Default 40 days out, buy U World now or wait until 30 day subscription? my supposed reasoning, and practice NMBE score inside

Hey fam need some advice
I'm just entering my dedicated study period which is about 40 days. I haven't purchased U world yet, as i was using kaplan Q bank and wanted to save U world for dedicated time. took first practice NMBE and scored 220 the other day. Everyone is telling me to get U world and start Qs already from there.
but I'm enjoying the studying I'm currently doing. Which is going on second pass of first aid and pathoma and just making flash cards/notes for things i can't remember clearly. Im thinking about waiting to get U world for 2 reasons.

1. save money by getting 30 day subscription instead of 60 days since I'm 40 days away anyway.
2. i want to do random / timed mode for ALL of world, and would like to finish second pass of FA +pathoma first (or nearly finish ) which is estimated at about 20 days from now. thus 4 weeks out ill be finishing second pass +doing times random Qs every day. and the last week and a half for sure its purely U world, also timed random.

Thoughts, advice?

I'd definitely start UW right away if I were you: 1- unlike kaplan qbank, UW's explanations are full of gold and might take more time than you expect, especially if you'll annotate
2- you can always buy 1 month then extend for a week if needed
3- you need to do at least 1 nbme after you're completely done with UW (including your incorrects) and fix the weaknesses suggested by it

also, if you already did pathoma a couple of times, i don't recommend doing it again, except for the first 3 chapters maybe. other than that, i'd stick to FA, UW and NBME's in the upcoming 40 days. this is coming from someone who exhausted a lot of low yield resources
