Star Kaplan vs DIT vs PASS program

Though majority of the posts in this forums has been from self study for USMLE step 1....I would like to get feedback from those who've gone through any of these programs or who know more about it. I am currently torn between a self study approach, a live Kaplan prep, purchasing 2012 DIT or PASS program Chicago.

[Assuming adequate supplementation with UW and Qbank] and a 4 months prep timeline. Target score 230+

1) Is the Kaplan retreat(6 weeks) a viable option ?

2) Purchasing a 2012 DIT worth it?

3) Attending a PASS program 4 weeks?

*OR Self study with Kaplan LN, includeing Pathoma and Goljian?

(Any suggestions on best approach from your perspective is absolutely welcome)
