I am in the same boat! I felt like I was going strong, then classes started and took up most of the day so I couldn't get much studying done, and I feel like I have forgotten so much! These days I look at a flashcard or UWorld question and feel like I can't even begin to think though the problem; it's as if my brain just freezes up. I am scheduled for June 29th (postponed twice already), and I might need to postpone again. Definitely postpone if you need to, no sense taking the test if you aren't ready

All of you need to take an NBME to see what scores you get. IF you're satisfied, no point of postponing. If you post pone too long, then you're bound to forget stuff you learned 4 months ago...

To be honest, I have 2 months to go, I haven't gone through UW yet, but am planning to take an NBME every week starting from today (9 in total), so that would help me not only prepare for the exam, but also I could assess my improvements.



I think all you need to do is cram FA and do NBME's now...
