Default NBME15 or UWSA2 in this last month?

So my application has finally be accepted and ECFMG said they'll send my scheduling permit by the end of this week. Once I get that, I have to hustle for a date before this month end. I don't know how realistic that is but I'll just keep trying everyday.

Here is my question, I have only 2 (technically 3) more assessments left: NBME 15, UWSA2, and [Free 150]. Which one is the best to do early? I know that's a weird and a tough q. The way I've see it, if I do UWSA2, then I can even learn/reinforce a lot of concepts as it's just like a mini-q bank. This may/may not help me later when I do FREE 150 and NBME 15.

On the other hand, I can also postpone UWSA2 to the last week before the exam to increase my confidence (however inaccurate it may be.)

I'm planning to take one on this 8th, but not sure which one. For now, I'm going with UWSA2, then NBME 15 in a week and lastly FREE 150 5-6 days before the real deal (so this depends on when I get the exam date.)

I'd say do NBME 15 and Free 150 back to back. That's what I am gonna do with NBME 12. You can do UWSA 2 few days before your test.
