Do FA 2-3 times & UW once again but swiftly.
Reading fast and multiple times helps more since you scored 249 in NBME 12, you can hit 260 i feel.
Read your weaknesses first, i think that will surely bump up your score.
Delaying can be risky as one tends to forget more as time passes so better assess yourself and if you feel confident now you can go for it when you want..
Its the confidence that will help you tackle the 308(technically 300) questions on the D-day.
