should recommend to the faculty member that
the grade be changed. The faculty member may or may not concur with the
chairperson’s/Associate Dean’s recommendation.

iii. The chairperson/Associate Dean will notify the student in writing, within ten (10) school
days of receipt of the appeal, whether or not the assigned grade will be changed by the
faculty member. If the grade is changed to the student’s satisfaction, the matter is
concluded. If the grade is not changed, the chairperson/Associate Dean will advise the
student of the right of appeal to the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs.

iv. If the student elects to appeal, copies of all written communication mentioned above shall
be sent by the chairperson/Associate Dean to the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs as
described below.

d. Appeal to the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs

i. If the grade is not changed to the satisfaction of the student at the departmental level, the
student may appeal the assigned grade, in writing, to the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs.
This appeal must occur within ten (10) school days of receipt of the decision of the
chairperson/Associate Dean. The appeal shall be prepared in writing by the student in
consultation with the Associate Dean for Student Affairs of the Morsani College of Medicine.
The Vice Dean for Educational Affairs may discuss the case with the student, the faculty
member, the chairperson of the department in which the course was taught or the
Associate Dean for UME, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and the Chair of the APRC.
Following these discussions, the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs may make a
35

123
recommendation to the faculty member, the student, and the department
chairperson/Associate Dean. If this results in an acceptable solution to all parties, the matter
is concluded. If not, then a Hearing Committee will be appointed. The Vice Dean for
Educational Affairs may, if he/she chooses, appoint a Hearing Committee upon receiving the
initial appeal. The appeal will be handled as expeditiously as possible by the Vice Dean for
Educational Affairs.

ii. When the decision is made to establish a hearing to investigate an appeal, the Vice Dean for
Educational Affairs shall convene an ad hoc committee comprised of three senior members
of the faculty of the Morsani College of Medicine who had not previously been involved in
issuing the grade or the appeal process and three medical students, all of whom shall have
voting privileges. This Committee shall elect a chairperson and hold a hearing concerning
the appeal at a time acceptable to all participants. At this hearing all material relevant to the
appeal shall be presented by the student, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, the Chair
of the APRC, the faculty member issuing the grade or raising the concern, or the department
chairperson/Associate Dean for UME. Others may be requested to assist the Committee.
The student may request to have another individual present for support.

iii. The Hearing Committee will submit to the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs a written report
containing a recommendation for a specific course of action regarding the student’s grade
appeal. If the Committee cannot reach a conclusion, the written report will be submitted to
the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs who will consider the reason(s) why the committee
failed to reach a decision.

iv. The Vice Dean for Educational Affairs will then recommend a solution, which may or may
not contain some or all of the recommendations of the Hearing Committee. As delegated
authority of the Dean, the decision of the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs is final.

5. Appeal Mechanism for Disciplinary Action or Dismissal

A disciplinary action of the APRC may be appealed by the student for reconsideration of the action
taken. If the disciplinary action of the APRC is to dismiss the student from the Morsani College of
Medicine, the student must appear before the APRC.

a. Request for Hearing

The request must be received in writing within ten (10) school days following the date the
student was informed of the decision. Requests to appear before the Committee should be
submitted to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and the chairperson of the APRC.

b. Appeal of APRC Hearing Decision

The hearing will address evidence of the student’s performance or professional behavior. The
student has the right to be present for the appeal and may be accompanied by a person or
persons of the student’s choice to provide support and counsel to the student. The person(s)
may not act as the student’s attorney. The Associate Dean for Student Affairs also may serve as
an advocate for the student in the appeal before the Committee if requested by the student.
Alternatively the student may request that another faculty member, who is not a member of the
APRC, serve as their advocate. That individual will be present at the Committee meeting only
while the student is present. Immediately following the hearing, the APRC will decide upon a
specific recommendation. Recommendations of the appeal Committee are final in all decisions

I had called you this morning at 11:53 AM and left a voice mail regarding questions and concerns I may have regarding my

Dear Mrs. Brickner, 
 
I just wanted to clarify from the Calendar I gave to Dr. Lockwood and Dr. Bognar (Dr. Bognar stated he presented it to Dr.

