If you actually learn "everything" from Kaplan's material of all the subjects, I am sure you will make up for the lost time. Kaplan really has all the important information that you need to know. And as you are doing this course, I would recommend that you keep your FA with you and add some important information that is not found in FA from the kaplan notes. Then after the course, you should do FA alone with UW, and then take the exam ASAP. Do not delay it too much after taking the course. And take NBMEs to assess your standing. Hope this answers your question.

Yes. I would think that Kaplan Live Course would make up for your med school shortcomings.
