Default What do I do next?

Hey Guys,
I need some advice. I am in the last few weeks of my preparation. Planning to give my exam around 28th of this month. I have given only one NBME 13 online so far and scored 580/245 in it.
I have also given the UWSA I and II. Scored 247 and 256 respectively.
I want to give the other NBMEs as well but I don't know how to schedule my preparation from now on till the exam.

Please leave some suggestions. Thank you so much.

Wow, those are some great scores! Yes, you should give it by the end of this month by all means or else you may risk getting a lower score (which is what happened to me after I canceled my date.)

I think the best thing to do would be to take an NBME every 4-5 days with FA/Kaplan/UW/Pathoma or Goljan review in between.

The best advice would be to do what you're doing right now coz it obviously seems to be working rather well.

I think since your 1st NBME was so high, you can really choose but keep 15 and 16 for the end (at least in my opinion).

I haven't taken the exam yet but I think the NBME order shouldn't matter much as they're all scaled.