11, 2014 which I hand delivered to you that from my experience of previous internal grievance process that the Dean reads

process (i.e request accepted and formulation of the committee).  It did not mean that I expected an final decision for
petition for readmission in 10 days. As stated in a timeline which I provided to Dr. Bognar and Dr. Lockwood in the week of
5/5/2014 that from my understanding the entire process would take about a month or so (or even more). I just wanted to
clarify this confusion. Since Ms. Burford's letter dated May 30, 2014 quote my email from May 28, 2014 that
 
"I have e­mailed Dr. Bognar regarding the update and from my understanding Dr. Lockwood has standard 10 days to respond
to my petition"
 
I thought it was understood from the letter I gave you on April 11, 2014 and Scenario 2 given to Dr. Lockwood that I meant
that Dr. Lockwood has about 10 days to read the letter [which is about 9­10 pages (not double spaced); everything else is
evidence of the statements in the letter]. And upon reading my petition to decide whether to accept my request for petition or
not. I also was not sure if it was 7 days or within 10 days in which the Dean would respond for the request to petition (not
the final decision, just request and then upon acceptance of request a committee would be formulated). To clarify the
confusion regarding whether I should expect 10 days or 7 days for the decision of the request, I had emailed Ms. Cook
regarding this and she stated that maybe it is 10 days which I have attached to this email. 
 
Thank You and I apologize in advance for any mis­confusion. And I appreciate your cooperation and sincere patience through
the process.

Dr. Bognar Meeting 6_6_2014.pdf;

Dear Dr. Bognar, 

I have attached an summary from our appointment today on 6/6/2014 at 12:00 PM. It also contains some reminders of tasks
that you stated you would research such as USF MCOM Handbooks 2009­2013 and information regarding the release of my
clinical evaluations and records. I also attached the summaries of the cases I mentioned in our meeting and Feb 21, 2012
APRC Letter. From our conversation, I got the impression that final copy of petition was forwarded to you and Mrs. Ferguson.
It came to my recent understanding that the petition is forwarded to the MCOM attorney and respective administrators involved
in the petition process? I had initially thought that this information is only relayed between the Dean's committee members and
Dean Dr. Lockwood.

Thank You

This is the first time, I came to the knowledge that my car is towed, via telephone with Candice today, March 12, 2018.

representative stated they had called and contacted USF FCU, also my father, who is also the owner of the car, and sent
the notifications to my Tampa address and Chicago address. 

However, I have not received any correspondence, from anyone until now, March 12, 2018. When the car towing fees are
now of $1095, and it costs $40 per day. If I had known earlier, I would have flown back to Chicago, IL, right away; since
flights are only $50 and picked up my car. Besides accruing costs of $40 per day. And coincidently, I am receiving this
notice, when I have to leave out of town tomorrow and would be impossible for me to take the next flight. However, I am
finding now, two weeks later. 

Is there a reason your credit union withheld this information from me for two weeks? The towing company stated, that
they had contacted USF FCU and also sent out letters. I have received no letters, and I also check my USPS informed
delivery, which tells me what mail is in my mailbox. And received no mail in my Tampa address either.

Nausheen,

I apologize there must be a miscommunica on. As you stated in your email the Towing Yard sends out mail
no fica on when the vehicle is towed to the Credit Union and also all Registered Owners. When received the Credit
Union reaches out to the towing company to check the status of the vehicle. If we are informed it is s ll there with no
contact from the owner as a courtesy the Credit Union reaches out to you to confirm your inten ons regarding the
vehicle to make a determina on if the Credit Union will need to assign as a Repossession and  pick it up to avoid a
loss. Unfortunately It is not the Credit Unions responsible to ensure that you received the no fica on that was sent to
you by the Towing Agent via mail, However at this  me I  will need to know your plans concerning this ma er so I can

hence, I stayed longer than anticipated, including my school financial aid issues, which is resolved. I spoke to the Leydon
Towing and notified to them, that I will be picking up the car by March 20th, by 3 p.m. EST. 

I had parked at a location, via airport parking, which does not usually tow, if one is late. However, this was an unfortunate,
unusual case. None of the owners were notified, including my father, Jalalluddin Khawaja nor me. If I had known of this
information, as per IL State Law, to contact the owner within 24­48 hours, I would have flown back immediately.
Unfortunately, they notified me a day before I was leaving out of town for something that could not be changed, no matter
what. Coincidence and unfortunate one. 

Additionally, I scheduled my flight back within 21 days of the tow, as per guidelines for Chicago towing. Hence, this will be
sufficient. I have spoken to the towing individuals regarding the situation and if fees can be reduced, and they stated, we
will try our best to help the situation. I will also be contacting my progressive car insurance company regarding
reimbursement of towing, and other related situation as deemed appropriate. 

Thank you again, for notifying me regarding this vital information.
