Thank you Lara.
I'm having palpitations. Just wanna get done. Pushing for a 250+, but the score at the end of the page says 247. If I use the 1.4 formula, it becomes 250. But that's prolly just me trying to make myself feel better.

It means a lot, thank you for the confidence boost! Yes, 21st is the earliest date. If I delay more, I will go more nuts that I am. Plus I'm more and more inclined to think that FA is THE most important part of our prep. Be it NBME or UW. FA makes you. Kaplan was good background. FA is the exam I think.
That said, going to give FA a final quick but good read and going to KILL THAT EXAM on Wednesday. When is yours?

It's a great score dockhi!!! Just BE CONFIDENT now. I think that's going to really help in boosting the score >250 for the exam day! I know it must be hard with it coming soon, but just think how good it will be once your done!
And your plan seems good. That's what I will probably do last week too, just FA after form 13 and UWSA 2. Pushed my exam for dec though. Ahh i hope i can do as good as you too!
Good luck, and also looking forward to your "step 1 experience post" too.

THANK YOU. I made some silly mistakes too. Guess confidence helps erase those silly errors. Hope it's a good exam so I can help all you guys too! Sigh. Going to give my bestest to the exam. Thank you guys! Really needed the motivation. It's really odd when it begins to take a toll on one's health. Hope this dark phase bears fruit. Hard work never goes to waste.

I did UW wrong questions very fast for a day before the NBME, and had done FA. At this point, just review the stuff. And don't freak out about the score, instead invest in revision!!!! I have no time for FA and have three days left!
