Planning 50 Day Plan

Hi Everyone,

I have 50 days until Step 1 on September 10th and here is the plan:

1. Pathoma - Finish by Friday of next week.
2. Kaplan Q Bank: 50-100Q daily until August 10th.
3. Kaplan 2012 Lecture Notes: Start in 1 week, finish first read by August 10th.
4: FA: Skim 25 pages a day
5: DIT: Start August 10th and plan on going through the course 2x
6. UW: Start on August 11th, need to finish all of it by September 8th.
7. At least 3 NBME tests along the way.

I have been working on some cutting edge research in ophthalmology for the past few years in Europe. Unfortunately, I have been completely out of touch with general medicine for at least two years. My pharmacology and physiology knowledge is lacking at the moment. Is Kaplan plus First Aid enough for pharm or should I also consider something like the Lange Flash Cards or DIT Pharm Lectures?

I have had a lot of trouble sticking to schedules in the past so I am going to start posting progress here at least a few times per week. Good luck to everyone preparing right now.

Also, what score should I be aiming for to become the next CEO of Yahoo?
I could use about 70 million right now . If that doesn't work out it'd be nice to match in pathology.
