At first I’m like,
But then I realize I have to study for Step I
so, this is my life right now. i’ll be going (pretty much) silent until my USMLE exam june 19.
here’s hoping that the boyf and i won’t drive each other crazy (we’re study buddies), i can sustain focus for four weeks, and i make it out relatively unscathed.
Will be known as D-Day from here on out. I just scheduled my USMLE Step 1 exam!
For those who don’t know, Step 1 is an eight-hour standardized test that kind of determines your medical career. If you don’t pass, you can’t move on to third year, and if your score isn’t high enough some residencies (dermatology, orthopedics, etc.) are essentially no longer an option. It’s like the MCAT on steroids- kind of a big deal. I don’t usually get test anxiety (case in point: exam on nutrition and endocrinology tomorrow and here I am on the interwebs), but I have a feeling this one will be a doozy…
I’ll have four uninterrupted weeks to study for the boards, and then one week before third year starts on June 25. Eek!
